Gadfly candidate Doug "the Bug" Bennett recently claimed that his latest opponent, Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins, was formerly registered as a Republican. A quick review of Massachusetts voter records indicate that this is not true and that Sheriff Tompkins has, in fact, always been a registered Democrat. This deception was presumably propagated by Doug the Bug to deter the good Democratic voters of Boston from noting that Doug himself is a Republican who only occasionally registers as a "D" to jump into some race or another of which he's utterly unqualified to be involved.
Doug claims in the same article that he is in good company, citing a short list of Massachusetts Democrats that "use to be Republicans." This list is largely disingenuous (or more likely just misinterpreted by a mental midget and political neophyte) and in the case of Tompkins and Bennett himself, an outright lie.
Bennett, in the same post, here on UHub, claims that he re-registered as a Democrat when he realized that the Republican Party was a party of inequality and intolerance. Bennett however, according to Massachusetts voter records (please see attached) is still a Republican and once again only dropped a "D" after his name so that he could spend a year trolling the internet and attacking real candidates and posters while maintaining his Republican affiliations such as RedMassGroup and others.
As a Massachusetts voter, I'm inclined to agree that the Republican party is one of "inequality and intolerance" and since Bennett has lied about leaving the party, we must conclude that Doug the Bug and his "Crime Posses" are supportive of such things as inequality and intolerance.
In fact, further reports of Doug the Bug's lies are rolling in from folks who's homes he's approached claiming to be a Democrat (a lie) and Sheriff (a lie) when he has intimidated them into allowing him to display his finger-painted graffiti masquerading as campaign signs. Some folks reported here on UHub anonymously that if Doug the Bug likes the location of your property for one of his signs, he doesn't even risk asking, he just puts it up, and then keeps replacing it when you pull it down and put it in the trash. Other folks have reported that when they remove the signs after learning the truth about Bennett from their neighbors, he just comes by relentlessly and puts another up.
Several neighbors of Bennett's 37 South Munroe Terrace residence in Dorchester have expressed fear of his irrational and aggressive behavior when some refused to pollute their properties and offend their other neighbors with Bennett's ridiculous clown signs.
Above all, it must be seriously considered by Suffolk County voters that Bennett was reportedly forced off of the Nantucket Board of Selectmen for using the deputized status of Nantucket's Selectmen to illegally act as a law-enforcement agent to intimidate potential opponents, reporters and anyone else that refused to bend to his twisted whim. In other words, Bennett already has a history of falsely impersonating a law enforcement officer for his own selfish gain and has already slanderously attacked the actual Sheriff of Suffolk County of doing such things - which were proven in court to be untrue (read: more Bennett lies).
Is this really a candidate that anyone should even consider for a political office, let alone a top law enforcement office? The answer is a resounding "no." Doug Bennett is a dishonest, disingenuous, dangerously deluded interloper who should go home to Nantucket.
