Good news, violent thugs. Stomping on a defenseless woman’s head may cost you $600, but you won’t serve any jail time. From WLEX:

A Rand Paul supporter charged with assaulting an activist before the November election has entered an Alford Plea in the case.

Police say Tim Profitt stepped on 23-year-old MoveOn.org activist Lauren Valle while she was on the ground before a debate in Lexington between Paul and Jack Conway.

Profitt said he was trying to protect Paul when Valle approached the candidate with a fake award. Profitt then lost his job as the Bourbon County coordinator for the Paul campaign.

An Alford Plea means Profitt recognizes there’s enough evidence for a conviction, but he’s not addressing the facts alleged. Profitt will pay Valle $600 restitution. Profitt, who is currently out of state, will also serve one year of unsupervised probation.

Today is certainly a victory for the feet of all grown men with bad backs who are viciously attacked by the head of a defenseless woman being held down by another man, especially when it is in defense of a candidate who is 20 yards away.

Let Freedom ring, WMLP’s! Remember, it’s OK to curbstomp a defenseless woman if they were wearing a wig at some point that evening. It’s in the Constitution, look it up.

KY receives $1.9 million in federal VAWA grants

From Gov. Beshear’s office, we learn that Kentucky has just received $1.9 million in commie federal notes from the Violence Against Women Act grants:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 2, 2011) –Gov. Steve Beshear today announced the awarding of nearly $1.9 million in federal grant funds to state and local groups that assist victims of domestic and sexual violence.

“We are pleased to be able to help communities across the Commonwealth address the unique needs of domestic violence and sexual assault victims,” said Gov. Beshear. “Even with vigorous enforcement against perpetrators, victims of domestic violence and sexual assault may have many related legal, economic and social issues that these funds help address by providing shelter, support and other vital services.”

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) grants, administered by the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, provide funding to agencies offering services to adult victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Eligible agencies include law enforcement, prosecution, service programs and courts. Services include therapy, group counseling, court advocacy, legal advocacy and follow up.

Great news, but the Violence Against Women Act expires at the end of this year and will need to be reauthorized. And funded.

Which leads us back to that old question that we never received an answer for: Does Rand Paul support the Violence Against Women Act?

Inquiring minds still want to know.

At last! The trial is set for June 20th.

(also, someone please give Shawntaye an anatomy chart so she can learn what a head is)

I guess Frank Simon and Take Back Kentucky‘s campaign to drop the charges against the Curbstomper and have assault charges filed against the Curbstompee have failed. I’m frightened by the thought that some defenseless woman’s head is free to assault my foot and not receive the punishment it deserves. And I weep for America.

At least the Curbstomper is free to campaign for Phil Moffett for the rest of the primary.

First Lady Jane Beshear’s annual drive to provide needed goods for domestic violence shelters in Kentucky begins tomorrow. You can drop off goods at any Krogers tomorrow from 8-5. Here are the goods they need, and here are more details:

Mrs. Beshear began this annual drive in 2008 to provide domestic violence shelters with needed goods, such as canned foods, toilet paper and soap at Kroger stores across the state. The goods benefit Kentucky Domestic Violence Association (KDVA) shelters.

Shop & Share has raised approximately $205,000 in goods and donations each of the past 2 years.

KDVA serves 27,000 men, women and children annually, both residentially and non-residentially.

KDVA is facing increasing costs for domestic violence services such as heating and cooling shelters; client transportation to court, doctor’s appointments and social services; food and clothing, and other basic necessities for the shelters.

The next Shop & Share will be held at Kroger stores across Kentucky on Saturday, February 5, 2011 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Click here to download lists of the items requested for donation.

Click on a button below or the corresponding county on the map to volunteer. For volunteer opportunities at Kroger stores in Louisville please contact Tamara.Reif AT cwfempower DOT org.

"The shooter wins"

New Senator and WMLP Mike Lee of Utah has said plenty of fun things before, like child labor laws are unconstitutional, voters shouldn’t elect senators, Social Security should be phased out, and non-”Tenthers” are “domestic enemies”.

Now he’d like you to know that if congressmen stopped using violent political rhetoric, “the shooter wins“.

Brilliant.

But both sides do it!

Sarah Palin decided to go on Hannity’s show and defend violent political rhetoric and rifle crosshairs on Martin Luther King Day.

Our president did other things.

Not very surprising, is it?

But Rand also has a message for all of you folks out their decrying violent political rhetoric:

“I’m not surprised that they do it,” Paul said of the attacks on rhetoric. “I do think they should be ashamed of themselves for doing it and [it] really just has no place in this discussion.”

Yeah, shame on YOU.
