Fake Teabagger Writes Fake Check
Poor Scott Ashjian. All he wanted to do was challenge Harry Reid as the “Tea Party of Nevada” candidate. But the teabaggers disowned him — technically, claimed they never owned him in the first place — and now the Clark County district attorney’s office wants him to own up:
A Nevada asphalt contractor who faces a legal challenge to his Tea Party of Nevada candidacy for U.S. Senate was hit Friday with felony theft and bad check charges in Las Vegas that allege he bounced a $5,000 business check last year.
This being Nevada, we should mention that the head of the DA’s bad-check unit is also a Republican running for judge. But since Ashjian also lost his contractor’s license last week after failing to answer a complaint that he bounced a different check, owes the IRS $200,000, and stiffs the trash collector, we’re going to call it a fair cop.
