Melvin Sembler donated over $100,000 to "Smart Colorado" in an effort to keep marijuana illegal in Colorado.

 

"But the real icon of drug policy in Romney’s campaign, deeply involved to this day, is Melvin Sembler, a Florida strip-mall magnate who was a national fundraising chair for Romney in 2008 and is again a Florida State Co-Chair for Romney’s finance committee. Mel Sembler’s name is most likely to strike fear into the hearts of anyone involved in teen drug rehabs. Sembler and his wife, Betty, founded a chain of such institutions under the name Straight, Inc., which at its peak in the ‘80s had 12 clinics in nine states and a track record of extreme abuse.

 

In one of many stories from Straight that have been exposed, a teenage girl testified to being compelled into the program after being caught with an airline bottle of liquor given to her by a friend, and then beaten, raped, locked in a janitor’s closet in pants soiled by urine, feces, and menstrual blood.."

 

Newton, who held a PhD in public administration from an unaccredited institution, was chosen by the Semblers to be their national clinical director. He has had to pay out over $12 million in damages to his victims, who he has thrown against walls, held against their will, kidnapped, restrained in leg irons, forced into servitude, and otherwise abused."

I wonder if he'll wear his magic underpants while deporting any people who look like they're related to his hired help.  Will he sip some caffeine-free cola while cutting Medicare?  Will he quote Joseph Smith when he ships more jobs overseas to make it easier on his private equity buddies?

 @BackOffImStarving Aren't they sacred underpants?  I'm googling "mormon underpants" right now!  mormontopics.org says: "Mormons wear [sacred under-] garments as a reminder of sacred promises" -- so Mormon underwear is sort of like Orthodox icons, except that it's rubbing around the nether regions instead of sitting on an altar.  Wikipedia has more information than most will want to know about the subject -- if you blow your nose on temple garments in Salt Lake City, it may be considered hate-speech.
