The coolest place on the internet, according to this tagline.

I’ve never met anyone in my life who is conniving and dishonest as this guy. He’s my brother so it’s hard to talk about this, but I believe that if he gets elected, he’ll eventually serve time in prison.

The brother of GOP congressional candidate Kerry Bentivolio. This would be an incendiary thing for even a fleeting associate to say about a candidate, let alone a family member, but it’s not the oddest thing to come out of the race for Michigan’s 11th congressional district. A former schoolteacher, Bentivolio was accused of grabbing children’s desks and screaming at them, telling students of his goal to “make each of you cry at least once,” and admitting to a class that they “are just a paycheck to me.” According to his brother, he owes $20,000 in a botched housing deal; Bentivolio responded to accusation by asking the FBI to investigate his brother (so he says; the FBI hasn’t confirmed that it’s doing any investigating into the matter). Bentivolio, who once said that he “has a problem” determining whether or not he’s actually Santa Claus, is currently polling 8 points ahead of his Democratic opponent. source
