Medford Township is in turmoil as embarrassed residents clamor for the mayor to resign after he was accused in a sex scandal. Last month, an unidentified male escort e-mailed town officials and a local newspaper to say Mayor Chris Myers had paid him $500 for sex.
The man also provided a link to a website that contained pictures of a man who resembled Myers and who was lying on a bed in his underwear. Since then, the Rentboy.com website, used by male escorts, disappeared.
Myers, a family man, denies the allegations and won't resign. He skipped a town meeting on Monday and missed hearing residents complain about his spotty attendance record. Two days later, David J. Brown, a longtime councilman and Myers' supporter, abruptly resigned. In a letter to the town clerk he said he was "resigning immediately."
If Myers does the same, the all-Republican, five-member council will consist of all newcomers in January. Two other councilman decided a few weeks ago not to run for another term. Before that, another council person was ousted for violating a residency rule during a divorce.
