Former ‘Family Values’ GOP Candidate Arrested For Wife Beating

Former ‘Family Values’ GOP Candidate Arrested For Wife Beating

Oh, Brad Staats, not only were you compensating for something by flashing your gun during the campaign, now that you’ve soundly lost by a 2 to 1 margin for the 5th District of Tennessee against incumbent Jim Cooper, you return to your normal life by slapping your wife and throwing her on the bed.

On Sunday morning, police were called to the Staats household by his wife, Bethany. When they arrived, they found her sporting fresh bruises. When they asked Brad about the injuries, first he dismissed them, then claimed it was that she had fallen on to the bed. He was then taken into custody, resulting in yet another mugshot to add to the Republican gallery as he was booked at 3am:

It is a small man who feels powerful only while holding a gun. It is also a small man who feels the need to beat their wife. These are the sign of a bully, simple as that. Brad Staats is showing himself as little more than a common thug, and an ill-educated one at that.

For those who recall, he posted a picture of his gun on his Facebook page saying “Welcome to Tennessee Mr. Obama” in response to a non-existent “UN Small Arms Treaty” popular among conspiracy theorists on the right.

2. Shocked. Shocked I tell you.



Right wingers hate women. If they didn't, they'd be left wingers.
