According to the Miami Herald,Mayor Beth Flansbaum-Talabisco of Tamarac, Florida was arrested on March 9th on bribery and other corruption charges. With her arrest, she was suspended from office.
Prosecutors charged Flansbaum-Talabisco, 57, for allegedly selling her vote to developers who contributed $21,000 through a political action committee to smear her opponents and support her 2006 mayoral campaign.
She was replaced on the Tamarac City Commission today by Marion Swenson, the former City Clerk.
Mayor Talabisco joined Bloomberg’s group in early 2007 according to their press release. With her arrest, she is now eligible to join the rest of the other Illegal Mayors featured on the Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors webpage.
