Well, now that it's national news, it's worth mentioning that the mayor of the small town of Waldron has been arrested for trading water for sex. According to news reports, 72-year-old Troy Anderson convinced two women with overdue water bills to sleep with him for anywhere from $20 – $100 per encounter. One woman said this had been going on for 8 – 10 years.
One is left to wonder how much water costs in Waldron that her bill couldn't be paid in 10 years.
As far as clever coverage goes, CNN does a fair job of writing a headline with: Cops: Mayor tapped water customers for sex
But MSNBC wins the award for tacky humor with : Flushed out: Mayor arrested in water-for-sex scheme
