I always thought Mayor McCheese was the worst mayor in the country. He's completely beholden to a corporation and has been letting the Hamburglar terrorize the streets of McDonaldland for years.
But has he even gotten so drunk that he broke a breathalizer machine? Nope. Has he ever flashed his tits to a crowded bar? Again, as far as I know, no.
So it would seem there are a handful of other mayors out there who blow the competition out of the water when it comes to sleaze, corruption and general bad decisions. There are ten of them to be exact, and they comprise Spike's list of the Top Ten Misbehaving Mayors.

District of Columbia Councilman Marion Barry found himself mired in more political, legal and personal drama Sunday after his arrest late Saturday on charges that he was stalking a female companion.
Barry's latest run-in with the law centers on his relationship with political consultant Donna Watts-Brighthaupt, who alleges that he continues to approach her even though they split up a few months ago…
Barry, 73, was charged with one count of "misdemeanor stalking," said Sgt. David Schlosser, a Park Police spokesman.
Misdemeanor stalking? Nice try, Mr. Barry. Normally, that'd be worth me putting at least a little bit of thought into this post and making a cursory attempt to come up with a decent joke.
But, sadly, you were batting way out of your league this weekend. As it stands, I'm not even putting the effort in to search for an actual picture of you.
Keep at it, though. You'll hit gold eventually. I'm sure of it.

Now that the universities are closing down and their students are being set loose upon the nation's beach town, please don't forget that our nation's capitol, Washington D.C. — scenically located along the eastern banks of the Potomac River — which kind of makes it a beach town. A kind of swampy-ish beach town, but a beach town none the less. So, in a way, it's the perfect Spring Break destination. Cabo San Lucas ain't got nothing on D.C. as far as crazy party antics go. For example…
Bill Clinton gets some from Monica Lewinsky
Don't even front like you've never been there. You know how it goes. If it's late enough at night and no one else is around, you sometimes find yourself going a little further with friends and co-workers than you thought you would. It happens, dude. It happens! You just gotta move on with your life and hope that the other person doesn't go blabbing to her friends.
And that none of her friends will go secretly recording the details of what happened between you and her and then hand the tapes off to some guy who's been trying to get you fired for years. Cause that could totally ruin your week. Not to mention get you impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives.
And nothing busts up a Spring Break drinking binge like a federal impeachment.
