Frank Scurlock is running for mayor of New Orleans. Frank Scurlock was also allegedly caught masturbating while in the backseat of an Uber by his female driver. Frank Scurlock will most likely not become the mayor of New Orleans. 

The incident allegedly occurred on February 10 when Scurlock was picked up from a West Hollywood hotel. While on a freeway near Santa Monica, the Uber driver heard noises coming from the backseat. The driver guessed that Scurlock was pleasuring himself and pulled the car over. Upon getting out of the vehicle and opening the backseat door, she allegedly found Scurlock​ with his pants to his ankles, shirt pulled up because he didn't want to make a mess on himself, and his hands around his erect penis. 

Formal charges were not filed until August 31 due to some issues around jurisdiction, and the would-be mayor will be arraigned in Los Angeles Criminal Court on October 16. If found guilty, he must register as a sex offender. 

Scurlock's lean mayoral platform, which is posted on his website, runs only two paragraphs long. "My platform is simple. I’ll fix what’s broken and honor history," it begins. Honoring history, to Scurlock, translates to preserving statues and monuments to the Confederacy and white supremacy. He also makes vague mention of fixing a "dysfunctional" city hall and making the city safer. Scurlock's campaign slogan is "Let's Make New Orleans Fun Again!" 

Scurlock, in a campaign video posted to his Facebook account, talks of wanting to "Uberize" the police department. I'm just going that leave that alone.
