News That Matters
News sources are reporting this afternoon that the Assemblyman Who Shall Not Be Named reported finding a dead goat in his front yard last night upon returning from Albany. Tied to the goat's neck was a sign that referred to Viva M-13... an alleged Latino gang. None of the news reports I've read so far have the full text of the message so we'll have to take his word for it.
"It had what amounts to a death threat," Ball said, pointing to a sign that he said he found tied to the goat's neck containing, in broken Spanish, a reference to the gang MS-13.When questioned further about why a goat would be used the intrepid candidate replied,
"I don't know how complicated these people are," he said. "But I was in the 4H for 10 years and I did raise and milk goats."Well, that's all the reason to use a goat I guess.
According to the Journal News report:
"Ball, 31, has in the past referred to milking goats. At his 30th birthday party at a North Salem restaurant in September 2007, Ball's affinity for goats was on display in many of the photos around the room that showed him posing with the animals through the years."Hmmm. This just gets better.
