From Jackson Baker's masterful "Jake Ford's Attacks on Family: Then and Now":
The chronology of arrests, however, shows that at least one of them, for DUI, occurred in 1994, well after his father’s acquittal of all charges during the second of his two trials. And another charge admitted to Thursday by Jake Ford, assault against a former girl friend, occurred at some unspecified point in the ‘90s.
How can any woman fathom voting for Jake Ford at this point? Getting in a bar fight would be one thing... I could probably overlook that. But a former girlfriend? Come on...
But here's the Jake Ford money quote:
“I’m the one who inherited my father’s political sense, my brother Isaac is the one who got the business sense, and all Harold got was the name.”
Isaac is a hothead. Jake Ford has no political sense. While I may disagree with his brother much of the time, I wouldn't trade one of Harold Jr's fingernail clippings for a pile of Isaacs and Jakes.
His uncle has been indicted for taking bribes. His brother Isaac committed voter fraud. But Jake Ford has become the family's greatest disgrace.
