Will having an alleged pedophile and suspected terrorist endorsing the Republican Presidential Candidate harm his chances for election?
Republicans must be asking themselves how long it will take before their candidate renounces the endorsement of Ted Nugent, who is currently under investigation for public threats directed at President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other elected members of the government.
How could an association with gun waving, threat spouting Nugent become even more radioactive?One of the problems of having been a public ranting wild eyed armed extremist is that there is an easily accessible record of both those words and your prior history.
I remember Nugent from the 1970s when he was one of the creepiest of often creepy semi-talented heavy metal rockers.
He had a reputation as a child-fucker even among the groupies and as a creep. He never hid his misogyny and indeed reveled in it. He was alleged to be a full blown racist even then.
Like many marginal musicians he was like yesterday's papers until his reputation for gun waving and ever more outlandish attention seeking crap brought him back into the public eye.
Since Nugent announced his endorsement of Romney negative material that has long been a matter of public record has just poured forth.
His commission of potential criminal deception in order to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War by not bathing and wearing clothes he had pissed and shit in should be so embarrassing as to cause Republicans to disown him.
One has to wonder what they are thinking. Do they wish to be considered serious people or they simply spiraling down to fringe party status?
One would think the only people who could possibly continue supporting this party would be the racists, the misogynists, the rich and the truly insane.
Aren't they disconcerted that someone so loudly proclaiming his support for their candidate has a long history of making public threats directed at elected officials?

Are they really so desperate they willing to accept the support of an alleged child molester and pedophile who bragged about committing statutory rape during a 1998 VH1 taping?

It appears Ted Nugent's violent rhetoric at the NRA convention over the weekend may not be the only problem facing the Romney campaign with their acceptance of his endorsement. Jason Easley at Politicus USA reports that Nugent apparently had a penchant for messing around with underage teenage girls when he was in his thirties and out on the road touring.
The term "pedophile" is not technically correct for what Ted Nugent was doing, but it doesn't make it any less disgusting that the man was out there talking the parents of teenage girls into allowing him to have sex with their underage daughters.
Here's more from their post -- Is Mitt Romney Aware That Ted Nugent Is a Self-Admitted Pedophile?:
Mitt Romney’s Ted Nugent problems are much worse than the rocker’s threats against President Obama. Romney’s real issue is that he has accepted the endorsement of an admitted pedophile.
The Romney campaign reacted to Nugent’s comments tepidly, “Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.” What Mitt Romney didn’t do was distance himself from Ted Nugent, or else he risks alienating the fringe right that he is still oh so desperately trying to court.
Romney’s Ted Nugent problem is about to get a whole lot worse if the mainstream media ever decides to report that Mittens has not rebuked a self-admitted pedophile. In a 1998 episode of VH1’s Behind The Music, Ted Nugent admitted to being a serial pedophile. VH1 politely phrased this as, “his weakness for young women.”
