There’s nothing like someone having a complete meltdown – caught on videotape – especially when it involves  a politician.

In this must-see video, Alderwoman Mala Brooks of Leland, Mississippi  throws a huge hissy-fit  when confronted at a Board of Alderman meeting Tuesday over $12,000 she and her mother Barbara –the former Mayor of Leland – allegedly took from the city’s coffers last year  without approval from the Board.

The two used the money to go to the Mississippi Coast where they stayed at a casino and resort for a conference. Problem is --- the Board of Alderman had not given approval for the trip, according to Leland’s current Mayor, James Lowe.

Two weeks ago, the city asked  mother and daughter to pay back the nearly $12,000 they wrote in checks.   Alderman Mala Brooks said the checks involved payments for legitimate expenses.

On Tuesday, when the issue was brought up at the Board of Aldermen meeting, Mala Brooks spoke out of turn, Lowe said. The mayor repeatedly asked her to stop talking, but when she wouldn't, he told her that she would removed from the meeting.   She said, “That’s fine,” according to Lowe.

Three officers then tried to remove her.  That’s when it gets good.  At one point, she climbed under the table, crying and screaming, “Y'all are doing me wrong. I haven't done nothing wrong. I'm not going anywhere.”

The officers had to pull her out from under the table and carried her out of the meeting. The incident was recorded by the city.

Mala Brooks went to City Hall the next day and took the tape and made copies and passed them out, Lowe said. She returned the tape two days later, and now we can show it to you for your enjoyment!

Lowe says the matter of the missing money hasnow been turned over to the Mississippi Attorney General's Office.
