God bless their little hearts. Pathetic.

This is why I never post here anymore. What good does it do to have rules when the search box

doesn't work? I searched for that thread before I posted it. Just makes me look like an idiot. I'm done. Vent over. Back into hiding, until the next whack-a-mole. GRRRRR.

Arpaio crony, Fox News darling, Senate candidate and militia leader arrested for child molestation

Source: Daily Kos

Gee, who could've predicted it? His former wives said he was violent and beat their kids. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported that he had a very dark side and "troubled past." His young daughter said he tried to molest her. And yesterday it caught up with one of Arizona's most well-known border hawks:

A one-time border activist was arrested Wednesday by Phoenix police and accused of sexual conduct involving three girls younger than 10 years old, police said.
Christopher Allen Simcox, 52, who founded the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps in 2005, was booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of child molestation, attempted child molestation and sexual exploitation of a minor. Arizona Republic

A former supporter of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and other anti-immigration buttfaces, like recalled Sen. Russell Pearce, Simcox today sits in Arpaio's jail. It's a long fall from just a few years ago, when the handsome and articulate nativist regularly appeared on Fox News, praising SB 1070 and blasting any attempts at immigration reform.

Instead of naming it PRISM or however it's spelled, the should have named it Edgar. nt

Russ Feingold For Senate In 2016?

Former Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold last week left the door open to challenging the Republican who defeated him, teasing Democrats that he may run in 2016.

Feingold spoke to party faithful on Friday at the state Democratic convention in Oconomowoc, Wis.

"I don't come to you tonight as a candidate, at least not in 2013 or 2014, or 2015," said Feingold in a comment met by cheers from the audience.

Feingold lost his seat in 2010, when Republicans swept the midterm elections. He was beaten by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who will be up for reelection in 2016. Feingold's comments at the convention, however, ruled out a run against Gov. Scott Walker (R) in 2014. Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin wrote on Monday that Feingold would be a good choice for Democrats for president in 2016.

So I take it National Journal is a right-wing publication?

*note: I have never laid eyes on it before today, if that tells you how well-read I apparently am not.
