Sad News.

Kate’s dad passed away Wednesday. Katespot is a regular read of many Garden Staters. You might want to stop by to share a kind word or two.

OK, so I made a little mistake.

“Thanks” to Evilwhiteguy who laid in wait to take this picture and also to Rob, who was also enough of a rat bastard to post it.

I’ll see both of you shithooks next year.

Sex Offender Congressional Candidate.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 5:12 pm

The State Attorney General’s Office ruled today that Daryl Brooks, a convicted sex offender, who is currently on probation after having served four years in prison for a sex offense, is eligible to run for a seat in New Jersey’s twelfth congressional district. This is so, even though under New Jersey law, as a probationer, Mr. Brooks cannot vote in New Jersey, and because he is not a registered voter, he would not be permitted to run for a state office.

By contrast, the U.S. Constitution provides that in order to run for congress, one must be 25 years old, a U.S. citizen for at least seven years and must live in the state from which he or she is elected. According to the State Attorney General’s Office, Mr. Brooks satisfies those criteria and, therefore, he can run for congress.

Mr. Brooks is running as the Green Party candidate.

Until today, I had thought that the Green Party nominated only environmentalists for public office. Then again, I suppose that being a tree-hugger and a kiddy flasher (or a congressman, for that matter) are not mutually exclusive.
