Blowvember So Far

by Blogenfreude

Before we introduce you to Blowvember's latest Republican poster boy, a brief recap:

Nov. 2 - a strong start to Blowvember with a twofer: a Catholic school principal dressing up in fishnets and fake breasts and offering his wares on the street; and another Florida bathroom sex sting (a la Bob Allen, newly-convicted toilet cruiser);

Nov. 8 - a South Dakota kid toucher was convicted; another bathroom sting, this one in Ohio and featuring a police officer in a red thong; a former youth pastor who thought child sex assault was just a "bad dating decision"; and another Florida Republican in the dock, this one for molestation;

Nov 13 - and now, presenting your latest Republican pervert, this time from the great state of Utah, please welcome E. Ozwald Balfour:

A 3rd District judge this week scuttled Republican leader Ozwald Balfour’s efforts to disqualify the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office from prosecuting him for allegedly groping, or attempting to grope, four women.

Four sex assault cases filed against Balfour in 2005 were still unresolved last fall when he threw his support - and the free services of his two media consulting companies - to Republican district attorney candidate Lohra Miller.

He is charged with three second-degree felony counts of forcible sexual abuse and one count of attempted forcible sexual abuse, a third-degree felony ....
John Amato also points out that Mr. Balfour campaigned for Orrin Hatch and is on the Executive Committee of the Utah Republican Party.

And Blowvember's not even half over.
