Completing a prolific downfall that started with allegations of rape, former Montgomery County Republican Party Chairman Robert J. Kerns agreed Monday to a plea deal that requires him to spend 15 years as a registered sex offender and two years on probation.

Kerns pleaded no contest to misdemeanor indecent assault of a female worker from his law firm after an alcohol-fueled office party in October 2013.

Kerns, 67, will spend no time in jail.

For a man who once shared the spotlight at gatherings with Gov. Corbett, the deal was a relatively soft landing. At the time of his arrest a year ago, he faced allegations that he raped the woman, then 51, and drugged her with the sleeping aid Ambien.

Sovereign citizens are not explicitly violent, but over the past few years the number of lone wolf attacks on law enforcement by followers of the movement, have prompted the FBI to consider sovereign citizens a major domestic terrorism threat. This summer, the University of Maryland's National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism released the results of a study finding sovereign citizens are perceived to be the single greatest threat to law enforcement, above Islamist extremists and patriot or militia groups.


A Minnesota Republican Party county official has come under scrutiny for penning several Facebook posts calling Muslims "parasites" who deserved to be killed.

The local Star Tribune was the first to notice the online screeds by Jack Whitley, chairman of the Big Stone County Republican Party.

In a post on Wednesday, Whitley argued America should "frag" any and all "muslim terrorists" rather than waterboard them. He appeared not to differentiate violent extremists from "millions" of American Muslims, all of whom he deemed "parasites":

I am opposed to waterboarding muslim (sic) terrorists because it is a waste of resources. They are muslims, they are terrorist (sic), we know where they are from, we know where their buddies are, we know where thier mosque's (sic) are, we know millions of these parasites travel to Mecca every year and when…FRAG ‘EM!

U.S. Senator Rand Paul, a possible Republican candidate for president in 2016, is calling for a formal declaration of war against Islamic State militants who control parts of Iraq and Syria, the New York Times reported on Monday. In an interview on Saturday, Paul said his proposal would limit the duration of military action to one year and significantly restrict the use of ground forces. His proposal differs from others circulating in Washington in that he wants to formally declare war against Islamic State, which Congress has not done since World War Two, the newspaper said.

The former chairman of the Hampton, Virginia, Republican Party was arrested Wednesday on charges of impersonating a police officer. A 33-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman in Newport News told police that a man who identified himself as a police officer detained and searched them and then fled the area in an SUV. Kyle P. Adams, of Newport News, is charged with two counts of impersonating a police officer, two counts of abduction and two counts of use of a firearm in commission of a felony. Adams, 27, previously entered an Alford plea to embezzling $1,100 from a city councilman.

Where's the orbital blowout fracture? I can't seem to find it.

Look at the beating Wilson took. No wonder he went for his gun.

It's a bit surprising that his aim was so accurate after sustaining such grievous injuries.
