Claremont Mayor threatens to call police on Girl Scouts selling cookies without a permit

Somehow, I missed this brilliant story from last week, regarding Claremont, CA deputy mayor Ellen Taylor, who was riled at the sight of Girl Scouts selling cookies in front of her husband’s law office:

Ms. Taylor first asked if the group had a permit from the city to operate at the location, announced that she was deputy Mayor of Claremont and threatened to call the police if the Girl Scouts did not cease operations, [parent Pam] Gavin said.  [Claremont Courier via Claremont Insider]

Of course, the city of Claremont handled Taylor’s behavior in proper fashion: just a few days later, they elected her Mayor.
