Now We have the “Anti” Father of the Year … Alfredo Martinez uses 7 Year old Son as Designated Driver

The sad part is, truth is stranger than fiction. First we reported about a  loving, caring mother who killed her baby with cocaine. Not to be out-done, Alfredo Martinez, 37, used his 7 year old son as a designated driver.

Alfredo Martinez

As reported at The Smoking Gun, “Martinez directed the boy to drive him home because he was too drunk to do it himself.”

While the Nevada man should be saluted for knowing that he was too drunk to get behind the wheel last night, he probably should not have tabbed his seven-year-old son as his designated driver. Martinez, 37, was arrested after Reno cops spotted his car weaving across lanes and stopping suddenly.

Not so Fast Democrats … Black Democrats in MD Cross Party Lines To Back Steele for Senate

The Democrats and the MSM may wish they never have boasted of “The Blue Wave” that Steelewas going to sweep up the Republican Party on November 7. Now less than two weeks before the midterm elections the Democratic Party and MSM are getting a bit nervous. The “Blue Wave” may turn into Democrats feeling blue.

In Maryland the US Senate Race is getting interesting. In a state where Democrats out-number Republicans 2 to 1, Republican candidate “Black Democrats Cross Party Lines To Back Steele For U.S. Senate.” Michael S. Steele is gaining momentum.  

A coalition of black Democratic political leaders from Prince George’s County led by former county executive Wayne K. Curry endorsed Republican Michael S. Steele’s bid for the U.S. Senate yesterday.

The support from Curry, five County Council members and others barely a week before Election Day reflects their continued disappointment that the Democratic Party has no African American candidates at the top of the ticket and a sense that the county is being ignored, officials said.

Take a good listen Democratic Party to those that you have taken for granted far too long and merely have an expectation that Blacks will vote for you, just because.

“They show us a pie, but we never get a slice,” said Major F. Riddick Jr., a former aide to then-Gov. Parris N. Glendening and a former county executive candidate. “We are here today to say we’ve waited and we’ve waited and we’re waiting no longer.”
