Give me a home where the predators prey...

Got to love those champions of religiosity and the American Way. From men’s rooms to gay meth-head hookers to chasing after people saying “Suck it, baby, suck it,” they’re right out there. It looks like right-wing politics is almost as good a place to be a predator as being a youth group counselor.
And like predators always, they know where to hang out: where the prey is.

Almond Resigns From North Carolina House One Day After Allegations Surface

RALEIGH, N.C. — Rep. David Almond resigned Thursday from the state Legislature due to an unspecified personnel complaint filed with House leadership, a day after the chamber's GOP caucus said it was looking into allegations of "serious, improper behavior."

In a one-sentence letter to House Speaker Joe Hackney, the two-term Republican lawmaker from Stanly County immediately resigned his seat representing the 67th House District.

"A complaint has been filed against me with the Speaker. I intend to defend myself against these charges in whatever forum may be appropriate," Almond said in a written statement released by House GOP leaders.
Almond, 59, took his House seat in the 2005 session and was re-elected last fall, representing Stanly County and parts of Montgomery and Union counties. He is a vice chairman of the House committee on children, youth and families.

Republicans in the district will name a replacement for Almond to serve out the remainder of his two-year term.
