by Derek de Koff August 10, 2016


As we reported last week, Fairfax City Mayor Richard “Scott” Silverthorne was recently arrested for offering meth to cops in exchange for sexual favors. In an emotional tailspin ever since getting a cancer diagnosis last year, Silverstone filed for bankruptcy after losing his recruiting job for the National Association of Manufacturers.

According to a statement from the Fairfax City Police Department, detectives first approached Silverthorne  through a website, and during their exchanges, the mayor promised “a group sexual encounter” with the men in exchange for his drugs.

On Monday, Silverthorne told NBC, “My faith in God and myself will get me through the biggest challenge of my life. I ask that people keep me in their prayers.”
