WITCH HUNT

A prison chaplain in Wisconsin was the subject of a literal witch hunt when two state politicians tried get her fired right after she was hired in 2001 – because the Rev. Jamyi Witch – her real name – is a pagan. The action, by Rep. Scott Walker, then the chair of the Assembly Committee on Corrections and Courts, and Rep. Michael Huebsch of (yes!) West Salem, was so intense that Witch reported getting death threats. The effort failed on freedom of religion grounds. But now, Witch has pleaded not guilty to supposedly setting up a fake hostage situation in her office at Oshkosh Correctional Institution. During the hostage crisis, she slipped the inmate drugs and, once he was asleep, opened the door for guards. Her alleged motive: to get herself and the prisoner transferred to a different prison. If convicted, Witch, now 52, faces up to 58-1/2 years in prison.

 A THOUGHT: Mastermind of a plot, or victim of a plot? You be the judge.

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
