Other Mayors in the News: Preesall, Lancashire

From the Lancashire Telegraph in merry old England:

The mayor of a Lancashire village who got his “sexual kicks” by sneaking into bedrooms to steal and violate women’s underwear has been jailed for two years after he was caught out by a secret camera.

Church-going Ian Stafford, 59, was a highly respected member of the community and Mayor of Preesall, near Fleetwood, before his “bluntly revolting” behaviour was uncovered, Preston Crown Court heard.

Isn't it nice to know we don't have a monopoly on twisted pols.

Huh.. and he looks like such a pleasant, normal bloke...

Yes, a face you could trust with your keys. Just like our own Mayor.

Ian Stafford certainly fits the standard issue feeble-faced profile of the classic pervert, in stark contrast with our own esteemed Col. Williams; physical appearance aside they certainly were both shaken from the same bag. Would Mr. Stafford have gone on to bigger, more heinous fame had he possessed a pug more like Marlon Brando's than Marty Feldman's? Low self-esteem seems to be the only thing that has kept his compulsions set at merely lewd instead of cranked to deadly. Too bad for all the normal people in England who have the misfortune to have four eyes, a weak chin and ears that look like somebody left their car doors open.

Notice that I didn't say a word in my original posting about the physical appearance of the former mayor of Preesall.

But since he's not likely to be gardening for the neighbours any time soon, perhaps he should consider getting serious about growing some facial hair.
