West Texas Mayor Quits Post, Moves to Mexico With Undocumented Lover

JW_Lown It looks like undocumented Mexican workers not only want to steal your jobs, but also your so-very-cute politicians.

Just when we thought “coming out” was still not very “in” among some high-profile individuals, the mayor of a West Texas city abruptly resigned Wednesday after acknowledging being involved in a relationship with an undocumented Mexican. According to the local press, J.W. Lown, 32, mayor of San Angelo, said he didn’t want to take the oath of office knowing he was “aiding and assisting” someone who is not a U.S. citizen. He was to be sworn in Tuesday but did not show up for the ceremony.

“I left a home. I left a ranch. I left a promising political career,” Lown told the AP.

The pair are said now to be in Mexico, reportedly living la vida loca waiting for a visa to return. Ah… l’amour!
