Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

When U.S. Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) launched his extreme-longshot bid to unseat Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX), The National Memo noted that the genuinely crazy congressman’s long history of legal woes could cause major problems for his campaign.

Barely a week later, one of those troubles — a campaign office that Webster, TX, officials shut down in November for multiple safety violations — is already coming back to haunt them.

On Tuesday, Talking Points Memo obtained photos of the condemned office — and they are nastier than you could have imagined.

For example, Stockman probably wouldn’t even have used this bathroom while he was living on the streets in the ’80s:

And if you thought that Team Stockman’s version of the “SNAP challenge” was gross before, now imagine the food being made in this kitchen (which comes complete with an “If babies had guns they wouldn’t be aborted” bumper sticker):

With his campaign being run from a place like this, it becomes a bit easier to understand how Stockman is trailing Cornyn by 44 points in the polls.

    Oh, when the headline said the office was disgusting, I thought you were only referring to his tactics, not the physical property! Of course, given the nature of his political attacks, the fact that he is in a condemned building doesn’t surprise me. Nastiness breeds nastiness.

    I don’t like Stockman. And I don’t like Cornyn. But the best thing to happen will be for Stockman to lose the election to Senate and his House seat, as well. If we have to put up with Cornyn as a result, so be it, until next time, at least, when, hopefully, we will have become more “blue”.

    The physical surroundings fit the rhetoric put out by these t-baggers.

    Is that a hole in the wall above the toilet? Why is that there? Hmmm!

    Contrary to the odd notion that lawmakers create prosperity, there is nothing of the law that enables prosperity other than its use to prevent governments from repressing liberty with the leaden threads of centralized control.

    I wonder what slum lord owns that building. A close friend? or himself? I bet he didn’t spend much time there ..
