Do you know how they discovered he brought back an illegal weapon from Iraq?
He got caught with it on a University Campus.
Adam Kokesh is a Charles Whitman in waiting.
"anti-war", my arse! These people aren't "anti-war". They're pro-communist, anti-Capitalist, anti-US military! They love war and violence when it involves a communist overthrow or revolt. Their heroes are monsters like Mao, Che, Castro and Stalin!
Jonn, TSO, and the rest of the gang at This Ain’t Hell have done yeoman’s work in pointing out the sheer volume of evidence that this guy shouldn’t even be elected dogcather in Bloomfield, let alone be the GOP nominee for the 3rd CD seat. He can TRY to pull the wool over the eyes of the powers that be in the NM GOP, but as a former Farmington resident, I can tell you from conversations I’ve had with folks there that they’re not buying it.
The author has a poor grasp of Northern New Mexico politics. It’s a perennial Dim stronghold, and Lujan is the son of the NM Speaker of the House, so the patronage is in place.
Kokesh hasn’t made much of a blip on the local political radar except as being one of those “characters” NM produces... and is pretty much being ignored except in small liberal bastions (like the UNM area, which isn’t in the 3rd district)
I’m surprised by the amount of print he’s been getting outside NM. His chances of having much of an effect on the race are about zero IMO.

Great post Tim.
I was just posting on another thread about this Marxist, Adam Kokesh and one of his major supporters, Ron Paul.
Some people need to get a clue.
