Racist mayor abuses office

When I saw that headline in my feed reader, I thought - what has Ken Livingstone done this time?

But nope - it's about a mayor in Tennessee. For goodness sake - elected officials should be smart enough not to do this:
The complaint accuses Mayor Danny Crosby of frequently using racial slurs since his election in 2004. In one instance, the complaint said Crosby swore in a new police officer on Martin Luther King Day and said, "Happy James Earl Ray Day," a reference to King's assassin.
