Former Compton Mayor Omar Bradley wants his old job back even though he's facing retrial in a corruption case.
He's among a dozen candidates are trying to unseat current Mayor Eric Perrodin, including former child star Rodney Allen Rippy.
Bradley was convicted in 2004 of misusing public funds. Prosecutors say he used a city-issued credit card for personal expenses, including shoes, cigars and a hotel stay.
An appeal court tossed the conviction last August but prosecutors plan to retry him.
