Embattled ex-California mayor arrested at airport on numerous charges

FOX: A former California mayor was arrested Sunday at the San Francisco International Airport, where he arrived from a vacation in South America, his attorney said.

Anthony Silva, the former mayor of Stockton, was arrested while he was returning from a trip to Colombia, his attorney, Allen Sawyer, told KCRA-TV.

An arrest warrant was issued for Silva on Thursday on charges of profiteering, embezzlement, misappropriation of public funds and grand theft, among other charges. He will face the charges in San Joaquin County.

Silva left for his vacation on Wednesday, a day before FBI agents and investigators from the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office served search warrants at Silva’s home and the Stockton Kids Club, which Silva used to run when it was known as the Boys and Girls Club.

  1. This just proves that the government will always go after a crooked Republican while in the meantime the left Crooked Democrat Reverend Al Sharpton walks around free as a black bird!

  2. STOCKTON?? WHO’D HAVE GUESSED THIS??

    LOW-LIFE CENTER OF CALIFORNIA!! SORRY TO THOSE WHO LIVE THERE; I DID FOR 3 YEARS AND CAME OUT ALIVE BUT WITHOUT MY GUNS – STOLEN BY ONE OF MANY STOCKTON BOTTOM FEEDERS!!!

    IF YOU’RE HEADING NORTH OR SOUTH AND HAVE TO PASS THRU STOCKTON, DON’T STOP!! MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A LEAK BEFORE OR HOLD ON UNTIL LATER, KEEP YOUR GAS TANK FULL AND PEDAL TO THE METAL!!

  3. He was just trying to help himself to all the benefits of being an elected official! Both major political potties are rotten to the core and full of nasty smelling stuff.

  4. If he’s a criminal, throw the book at him, why should I care?

    What bothers me is all the crooks bigger and more obvious than the Goodyear Blimp that are friggin worry-free celebrities!
    (Lois Lerner, Hillary Clinton, Sharpton, Obama, etc etc …)

  5. You see, this is what happens if you are a Republican mayor in a democrat state. You see all that corruption around you and you think “gee, I want to play too”, only to find out you really aren’t part of their club. So they make an example out of you so it looks like they are doing their job, rooting out all that evil. what a schmuck.

  6. Nobody ever said that there weren’t crooked Republican politicians it’s just that there are so many more Democrat ones.

    Actually what concerns me more is that the California Republican Party has a “Central Committee”. Solidarity California Comrades!
