90.3 WBHM Birmingham--Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford is under a cloud of suspicion lately. Last week, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil complaint against him. The S-E-C alleges that Langford accepted money from an investment banker who then got millions of dollars in contracts from the Jefferson County Commission, while Langford was a commissioner. Speculation abounds about the possibility of criminal charges. Mayor Langford sat down the WBHM's Tanya Ott to talk about the allegations and his response.
