Randy Todd, a Republican candidate for the Lee County Board of Commissioners, was charged Wednesday with assaulting his step son.
Todd, 63, faces one count of simple assault. He posted $2,500 bond on Wednesday and was released from custody.
Captain Jeff Johnson of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called Wednesday to an incident between Todd and his 15-year-old step son, and that the step son and Todd’s wife then took out the charges.
Simple assault is a Class 2 misdemeanor in North Carolina.
Todd faced controversy in February when he went on Facebook during the Super Bowl halftime show and compared it to “Mexican burlesque” and saying the performers should “do it in English next time.” Todd is one of six candidates running for three at large seats on the Lee County Board of Commissioners.
Jim Womack’s Republican Party talks about its commitment to “Judeo Christian Values” and “The Rule of Law,” while supporting Randy the Racist, who was just arrested for breaking the law by committing an assault. I guess this is a “do what we say, not what we do” situation.
Kinda like “Creepy” Joe Biden minus the sexual part, huh?
J bro . . . really? The (D)’s are NOT ones to talk seriously. Locally, State, or Fed
With obvious anger management issues & a lack of self control voters would be wise to think of the example Mr Todd will set for his constituents should he be elected. Normally a candidate with integrity would step away from a political campaign & seek to get his house in order, time will tell if Mr. Todd is such a man.
When has a Democrat ever heeded that advice? Better yet, when have you given that advice to a Democratic candidate?
Both parties have there share of nut jobs, Randy is Lee Counties Republican nut job only topped by Jim Womack and his wife. The Democrats have rising star nut job Mark Lovick on there team.
