From the Tabloids to the Ballot
In my piece about Randall Terry’s Tea Party-driven comeback, I broke the news that Terry’s activists were going to mount congressional campaigns in 2010 for the express purpose of putting anti-abortion rights TV ads on the air inside the beltway. Along those same lines, the persistent Obama conspiracy figure Larry Sinclair — a felon who managed to get 1 million YouTube viewers to watch a video about his off-the-wall sex and drugs allegations about the president — has transitioned into a run for Congress in Florida’s 24th district, a swing seat that elected a Democrat in 2008.
I found out about this because the Globe, a tabloid that reports basically anything Sinclair does, put it on the cover. Sinclair, who’s running as an independent, has one of the most honest slogans of 2010:
I have served my time, now it’s time I serve my Country.
