Mayor Sends Cops to Break up Parties – They Found His Wife at One of Them

After Illinois’ Governor prohibited all social gatherings on March 20th, Alton, Illinois Mayor Brant Walker sent his town’s PD to bust up a party at a local watering hole early Sunday morning. Guess who was one of the party-goers busted? The mayor’s wife! Mayor Walker didn’t show any leniency, either, telling the police chief to treat his wife, Shannon, “as he would any citizen violating the ‘stay-at-home’ order and to ensure she receives no special treatment.” Mayor Walker issued a public apology saying “I’m embarrassed by this incident.” Shannon Walker was cited for reckless conduct, which is a misdemeanor.
