California: Moreno Valley School Board member facing recall, charges of attempted murder and rape, is running for city council

Moreno Valley school board member Mike Rios, facing a recall attempt along with criminal charges of attempted murder, rape, pimping and pandering, has decided to run for the City Council. Petitioners need 10,000 signatures to get this on the ballot.

In February, Rios was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after he fired at a car passing by his home.  He was released on bail and returned to the board.  His colleagues and community members urged him to resign. 
Two months later, he was arrested on suspicion of raping two women, pimping and using his position as a school board member to recruit prostitutes, some of whom were minors.
If convicted, he could face a life sentence.  He was released on $250,000 bail.
