TheWeek.com has a story that has a great title that has such fascinating details that it has me posting about it. That's a lot of "that has's" and for good reason. Their title: "Romney-endorsed candidate Wehby is having a bizarre month."
Well, that sure got my attention. Especially the Romney-endorsed part.
The Wehby with the bizarre month is Oregon U.S. Senate GOP candidate Dr. Monica Wehby.
That also got my attention. Especially the GOP part.
She's also the leading Republican challenger to Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley.
Here are a few reasons why Wehby's week has been so "bizarre," or as I like to call it, troubling-slash-typically Republican:
- Wehby was accused by her ex-boyfriend last year of “stalking” him, entering his home without his permission and “harassing” his employees, according to a Portland, Oregon police report.
- She's involved in a medical child-abuse case.
- Democrats are filing a complaint over a super PAC running ads attacking her primary opponent, because she's (allegedly) romantically linked to a major funder of the group.
As Rick Perry would say, "Oops."
Willard Romney sure knows how to pick 'em. He's right up there in the Impeccable Taste and Flawless Judgment categories with Sarah Palin.
