His father paid off the fines.
Equally disturbing was Singletary's pitch in April as he passed the hat to raise campaign money in a city park. He implored the audience to kick in $20 apiece.
"You're all going to need me in Traffic Court, am I right about that?" he asked the crowd.

The history of the city's Traffic Court is not a proud one. President Judge Louis Vignola was convicted of taking bribes in 1978. After another corruption scandal in the mid-1980s, state Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert N.C. Nix Jr. had to come in and clean up the system.
