New Twist to Tire Slashing

The big election news about the tire slashing that occurred on vans that were hired by the Republicans to take people to the polls has only gotten more serious over time. Five young men have been charged with felony accounts of vandalism. Even more serious, one of the young men is the son of a Democratic congresswomen Gwen Moore; another the son of a former Mayor Marvin Pratt.

For their actions the five could get up to a $10,000 fine and up to 3 1/2 years in prison.
