.....So city council candidate Dave Howerton had (still loading) 19 criminal counts against him in 1999 alone. But how about the record of Vincent Brown, a candidate for mayor of Durham:

"A statewide criminal records search turned up more than 100 charges over the past 15 years that matched Brown's name, current and prior address, and the two birth dates he has used.

"Most of the charges he has faced are misdemeanors: writing worthless checks, simple assault, fraud, trespassing, providing fictitious information to a police officer, possessing a weapon on school grounds, violating probation, failing to pay income tax, and driving while impaired."

Full disclosure: Brown is a "Republican in a town traditionally dominated by Democrats."
