It would appear that our neighbourly State to the North (you know—the one on the
insane "reality-challenged" side of the Potomac) has executed what could possibly be the best anti-comment spam policy in existence:
Walter C. Abbott Jr, a hardworking drywall installer that makes $22,000 a year working for subcontractors, has been complaining to Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley for quite awhile that illegal aliens are driving him out of business. Normally he would send an email or send the message through the governors contact form on his website. Abbott always gave his true name, address and telephone number.
He never heard a response from the governor other than typical form letters. So in utter frustration at lack of action on cracking down on illegal immigration and ending the attack on his livelihood, Abbott took a further step in the last comment he sent to the governor and stated that he wanted to strangle him for not dealing with the problem.
Well that certainly got a response. As the governor's security detail showed up at Abbott's home and arrested him on charges of threatening the governor. He was put in jail and is being held on $2 Million bail. That's right, $2 million bail. More than most multiple murderers receive and as anyone knows who reads this site and follows illegal immigration, much more than most violent illegal aliens and drug smugglers receive who pose a flight risk.
