Lovely Warren, the mayor of Rochester NY, is still in the middle of guiding the city through a pandemic and the infamous Daniel Prude incident. Her administration was in the national spotlight after details of the fatal incident emerged after months of secrecy. She faces a primary election challenge next month and now some real trouble at home.
The Mayor’s husband was been caught up in a narcotics investigation. Timothy Granison was charged with: two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and one count of criminal possession of a firearm, after his apartment was searched, according to police. Dublin is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday afternoon.
Police have stated that the arrest has nothing to do with politics, but acknowledge the timing does create that appearance. Granison was not the target of the investigation, but police report that his involvement became clear as the police work unfolded. Mayor Warren stated, “I’ve done nothing wrong.”
