Update on Coy Privette

So what DID happen to Cabarrus County's most famous abetter of prostitution who also moonlights as a county commissioner, Baptist preacher, and megaphone-wielder for the "moral majority"?

When last we heard, Mr. Privette had pled guilty to aiding and abetting prostitution and had promised he'd resign his seat on the Cabarrus County Commission once he sold his house. According to Privette, he and his wife planned to move into a retirement village out of the county. The local Republican Party was pressuring him to resign, though his term of office on the county commission doesn't end until 2010.

Turns out Mr. Privette did sell his house, but he ain't going nowhere, especially he's not vacating his seat on the County Commission. The local Republicans are flabbergasted. The chair of the county GOP said, "It became obvious pretty quickly that he wasn't going to be a man of his word."
