US mayor involved in cross-dressing scandal


Racy photos purportedly showing East Cleveland Mayor Eric Brewer wearing women’s clothing have surfaced online just days before the primary elections.

In some pictures, Brewer is in seductive poses, wearing high-heels, women’s lingerie, wigs and bright red lipstick. The images were reportedly taken from his personal computer.

However, the candidate will not confirm or deny whether the photos are of him.

“While I am not and will not authenticate any of the pictures, since it appears as if they and the e-mails my opponent has caused to distributed are personal in nature, the fact is they are embarrassing to our city,” Brewer said.

Instead, the incumbent mayor accused his rival in next week’s election, City County President Gary Norton, and some city officials of distributing the images.
