“What are you f**king looking at you motherf**king cop!”
-Jon Powers, October 23, 2004

The citation clearly proves that the talking points from the Powers campaign (that it was jaywalking, not disorderly conduct) are false.

  1. And note the right-hand margin.

  2. Because no one has ever denied a report before.

  3. Joe permalink

    And “I did not have sex with that woman…Ms. Lewinsky”

  4. Are you guys implying that a ticket is prima facie evidence of guilt?

  5. Stephanie permalink

    So a few years ago a young guy had a little run-in with the police. It’s not like he was blowing lines or drinking and driving–no, that’s just what the current PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES used to do. Yet somehow Bush is morally acceptable because it’s “in his past” and (of course) God speaks to him, and God can’t be wrong.
    You can’t have it both ways, people. Either someone is permanently evil because of his past behavior, or he’s allowed to grow up and become an adult. I actually went to high school with Jon, and even at that age he was a smart, caring, responsible guy. Everybody raises a little hell at some point. Does that necessarily invalidate his/her ability to lead?
