Because We Love A Good Denial

The Coup Klux Klan is exceeding expectations:

In secret recording, Florida Republican threatens to send Russian-Ukrainian ‘hit squad’ after rival

In case you think that was a humorous, throw-away line (“It was a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it” when caught eating the last slice of cake comes to mind, for some reason…), well think again:

“I really don’t want to have to end anybody’s life for the good of the people of the United States of America,” Braddock said at one point in the conversation last week, according to the recording exclusively obtained by POLITICO. “That will break my heart. But if it needs to be done, it needs to be done. Luna is a f—ing speed bump in the road. She’s a dead squirrel you run over every day when you leave the neighborhood.”

In the recording, Braddock early in the call brought up the alleged assassins. He also made rambling statements about getting financial help from fellow Freemasons or by somehow importing millions of dollars from Malta and Gibraltar.

“I have access to a hit squad, too, Ukrainians and Russians,” he said about three minutes into the call, adding “don’t get caught out in public supporting Luna. … Luna’s gonna go down and I hope it’s by herself.”

Predictably, Braddock has issued the denial, and boy-howdy, it’s a good one:

Asked repeatedly via text if he mentioned Russian-Ukrainian hit squads, Braddock wouldn’t give a yes or no answer, saying he had not heard the recording and that it’s “allegedly me … there is no proof of that.” He also suggested the recording “may even be altered and edited.”

“This is a dirty political tactic that has caused a lot of people a lot of stress and is completely unnecessary,” he said.

“The folks in possession of whatever recording they think they have of myself or someone else (which may even be altered and edited) will be facing civil damages suit(s) when the paperwork is file [sic] with the county and felony charges after I file with the local police department,” Braddock said in his text message to POLITICO. “I strongly advise not to get involved because the civil suits will continue to be filed until people stop sharing them because whomever is on the recording did not consent to be recorded in my humble opinion.”

Politico has posted the audio, if you want to listen.

    If he alleges he was illegally recorded and also suing those who allegedly recorded him, doesn’t that prove it’s his voice on the recording? That squashed squirrel on the road has more synapses firing than this dude.

    Just a question of time before one of his weaker minded followers (apparently their all weak minded) takes it upon himself, herself, themselves to organize their very own Russian-Ukrainian hit squad. I fear for the future of the American Experiment…

    That sentence right there tells me all I need to know about William (Billy Boy) Braddock. I feel sorry for his children if he has any.

    That right there is admitting to planning a mass casualty event. that ups it to terrorism charges.

    For some reason using dirty political tactics (i.e. the truth) against GQP fascists gives me comfort.

    Threatening to have your opponent murdered is the kind of thing that would raise your profile among Republican primary voters. Especially if it’s a woman. I expect this guy to do very well.
