Ian Stafford resigned as mayor of Preesall over the underwear thefts.
There will always be an England!
The delightful thing: "A former mayor of a Lancashire town has admitted breaking into women's homes and stealing their underwear.
"Ian Stafford, 59, of Sandycroft Place, Preesall, resigned as mayor of Preesall when he was arrested in connection with the missing garments.
"He pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary at Preston Crown Court."
English politicos are so much more creative than their counterparts in America.
