We've written before about the blood-curdling activities of the Kennedy family in cozying up to Venezuelan madman Hugo Chavez. Well, it turns out that they're not the only ones under the covers with him. The Times of London now reports that London Mayor "Red" Ken Livingstone (pictured) is "embroiled in fresh controversy after allegations that his most senior aides have been members of a Trotskyite faction that plotted to turn London into a 'socialist city state.'" Now seeking reelection, it's been revealed that "Livingstone also faced claims that his aides breached the Greater London Authority's codes of conduct by engaging in election fundraising while continuing to draw public salaries" and various other corrupt misdeeds. But perhaps worst of all is that, just like the Kennedy clan, Livingstone has made a deal with Chavez which "provides cheap fuel for London buses in return for Livingstone sending a team of consultants to South America to advise on recycling and public transport."
It seems that birds of a left-wing fanatic feather flock together.
Just in case you've forgotten who Chavez is, Pajamas Media provides a timely reminder: "Judge Monica Fernandez, a Venezuelan human rights advocate, was shot by on January 4 in what police ruled a botched car robbery. The night before the attack, she was branded an enemy of the state, a coup-plotter, and a fascist on a state television show which condemns those who dare to oppose the government's actions. Coincidence? Thor Halvorssen doesn't think so." Click through to gaze upon the horror.
And that's not all. He's a drug addict, too.
