A billboard in Greensboro is taking a jab at former Charlotte mayor Patrick Cannon's arrest on corruption charges

The billboard features a photo of Cannon in front of the city skyline. It is altered with a pile of money in front of him and rotating text that reads, "All this can be yours for the right price" and "Charlotte mayor says show me the money."

The billboard is owned by Kotis Properties, WCNC reports. Owner Marty Kotis tells the station his company frequently uses current events to draw attention to its billboards.
