Isn't this the same guy who is a cross-dresser?

I'm sure that his friend, Jocelyn, will visit him in prison.

He must be preparing for another political campaign.

And yes, he is the cross-dresser.

Hmmmm.... I thought that politicians became crooks AFTER they were elected into office. This guy apparently got it backwards! I still can't believe he was ever allows on ballots, much less that people actually voted for him!

What do you expect he's a typical Democrat that says it all. He's a liar,thief, and a crook. Hmmmm Sounds just like Bart Peterson, and his cronies.

Now that he is convicted and ready to serve time, he should switch parties to being republican. There are so many already in prison that there should be a prison set aside for republican politicians......and I wouldn't be surprised to see if we add one or two more local ones.

So this guy has forgery convictions from 1989 and 2006 with a third felony awaiting him in Greenfield? How does it feel to risk serving life over a few thousand dollars worth of bad checks? For all you aspiring crooks within sight of this post crime doesn't pay nearly as well as working 9-5 :)

He might as well. His former campaign manager, the brilliant JOCELYN TANDY TORKWASE ADANDE has already converted to being a Republican.

What constitutes forgery? Falsifying a document by placing someone's elses name on it? You know it is. I thought that was against the law.

What a pathetic fellow. It was painful to watch him back when he was "running" for office. He needs help, and I hope he finds it.

As entertaining as this guy has been
over the years, I have to say I feel a little sorry for him. Doesn't it seem that this guy is missing a few brain cells? I really think he probably belongs in a mental health facility
and probably supervision in a group home somewhere. Sending this guy to prison is just going to get him abused or raped and he'll come out of there in a couple of years and either kill someone due to the anger or he'll have
and pass along HIV that he'll contract in prison. Of course I know the "christians" and the republicans out there love this - they really get off when someone weak suffers!!

Sad part is that he still would be a better congressman than Dan Burton...

Haahhaah this is hilarious. Man this guy should be in office with the stunts he has pulled. He definately had political blood in him.

Dear give, at least our criminals gain exposure and come back trying something different, you republicans just keep doing the same thing, thumbing your noses, sometimes at your own party. Let's see, Rush, North, Regan, Bush (dubya that is), Nixon, etc, etc, etc.......
