I can has civilitee?How on earth has Your Wonkette not previously been aware of Florida congressional candidate Osvaldo “Ozzie” deFaria (R-Arkham Asylum) before now? The self-funded contender for the GOP nomination to run against Debbie Wasserman Schultz in District 20 has already depicted the DNC chair wearing a dog collar and said at a conference that “we must send her back to the pound.” (We cannot be certain, but we think maybe he is calling Wasserman Schultz a bitch. Do you think he is calling her a bitch? Possibly.) Now he has taken to screaming at supporters of Karen Harrington, his opponent in the GOP primary, whom he also calls a slut. Oh, yes, and he’s also had a couple of domestic violence charges. IS IT TOO LATE TO RETHINK THAT VEEP CHOICE, MR. ROMNEY?

So, just a few of this lowlife’s highlights :

  • In 2005 and 2006, deFaria was arrested on domestic violence charges after assaulting his wife’s boyfriend, Charles Seibold. (The deFarias were “on a break,” you see, and eventually divorced. Apart from the domestic assault, it’s pretty much like a sitcom!) According to the affadavits in the cases, in several separate incidents deFaria ripped Siebold’s sunglasses off his face and broke them, chased Siebold across a field, and told both Siebold and Elaine deFaria several times that he would kill Siebold. DeFaria insists that, despite these incidents, which resulted in a no-contact order, he now has “a very amicable relationship with his ex-wife.”
  • DeFaria’s website featured this ad (since removed) depicting Wasserman Shultz with a dog collar photoshopped onto her neck. Classy!
  • Subtle innuendo

    • While campaigning in the district, deFaria has been seen pulling up campaign signs for his opponent, Karen Harrington. At other times, he has gotten into shouting matches with Harrington supporters, including one voter who left a note on Harrington’s campaign website saying that, after she told deFaria that she was not interested in taking a brochure because she supported Harrington,

      He then said, your not interested in the mud slinging she is doing against me? I said, sir your [sic] the one doing the mud slinging. he got angry, and said loudly: Karen Harrington is a SLUT! I said, excuse me: Karen Harrington is a slut, that comment is exactly what I am talking about, your the one slinging mud. He got mad and he and the other three people in the SUV, sped off.

    • DeFaria also completely made up a Tea Party organization that he said supported him, and claims to be a successful businessman, although his business records are unavailable and he’s being sued by a campaign consulting firm for $23,000 in unpaid fees. That’s some party, that Party of Personal Responsibility!

    Is Ozzie deFaria a Great American, or what? For a moment, we thought maybe we had discovered the New Alvin Greene, until we noticed that this guy is A) actually running a serious campaign (for a certain value of “serious,” at least) and B) he is not some weirdo drafted by ratfuckers to run as a Demmycrat. Also, C) Jim already found the New Alvin Greene, and he’s a beaut. So instead, we will proclaim Ozzie deFaria the New Basil Marceaux. Except that some people may actually vote for him, because, well, FLORIDA, derp.
