Big Surprise: "Family Values" Conservative is an Abusive Bigamist

Is there some unwritten rule that politicians who want to impose their version of "family values" on everybody else have to have a Boot Hill of their own in the closet? I am becoming more and more convinced that America's libidophobes and would-be Big Brothers of the Boudoir are all nursing very deep-seated psychological problems that they are projecting on to everybody else. Case in point - Jim Galley:
Republican Jim Galley, who is running for Congress as a “pro-traditional family” candidate, was married to two women at the same time, defaulted on his child support payments and has been accused of abuse by one of his ex-wives.

Galley married his second wife, Beth, in 1982 when, unbeknownst to her, he was still married to his first wife, Terry. Beth and Galley divorced in 1990 after she sought a restraining order alleging abuse.
The child support was owed to his first wife.

In February 1988, while Galley, Beth and her two teenage children were living in Lemon Grove, court records show that she obtained a temporary restraining order against Galley. She alleged in court records that she filed for the order after he repeatedly punched and kicked her, slapped her son twice and threatened to kill a neighbor.

“He used to only hit me and now he is hitting my children. I'm very scared of what my husband is capable of,” Beth wrote.

Hyprocisy and scummy behavior aside, doesn't Jim just look like that creepy uncle that everybody wants to keep the kids away from? From now on, I want intensive psychological screening of any candidate who wants to use the coercive power of the state to control my personal life. My guess is that nary a one of them is fit for office.

The Pirate for Congress! Mr. Swashbuckle Goes to Washington!

You're just days removed from Pirate Training Academy and you are already drawn like a moth to the flame to the political arena!

Yes, the abusive bigamist is BAD....but perhaps the Pirate is GOOD, eh? Maybe the Pirate could lay some old fashioned swashbuckle-action on a body of elected officials and convince them of his superior platform of safe streets, good schools and community values...

Pirate of Selby Avenue for City Council! ...for County Commissioner! ...for School Board!

It's only a matter of time, my eye-patch-wearing, sword-wielding neighbor!
