It is possible if you just look in front of your face: Mainstream media finds corrupt Republican candidate.

Want to find another scandal-ridden GOPer running for a seat in Raleigh? Try looking in another crowded Republican field for a state House seat. There's one candidate who was found drunk in a wrecked car with a girl half his age -- only a few years ago. Hint: the district is west of Greensboro ... and Charlotte ... and east of Asheville. This might not be a GOP pickup after all if this former GOP legislator wins the primary.

At least Uncle Festzer still isn't gay.
