Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By COLIN HURST news@sun­daysport.co.uk

WATCH­DOGS are to probe a claim that a sex-mad mayor told a woman she could have speed bumps on her road…if she had sex with him!

A Com­mis­sion on Ethics said it has found prob­a­ble cause that David Stew­art vi­o­lated laws in the so-called “humps for humps” case.

An of­fi­cial state­ment said Stew­art used or at­tempted to use his po­si­tion to se­cure a ben­e­fit for him­self.

The find­ing means he can be hauled be­fore a judge to an­swer the al­le­ga­tions.

Re­sign

Stew­art – mayor of Lan­tana, Florida, since 2000 – has the op­tion to set­tle the case or have a hear­ing be­fore a judge.

If he opts for the hear­ing and loses he could face re­moval from of­fice.

Stew­art has de­nied the al­le­ga­tions, telling a com­mis­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tor: “I think some­one is try­ing to en­cour­age her to do it.

“I don’t think that this was her idea.”

The res­i­dent mak­ing the ac­cu­sa­tion, Catherine Padilla, is call­ing for him to re­sign.

She said: “The mayor should be ashamed for what he did. I think it’s time he steps down. He needs to be ac­count­able for his ac­tions and he needs to do the right thing and step down.”

The speed bumps did get to be in­stalled in Ms Padilla’s street.
