A former Republican candidate who had touted his “family values” was arrested Tuesday for allegedly putting a tracking device in his estranged wife’s car.
David Bellow, a former candidate for Hardin County Judge and commissioner in Texas, posted a $5,000 bond Tuesday night and was released from jail, according to media outlet KFDM. He was charged with installation of an unlawful tracking device — a Class A misdemeanor.
He faces up to a year in the county jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000 if convicted.
Bellow touted his Christian faith and family values during his run for Hardin County Judge in 2014.
“The most important thing you can know about me is that I believe in Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and I put God first in my life,” he said in a statement posted on TexasGOPVote. “My parents brought me up in Christ and taught me great family values.”
Along with his unsuccessfully bid for Hardin County Judge, Bellow also launched a petition seeking to ban the sale of alcohol in Hardin County. And he claimed to have “filed one of the first lawsuits against Obamacare.”

Accused child molester Roy Moore defends Brett Kavanaugh: ‘I too was the object of false allegations’
Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.
Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.
In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.
"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
Trump says ‘many options’ on Iran response
US President Donald Trump said Wednesday he has "many options" in addition to military strikes against Iran and that details of newly announced sanctions will come within 48 hours.
Asked by reporters about a possible US attack on Iran, Trump said "there are many options. There's the ultimate option and there are options a lot less than that."
He explained that by "ultimate option" he meant "war."
Trump said that the specifics of sanctions he announced earlier would be made public "over the next 48 hours."
US ally Saudi Arabia says Iran was behind a missile or drone attack setting ablaze major oil facilities last weekend.
