The Smoking Gun has the story of today’s dumb criminal, Lowell Turpin, who got jealous that his live-in girlfriend was having an affair. What makes it an interesting story is who Turpin suspects of inappropriate contact with his girlfriend.
JULY 31–Suspicious that his live-in girlfriend was planning an affair, a Tennessee man confronted the woman after spotting a photo of an unknown guy on her Facebook page, according to a police report.
Lowell Turpin, 40, “angrily demanded to know who the male was,” reported Anderson County Sheriff’s Department investigators.
Crystal Gray, 38, “replied that it was a picture of Mitt Romney.”
Despite being informed that the man on Gray’s wall was the presumptive Republican presidential candidate (and not some hunky, severely conservative sidepiece), Turpin apparently was not placated. Gray said that he “became upset because she was attempting to communicate with friends through her Facebook account.”
Mr. Turpin is not the brightest bulb in the box…
