White Plains Mayor

My town's mayor is in court on domestic abuse charges. There have been calls for his resignation.
Personally, I do not think he should be forced out unless he is convicted. In general, our country's system of publicizing/disclosing arrests before conviction amounts to an extra-judicial punishment. If a person is convicted of a crime (or better yet, a felony) then by all means, name and shame them. But don't drag a presumed innocent person's name through the mud.
