POTEET, Texas - A city council in South Texas on Monday unanimously voted to remove a registered sex offender as mayor, hours after the man was released from jail on new child sex charges.
The Poteet City Council declared Mayor Lino Donato's position vacant because he has missed three consecutive council meetings, city attorney Frank Garza said. Council members installed the mayor pro-tem to act as mayor until a decision is made on how to replace Donato

I say no to the kicking the guy out for an arrest. We are innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around, and to start taking messures before hand is heading in a direction that is not easily reversed.
Shouldn't being arrested for crimes against anyone in a sexual nature be automatic dismissal at least untill the trial is over? f for some reaon he is found innocent, by all means give him his job back.

I didn't know a sex offender could become mayor in the first place. If they had no problem with it the first time, what suprises them this time? Maybe Iam missing something. Vote him out I say. It was long overdue.
