Jailed pol: A.C. should pay legal bills

July 14, 2009 4:39:49 AM PDT
Sex, lies and videotape were all in a day's work, according to Atlantic City's jailed former City Council president.

Craig Callaway, who pleaded guilty last year to luring a council rival to a motel and secretly taping him having sex with a hooker, wants the city to pay his legal bills and any civil judgment awarded against him.

Callaway claims he was acting in his official capacity as a city councilman. The request came in a document obtained by The Press of Atlantic City.

Three other co-defendants want the same deal.

Callaway is serving a federal prison term in an unrelated bribery case.

No word whether Atlantic City officials are willing to pick up the tab.
