Youngstown, Ohio, Mayor John A. McNally was found guilty of crimes involving the public trust and The Vindy's top political writer, Bertram de Souza, criticizes him for refusing to leave office. McNally has sponsored legislation to force an entire neighborhood of predominantly African-American residents from their homes to build an industrial park not far  from downtown (and has even threatened to use eminent domain).
