Lynching In Kentucky?

From the AP:

WASHINGTON — The FBI is investigating the hanging death of a U.S. Census worker near a Kentucky cemetery, and a law enforcement official told The Associated Press the word ‘fed” was scrawled on the dead man’s chest.

The body of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and occasional teacher, was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky. The Census has suspended door-to-door interviews in rural Clay County, where the body was found, pending the outcome of the investigation.

Now, it’s not even clear yet whether this was murder or suicide. We can’t tell if the motivations came from Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, the money in Aunt Maribelle’s attic, or what.

More as this develops.

    Teabaggers killed the guy. It is so very obvious. Glenn Beck will sleep better tonight, won't he? Send in the FBI and Steven Segall. And also send in the ACLU, Al Sharpton, and everybody at NPR. Yes, this is serious. Maybe Al Sharpon won't be needed. But we should welcome any help from him. Or Jesse Jackson. Or Geraldo.

    Actually, this is rather serious.

    Linking Glenn Beck to this heinous act is irresponsible. Love him or hate him (and yes, Matt…we know you hate him my friend), I'm quite sure Beck isn't thrilled that a man lost his life in this situation.

    jwrobnett, this has nothing to do with Glenn Beck and everything to do with Teh Stupid™ and Teh Wacky™ that spew from his mouth. And I'm not blaming it on beck — yet. Just establishing the chain of evidence.

    Have you ever read the Adkisson manifesto?
