She also was charged with a felony for fleeing a police officer during a DUI arrest in 2009, but pled that down to a gross misdemeanor, according to The Guardian.

I saw this story a few days ago, but I can only process so much. Today we find the defendants lawyer is claiming his client was only following what he believed were orders from the president.

Before long, they'll be teaching a class in law school titled "The president made me do it."

Attorney for Montana man who threw teen in national anthem attack says Trump rhetoric to blame
I don't know where to clip so here goes. But you should read the whole thing. It's short.
The attorney for a Montana man accused of throwing a 13-year-old boy to the ground at a rodeo because the teenager didn't remove his hat during the national anthem said Wednesday his client believes he was acting on an order from President Donald Trump.

The president's "rhetoric" contributed to Curt Brockway's disposition when he grabbed the boy by the throat and slammed him to the ground, fracturing his skull, at the Mineral County fairgrounds Saturday, attorney Lance Jasper told The Missoulian .

I saw the story and as well as the defense ('the President ordered me to do it'). The guy has problems, obviously. I see he was convicted of pulling a gun on a family in 2010 (road rage), but received a 10 year suspended sentence.

The injury to the 13 year old was severe enough to necessitate Life Flight to the hospital. Hopefully the court does not buy this excuse of mentally ill man following orders from deranged President and mitigates the sentencing as occurred in 2010. And I assume he has no rights to a gun because of being a convicted felon in 2010 (yet, Montana, so I have no idea), but if so, 'red flag' this dude.
To which Trump replied, Fuck the law. I don't give a fuck about the law. I want my fucking money.

Brockway, who is charged with felony assault on a minor, is a registered violent offender after being convicted of a 2010 charge of assault with a weapon.

I was wondering how the 13 yo was doing who was attacked, so I went looking. His name is Wally Crosby. He was released from the hospital just today . . . :
Crosby suffered a concussion and a fractured skull, we reached out to the family today and while they didn’t want to go on camera a family friend tells us Wally is scared at this time, and he is having a hard time mentally. They tell us his concussion is very serious, he is in a lot of pain, and very nauseous.

Shea was one of the lawmakers who "innocently" went to Burns to talk to local government leaders about the Bundy agenda during the takeover of Malheur. He's a turd and I would love to see him forced to resign. He should have been gone long ago.

West Virginia state senator charged with prostitution

HARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia state Sen. Mike Maroney has been charged with soliciting a prostitute.

The Republican lawmaker turned himself in and was arraigned Wednesday morning, a Marshall County court clerk said. He has pleaded not guilty and paid a $4,500 bond.

Maroney exchanged text messages to discuss prices and set up meetings with a woman who has acknowledged being a prostitute, according to a criminal complaint. He also sent her a picture of himself smiling along with a message reading "now can I stop by" after she said she wouldn't meet without a photo of him.

Police have been investigating the woman, Cortnie Clark, and say two people have already pleaded guilty to soliciting her for sex. She has been criminally charged and has told police she became a prostitute so she could buy heroin, according to the complaint. Her attorney didn't immediately return a message left at his office.

Authorities found used condoms, uncapped hypodermic needles and "an unimaginable amount" of human feces and urine throughout Clark's house. Before one of their meetings, she told Maroney her house was messy and he replied he didn't care about a mess, the complaint said.

AG Shapiro Charges PA State Senator for Possession of Child Pornography
September 17, 2019 | Topic: Criminal
HARRISBURG- Attorney General Josh Shapiro tonight announced charges against Pennsylvania State Senator Michael Folmer for possession of child pornography. The investigation began as a result of a CyberTip reporting that an electronic service provider, Tumblr, discovered that a user had uploaded an image of child pornography using their application. The investigation led to the home of Michael Folmer in Lebanon, PA. The Office of Attorney General ‘s Child Predator Section, Lebanon City Police Department, and U.S. Department of Homeland Security executed a search warrant on Tuesday and found images of child pornography on the defendant’s phone. The defendant was charged Tuesday evening with Sexual Abuse of Children, Possession of Child Pornography, and Criminal Use of a Communication Facility.

“This defendant serves as a state Senator and was entrusted to honor and represent his community in the Pennsylvania Capitol,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro. “Tonight, our Office arrested Mr. Folmer for possession of child pornography and charged him with Sexual Abuse of Children, Possession of Child Pornography, and Criminal Use of a Communication Facility. I will continue to say it—no one is above the law, no matter what position of power they hold. I will continue to work to protect children and hold those who abuse them accountable.”

Are any of the Democratic Presidential candidates talking about how they will appoint an AG with ethics who will run a department that actually seeks Justice? How about cleaning up the disaster at the FEC? I ask because it's rare these days to see much about any of the Democrats, what with all of the crime and treachery involving the current administration? Seems to me this would be an important theme instead of the repetitive stump speeches.
I love the poorly educated!!!

Driver with Trump bumper sticker waved gun at driver with Warren bumper sticker
A 27-year-old West Fargo, N.D., man is in jail after threatening a woman with a handgun because he took issue with her political bumper sticker, according to the Moorhead Police Department.

A woman told police she was driving southbound in the 1000 block of Eighth Street near Concordia College when a man pulled up next to her and yelled at her saying he disliked her bumper sticker supporting Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Police said that the man, identified later as Joseph Schumacher, then pointed to his own bumper sticker for Republican President Donald Trump and talked about his different political views before he drove past the woman’s vehicle and held up a handgun.

Officers were able to locate the suspect inside a nearby business and found a loaded handgun in his vehicle’s center console, according to police. Police said the passenger of the vehicle confirmed what reportedly happened.

Schumacher was booked into the Clay County jail and is facing charges of felony terroristic threats and having a loaded handgun inside a vehicle without a permit, a misdemeanor.
