Moderator for the event will be Judge Joe Brown, the former Criminal Court Judge and TV celebrity judge. Inasmuch as Herenton is trying to re-establish himself in the local firmament with a network of charter schools, and Brown recently floated a trial balloon about running for the Senate, the roast event could serve both purposes.
Among the roasters will be Mayor A C Wharton and what party chair Bryan Carson and vice chair Dave Cambron promise will be a whole host of other local political celebrities.
Hmmm. Maybe mark this as the preliminary bout of the 2014 political season.
