Texas AG Is Pimpin' Himself


News has come out that 14 sex offenders have been arrested for "illegally" using MySpace.com. But the Texas AG's office is using it as a campaign commercial by (1) sending out a press release, (2) having the arrests made by his investigators and then taking full credit as the headline - above - from his state web site shows, and shockingly (3) putting up the video of the arrest of all 14 people on the web site.

His Your taxpayer funded web site showing this shameless self promotion at your expense is here.

It's encouraging to finally see a politician putting our tax dollars to good use.

Yeah BG, I hate it when the gubment uses my hard earned tax dollars to bust sex-offenders for trolling for more victims. Just think, they could have used that tax money to update our aging Texas State Park road signs!

I can't imagine how much of my tax dollars are wasted, so I guess I can handle a sex offender getting arrested and posted on a web site.

It's the advantage of the incumbents to promote themselves. Incumbency certainly has its perks - note how our local JP got off while his hunting buddies all got tickets!

In Fort Worth, cops patrol neighborhoods in the winter and issue tickets to homeowners that start their cars to warm them up, but go back inside for a few minutes to grab their coats, their coffee or whatever. It's about $100. The homeowner is fined for "tempting" the criminal element and encouraging auto thefts. I am not making this up. In this case, Fort Worth is trying to get tough on crime by coming down hard on potential victims. Ridiculous. But, maybe we ought to start coming down hard on parents who let their underage kids talk about their sex lives, their virginity status, their favorite positions, post racy pictures, describe how much they like being "hos", and give themselves screen names like "yourlilsexslave". I have a hard time wondering why an underage kid can do all that with total intent and awareness of what they are doing, yet when some perv does make contact with them, all of sudden society considers them just innocent little children.
