Did you hear about that candidate stalking young women? No… the other one

So we have a candidate for a position in Washington D.C. accused of stalking and harassing young women. You’re probably thinking we’re off on yet another story about Roy Moore, right? Not this time. The latest politician to earn such a reputation is from considerably further out west. In New Mexico, David Alcon is running for Congress, hoping to represent the Second District. His campaign hit a bit of a snag recently, however, when he was arrested for stalking a woman and engaging in threatening, sexually aggressive behavior. Oh, and just in case you were wondering… he’s a Democrat. (Free Beacon)

A Democrat running for Congress in New Mexico’s second district was found and arrested at an apartment complex in Albuquerque on Friday, nearly two weeks after an arrest warrant was issued for him.

David Alcon is now behind bars after a woman accused him of stalking her, according to local station KRQE News 13.

The woman, who attended a Halloween party at a hotel in Santa Fe on Oct. 28, said she started receiving persistent text messages from Alcon—one with a picture of his genitals, some suggesting that he was watching her, and others professing his love for her.

The woman said later that night he texted her that he was outside her apartment.

Another odd aspect of the story is that police issued a warrant for his arrest the day before Halloween. But Alcon refused to turn himself in, leading to the arrest. All this is enough to terminate most political campaigns, but you may find yourself wondering how he ever got on the primary ballot in the first place because this isn’t his first run-in with the law for such alleged offenses. In 2009 he was convicted of stalking and trespassing following complaints filed by his ex.

Early in the morning on the first day of his trial in September for allegedly stalking his ex-girlfriend, David Lee Alcon sprinkled rose petals on the woman’s front porch.

“It was just unbelievable to me, David, that on the eve of trial you were violating my court order knowing I had you on (global positioning system) and would know what you’d be doing,” state District Judge Michael Vigil said Friday before sentencing Alcon. “That is creepy. That is scary for a person. You would not go away. Violence takes a lot of different forms. (What you did) was a form of violence to the victim.”

A Santa Fe County jury convicted Alcon, 30, of aggravated stalking and trespassing.

There’s no telling how far Alcon might have made it in his congressional bid, particularly when you consider that he’s running in a very crowded primary field. But as the son of a former Congressman and a political consultant with plenty of contacts, it’s not unreasonable to think that he had a chance. Plus, after all, these latest charges are still “alleged” at this point. Maybe he’ll stay in the race and fight them.

If so, I look forward to the calls from Democrats across the nation for him to “step aside.” If nominated, he should drop out. If elected he should not be seated. If seated he should be expelled from Congress. That’s basically how the drill goes, right? After all, the guy is a convicted stalker and now there are fresh allegations being brought against him. In 2017 we default to believing the accuser. Isn’t that the new rule?

We’ll all wait right here while the rest of you work on that.

He’s one of half a dozen people declared for the Democrat primary. Let him win that and become the candidate and then there will be an equivalency with Moore.
