You probably haven’t heard of Thomas J. Fuentes, who died earlier this month. Chances are, if you had met him (and assuming you are a rational, live-and-let-live sort of person), you’d have spent the rest of your life wishing you hadn’t.

Claims to fame: Failed presidential candidate; anti-choice, anti-union, anti-NEA, anti-PBS, anti-gay extremist; adulterer; wife beater
Moral apex: Cheating and beating caused his wife to file — and withdraw — divorce papers (and at least one restraining order) four times in 14 years.
Divine retribution: He was finally kicked out of his state seat by Democratic Mexican-American Loretta Sanchez. Dornan is none too fond of non-white people, nor women; he called supporters of his first female opponent “lesbian spearchuckers.”
Fun fact #1: Once implied that Barry Goldwater’s son engaged in bestiality.
Fun fact #2: Told liberal candidates the way to win was “by proclaiming you are a sodomite and engage [sic] in anal sex all the time.”
“What beat me was more homosexual money than in any race in history, including from a group called Lesbians for Motherhood.”

Suggested Bible reading for Mr. Dornan:
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
— Galatians 5:14
