Best Politician in Need of a Slap Upside the Head

Frank Conaway Jr.

Literally slapping state Del. Frank Conaway Jr. (D-40th District) upside the head probably isn’t a good idea. As a legislator who’d like to allow property owners to shoot trespassers on sight, no questions asked, and with impunity, he just might react by popping a cap in you. Or maybe he’d have his campaign chairman, a drug convict with a history of gun charges, take a shot at you. Or he might attack you with a shillelagh, the Irish club that he proposed as the state’s official walking stick. All of which—along with the facts that Conaway Jr., who has a history of domestic violence against his ex-wife, helped block a bill to help domestic-violence victims, and clogs up the legislative process with an annual flood of strange, go-nowhere bills—adds up to Conaway Jr. deserving a figurative—repeat, figurative—slap upside the head on his way out the General Assembly door, should the 40th District voters be so kind.
