The stickers picturing Frank Russo let motorists know that pumps in Cuyahoga County, Ohio's largest county, were inspected by the auditor's weights and measures department.

Russo resigned Thursday, the day he was charged in a bill of information on 21 counts of taking more than $1 million in bribes in exchange for steering county contracts and hiring political pals.

His attorney Roger Synenberg has declined comment.

Russo's name and photos have been removed from a county website, but the auditor's office in Cleveland says pulling off all the stickers would be too expensive.

A spokesman says interim auditor David Reines, who takes over Russo's job today, may have an idea for dealing with them.
