Unstoppable groping machine Former Democratic legislator Dwayne Dobbins took it on the chin once again today as the Arkansas Supreme Court told him to “buzz off” in his quest to get listed on the ballot, the AP reports. With eight days to go until Election Day and early voting in full swing, Dobbins is running out of plays and this is just starting to get kind of sad.
OK, one more time for those just joining the Dobbins Saga (*long Kinkade sigh*): Dobbins resigned from his House seat in 2005 as part of a plea bargain with prosecutors to avoid felony charges for groping a 17-year-old girl and his wife was elected in his place and then when he filed to run again this year in a surprise move the Democrats declined to certify him for the ballot so he’s been fighting to get back on the ballot but even if he were to win it would not matter because members of the Arkansas House overwhelmingly passed a rule in August that would bar him from being seated so I’m not really sure where he’s going with all this. Whew.
And I say it’s a crime, what’s being done to Dwayne Dobbins. The man just wants to legislate! Won’t you let him legislate? Damn you! Damn you all to hell!
