What does it have to do with anything? Nothing, unless the point is to put the name “John Wayne Gacy” in the same headline as the name of a political opponent. So there you go. Does that mean Jimmy Carter supported the rape and murder of dozens of young men? Hey, you didn’t hear it from me.
By the way, where was Gacy born? Where did he go on his killing spree? Where’s the house with all the bodies in the basement? That’s right: Chicago. (You might’ve heard of the place. A government employee named Barry calls it home.) Between those two events, Gacy moved to Waterloo in his 20s and lived there for a year before his first arrest. When he got out of jail, he moved back to Chicago. So now he’s ”from” the place he lived for one year of his adult life. Hey, all’s fair when it’s time to play Get the Republican.
Next up, these brilliant historians will crowdsource the mystery of why John Wayne’s parents named him after a serial killer.
