SAN DIEGO — A federal jury yesterday convicted San Diego's new acting mayor and a city councilman of taking payoffs from a strip-club owner to help repeal a "no-touching" law at nude clubs, the latest embarrassment to a city awash in scandal.
Michael Zucchet, who became interim mayor over the weekend, was found guilty of conspiracy, extortion and fraud on his first business day in office. He was immediately suspended, his attorney said.
Councilman Ralph Inzunza, who was convicted of the same charges, also was suspended.
