(Newser) – Police are investigating a South African mayor over allegations that he sent pornographic images to his deputy—including one of his penis covered in cream (whipped, we assume) and topped with a strawberry, the Independent reports. Cederberg municipality mayor Jonas White also allegedly offered to take deputy Lorna Scheepers on a private trip for two to the beach-filled city of Durban on the taxpayers' dime.

White's party has confirmed that it is also investigating the allegations, but a spokesperson for White says the mayor "does not recall sending inappropriate messages to any of the citizens in the municipal area in his official capacity."

This man is innocent. Did you not read his statement? "He did not send anything in his official capacity"... What he is saying, is: I did it on my own anything goes.... 1942
