City News – Larry O’Brienjevich

January 4, 2009

It seems that Canadian politicians don’t wait for Halloween to dress up as their favorite foreign leader. First Stephen Harper spends a couple of years as Bush Jr. Jr., then Danny Chavez brings a bit of South American flava to St. John’s. Now it seems that Ottawa has decided to take up ‘the Chicago way.’

The CBC reported that Mayor Larry O’Brien will be tried for corruption this April on charges that he offered a rival an important job at the National Parole Board in exchange for stepping aside from the 2006 mayoral election. At least he thought ahead: if things go badly for Mr. O’Brien this spring, it would help to have some friends on the national parole board.
