has anyone heard of anything going on with our ol' buddy willie herenton today?

i'm hearing from several different people that his number with the FBI may be coming up, or has already come up, today?

meant to say "heard the same rumors"
Posted: Jul 17, 2008 3:52 pm
people have been calling the newsroom all day with this rumor

I wish his number with the FBI was .308fmj.

...meaning he's (allegedly) being "interviewed" by the FBI or he's being indicted? Or the FBI is calling him up to talk about the Sex in the City movie?

One of these.

The phones at the mayor's office aren't being answered and nobody can find him.

i would think that if anything were really going on today, it would have happened by now....damn, damn, damn.

either that, or willie's floated the rumor himself just to watch everyone scramble.

The rumor came into the Flyer this morning from an "employee at the courthouse" who said he saw the mayor in handcuffs. I'm sure the same guy called all the media. No substance yet.

I found the answer here.

Unfortunately, I beleive it might only be part of the MDA Lock Up, which happened today in Memphis. Actual cops come and take community and business leaders away in handcuffs and they have to have raised x number of dollars to go free.

False alarm.

mayor will be on the radio (wdia 1070 AM I believe) to address the rumor, which started on the radio.

I, for one, am outraged at the misuse of our public servants time (and our tax dollars that pay their salaries) for flashy pagaentry disguised as a "good cause".

i am also always upset that firemen are begging in the streets with their boots "for a good cause."
