More Republican Family Values
Gotta love these Republican Family Values lawmakers. According to a report in the Orlando Sentinal, Florida State Rep. Bob Allen was arrested Wednesday afternoon at a local park after offering to perform a sex act on an undercover officer in exchange for $20, police said.

Titusville police were at Veteran’s Memorial Park on East Broad Street on a burglary detail when they noticed an unshaven man acting suspicious, going in and out of the restroom three times, said Lt. Todd Hutchinson.

An undercover officer decided to go into one of the bathroom stalls, Hutchinson said. Moments later, Allen knocked on the stall door and offered to perform oral sex on the officer for $20, according to the police spokesman.

Score on for Free Speech
The St. Pete Times reports Donnie James White spent three days in jail for desecrating an American flag. Then, Thursday, he became a free man after prosecutors declared the charge unconstitutional.

Tampa police said they were just following Florida law, of course several cases have been thrown out over the past few years also. I guess they just can’t remember that darned ole Constitution thing around here.

Though it has been 18 years since the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated state laws that made flag desecration a crime, Florida never took its statute off the books.
