I'm sure he *thought* he'd be a hero, but instead he's going to prison

During the 2008 campaign there were a few people so crazy that they voluntarily fell on the sword for Obama, probably thinking that they would be national heroes or rewarded with a seat in his administration. For instance there was "Troopergate" and the myriad of baseless ethics complaints, and not to mention David Kernell, the son of a (Democrat) congressman, who hacked Palin's email account thinking that he would set the world on fire with its "scandalous contents." He thought he was going to win the Congressional Medal of Honor and be BFF with Obama.

Instead, the 22-year-old was found guilty of using criminal means to interfere with a federal election, convicted of a felony and will probably get some time in prison. Was it worth it?

He was found not guilty of wire fraud and the jury deadlocked on a fourth charge of identity theft, according to a report by

Love this post. I hope the little punk gets what's rightfully coming to him and his "Daddy Damocrat" won't be able to get him out of serving the amount of time he should. Of course the outcome of this hasn't seen to much light of day in the "news" has it? We don't have to guess how much it would be if he was the son of a Republican.
Obama's BFF, lol.
