Charles “Chazz” Redd is running for the District 7 seat of the Dallas City Council. Judging by his MySpace page, he’s a fan of Diana Ross. So far, so good. But problems arise for the candidate when you visit his friend Quanah’s MySpace page, specifically the portion where she posted some pics from New Year’s Eve. I suspect these pics will be taken down shortly, so I’ve provided a screen grab of my favorite. I’m sure Trey can tell us in the comments what Redd is packing. To my eye, though, they look like handguns.
I’m sure every voter in District 7 will share my outrage and bafflement about this. I mean, these people are still using MySpace?!
Update: Dave Levinthal at the DMN got an explanation from Redd. He said he’d been hunting quail and deer and had gotten some blood on his shirt, which is why he removed it for the photograph. Then, apparently realizing that not many people hunt quail and deer together — with handguns — he called Levinthal back and changed his story. This is one for the pantheon.
