We learned of a recent robbery at the home of mayoral candidate and former St Paul City Council member Melvin Carter III (DFL). During the theft of various items we understand two handguns are now in the circulation with the seedy underbelly community.
We have made a number of calls into the Carter Campaign, but the phone only seems to work in one direction.
As we continue our coverage of this election, we intend to provide every campaign the benefit of the doubt and ask questions in order to better understand the situation and issues associate, but when silence is the response the only conclusions to be draw come from the information as presented to us.
We hope a small chiding will change the resulting perspective.
