Flex eventually copped out to a lesser charge of harassment.

MIAMI – (CBS4) – It’s official: Luther Campbell confirmed to CBS4 Wednesday that he plans to run for Miami-Dade County mayor promising transparency, if elected.
In an extensive interview with the Miami New Times, Campbell spells out his platform as he looks to unseat Mayor Carlos Alvarez who is facing a recall election on March 15th.
Campbell, a New Times columnist, high school assistant football coach and former front man for the controversial rap group “2 Live Crew”, answered questions from a New Times reporter. On Tuesday, he abruptly canceled a press conference about his mayoral run.
When asked why he’s running, Campbell told the weekly publication that he’s “mad frustrated… I get in my car, ride around Liberty City, and everything looks the same as when I was in the neighborhood growing up. I see the same crimes in the same areas. Officers and residents are still getting killed in the community I grew up in. I go to a city like Atlanta that has sensible affordable housing, and no one is being murdered. I go to Miami International Airport and see the same construction that has been going on for like a hundred years. All of that frustrates the hell out of me. Why aren’t we getting it right in Miami-Dade? Why is our government only serving one set of people? That’s what is pushing me to run.”
In the question-and-answer forum, Campbell attacked Alvarez saying he “hasn’t created any new jobs, yet we keep these government employees who have been around for decades and aren’t doing anything.”
It seems that the real King Of The South is behind bars too.
