It's becoming clearer every week that by his fourth term as mayor of
Memphis, Willie Herenton was in it for the money. In May 2004, five months into his fourth term and embattled on many
fronts, Herenton asked finance director Joseph Lee to process his
request for a payment of $72,000 for 108 "carryover vacation days not
taken during the last term due to the nature of my responsibilities as
mayor for the city of Memphis."
