A man we can only presume to be Adam Sharp.
The people have spoken. By the most convincing margin ever in Ass Clown of the Week voting, this week's title goes to Adam Sharp who came away with an astonishing 78 percent of the vote.

So who is Sharp and why do so many folks consider him an ass hat of the nth degree?

Sharp is the conservative blogger behind Sharp-Elbows.net who shoved a video camera in the face of Fox 2 reporter Charles Jaco while the latter covered a health-care rally downtown. Sharp later pressed charges when Jaco allegedly bumped into him. You can see a video of the incident -- and hear Sharp's definition of "tea bagging" -- here

Matt Bartle
This might make it difficult for me to secure that interview with state senator Matt Bartle (R - Kansas City), but what can I say?

The people have spoken, and they've elected Bartle as Daily RFT's "Ass Clown of the Week."

Bartle won the the vote for his bill -- approved by the Senate last week -- that would outlaw nudity in Missouri strip clubs and impose other regulations such as banning alcohol consumption and curtailing operating hours.

This week's clowns show their stripes.
With a few exceptions, ordinary folks in and around St. Louis refrained from outrageous acts of jackassery this week. Congratulations.

See the candidates and elect your favorite after the jump. 'Cause as you know: It's your doodie to vote for Ass Clown!

Ass Clowns take to the road this week.
It's that time again. Time to vote for this week's newsmaker whose behavior you think was the most reprehensible/shameful. 

And the nominees...

1. David Yuhas: The Colorado man who's floating plans to build a cannabis-supported confederacy in St. Louis.

2. Zachary Walck: The seventeen-year-old arrested last week for shooting a Jefferson County sheriff's deputy. Walck was wanted for questioning in the theft of some 40 guns. Police found him holed up in a storage shed, and Walck didn't surrender without a fight.

3. St. Louis Motorsports' employee: An auto dealer for an exotic car shop in Chesterfield was arrested this week after posting YouTube videos showing him test driving vehicles -- at speeds reaching 150 m.p.h. -- on St. Louis roadways.

4. Ike Skelton: Depending on your viewpoint, perhaps the Missouri Congressman may be an Ass Clown hero -- not zero. Still the powerful chair of the House Armed Services Committee took flack this week for his opposition to changing the military's position on homosexuals serving openly in the military.

Vote after the jump!

James O'Keefe learns that pimpin' ain't easy.
It keeps getting worse for political activist (and pride of the St. Louis Tea Party) James O'Keefe

Last week he was arrested for illegally attempting to access the phone lines of Lousiana Senator Mary Landrieu. Over the weekend Daily RFT voters elected him Ass Clown of the Week. Now today, Salon has a scathing article linking O'Keefe to white nationalists.

Yeah, we know. Hard to believe that a man who dressed himself as a pimp in order to target the predominately African-American organization ACORN would stoop so low.

Cynthia Tiemann: Crime and gamblin' rarely pay.
A former Daily RFT "Ass Clown of the Week" contestant has been sentenced for taking out student loans in her daughters' names to support her gambling addiction.

Cynthia Tiemann, 50, of St. Peters mother was sentenced to five years in prison yesterday. In September Tiemann pleaded guilty to forging the signature of her 72-year-old mother as a co-signer of the loans made out to Tiemann's two college-aged daughters.

Instead of using the loans for their intended purpose, Tiemann used the money for gambling. All told she blew $140,000 on her habit.

On the bright side, her actions did serve to educate her children.

You gotta be an "ass" to wear suspenders. Don't ya, James?
James O'Keefe, the St. Louis Tea Party hero and the man behind last year's ACORN videos, has won Daily RFT's coveted Ass Clown of the Week award.

Thirty-eight percent of Daily RFT readers considered O'Keefe worthy of the Ass Clown title after he was arrested last week for masquerading as a utility worker in an attempt to illegally access the phone lines of a Senator Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana).

On Friday, O'Keefe released a statement in his defense, referring to himself as an "investigative journalist" and condemning the "journalistic malpractice" surrounding the media coverage of his arrest.

Yes, when it comes to expelling hot air, O'Queef, err O'Keefe, is a special breed indeed.

Per Mr. O'Keefe:
