What the fudgesicles? Man running for Congress offers $100k for nudes of teen girl he doesn't like.
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, some skin for their skins. (via Facebook)
A possibly crazy guy who has nevertheless been invited on Fox News multiple times (not that those things are mutually exclusive), probable troll, and person who wants to defeat Tea Party candidate Dave Brat in November's election to fill Eric Cantor's old House seat, really, really wants nudes of this 19-year-old girl.
So, many of you may remember hearing about Texas cheerleader and big game hunter Kendall Jones. A lot of people don't like her, because she has a popular Instagram account full of her killing big game animals in Africa, most species of which aren't famous for their plentiful numbers. Many people took umbrage to this. She, and others, argued that properly licensed big game hunting provides the revenue needed for successful conservation and incentivizing landowners to combat poachers. That's not what I'm interested in.
We treat nudity and sex in America as bad and dirty. Yet, we glorify scum like #KendallJones for hunting and killing animals— DickinsonForCongress (@VoteMike2014) July 10, 2014
Neither is it what write-in Congressional candidate Mike Dickinson is interested in. He offered $100,000 for nudes and "dirt" on the girl, perhaps hoping to motivate voters whose #1 and #2 issues are the environment and destroying young lives, and not in that order.
If any ex boyfriends of #KendallJones are out there we want and will pay for sex stories or info about her— DickinsonForCongress (@VoteMike2014) July 10, 2014
Now, he may well be a performance artist of sorts (emphasis on "of sorts"). He managed to dupe Fox News into thinking he was the actual Democratic candidate back in February, twice, after he goaded them into inviting him on the network by declaring a "war" on Fox News.

Whether this guy is a provocateur or a mentally unstable person with excellent Twitter skills, I think we can all agree that this lands outside the boundaries of what we've deemed acceptable...and we've deemed a lot of messed-up stuff acceptable. I mean, he's a troll, right? And not the kinda amusing kind.
Yeah, he's a troll.
