Former Mayor In Georgia Arrested For Nudity

Naked time got a little too public for a former Georgia mayor.

Authorities arrested Mark Musselwhite and charged him with public indecency last weekend after state Department of Natural Resources officers found him sitting nude at his Rabun County campsite.

Officers had received a complaint about a naked man walking along a nearby road earlier in the day, but the 43-year-old Musselwhite said he was not the same man. Musselwhite told the DNR officer he had been swimming in a nearby creek.

The Republican was elected to the Gainesville City Council in 2000, where he served for six years, including a stint as mayor. He lost a bid for a state Senate seat in 2006.

Musselwhite could not be reached for comment by The Associated Press on Saturday.

    What a coincidence! Two naked men in the same area at the same time!

    What does Republican and nudity have in common? Why is it when someone exhibits weird behavior if they are a Republican, their party affiliation ends up printed? However, the media has praised MJ over the weekend when in fact he slept with young boys by his own admission. Was MJ Democrat or Republican? It obviously is newsworthy according to the AP or are they just reporting according to their own liberal agenda?
