Drugs and politics begin to mix in the suburb of Fairfax, Virginia. CNN news is reporting that the mayor of Fairfax, Richard “Scott” Silverthorne (age 50) has been arrested. He is charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

In addition to selling meth, the mayor is also a part of a sex scandal. CNN news is also reporting that Silverthorne was caught distributing meth for sexual favors. Police were able to catch him through a website that sets up sexual encounters between men. Silverthorne allegedly agreed to bring other men and drugs to a local hotel in Tyson Corner. This arrest led to others, as police were able to find his alleged suppliers.

According to WTOP, a news release said the following:

“A suspect was identified who was allegedly distributing methamphetamine through a website used to arrange for casual sexual encounters between men… During the course of communication, the suspect advised that he could provide methamphetamine for sexual encounters. Undercover detectives agreed to meet the suspect for a group sexual encounter in exchange for methamphetamine. The suspect arranged to bring methamphetamine along with other men to the engagement.”

Silverthorne is very active in his community. He is serving his third term as mayor of Fairfax. He is also a substitute teacher for public schools in the area. Silverthorne comes from a family that is very active. His father served as mayor in the area in the 1970s and 1980s. However, Silverthorne has also been having some troubles lately. The Washington post reports that he was laid off from his job with the National Association of Manufacturers. He also filed for bankruptcy after owing a $58,000 debt and moved in with a friend.

Silverthorne’s court date is set for Wednesday, where he is scheduled to be arraigned. For now, he has been released. As this story develops, one can only wonder how the city of Fairfax will be affected.
