Boo! - WonketteA Halloween Story

Remember the lawyer up in Maine who busted out the George W. Bush drunk-driving arrest records right before the 2000 election? Well, he was arrested today for standing on the side of the highway dressed in a rubber Bin Laden mask, waving a plastic gun and a sign promoting a Taxpayer Bill of Rights on next week’s ballot. UPDATE: You know, because if Osama is campaigning for something on your local ballot, chances are it’s not that great for Americans.

Thomas J. Connolly is a bigwig defense attorney in Maine and ran as he Democrat candidate for governor eight years ago. He apparently likes to dress up in costumes and pull weird stunts along the interstate.

Connolly’s wife says he’s “marvelously eccentric.” And now he’s got a misdemeanor charge for whatever the hell law you break in such situations.
