Boner (Round One) for June 20th, 2017

Boner Candidate #1: UTAH REPUBLICANS…THIS IS YOUR GUY!

The Republican nominated by delegates for the special-election primary ballot to replace retiring Rep. Jason Chaffetz once posted a doctored photo on his blog to show an image of him spanking KSL radio host Doug Wright. “Take that, you little elitist curmudgeon,” says the caption under the photo of Chris Herrod putting Wright on his knee and giving him a good whack.
