I know he's had his day in court but this one smells a bit.
I guess you haven't heard about what happened to Boob Barf after he lost his Congressional seat. He went off the deep end, started associating all sorts of liberal causes (even going to an Al Gore event to "raise awareness" of global warming) and did everything he could to trash conservative Republicans and overturn all the good thing he support in Congress like the Defense of Marriage act.
Today's Bob Barr has virtually NOTHING in common with the common sense conservative Bob Barr that served in Congress (I guess they both strongly support gun rights, that's about it). Bob Barr today IS sympathetic to cop-killers (not to mention terrorists), and is a paid ACLU consultant.
“I understand that both former Rep Bob Barr and former FBI Director William Sessions have serious doubts about this one. I trust both men to be level headed and in no way sympathetic to cop-killers”
“Edgar Smith (born 1934) is an American convicted murderer, who was once on Death Row for the 1957 murder of fifteen-year-old honor student and cheer leader Victoria Ann Zielinski. Vigorously contesting his conviction through the courts and in the media, Smith became a celebrity, and his case was argued in public most notably by William F. Buckley, Jr. He eventually succeeded in winning a retrial and negotiating a reduced sentence. Smith was released only to be incarcerated for a second time for the kidnapping and attempted murder of Lefteriya Ozbun in 1976.”
Need I say more.
