Democrat In Deep Doo-Doo For Leaving Feces At Musgrave's Office

Literally, as her appeal on free speech grounds to have the charges dropped failed:
A Democratic volunteer facing a criminal charge for leaving dog poop at the office of Republican Rep. Marilyn Musgrave lost a bid Wednesday to have the case dropped.

Kathleen Ensz faces a May 22 trial on a charge of using a noxious substance.

Prosecutors say she left dog poop wrapped in one of Musgrave's mailings at the congresswoman's Greeley office last June because she was angry over repeatedly getting such mailings. Ensz was a volunteer for the Weld County Democratic Party at the time.

Ensz's attorneys have argued what she did was a form of speech protected by the First Amendment.

A judge on Wednesday denied a motion to dismiss the charge.

Ensz, 64, is a retired French professor who taught at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.

Using a noxious substance is a misdemeanor carrying a jail sentence of up to six months and a fine of $50 to $750.
As I said back in January, shouldn't Ensz, the Democrats' self-appointed "craptivist" and former professor be more eloquent and insightful than reducing herself to the behavior of poo-flinging monkeys?

Beware the Democrats' next smear campaign . . . or at least hold your nose!
