This goes into the “What the hell was he thinking?” file…According to multiple sources Racine Mayor Gary Becker was arrested yesterday for solicitation of a minor. This alleged incident took place outside of a Milwaukee mall and the Mayor is currently being held in Kenosha County Jail on a $165,000 cash bond.

According to the Racine Post the mayor’s office had no comment as of 8:04 this morning.

I feel bad for the Becker family at this time and hope that this will not harm them in any way.
