You know what they say about March weather? It comes "in like a lion and out like a lamb."
The same apparently holds true for ass clowns, as this first week of March saw dozens of folks who roared their way into the headlines due to their own dubious behavior. Below are some of the better examples.
You know the rules, check out the following candidates and then cast your vote for who you think is the biggest ass clown of the week. And the nominees...
1. Patrice Johnson: The Illinois exotic dancer who Caseyville police
found hiding in a closet this week after allegedly leaving her
three-year-old daughter to wander a hotel alone while she worked a
nearby strip club. Oh, and police also accuse her of doing drugs and allegedly telling them that she planned a
threesome with the father of her daughter and another family member.
Chris Koster: The Missouri attorney general is under fire for
attempting to overturn municipals laws restricting agriculture zoning. Koster's actions could allow corporate hog farms and other foul-smelling mega-farms to locate closer and closer
to residential districts.
Burkemper: A St. Louis financial advisor was accused this week of illegally operating an investment scheme in Russia that was suppose to purchase vodka
kiosks in Moscow and St. Petersburg but instead cost his investors nearly $2 million.
