Local Tea Party leader sentenced to jail for animal cruelty

Remember last month's case of John Paul Roth, the Campbell County Tea Party activist who was busted for selling drugs?

On Friday, he was taken into custody and hauled to jail for a cruelty to animals case from 2013 in which he neglected horses on his property. He was actually convicted and sentenced to jail for this case back in 2014, but for some reason, they never made him serve his time until now. The 6-month sentence is supposed to end in January.

And you won't believe what Roth said about why he was jailed.

He said he was jailed because Campbell County government is out to get conservatives.

That's really funny!

He really said that! I burst out laughing when I read that!

A Tea Party member actually thinks Campbell County - I repeat, Campbell County - is treating him worse because of his right-wing political views. You can't make this shit up!

The local media has ignored this development. Only Fort Thomas Matters - not exactly a champion of liberality - has covered it.
