[Video Link] KHOU TV: "A 45-year-old Texas man is suing an arch-conservative Republican state lawmaker [Patricia Harless] and her husband over what he calls months of attacks with a Taser while working for them that left him paranoid in his private life."
At 1:47 check out the sociopathic response from Fred Fincher Motors' co-owner Sam Harless, who is accused of providing the stun gun and videotaping the attacks. I'm not sure why this is just a civil suit and not a criminal matter. (Via Dangerous Minds)
