Gehrke: I’m with you Todd Weiler, we deserve more questions about the murder of Sean Hannity

First Published      Last Updated May 31 2017 12:22 pm

Are you like me? Don't you think it's about time that we get to the bottom of the slaying of Sean Hannity?

I understand that some believe Mr. Hannity's death was accidental, the result of a kinky bondage sex party that went a little too far. But if that is the case, why was the Fox News host dressed as a Teletubby? And who is this Hannity-look-alike who replaced him and has been spouting the preposterous, unsubstantiated speculation about the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich?

We deserve answers, or at the very least more questions, and I'm confident state Sen. Todd Weiler will back me up on that point.

The Davis County Republican was in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday listening to Newt Gingrich, the former House Speaker/Presidential candidate/novelist discussing America's opioid epidemic when Weiler's got sucked into the latest Hannity-fueled nonsense about the Rich slaying.

In case you missed it, Rich was a 27-year-old staffer at the Democratic National Committee who was shot and killed on his way home last summer in what Washington police are calling a botched robbery.

Monday night, Weiler wondered aloud via Twitter about the Seth Rich conspiracy nonsense:

"I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but I'd be interested to find more about the death of Seth Rich."

Then it was during Gingrich's drug talk Tuesday morning — Gingrich was talking about drugs and not, we have to guess, on drugs when he was talking — that Weiler got called out for his Twitter speculation.

"If Seth Rich was murdered in a robbery gone wrong, why was his wallet, watch, and phone left behind?" Weiler said after being called out for feeding the conspiracy trolls.

Then followed it up with:

"??? Seth Rich:

1. If he was killed in a robbery, why wasn't he robbed?

2. If he was killed by a stray bullet, why was he shot twice?"

The insinuation, which has been fueled by right-wing media is that Rich was murdered by Democratic thugs for leaking DNC documents to Wikileaks. This was based on speculation from a third-rate private investigator who almost immediately recanted his story and said he was given the information by a Fox News reporter.

The retraction meant there was literally no evidence to support the story and Rich's family pleaded with the disgusting sex-freak Hannity, or his robot replacement, to drop the story, but Hannity kept going after it like he would Tinky Winky at a furry convention.

Weiler kept going at it too.

"And why was Seth Rich walking in a neighborhood 30 minutes away from his home — at 4:20 am?" Weiler asked as he was taking fire for regurgitating the nonsense.

"Just honest questions," he tweeted. "I'm not in with the conspiracy."
