Name That Party: Serial Killer Edition

February 5th, 2013 12:22 AM

On FOX Chicago News at Nine this evening, station legal analyst Larry Yellen reported on “John Wayne Gacy speaks: FOX 32 uncovers never-before-heard tapes.”  Yellen noted:

The part-time clown and one-time precinct captain killed 33 young men between 1972 and 1978--most of them by strangulation, hiding many of their bodies in the crawl space of his Northwest Side home.

What the legal analyst didn’t mention is that Gacy was a Democratic precinct captain.  In 1978, he even managed to have his photo taken with First Lady Rosalynn Carter.

Maybe Yellen thinks the serial killer's political affiliation is irrelevant.  But would that have been true were Gacy a Republican?
