Nation, World React to Patrick Cannon Arrest
Charlotte mayor makes headlines for all the wrong reasons
A sampling of the national (and global) coverage of Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon’s arrest yesterday on federal corruption charges and subsequent resignation:
The BBC. (The $48,000 in bribes converts to £28,953, if you were wondering.)
Reuters, with a story reported by frequent Charlotte magazine contributor Emily Harris.
And BuzzFeed, which—God love ‘em—worked the feminine hygiene product angle.
If you come across additional coverage from global outlets—and not just running the AP or Reuters story—let me know at email@example.com. I’ll update this as needed.
