A Florida mayor is accused of soliciting sex from a constituent in exchange for speed bumps, according to the Florida Commission on Ethics and local reports.
In a press release on Oct. 24, the commission found that there was probable cause to find that David Stewart, the mayor of Lantana, Florida, "misused his position to attempt to obtain a sexual benefit for himself."
Stewart solicited sex from a constituent "based on an understanding his vote, official action, or judgment would be influenced," the commission said.
Stewart did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but he denied the allegation to The Palm Beach Post. The Florida Commission on Ethics did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Stewart allegedly told Padilla he would install speed bumps on the condition she had sex with him.
She declined and said the thirsty mayor later called to say the offer was still on the table if she ever wanted speed bumps in her community. Again, she declined.
