Lampley Violates Restraining Order

Looks like sportscaster Jim Lampley has himself some issues. He'll probably blame Bush.
SAN DIEGO -- Sports announcer Jim Lampley was charged Friday with violating a temporary restraining order filed by a former beauty queen. The 57-year-old Lampley faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor charge, the district attorney's office said.

The charge stems from his January arrest in connection with a report of domestic violence. According to court records, 28-year-old Candice Sanders claimed that Lampley attacked her in her Encinitas apartment on New Year's Eve.

"I received injuries to my head, neck and back from his throwing me against the walls and door," she wrote in her request for a straining order.

Sanders, Miss California USA 2003, also alleged that Lampley had been drinking and smoking marijuana before attacking her. She claimed he threw her to the floor at a New York restaurant two months ago.

Outside of his career in sports broadcasting, the moonbat Lampley also enjoys delving into weird conspiracy theories.
At 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on Election Day, I checked the sportsbook odds in Las Vegas and via the offshore bookmakers to see the odds as of that moment on the Presidential election. John Kerry was a two-to-one favorite. You can look it up.

People who have lived in the sports world as I have, bettors in particular, have a feel for what I am about to say about this: these people are extremely scientific in their assessments. These people understand which information to trust and which indicators to consult in determining where to place a dividing line to influence bets, and they are not in the business of being completely wrong. Oddsmakers consulted exit polling and knew what it meant and acknowledged in their oddsmaking at that moment that John Kerry was winning the election.

And he most certainly was, at least if the votes had been fairly and legally counted. What happened instead was the biggest crime in the history of the nation, and the collective media silence which has followed is the greatest fourth-estate failure ever on our soil.
Maybe he ought to lay off the whisky.
