I've talked about Mound Bayou - a small town in Mississippi founded by Black settlers in the late 19th century. Located in the Mississippi Delta region it recently made the news down there for a case of political corruption.
An ex-mayor of Mound Bayou embezzled some municipal owned property and money for a restaurant he opened in a nearby city. Down there it seems the local authorities mainly a state agency and Bolivar county took an interest in this crime.
The former Mayor Kennedy Johnson could fave up to 20 years in jail and $5000 fine per count.
