Between Rand Paul, Vaughn Ward and this guy do the words, "self-destruct," come to mind? Republican Tim D'Annunzio, who is running for congress in North Carolina's eighth district, is being attacked as "unfit for public office at any level" by his own political party. Tom Fetzer, who chairs the North Carolina GOP, came out swinging at D'Annunzio over the weekend as the congressional hopeful battles Harold Johnson for the Republican nomination ahead of a June 22 runoff election. "By my personal observation of his behavior, and by acquaintance with his record and background, I consider Mr. D'Annunzio unfit for public office at any level," Fetzer explained to the Charlotte Observer. "What he could do to the party as our nominee is secondary in my view to what he could do to the country if he got elected. If he got elected, for crying out loud, that would be a disaster." Court documents portray D'Annunzio as "a self-described religious zealot" who once called the U.S. government the Antichrist and told his ex-wife that he'd found the Ark of the Covenant. Republican Congressional Candidate Deemed 'Unfit For Public Office' By His Own Party Earlier this year, D'Annunzio raised eyebrows when his campaign held a "machine gun social" fundraiser at which a $25 contribution bought supporters a barbecue dinner and a semi-automatic machine gun magazine for use at Jim's Guns Indoor Shooting Range in Fayetteville, NC. And on yeah, he won the support of The N.C. Tea Party.
