You can’t make this sh*t up.
A man who is currently sitting in a jail cell after being charged with killing his wife just won a local GOP primary in Indiana and will now be on the November ballot for his local school board.
40-year-old Andrew Wilhoite is one of three Republicans running for the Clinton Township Board. In March, he was arrested and charged with murdering his wife, Elizabeth Wilhoite. But that didn’t stop voters from advancing him in their local election this week.

According to the Indy Star, people charged with felonies are still eligible to run for local office in Indiana. They are only ineligible if convicted.
“Under our legal system, every person is innocent until proven guilty,” Brad King, co-director of the Indiana Election Division, tells the newspaper. “If a candidate is ultimately convicted, then depending upon the timing of that conviction, the person can be replaced on the ballot by the political party that has a vacancy.”

Wilhoite is accused of killing his wife, who was undergoing chemotherapy at the time, a week after Easter by hitting her in the head with a concrete flower pot and throwing her body off a bridge and into a creek not far from the couple’s home, where they lived with their three children.
“During the course of a domestic dispute, [then] 39-year-old Andrew N. Wilhoite, Elizabeth’s husband, had allegedly struck her in the head with a blunt object causing her to lose consciousness,” police said in a statement, adding: “He then placed her into a vehicle and drove to a nearby creek where he dumped her body.”
Court documents show that Wilhoite initially lied to detectives before eventually admitting to killing his wife during an argument about his extramarital affair, which happened while she was being treated for cancer.
Gotta love those good, old-fashioned Republican family values!
He looks like a psycho.
Sadly, you cannot tell a “psycho” by there looks. He looks like a fairly typical middle aged, middle American suburban guy.
Den he actually looks what I call a bit “off-white.” As in mostly white but with a touch of American Indian or something. Or he could just be another deranged inbred. They don’t just make them in the south you know! But whatever its genetics or politics may be, I hope the creature suffers a painful execution.
Good Lord, you are a witless twit! Yes I share the hope this fellow is punished. But it is YOUR kind of people who voted for him in the primary and would vote for him in the general election.
Just go away! Nobody wants racist, hetero trolls like you here. Though your posts are a good demonstration of the intellectual failing and mental illness that is currently passing itself off as “conservatism”. UGH!
@Den no one I know would vote for this sicko. And most people I know are conservatives. But you would still call us all ‘racists’ I’m sure
I’m kind of surprised that BennyTheHill has not already been here to defend this guy and the GOP in general. After all, to folks like him, killing your wife, especially if she is a burden or bother is more acceptable than being a “groomer” because you mention unconventional families or gender role non-conformity to kids, or acknowledge their questions about it.
I’m sure this candidate is “pro-life”, and would have waited to kill her had she been “with child”.
@Den, BennyTheHill Copy & Paste Queen has a new screenname. Look out for foxtrot.charly.uniform.kilo or the other tired old used screenname GaysForTrump.
Should read GayForTrump, only one moron.
Wow. This is a lot.
Yet another PROUD Hoosier Moment…..right up there with Mike Pence, Mike Braun, and now this Turd
You left out Senaturd Young? He’s a horrible person too. Voted to find a psychotic traitor innocent of all charges. He shouldn’t be in Office either. And you should see most of the other Republicans from Inbrediana. That Congresswoman Spartz is a bonafide KLAN EXTREMIST.
Excuse me, um, um, excuse me, it’s Czar Spence.
1) Note this was a SCHOOL BOARD election. Oh, the children…
2) This guy HAS children.
3) Voters should pay more attention to their local elections. All politics is local.
4) Wilhoite was probably running unopposed. We need more good people to do civic duty.
I thought Indiana wasn’t a toothless uneducated cousin-lovin’ state but then again the dumb fake-christian former VP was 50th Governor, my bad
Indiana is always down there with Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Louisiana in the Bottom Feeding 5.
Add the much higher cost of living and unbearable winters, and Indiana is what Leftists think the south is
Another example of Republican family values.
For the Republican party now, being cruel, or abusing women, seems to be a plus for it’s base.
this just underscores minimum standards are required for public office, like morals and being ethical.
So according to the GOP in Indiana, you will not be able to get an abortion if the SCOTUS liars who said Row vs Wade was set law during their congressional senate interviews, because there is a trigger law waiting to go into effect. However, it is clearly okay to elect an admitted murderer to the state Congress. This is totally ass-backwards but totally expected by most of Indiana’s hypocritical and supposedly Christian citizens.
He will be in good company if he wins. The GOF (Grand Old Failed) party is littered with his kind.
Why is this so hard to believe? I mean seriously they even have been putting rapists on the supreme court!
I keep saying there needs to be requirements and testing and background checks done on anyone that wants to run for office. Same with voting. All voters should be required to take a mental health test and an intelligence test before being allowed to vote. Weed out the crazies and nutjobs.
I thought the GQP was pro life?
We elected a felon Mayor and guess what? He runs the city like you would expect a felon to run any entity.
Is anyone really surprised? Remember when Trump said he could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and not lose any voters? And then he won the election.
So basically the repukelicans have sunk so low that even accused criminals can run for office and be accepted. I place ALL the blame on Trump for corrupting our entire democratic system.
people are morons. a state that would rather vote for a murderer than anyone from the LGBT community. Typical of republicans.
Now days people are (in the words of Bugs Bunny) …. “ultra-morooons”!
THE GOP sticks together they are all criminals
