Rayford Jackson was in the middle of one of the biggest public corruption scandals in Detroit history. He was sentenced to five years in federal prison for bribing city councilwoman Monica Conyers.

Now, he's back -- and apparently hanging out with another city councilwoman.

When councilwoman Mary Sheffield posted a photo of them together on her Facebook page, Fox 2's M.L. Elrick couldn't help but wonder why she'd want a picture with Jackson and then post it on social media.

So, he attempted ask her about it, but instead of Sheffield giving Elrick an appointment, she tried to give him the slip.
