Here is a picture of Rodney Martin and his wife Peggy. It is from a political hand-out or mailer from one of Martin's campaigns for city councilman in Porterville, California and also appeared on his now defunct website, rodneymartin.com. He ran for councilman in 2010 and 2012; I would think this is from 2010, judging from the looks of the children who he said were ages 4 to 11 in Jan. 2007.
I have cropped the children out of the picture so as not to be accused of "endangering their lives." In 2007, when Martin gave their names and ages to the reporter interviewing him, he was apparently not worried about putting out that personal information. (Politicians are required to display their families, after all.)
Why am I posting it? Because Martin won't ... and he easily can. The question of "why" he won't is legitimate, and one answer is that he wants to create more drama for himself and get people to come meet him at the Freedom Palooza festival in Pennsylvania in July or August. The fact that no sensible person would go to such trouble for such an insignificant result doesn't seem to enter his mind. Although, it is now starting to seep in, since he's begun making excuses for why no one will show up ... naturally blaming them for cowardice rather than himself for blatant showmanship.
However, after studying the photo, I realize this could also be a ploy to keep people from actually seeing his wife ... or a least critical, rather than friendly, people. Why? Because I detect that Peggy could very well be part Cherokee - how much part I don't know and don't really care. All I care about is Rodney Martin's defensive, childish lying.
Anyway, here is the long-awaited picture ...
