Texas Attorney Charged With Egging Judge’s Car Over Coronavirus Stay-at-home Orders 

An attorney and district judge candidate is facing criminal mischief charges for egging a judge’s car over coronavirus stay-at-home orders in the town of Conroe, Texas.

The Conroe Police Department charged Eric Yollick, who is running for district judge in Monroe County, with throwing an egg at current Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough’s car on March 27.

Yollick admitting to egging the car and wrote on Facebook that he was making a statement about Keough’s “illegal and unconstitutional” stay-at-home order.

“My action two months ago was a lighthearted protest between friends (me and County Judge Keough). Unfortunately, Keough’s unconstitutional actions have touched — and harmed — every citizen in Montgomery County, particularly family members who lost their jobs, businesses which have lost their futures, and parents and children facing economic devastation foisted upon us by Keough and his government cronies,” Yollick wrote.

Yollick previously made waves in the race for Texas’ 457th District Court seat when he was caught on video removing door hangers from other candidates from people’s front doors and replacing them with his own.



Switched at Birth… 80 Years Ago!

Two men who believe they were switched at birth nearly 80 years ago are suing a Roman Catholic diocese in West Virginia, alleging negligence and breach of duty by the hospital where they were born. John William Carr III and Jackie Lee Spencer were born Aug. 29, 1942, at St. Joseph Hospital in Buckhannon. The lawsuit against the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston says staffers at the diocese-run hospital sent them home with the wrong families. The switch was discovered last year when DNA tests showed Carr and Spencer had no genetic matches with the families that raised them but did match the other’s family. Spencer spent more than 50 years searching for the man listed on his birth certificate as his father, he says in the lawsuit. He had been told the man abandoned his mother prior to his birth. After finding relatives of the man, Spencer took a DNA test to see if he was related and discovered he was not, triggering the series of events that led to the men uncovering the alleged mix-up. Carr, Spencer, and their families have suffered a “lifetime of consequences” from the switch, they say in the lawsuit. Spencer, now in his twilight years, never got to know many of his family members. “He feels as though most of his family died all at once. He grieves for the loss of the life he was supposed to have, while reconciling those feeling with the love and gratitude he feels for the family he has known his whole life,” according to the suit. Carr said he looks different from the family that raised him and always felt out of place. The men have not specified any damages they are looking for. (Newser)



An Australian Man’s Clever COVID-19 Business Plan Backfires

Newsweek reported that one man had a team of people buying essential items at a Drakes supermarket once COVID-19 became a worldwide pandemic. He shockingly stockpiled $10,000 worth of toilet paper and hand sanitizer with the idea of flipping the items for a massive profit on eBay.

However, once eBay and other companies began realizing that sellers were trying to engage in price gouging, they quickly put a stop to it. So with a ton of capital invested on the products, the toilet paper hoarder tried to get a refund. Only John-Paul Drake, the director of Drakes Supermarkets in Australia, wasn’t going to put up with it.

“I had my first customer yesterday who said he wanted to get a refund on 150 packets of 32-pack toilet paper and 150 units of one-liter [hand] sanitizer,” said John-Paul Drake, director of Drakes Supermarkets in Australia. “I told him that,” Drake said, showing his middle finger to the camera. Bless.

While refusing the refund isn’t a normal form of good customer service, the heroic act proved that there are still good people left in the world looking out for others.

The issue isn’t just native to Australia. Two Tennessee brothers dropped a ton of money on thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer and medical masks with the intent of reselling. That plan got squashed and they are being investigated by the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office.

While there are plenty of people trying to tag advantage of others during the coronavirus pandemic, luckily there are also heroes like the grocery store clerk who are making those bad people pay.
