Choosing a New Mayor in Scranton
SCRANTON, Pa. -- One week after Scranton's mayor resigned and pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges, leaders are hammering out the details of succession. Scranton City Council has come up with a plan to decide who should be the next mayor. Council held a special caucus Tuesday afternoon to discuss how the vacancy in the mayor's office here will be filled. It came up with a plan, but it could still be challenged in court, and not everyone agrees with it.
