Female ‘vampire’ busted for trying to eat elderly man

Published

on

An elderly Florida man needed stitches Wednesday after a 22-year-old woman announced she was a vampire and began biting his face and neck.

Milton Ellis, 69, said that he had fallen asleep in his electric wheelchair on the porch of a vacant Hooters in St. Petersburg. He awoke to find Josephine Smith on top of him.

“I’m a vampire, I am going to eat you,” Smith told Ellis, according to an affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun.

St. Petersburg police said that Smith had bitten chunks off of Ellis’ face and part of his lip.

Ellis called police after escaping to a nearby Shell gas station where he had first met Smith earlier in the evening. When police finally located Smith — covered in blood — at the Hooters, she could not recall the location of her pants or why her panties were around her ankles. Ellis maintains that she was fully clothed when he left her.

Smith was arrested on charges of assaulting an elderly person and was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Ellis had also been arrested at least 12 times over the past four years for panhandling, disorderly intoxication and other minor charges, police said.

In August, a Texas man claiming to be a 500-year-old vampire was arrested on felony charges after breaking into a woman’s home and biting her.

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
