1. Alleged illegal sexual misconduct with a minor under the age of 18;
2. Alleged ethical misconduct during his mayoral campaign of 2008 by making false statements;
3. Alleged ethical misconduct by encouraging others to lie about his own misconduct;
4. Alleged ethical misconduct by awarding city jobs to members of the media that were reporting, or were professing to report, this issue.
