House GOP Primary Candidate Gets Jail For Slashing Rival’s Tires
A man who ran for the Republican nomination for a U.S. House seat is now in jail after accusations that he slashed the tires of at least one former rival, reported KOB Dec. 28.
A police detective in Albuquerque told the news outlet that a surveillance video of a man slashing the tires of Janice Arnold-Jones’ car on Dec. 20 “did appear to be him.”
Gary Smith sought the GOP nomination for New Mexico’s 1st District, but he was removed from the ballot after Arnold-Jones, his Republican opponent, filed a lawsuit that claimed Smith did not actually have enough signatures. The judge agreed.
