Arizona

Apparently some crazy shit is developing in the Arizona town of Quartzsite (pop. 3,600), with a mayor investigating corruption in the city's books, and finding that every year, $250,000 of the town's budget is being going to paychecks of unidentified people. The cops have declared a sort of "martial law" (though they obviously don't characterize it as such) and have roughed up some local activist. The mayor, who campaigned on cleaning up the corruption, has been suspended by the city council, and they are trying to recall him. Should be interesting to see how this develops.....
