Albany Times Union: Wanted for rape, ex-Congressional candidate [(R)] dead in Cohoes

COHOES - A one-time Congressional candidate and ex-cop wanted for allegedly raping women in York, Pa., and Baltimore was found dead inside a Mohawk Street apartment this morning, a law enforcement official said this afternoon.
. . . .

(Michael L.) Johnson, who left the York Police Department in 1998 and once ran for Congress, was wanted for one alleged rape in Baltimore and two others in York, according to America's Most Wanted. The show recently profiled Johnson on its Web site.

Johnson was accused for pretending to be a police officer and raping drug-addicted prostitutes.

Johnson, the president of the Penn Township Board of Commissioners, was free on $100,000 bail when he disappeared earlier this month, according to the marshals.

Johnson, a Republican, ran for Congress in 2002, coming in fourth in a four-person field.

4. Pathetic, sick, cowardly, Republican, commits suicide.
Well, they closed on his location, heard a shot, found no one else, and he was shot, dead. Looks like suicide before the official report.

Certainly sounds like a Republican.

7. Just like a Republican to use a legal technicality to evade justice.
We need to change the law so they can't use being dead to escape prosecution.
