FBI releases undercover video of former Charlotte Mayor

- The FBI released video Wednesday of former Mayor Patrick Cannon accepting bribes in his office at the government center, according to the FBI.

Cannon pleaded guilty to attempted voter fraud charges in Mecklenburg County court Wednesday, March 16, after he cast his ballot in 2014, despite being a convicted felon.

He's currently serving a 44 month prison sentence in a West Virginia Federal Prison and will serve one day concurrent with his federal sentence, according to the judge.

Cannon voted in November 2014 after being convicted of a federal crime, but he reported to prison to serve his federal sentence.

He admitted to taking bribes from undercover agents for thousands of dollars, and was convicted of corruption sending him to prison for 44 months.
