Arizona State Rep. Can't Drive 55 Because MAGA Jesus Said So


Arizona Republican state Rep. Paul Mosley got busted doing 97mph in a 55mph zone, bragged to the officer about going 140 mph, and claimed political office gives him immunity from prosecution. Who does he think he is, Donald Trump? PPFFFFT.

According to police reports, a sheriff's deputy spotted Mosley driving fast and furiously through traffic late one afternoon in March. After pulling Mosley over, the state rep stuck his hand out of the window and began waving a placard to show that he was a elected official, telling the deputy that he shouldn't waste his time writing a citation because he had legislative immunity.

What a fucking snowflake!

Body camera footage shows the deputy trying to explain to Mosley that driving “97 mph in a 55 mph zone is considered criminal speed," but Mosley says he was just trying to get home to "surprise his wife." He then whips out his brass balls to brag about going "130, 140" in his Lexus LS 400, "you know, as long as it's safe."

MOSLEY: “Well, no, it's, it's, like, I'm trying to surprise my wife, [inaudible] as long as it's, you know, as long as it's safe, but… I don't even notice that I'm going very fast because of this, you know, car just, you know, nice wheels, nice, you know, suspension, but… Yeah I mean, I don't, I don't break the law because I can, but because I, [INAUDIBLE]"

DEPUTY: “Just trying to get home, a hundred and thirty."

MOSLEY: “Well..."

DEPUTY: “Okay. Well, your logic is flawed for me. I see too many accidents. That's -- that's not safe."

There IS a law in Arizona that grants members of the state legislature immunity "from arrest in all cases except treason, felony, and breach of the peace" when the legislature is in session. Records show the legislature was technically in session during at time Mosley was pulled over, so he'll more than likely get off with a public flogging.

If Mosley sounds familiar, that's because he's the same jerkoff who last year proposed repealing compulsory education, calling schools a "privilege" and bitching about giving kids "a meal or two and sometimes...a backpack of food" to take home.

What a fucking patriot.

In order to "avoid even the appearance of impropriety," the La Paz County Attorney's Office kicked the case over to the to the Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys Association Council, which then handed the case over to Cochise County. Right now the case is still in review.

Yesterday the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police announced that it had withdrawn its endorsement of Mosley in upcoming elections. After the bodycam footage was released, Mosley made a half-assed apology (on Facebook) where he expressed regret for driving like a reckless teenager, stating, "I have no excuse for any of this..."

Where the hell are all these crooked bastards coming from? It's like there's some kind of a black hole farting out villains from bad 1980s movies. Didn't any of these Gordon Gekko neo-Nazi wannabes see the end of Wall Street, or Lethal Weapon 2?

SPOILER ALERT: Eventually, Gordon Gekko and his minions get arrested! The apartheid asshole gets his immunity revoked! There won't be a U2 charity concert for super rich douchebags who get locked up for corruption, it'll be a group therapy session in federal prison. Maybe Sammy Hagar can lead this allstar round table, that way Mosley can finally meet Donald Trump, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and a dozen Russian spies.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
