New Hampshire Democrat Keith Halloran Wishes Sarah Palin Dead on Facebook
Posted by iusbvision on September 10, 2010
I don’t know how I missed this story earlier. It is amazing how Sarah Palin, just by being as effective as she is and by being herself brings out the haters like no one else (ok well maybe Ann Coulter is in the running as well).
A New Hampshire state representative has resigned his position and announced he will not run for re-election after writing that a dead Sarah Palin is “more dangerous than a live one.”
State Rep. Timothy Horrigan stepped down Thursday after posting a Facebook page in which he described the “myth” of the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate.
His resignation comes after another New Hampshire Democratic candidate apologized the same day for his Facebook post in which he wished Sarah Palin and the father of her grandchild, Levi Johnston, had been on the plane that crashed Tuesday, killing former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.
“Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board,” Keith Halloran originally wrote in reference to Palin and Johnston, her daughter Bristol’s ex-boyfriend.
Politico.com has more on Halloran’s nuttery:
A Wikipedian e-mails to note that Timothy Horrigan, who resigned today from the New Hampshire House of Representatives over a joke about Sarah Palin’s death, took an interest in another leading Republican on the online encyclopedia.
Horrigan is active on the site, my correspondent e-mails, and “most of his edits are quite innocuous.”
He has a special interest, however, in the complicated personal life of Newt Gingrich and has repeatedly edited it.
The point he’s added: “Gingrich has showed his strong support for the institution of traditional marriage by marrying three times.”
