GOP Sweetheart: Chip Pickering

These C Street folks are a gift that keeps giving and giving!

pickering Former Congressman (and C Streeter) Chip Pickering is reportedly under police investigation for his involvement in a brawl with a rival youth league soccer coach.

Apparently, police were called to Liberty Park in Madison, Mississippi, after Pickering and coach Christopher Hester came to blows when Pickering confronted Hester over the treatment of Pickering's son.

The kicker? Hester claims he was wearing a neck brace at the time of the incident.

You may remember Pickering from his days as a resident of C Street, a D.C. facility that has recently gotten some attention for accommodating beleaguered Christian lawmakers like Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) and Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC).

For his part, Pickering contributed to the good C Street name when his wife Leisha Pickering filed a lawsuit against his alleged mistress, Elizabeth Creekmore-Byrd, for alienation of affection. The lawsuit alleged that Pickering engaged in "wrongful conduct" with Creekmore-Byrd before and during his stay at the C Street house…

Only a true GOP sweetheart would attack a man wearing a neck brace over a kids’ soccer game.

I love these C street guys - they are the gift that keeps on giving! More, more I say! On the other hand, what a douche for hitting someone with a neckbrace on. Really? Why don't you beat up some little kids while you're at it?

I love how the Republicans are hitting back by trying to make a bigger deal about Baucus' girlfriend, but considering the facts that surround the GOP offenders and the Dems, it is like comparing apples to oranges...

Lisa, it is amazing, but they're the best thing we have going for us. Our own party certainly isn't helping much.

RJ, what BARF Baucus did was poor judgment, but at least his GF was qualified and she withdrew her name from consideration because of the conflict of interest. On the other hand, Bitch McConnell's wife was not qualified but still got a key post in the Bush/GOP Regime.
