A St. Louis Alderman is demanding that City Counselor Patti Hageman offer an apology to an Alderman who was acquitted this week of public urination. Alderman Irene Smith had been accused of urinating during a Board of Aldermen meeting in July of last year. In the midst of a filibuster, Smith needed to relieve herself but was told she would lose control of the floor if she went to the restroom. Supporters then surrounded Smith with sheets and other fabrics to allow her to urinate into a wastebasket. Charges were filed at the time and Smith was acquitted this week. Following the verdict, city lawyer Hageman said that Smith had “shamed herself and embarrassed the city.” Now, Alderman Sharon Tyus wants an apology for that remark.
