To what county office do you go to get your reputation back ?
A prosecutor in the St. Lawrence County DA's office has been found to have mishandled and misled grand jurors last year in getting an indictment that led to the push-him-out-the-door resignation of controversial Gouvereur Mayor Chris Miller.
That mayor had been a disappointment to some and his own prior record was given little scrutiny by voters before his surprise election.
Insiders wanted him out, and now the Mayor is former trustee Ron McDougall, the husband of former mayor and now high ranking state official Diedre Scozzafava.
It's widely thought grand juries are just a rubber stamp for the DA, but in this case, someone challenged the system and won a victory of sorts.
