Just when I think that West Virginia politics is about as surreal as it gets, something pops up from somewhere else that moves the goal posts. Consider the reelection campaign of Oklahoma County (Oklahoma) Commissioner Brent Rinehart. He's got some problems:
He's been accused of abusing his office for personal gain, and will go on trial in the fall on felony campaign finance charges.Don't worry - he's not to blame:
But apparently, this is all a conspiracy of homosexuals, liberal do gooders, and good ol' boys to force Rinehart out of office.But wait, that's not all. To explain his side of things, Rinehart has produced (with the help of an artistic friend) a comic book that, well, just has to be seen to be believed. The Reason article has a few choice pages, but you can see the whole thing here.
