I don't think anyone is trying to point fingers at this point. Speaking of God "what is done in the dark, shall come to the light". That said, the council did the right thing and could have (should have) done a lot more, considering the Mayor himself admitted to the forgery. Who are we to judge? I agree with you there because we all are sinners but right is right and wrong is wrong. If those who do wrong mistakenly often get punished and the "mighty mayor" is no different.
