Corrupt politician commits suicide at Miami Herald

Arthur Teele, Jr., former Miami City Commissioner, committed suicide Wednesday in the lobby of the Miami Herald building. Teele had been indicted for fraud and money laundering.

[Teele] and an electrical contractor were indicted July 14th on charges of lying to get more than $20 million in contracts at Miami International Airport that were supposed to go to minority-owned businesses. Teele is black. — WKMG Local 6

Teele had entered a not guilty plea to the charges last week.

This wasn’t the first time he got himself in trouble, either. Last August he ran an unmarked police car off the road and threatened to shoot a police detective, and apparently had a thing for transsexual prostitutes.

Ah, one less crooked politician. Now if only every crooked politician would kill themselves.
