Mayor Of Florida City Says Marijuana Growing In Yard Isn't Hers

On the list of people likely to be growing marijuana on their property, an 84-year-old mayor doesn’t rank near the top. But federal agents found the illegal plant growing on the woman’s property in central Florida. The incident forced her to defend herself at an Oak Hill city commission meeting, at which she said she suspects a political enemy tried to set her up.

According to an AP report, agents found the marijuana in a kicked-in section of fence in her yard. She has not been charged of a crime and investigators don’t believe she knew the plants were there.

What’s the most devious political prank you’ve heard of?
