The mayor of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Bob Ryan, is up for a recall on Tuesday following a string of alcohol incidents.

Ryan faced criticism last year and a possible investigation because of a three-day drinking binge. During that binge Ryan allegedly got into a fight and assaulted a woman. There even was a photograph of him after he passed out at a bar.


In 2009, Ryan took heat for a video that surfaced him bragging about his sister-in-law’s sexual skills while he was drunk.

Ryan has talked publicly about his alcohol problems, saying, “I don’t fight alcoholism, I live with it.” Ryan does insist that he does not let his personal problems affect his work as the city’s mayor. When he says this he names a list of accomplishments as proof that his work does not suffer.

“I personally do not feel there is any better candidate out there than me,” Ryan said.

Some residents of the city claim that the actions of the mayor have helped to embarrass the community and that they are ready for a mayoral change.

The end of Ryan’s term does not come until 2013. If one of his challengers are victorious, they will take over during the remaining year. He has seven challengers, one of whom is eighteen years old.
