Mayoral rally in Mount Vernon turns violent
Supporters of rival Mount Vernon mayoral candidates Ernie Davis and Maureen Walker got into a shoving match during a rally yesterday.
During the rally, City Council Candidate Samuel Rivers brought out documents showing Davis is more than $30,000 behind in taxes and that a lien was brought against him over a condo he owns in Yonkers.
Also, a new mailer from Walker supporters, criticizes Davis for failing to turn over donations he collected for relief after Hurricane Katrina.
The allegations of corruption inflamed the supporters of Davis and Walker.
Davis says he has nothing to hide and that the Katrina funds are accounted for. Davis also admits to the owing back taxes, but says it won't affect his ability to lead.
Walker and Rivers also allege that there were voter irregularities in the September primaries so they're requesting federal election monitors be present on Election Day next week.
