What is going on here! Remember Dale Paterson? He was the Alabama Ag Commission candidate with the gun toting videos. See here. Well he has been arrested for shoplifting?! Twice?! There has got to be some sort of back story here? Is the guy having financial problems? Does he have some sort of mental illness? Is he an alcoholic? This is just insane. The guy endorsed Herman Cain, which knocked him down a notch or two in my book, but I still loved the way he horrified Blues. I pray that he gets whatever issues he has settled.
Update: Here is Peterson’s explanation for the peanut (second) incident. It’s plausible. Maybe he is getting a little senile. Maybe the Powers That Be are out to get him. From what I have read on Facebook from a few people who say they know him, apparently he is a bit eccentric/peculiar, but this is out of character. Anyway, I hope this gets worked out because I want Peterson to stay on the scene.
