A Florida mayor was arrested Tuesday on accusations that she used a dead woman’s expired handicapped parking placard to park her vehicle at City Hall.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office released video that shows Davenport Mayor Teresa Bradley, 60, parking her Ford Crown Victoria in a handicapped spot at Davenport City Hall on Monday and exiting her car without any assistance.
Deputies said the handicapped placard number displayed an expiration date of October 2018, but it was determined that the true expiration date was Oct. 30, 2013.
Authorities said the placard had been issued to Evelyn Klinger Letterman, of Davenport, who died on Aug. 29, 2012.
Deputies obtained a search warrant for the mayor’s home and said they discovered two handicapped parking placards — one that had been issued to Letterman and another that had been issued to someone else who died in 2015. (Read more from “Mayor Busted for Using Dead Woman’s Handicap Sticker” HERE)
