David Alcon, 39, a Democratic candidate for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District, has been arrested for stalking. And this is not his first felony arrest for crimes against women; in 2007, Alcon was convicted of aggravated stalking and trespassing and sentenced to three years’ probation.
Stalking is, at times, hard to prove, and each state has specific laws with varying degrees of severity from a misdemeanor to a felony. In New Mexico, Alcon committed a 4th-degree felony for breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house and leaving love notes on her vehicle. The creep went so far as to leave rose petals on her porch the day of his trial. That should’ve been the first clue.
Apparently, the court ordered rehabilitation didn’t stick, and a Santa Fe judge last week signed a warrant to fetch Alcon after a woman complained of threatening and unwanted advances:
“A criminal complaint filed by Santa Fe police said Alcon’s texts told the woman he was watching her, wanted to have children with her, and contained a picture of his genitals. According to the complaint, the woman stated “multiple times in the text messages that she did not want anything to do with Alcon, and she repeatedly told him to leave her alone.”
Well, that’s not creepy at all.
The Land of Enchantment Takes No Prisoners
In an almost immediate response, both New Mexico’s state party leaders were swift to denounce Alcon’s alleged crimes referencing the current climate of sexual assault victims coming forward to condemn the publicly famous, er, infamous. Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Dustin Hoffman set off a domino effect not seen since Senator McCarthy went after the commies in Hollywood in 1950. Here’s a link for those that need a refresher on McCarthyism.
The New Mexico Republican Party edged out their counterparts in spouting outrage by releasing this statement:
“On Monday, the Republican Party of New Mexico issued a news release calling for U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, D-N.M., who chairs the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, to withhold support from Alcon in his congressional bid and referring to national sex scandals.
“After national Democrats’ failure to adequately address the fallout from Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations,” the release said, “Ben Ray Lujan can’t remain silent about this gross misconduct in his own backyard.”
I’m not sure what the Democratic Party has to do to denounce Weinstein any further, but maybe I missed something with the avalanche of allegations.
To give credit where it’s due, the New Mexico Democratic Party followed with their assessment and call to action regarding the skeevy Alcon:
“Meredith Kelly, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, responded in a statement emailed to The New Mexican.
“This individual’s alleged behavior is despicable and serious, and he is not fit to run for office in New Mexico or anywhere else,” Kelly said. “The DCCC has not had any interaction with him, and in light of these allegations, neither Chairman Lujan nor the DCCC will support his candidacy.”
Bravo, New Mexico Democrats, and Republicans, for getting ahead of this potential national disaster. See boys and girls; you can work together when it suits.
The Futile Attempt to Deflect
Why does this Alcon rate an article for his criminal behavior? He is, after all, only a Congressional hopeful. Well, so is Judge Roy Moore, also a CANDIDATE for Senate in Alabama; and he hasn’t been convicted of anything thus far. But have any of the network or cable news stations covered the Alcon story? Here is an accounting of the disparaging difference in the media accounts:
“According to a search of the television database TV Eyes, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC have given zero on-air coverage to Alcon’s arrest. The networks have also not published any stories about Alcon’s scandal on their websites in the past week.
Meanwhile, ABC, CBS, and NBC spent more than 79 minutes talking about Roy Moore between November 9 and November 13.”
That’s the obscene rub; the obvious collusion between the Left and the media.
I’m not espousing that the media should not cover Judge Roy Moore’s alleged despicable behavior, but a level playing field with their agenda and the whole truth needs its own independent task force. Politicians and entertainers appear to run neck and neck in outed sexual deviant behavior.
The casting couch in LA is as iconic a symbol as the Hollywood sign, and accessing attention from those deemed powerful, in the Halls on the Hill or the Hills in Hollywood, is an addiction that boggles the mind. And this addiction is becoming a national embarrassment of epic proportions.
