Today's Florida Republican Sex Criminal Actually Offed Himself
Nobody is mourning the suicide of St. Petersburg City Council Chairman John Bryan -- "a staunch Republican and former finance chairman for U.S. Sen. Connie Mack" -- who sucked a tailpipe Friday afternoon after the story broke that he had sexually molested his adopted daughters and another little girl.
Earlier on Friday, a judge had ordered Bryan to stay away from the girls. He was found dead in his garage, slumped in a golf cart. A riding lawnmower was still running and a couple of four-wheel-drive things had already run out of gas.
Bryan was, obviously, "active in the local foster care system." He made his money from Florida housing tracts. Local Republicans knew he sexually abused kids "for two decades," of course.
