Texas’ Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold has been verfied as the owner of a lascivious web site.
Because politicians compete for public trust during election season by often making exaggerated claims of virtuous changes they intend to make, it is always surprising to learn of their personal vices they tried so skillfully to hide.
Apparently while Texas’ 27th District Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold was voting to reduce the amount of veteran disability checks and impeach Obama, he was also preparing to make a fortune via a technology company once his term ended.
Representative Farenthold bought several web properties, including blakesucks.net, blakesucks.org and Blow-me.org. BuzzFeed confirmed that Blow-me.org is tied to the same telephone number and email address (email@example.com) that his election committee is connected to. Although these sites are inactive, it is rumored that Blake’s intent was to sell them to the pornographic industry.
To add to Blake’s looming cloud of utter debauchery, on Friday, December 12, 2014, a former employee of Blake, Lauren Greene, filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against the Congressman.
Greene claims, “Farenthold regularly drank to excess, and because of his tendency to flirt, the staffers who accompanied him to Capitol Hill functions would joke that they had to be on ‘red head patrol’ to keep him out of trouble. He repeatedly tried to gauge my interest in him.”

It was an exciting first day of the 2015 PDC Darts World Championships, with defending champion Michael van Gerwen being forced to work hard and No. 13 seed Wes Newton being bundled out in the first round.
Van Gerwen‘s 3-1 win over Joe Cullen will look convincing enough, but it was a case of the scoreboard not telling the full story. Cullen showed his class and forced every set to five legs, often finishing where Van Gerwen could not.
Both men at times showed brilliance. Most memorably at the beginning of the fourth set, Van Gerwen threw seven perfect darts in a row, while Cullen threw five. It was a furious start and was the only time Van Gerwen really got pumped, having just dropped his first set of the match on the previous leg.
But they often struggled to back it up.
Cullen had multiple high-scoring legs which he finished with accuracy, but was unable to make Van Gerwen pay, struggling to hit the trebles on the next leg.
Van Gerwen was similar, although never allowed Cullen to get too far away from him. He threw a series of loose darts throughout the middle of the contest, hitting far more ones and fives than you would expect to see from the man.
His finishing was hardly clinical, either. While he was not missing most by much, it was only on the double 16 that he really looked comfortable, and he showed hints of frustration at this.
But he did enough. Often the first round can be a banana skin game for the top seeds, particularly in this case as Joe Cullen has for a while been known as a talented, although inconsistent, youngster.
One match later, the first round really was a banana skin for Wes Newton, as the three-time quarter-finalist was bundled out by Cristo Reyes.
Reyes qualified for the match by virtue of a 4-0 victory over Christian Perez in the preliminary round, which only the lowest-rated unseeded players have to compete in. It is not uncommon for this to act as an advantage though.
Not for the first time, the underdog looked relaxed from the get-go in their second appearance of the night, while the favourite was nervy early on. Memorably it was a similar case last year, where New Zealand’s Rob Szabo went within one dart of a monumental upset of Phil Taylor.
Reyes shot out to a 2-0 lead. He showed composure and accuracy, finding the treble regularly and finishing where he had the chance.
But Newton came roaring back and the pressure got to Reyes, who began throwing some looser darts. The result was Newton tying the game up at 2-2 to force a fifth set, which went down to the wire.
With the score at 5-5, the match was forced into a sudden-death leg and after Reyes won the all important shoot-out to decide who would go first, the Spaniard went on to win the match.
Earlier in the night, three-time World Champion John Part was beaten 3-2 by up-and-comer Keegan Brown. Part looked flustered and was not showing the consistency of a decade ago, although showed good fight after struggling early on.
The other match saw a showdown of two former BDO World Champions, in which Jellie Klaasen beat out Christian Kist 3-1.

Auto enthusiasts should absolutely adore Australia. This bonkers island, aside from being filled with bugs, spiders, sharks and crocodiles, all of which are hellbent on killing you slowly, is home to two of the auto world’s greatest things – the V8 Supercars series, and the ute.
While Americans will be familiar with the ute thanks to cars like the Chevrolet El Camino and Ford Ranchero, the Australians have absolutely perfected this bizarre fusion of car and truck, with the result being the Holden HSV Maloo GTS. With a 577-horsepower, supercharged, 6.2-liter V8 playing a very metal version of Waltzing Matilda under the hood and the ability to tow 3,200 pounds, we like the Maloo GTS very, very much.
Chris Harris likes this particular Holden very, very much, too. He likes it so much that on his “holiday” to Australia, he took the time to drive “the most Australian vehicle of all,” complete with the sort of jabs we’d expect of a Brit driving an Aussie car (there is Vegemite involved).
Take a look at Harris and his take on this hilarious Holden.
