‘YIKES’: Hypocrisy from Fauxcahontas on Benghazi fundraising outrage

The latest strategy Democrats have used to try to flip the Benghazi scandal back on Republicans is to accuse Republicans of unethically exploiting the issue to raise funds.
But hold the phone. Could it be that Democrats aren’t holding themselves to the same standard? That never happens, right?
It seems Fauxcahontas (aka Elizabeth Warren) is doing some fundraising of her own using the Benghazi investigation. (The big red donation widget in the sidebar has been taken down from her blog since that screen shot was taken. Because busted.)

Cue the butthurt.

El Paso County, Colo., Sheriff embroiled in Weiner-esque sex scandal

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, one of the most powerful Republican officials in southern Colorado, stands accused of a long list of ethical violations, according to a bombshell article by Colorado Springs Gazette reporter Dave Philipps:

Maketa allegedly has had sexual relationships with three female subordinates for years, traveling with them using public funds, promoting them to top jobs despite objections from commanders and threatening anyone he suspected of mentioning the relationships, according to interviews and documents obtained by The Gazette.

Both Maketa and the three subordinates deny the allegations. They have yet to address the shirtless selfie (sent from Maketa’s phone number to Sheriff’s Office comptroller Dorene Cardarelle along with the message “Wish you were with me”) and salacious text messages such as this one:

“I think often about touching kissing and licking every inch of your amazing body,” said a message dated 1:48 a.m. Jan. 4, 2009, from Maketa’s phone number that is typical of the exchanges with Cardarelle.

An independent digital forensics expert confirmed that the messages obtained by The Gazette originated from Cardarelle’s email account on county computer servers.

Tiffany Huntz, a former nude model and one-time operator of a home-based sex toy business, is one of the subordinates with whom Maketa is accused of having a sexual relationship. She has a Twitter feed but has not tweeted about the controversy as yet.

If the allegations are true, Maketa will likely face heavy pressure to resign:

Here’s the latest injustice Sandra Fluke is coming out against:
Wage theft? Sort of like this?
That’s certainly not what Fluke has in mind, though many thought her reminder about “wage theft” was pitiful coming from somebody “fighting” to have others’ hard-earned money used for her wants.
The inevitable solution to that problem:
Of course!
