Former Republican Candidate Busted For Making Threats..

    ….in the state of Indiana. Does it ever stop with those wingnuts dingbats?


    Allen ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for Indiana's 4th Congressional District seat in 2010, winning just 3 percent of the vote. The seat that was vacated by U.S. Rep. Steve Buyer was eventually won by new U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita.

    It appears that Cheryl Allen , from Martinsville was busted on Saturday for making threats against some judges and a few other individuals by way of her Facebook account.

    Steve Sonnega,the prosecutor from Morgan County was also among those targeted with the threats,and,after last weeks killings in Tucson it was decided to take action against this woman very quickly.

    Allen had once filed a discrimination lawsuit which was dismissed by a judge,so it appears that she went into  “stupid mode” and began making threats to some 4 judges and other public officials.

   Allen had criticized the courts' handling of her discrimination case during her campaign last year and suggested the system needed a major overhaul, according to The Reporter-Times. In a Facebook post on Jan. 8, the newspaper said she wrote: "What do you need to have done to get all the current government out of office? That is why we should own guns to go into court to get my right to trial back."

    Allen was being held on $100,000 bond and she will be going through a mental evaluation.  READ MORE
