Lecherous Pervert Blake Farenthold seems to think he's allowed to stay in Congress

"It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness,
For a throne is established by righteousness."
Proverbs 16:12

When all else fails, change the subject:

  • Farenthold vows to "pay back" the federal government, as if that's any sort of justification of his own behavior.
  • Claims to have been cleared of wrongdoing by the congressional "ethics" investigators, as if the fact that this is the one time Congress has actually paid out this sort of settlement doesn't already tell you everything you need to know.
This has to be the most convincing performance we've seen since Harvey Weinstein pledged to go after the NRA...or perhaps since O.J's vow to find the real killer.

Greene said another Farenthold aide told her the lawmaker said he had “sexual fantasies” and “wet dreams” about Greene. She also claimed that Farenthold “regularly drank to excess” and told her in February 2014 that he was “estranged from his wife and had not had sex with her in years.”
We suppose there might be some theoretical defense that Congressman Farenthold could mount that might be compelling.  In the event such a defense exists, we suggest Congressman Farenthold make it quickly.  But the odds of such a defense emerging seem...low.

One personal note: Congressman Farenthold's district extends into Bastrop and Caldwell counties.  The district's western edge is less than 15 miles from where we're typing this blog post.  If Congressman Farenthold wants to make this race a priority, he's welcome to do so.

Bottom Line: Unless Farenthold comes up with a very compelling defense very quickly, he needs to go.  This week.  We won't have time to loop back to this until Wednesday, but 48 hours should be more than enough time.
