Wingnut of the Day: Frank Balles
It is scary to think that New Jersey Republican Frank Balles is the Sheriff of Atlantic County. At this forum, it certainly sounds like Balles is urging voters to shoot his Democratic opponent State Sen. Jim Whelan.
"When someone's been elected for 30 years and he comes knocking on your door and tells you, 'Listen, this is what I want to do to help you,' quickly close your door, go inside," Balles said. A member of the audience quickly interjected, "And get your gun!" Balles quickly responded, "And get your gun, exactly!"Balles' "gun" remarks start at the 4 minute mark of the video. Hat tip to Freak Out Nation.
