Dodds has been convicted of faking a car crash along with a daylong dazed
stumble through the woods to, uh…encourage people to vote for him:
By convicting on all three charges, jurors made clear that
they believe Dodds was not in the woods for 27 hours following the crash as he
claimed, but rather somewhere much warmer soaking his feet in cold water to
fake his injuries. Prosecutors said throughout the trial the entire ordeal was
supposed to be used to whip up support for his nascent congressional campaign,
but the ruse turned went awry.
“Awry” is one way to put it, I suppose.
Thanks to Granite Slate for the heads up.
