With the elections looming ever nearer, we go to the Bozo Politicians file for today’s report. And in case you’re wondering, yes, it is a rather thick file. From Oshkosh, Wisconsin comes the story of bozo student activist Gregory Burns who was running for the state legislature on a "privacy" platform, demanding stronger laws to protect privacy on the internet. Sounds like our bozo didn’t practice what he preached, however. He was arrested for stealing another man’s identity and taking more than $2000 from his bank account. He was caught after a teller at the bank where the thefts took place saw him campaigning on a local public affairs television program.
