With the upper- and mid-ranks of the Democratic Party furiously engaged in an internecine conflict to see who can be the most stupid the most often, the Left's bottom-feeders are being starved of the attention that they so richly deserve.
So, leaving aside the big beasts for a moment, let's turn our focus towards some of the lesser-known, but equally hopeless, Leftist minions:
First up is Hope Whitehead, who recently clinched the nomination to fill a vacancy in the Missouri House of Representatives .
And she has proven that she has the right stuff to be an excellent Democrat because her corruption is already established before even entering office.
Whiteheads inappropriateness for public office of any kind is revealed by the fact that she owed $1,155 in personal property taxes and related fees (and only paid it back once her candidacy was all but in place as, under state law, candidates with overdue tax bills are ineligible for the ballot).

He was recently convicted of bribery and embezzlement, but that’s not even my favorite story about him. I tend to like this one best:
Lawsuit claims Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford walked out of bingo operation with a rigged jackpot
Why, thank you (if you mean my site, as opposed to FR, that is).
Bamahead - he’s definitely going to make an appearance on my site now, thanks for the tip.
Your site. I would have preferred Tack-a-Rat, but it is still sweet.
Many democrats come to Washington as penniless grifters, and leave as multimillionaires.
I would have preferred TRACK-A-RAT.
Appreciate it, FormerACLUmember.
There’s lots of material on Langford my friend. He’s been scamming Birmingham area voters for years with failed amusement park bond deals (twice) and bribery on a grand scale for decades.
The AL.com site has amassed quite a file on him:
And yes, it’s sad. But there are people ignorant enough to keep voting him back in, every time. It’s a great case study in such...
