HAVE SOME WINEFormer Missouri House Speaker Rod Jetton, who was arrested Monday night for allegedly beating the fucking shit out of a ladyfriend during a case of BDSM gone wrong — possibly because he had roofied her, which made it super hard for her to say “green balloons” during the fifth or sixth donkey punch and/or choking episode — has dissolved his lobbying firm, Jetton and Associates. According to a statement, he wants to spend more time with his family HAAHAHAH OH YES SURE YOU DO DIPSHIT.

Also, his firm was actively lobbying while he was House Speaker, which doesn’t sound illegal at all:

Former House Speaker Rod Jetton sent an aftershock through Missouri’s political terrain Tuesday, saying he will close his political consulting firm to fight a felony charge that he assaulted a Sikeston woman.

Jetton “will be leaving politics to deal with false allegations and spend time with his family,” said his attorney, Stephen Wilson, in a written statement. “He is confident that when the facts of this case are heard, he will be found innocent.”

Formed in 2004, the same year Jetton was elected speaker, Jetton and Associates eventually became one of the go-to GOP political shops in the state because of his connections in the General Assembly.

Anyway we just posted this as an excuse to show the police photo, obvs.

    People Of Earth: do not do any of this. Do not roofie your mistress and punch her and rape her and then scold her for not using the safeword. Furthermore, do not harbor really obvious conflict-of-interest scams for years. And if at all in doubt, do not live in Missouri.

    These instructions should be relatively easy to follow. Instead of doing these things, you simply, you know, don’t do them.

    Can’t have teh gheyz you know.
    He wrote in an op-ed:
    “Thanks to that [deletion of lines from the bill], it is now legal to engage in deviate sexual intercourse with someone of the same sex here in Missouri. This law had been on our books for decades.”

    Shifting the blame is the way to proceed in every case. The only question is where to shift the blame. I’d say he should blame it on the gay muslins. That will get the teabaggers going, and they’ll follow along lock-step. Or, in the teabag fashion, they’ll gladly put his TruckNutz right in their mouths.

    “An attorney for Rod Jetton says the former legislator is not guilty of the assault charge from Sikeston, and moreover, plans to defend himself vigorously.” THAT should be a pretty sight.

    First he’ll go out in the kitchen to get a glass of wine for the jury, and then settle down on the couch with them. Later that night…

    [re=475605]oldguy[/re]: I remember when my congressman, Donald “Buzz” Lukens defended himself against charges of statutory rape with a 13 year old black girl. (He was a late 50s white man, from Middletown, Ohio). He admitted that he’d done the nasty with her, many times, between her 13th and 16th years. But he’d done nothing wrong! Somehow it was OK for *him*. I suspect Jetton (and a lot of our politicrooks) think along those lines.
