Former baby-faced mayor gets house arrest for voting

Posted By on Thu, Nov 6, 2014 at 1:53 PM

Patrick Cannon was put on house arrest today for casting a ballot in the midterm elections. Apparently, he didn't know that convicted felons don't get a say on who's in office and thus violated his bond. He'll be wearing electronic jewelry until Nov. 18, when he goes to prison for corruption.

According to WBTV, Cannon's attorney called it "an honest mistake." An honest mistake from a guy who posted a smiling selfie on Facebook a week after pleading guilty to a federal charge.

Did you catch that new goatee he's sporting? Someone doesn't want to be known as Baby Face in prison.
