Um yeah, I’d say he’s disqualified

Why do people like this even run for office? Do they think they won’t get caught?

Newton County resident and candidate for a seat on the Board of Education Horace Don Gresham was convicted of sexual misconduct involving a boy under 14 years of age in 1988, according to DeKalb County records. The conviction calls into question Gresham’s eligibility to seek public office under Georgia elections law.

Gresham, who is seeking the District 2 seat on the school board, received a sentence of 12 years, with one year to serve in prison, on one count of sodomy after he pleaded guilty in a negotiated plea deal that combined four counts involving the same child, the records show. The conviction stems from an indictment handed down by a DeKalb County grand jury, which included two counts of sodomy and two counts of aggravated child molestation that allegedly occurred between January 1982 and Oct. 31, 1985.

    Because some people thought that mandatory sentencing for drug offenses was a good idea. So we have good, honest citizens who smoke a little weed in jail, and guys who smoke a little young pole out on the street….

    What is it about Adult Male Republican politicians (or in this case a wannabee politician) that make them like the little boys so much?

    Enquiring minds want to know!
