Report: Alleged cop-killer wanted Huntsman for president

An alleged cop-killer on the loose is, believe it or not, a Jon Huntsman fan.

A man-hunt continues in California for former Los Angeles Police Department's Jordan Dorner, who is suspected of carrying out a vendetta to kill people who he believed wronged him. Several news outlets have quoted from an 11-page manifesto by Dorner where he attempts to justify his actions.

And, well, talk a little politics.

"Before you start with your argument that you believe I would vote for Obama because he has the same skin color as me, f--- you," Dorner, who is black, reportedly wrote. "I didn't vote in this last election as my choice of candidate, John Huntsman, didn't win the primary candidacy for his party."

Dorner also goes after Mitt Romney, and specifically his son, Tagg, who said during the presidential campaign that he wanted to take a swing at President Barack Obama.

"Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions," Dorner writes. "No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President."

And, he adds, "Romney, stop being a sore loser."

Dorner has killed three people, including the daughter of a police chief, and has made threats to several others.
