COHOES - It was another no-show for Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse on Monday.

Morse was arrested on federal charges Thursday, accused of stealing campaign funds.

The City Council has suggested he step down or take leave. However, Morse says he was elected by the people to do a job, hasn't been found guilty of anything and will continue to stay on as mayor.
