TLP: Ask For The Top Bunk, If It Comes To That
Wannabe candidate Scott Ashjian now has not just the Tea Party mad at him for running a U.S. Senate campaign under their banner. He's also potentially facing criminal charges over an accusation that he wrote a bad check.
Scott Ashjian, the Tea Party candidate running for Senate in Nevada, could soon face a felony charge.
He's accused of writing a bad check for $5000 through his asphalt business. The Clark County District Attorney has filed paperwork requesting Ashjian's arrest, but is still awaiting a signature from a judge.
A spokesperson for the DA's office tells CNN these types of cases are often dismissed without charges if the debt is paid. So far, no word on whether Ashjian plans to settle up for the alleged debt.
That's not all.
The Nevada businessman-turned-candidate is also under fire from Tea Party organizations who have crafted an ad telling Ashjian to "get lost."
The groups insist Ashjian is a pretender who's only running in order to siphon votes from conservatives.
Ashjian apparently has some things to tend to, politically and with the authorities. Getting bounced from the ballot for not being a true teabagger is one thing. Learning about teabagging from your cellmate is another.
