An odd story out of Arizona, where an immigration hawk with some Nazi ties and his girlfriend's family were gunned down. The first prospect was domestic violence, for a gun-happy ex-Marine with his past would be a good candidate to go postal on loved ones (at least, we've seen stories like that before); however, if he has been making life somewhat miserable for drug gangs trying to operate there, having the Zetas or other narcos put a hit out on him would be feasible.
Almost is odd is Washington state liberals wanting to coax Dennis Kucinich out west to run for one of two open seats. He lost to Marcy Kaptur in a dual-incumbant primary earlier this spring, as his western Cleveland district got shifted over into Kaptur's Toledo one; that was one of the undercards of the big Romney-Santorum Ohio primary day. He's got two weeks to move west if he wants to meet the May 18th deadline.
There's no rule that says how long you have to be a resident in order to run. However, I've yet to hear of a candidate who lost one primary, then changed states in the same year.
Would he be able to serve Ohio as a congressman while living in Washington state? Not that I'd lose any sleep if that seat went vacant for a few months as it goes into the dustbin of history.
However, it was unorthodox, and a last-man-standing effect put him in the lead after just about everyone else had a turn at the front and crashed in some way. He wasn't quite the last man standing, for Rick Santorum took advantage of Romney superPAC money savaging Newt to be the last non-Paulista standing before he became the target of unrelenting PAC-flak.
While I was in grad school at Kent State, I worked in the southeastern Cleveland suburb of Macedonia for a few months. I likely went over the route 82 bridge just west of there a few times; five Occupiers got caught plotting to blow it up earlier in the week.
The FBI seemed to be on this quintet like white on rice, like they've rolled up some Muslim wannabe jihadists in the past well before they were dangerous. One only wonders if there are some savvier Occupiers who might actually pull off some terrorism before having someone on the FBI payroll become part of the group.
