Well, that’s new.

Mayor Melvin Carter has asked David Martinez to immediately drop out of the city council race after the Ward 4 candidate’s recent behavior made headlines and stirred controversy.
In a span of three days earlier this month, Martinez was accused of domestic abuse, ejected and banned from Target Field and arrested and banned from St. Paul public libraries. And on Saturday, it appears Martinez posted a topless photo of his estranged wife on his campaign website in response to being served a restraining order.
The website appeared to have been suspended by WordPress late Sunday. The site now says “martinezward4.wordpress.com is no longer available. This blog has been archived or suspended in accordance with our Terms of Service.”
Meanwhile, Carter’s request for Martinez to leave the council race remains unanswered. Martinez did not return calls.
Apparently, Martinez posted the picture in response to receiving a restraining order from his wife’s attorney.
Which of course is always the appropriate response, right?
And they say we have seen everything in American politics.
By the way, I just want to point out that this guy is a Democrat, so no not every crazy thing that happens in politics is due to the Republicans.
Just most of them.
