GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport Mayor Brent Warr, who is under indictment on several counts of Katrina fraud, will not run for re-election.
Late Tuesday afternoon, the mayor's office released a videotaped message where Warr explained his decision.
Warr and his wife Laura are accused of defrauding the government and an insurance company over losses they suffered during Hurricane Katrina. The government alleges the couple did not live in their beachfront home prior to Katrina. The Warrs say they did.
