Houston Mayor Annise Parker flipping and flopping about what to do with the red light cameras.
First she cut them off. Then, faced with breach of contract, she turned them back on. Now, with an election approaching she's asking City Council to turn them off.
Classic politics, that is. If the city shuts them down and ends up writing a check to ATS, Mayor Parker can blame City Council. If the city leaves the cameras up and running, she can tell the voters that she wanted to turn them off but City Council wouldn't listen.
Come on, Mayor Parker, go down to the Medical Center and get a spine replacement. Try being a leader for once.
