The mayor of Charlotte, N.C., Patrick Cannon, has been arrested on corruption charges. The fact that Cannon is a Democrat seems to be a piece of information that some media outlets don’t seem to think their readers need to know, and it’s truly amazing:
Who is up for another game of “name that party”?
I'm really really wondering what the party affiliation of Charlotte's mayor might be. How will we ever know?—
