And made a complete ass out of himself.
http://www.onlineathens.com/stories/043006/opinion_20060430031.shtml
Quote :
"Chuck Jones considers himself one of the good guys.

As a candidate for Athens-Clarke County Commission District 9 this fall, the 26-year-old promises to push local government decision-making out of the back room and into the sunlight. As a self-professed member of the "conservative Christian" movement, Chuck hopes to restore and defend the "basic values of faith, family and friendship" in this community.

And if you don't believe him, then you might want to call Dave, Juliet and the twins for a reference. I'm sure they'll back up his every claim.

Of course, you need to find them first.


Chuck faces a trio of opponents in District 9 this fall. But the fresh-off-the-vine University of Georgia law school grad continues to make waves in a race he missed. Chuck initially targeted District 5 Commissioner David Lynn, but couldn't move into the district in time to qualify. Too bad. It might have been fun to watch.

So I guess we're left with the Nastiest Race Never Run.

Despite that, Chuck still loves taking Lynn to task - often in an awkward, rude and downright mean manner. His attacks center on Lynn's support of a temporary ban on new fraternity and sorority houses in Athens. He's taken his fight to commission meetings, even going so far as to have Lynn demand an apology from him after a meeting earlier this month. On political Web sites, Chuck called Lynn, along with Mayor Heidi Davison, "corrupt" and "criminal" for supporting the moratorium. On his own campaign site, Chuck brands the pair "unprincipled government officials".

But this is the point where I get that pot-meets-kettle feeling.

Yes, while the "Boy Who Would Be Commissioner" needs to work on his interpersonal skills, he also might want to watch who he's calling unprincipled. Especially when he considers that tact part of his arsenal.

His next move, well, I'm afraid it's more Carl Reiner than Karl Rove.

Here's how Chuck explains it: Dave and Juliet Ryan, parents of twins and old friends of Chuck's from his N.C. State undergrad days, expressed some interest in moving into Athens' Cobbham neighborhood from their home in Raleigh, N.C.

They started e-mailing the neighborhood's listserv coaxing opinions and information from residents. They said Chuck would check out the neighborhood for his friends.

But as the exchanges continued, something wasn't right about the Ryans. Sparked by these neighborhood suspicions, a bit of sleuthing showed the e-mails were generated from Athens, not Raleigh.

Now, ever tell one of those lies? Not just a white lie, mind you, but a tale so tall it necessitates a Tolstoy-like plot arc as cover, should it be discovered. That's where Chuck found himself here.

When confronted with the neighborhood findings, Chuck suddenly remembered he helped the family set up the hotmail.com account. The confusion came when he accidentally sent the e-mails from the Ryans' account. That or they sent them from his house. He couldn't remember which one.

As I'm sure you can guess by now, Chuck finally admitted to concocting the Raleigh, N.C., family.

No Dave. No Juliet. No twins.

Chuck told this newspaper he created his imaginary friends as a "pseudonym" for a shy college friend looking for a job in Athens. But after being told the name in confidence, strangely enough, our reporter cannot find him anywhere in North Carolina.

Good grief. With imaginary friends like these, who needs enemies?

A simple browse of Chuck's campaign Web site shows his belief in strong community values. Just look at what the Winchester, Va., native writes: "I believe that the majority of Athens citizens are good, churchgoing folks who hold firm to the basic values of faith, family and friendship. As your Commissioner, I will uphold the values important to this community. I will work hard to ensure that the Commission never forgets the people of faith and the values they hold dear. ..."

Sounds great. But I'm guessing honesty and integrity fall into at least one, if not all of these categories. Too bad this enfant terrible of the campaign trail has struggled with both thus far.

Listen, I think we all enjoy a little creative campaigning at the local level. And poking the folks in power is always fun. Face it, Chuck has a bit of a point. This government often reacts outside the best interest of all, in favor of a vocal minority. But Chuck derails his College Republican revolution by playing not just dirty, but downright dumb.

See, once you dip into imaginary friends, then you've got some serious issues for which to answer. And it doesn't look like Dave, Juliet and the twins are going to be any help here."


If you see chuck post make sure you ask him how Dave, Juliet, and the twins are doing.

yeah, the imaginary friends are just weird. Either it was just a poorly conceived plan to begin with (well, yeah.... of course it was), or we're not hearing everything about it.

just given that much information, i don't see how this family would help him win. Unless they started singing the praises of chuck, or something, just to try to spread good words about him.
fucking weird though.... jeez.

from his site:
Quote :
"I support taking a proactive role in offering grants and incentives for innovative programs to combat domestic violence. I also strongly support efforts such as Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE), to reach out to traditionally underserved victims of domestic violence, such as male victims and homosexual victims.

By giving incentives to domestic violence programs that reach out to underserved populations, we send the message that no one, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, deserves abuse. Domestic abuse is something we will not tolerate in this community."


Doesn't he view homosexuality as a sexual perversion? It seems kind of hypocritical to pretend he likes and want to help them. Lying isn't beyond him though, so that shouldn't be too surprising.

Charles A. Jones, Jr., can run (for office) but he can't hide. Wolfpack2K will always find him.





from http://www.electchuckjones.com/images

then check out these, from his TWW gallery:

he calls himself "world famous men's rights activist, bane of feminists young and old, fingernails on the chalkboard of feminisim"



LOL

and he's also very proud of his 2.4 GPA in when he got his BA in Poly Sci from State.



wow. thats pretty awesome, chuck.

oh, and hey... as legal attorney and potential public servant, what is your position on filesharing copyrighted music and programs? I see in your TWW gallery that you were a Kazaa "Guru"

rarely do i get up on a sunday morning and check tww.....but since football doesnt start for almost another 4 hours, i decided to see whats up on here.

i was not disappointed. this is probably one of the funniest things ive seen on here. i think bobby summed it up quite nicely:

Quote :
"That guy is such a douche bag, and an embarrassment to all Christians."



...haha, i just saw this on his website:
Quote :
"From the beginning of this campaign, my goal has been to be a ‘voice for the voiceless’"


I guess he never really lied...he literally was, the voice for the voiceless (in this case, the voiceless being people that dont exist).
