BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - A Gulf Coast mayor accused of embezzlement says he'll run for re-election this year. Waveland Mayor Tommy Longo told the Sun Herald he's being unfairly targeted.

Longo goes on trial June 21 in Hancock County Circuit Court. He's accused of embezzling $1,116 in Fuelman purchases for gas for a personal vehicle instead of his government-issued vehicle.
