Larry Langford update

Here’s an AP story on charges against Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford.

Prosecutors claim a greedy, power-drunk Langford accepted bribes totaling some $235,000 – a chunk of it for upscale clothes and jewelry – while serving as president of the Jefferson County Commission before he was elected mayor. In exchange, they say, Langford steered $7.1 million in bond business to a political crony’s investment banking firm.
