By all that is holy and good, it is really important that Sarah Palin be kept out of the Gret Stet of Louisiana.
What? Oh, crap.
WELL, IN THAT CASE, be warned that this, as reported in the Monroe News-Star is the kind of baseline whackjobbery she'll have to work with:
A 75-year-old man was arrested today for threatening to bring his shotgun to the Registrar of Voters office in downtown Monroe.ACCORDING TO The Smoking Gun, Williams did nothing to exonerate himself when the long arm of the law reached out to his address:
According to the report, Wade Marshall Williams of Monroe used profanity and racial slurs and said he needed to vote in the upcoming presidential election to “keep the n***** out of office.”
Williams, of 266 Lake Passman, then reportedly said he wanted his card before he came to the building with his “shotgun and emptied it.”
Ouachita Sheriff deputies received complaints that Williams had threatened the office over the telephone after he was informed he would receive his voter registration card in two weeks, but could still vote by showing picture identification.
Williams reportedly told the office he recently moved back to the area but grew up in Ouachita Parish and attended Ouachita Parish High School.
Christa Medaries with the registrar’s office said Williams may have been drinking. He was booked on a charge of terrorizing.
En route to the jail, he "continued his 'tirade' about n****** and also stated that he had a shotgun, but had it hidden at his residence," reported Lt. Michael Judd.AMERICA'S ORIGINAL SIN: It's the gift that keeps on giving.
