The GOP are lucky the Tea Party candidate chose to run for the Constitution Party instead of the GOP. The Constitution Party candidate Eric W. Deaton was charged with unlawful sex with a minor on numerous occasions. Deaton, who was in charge of a childre's program at a local church is being investigated for possuble additional underage dalliances.
He claims the charges are politically based and have o merit. His fallback argument, should the evidence against him be a little more compelling that the law against sex with a minor is unconstitutional because it isn't directly mentioned anywhere in the Constitution. He will then o doubr accuse the judge as an 'activist judge' trying to subvert the origial intet of the document.
