Frank Scurlock won’t bow out of the mayor’s race, despite an embarrassing claim last week about an alleged lewd-conduct incident during an Uber ride earlier this year in California, according to a WWL-TV report.

A Santa Monica, California, Police Department spokesman said Scurlock was allegedly caught masturbating by a driver taking him to a hotel in West Hollywood on Feb. 10.

On Tuesday, Scurlock told WWL his campaign is “still on” and that he looks forward to his day in court.
