ALSO NOMINATED!

COWARDLY POLITICIANS!

Anthony Weiner only found the “Courage” to confront his “Sexting” addiction after the Feds found thousands of emails on his computer belonging to his wife and her Boss, a key factor in the Presidential race. Paul Ryan cowardly abandoned the issue of Immigration Reform, resulting in a public backlash that determined the outcome of the Presidential race.

COWARDS IN SPORTS! 

Ryan Lotche became the “Ugly American” when he filed a false report with the local Police at the International Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.  Baylor President Kenneth Starr, whose entire legal career has focused on Prosecuting or Defending men accused of sexual abuses, failed to adequately respond to serious allegations of sexual offenses by athletes at his University.

 CORPORATE COWARDS!

Over 5,000 employees of Wells Fargo bank fraudulently opened over 2 million bank accounts or credit cards for Wells Fargo customers without their knowledge or consent. In Ohio, McDonalds replaced 70 American workers with HB-1 immigrants, a key issue during the Presidential campaign.

COWARDS IN HOLLYWOOD!

muhammad5.jpg
Islamic terrorist John Muhammad, 2002 Profile in Cowardice Nominee
The terrorist attacks of 9/11 inspired convert to Islam John Mohammad and his adopted son/gay lover Malik Malvo to go on a murderous rampage, shooting in the back 10 innocent Americans.  Malvo's prior detention and release as an illegal alien was another example of the ease by which terrorists pass into the USA.  At right is Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, charged in 2002 for the murder of an NYPD cop, about whom he conveniently forgot to disclose to the Feds when he aggreed to 'rat' on Gambino Godfather John Gotti.

Scott Peterson, 2003 Profile in Cowardice
Scott Peterson and Mark Hacking, who, within a year of each other, murdered their pregnant wife as she lay sleeping.  Peterson's criminal lawyer, Mark Geragos, who received the Chappaquiddick Society's 'Lifetime Achievement Award' in 2004, floated a 'trial balloon' with the Media in which he claimed Peterson's wife was murdered by a Satanic cult.  That theory didn't fly and Peterson is now on Death Row in California.

MURDER AND THE MEDIA!

1996 Profile in Cowardice O. J. Simpson
O. J. Simpson may have beaten his murder rap, but a Civil suit jury later found him financially responsible for the murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, and a jury in Las Vegas convicted Simpson on charges incluing kidnapping.  Some investigators believe an intruder murdered JonBenet Ramsey on Christmas, 1996 and that that person is likely to be found in the world of pre-teen beauty pageants - a scene John & Patsy Ramsey voluntarily subjected their little girl to.

David Cash, 1998 Profile in Cowardice
David Cash did nothing as his friend Jeremy Strohmeyer raped and murdered 7-year-old Sherrice Iverson inside a Nevada Casino restroom.  FBI Director Louis Freeh was Nominated in 1996 for not having the courage to issue a public apology to Richard Jewell, who lived under a cloud of suspicion once identified by the FBI as the Atlanta Olympics bomber.  Jewell became a wealthy man by suing Media outlets that falsely accused him based upon the FBI information.  The Jewell case was just one of several investigations botched by the FBI during the tenure of Director Freeh.

("What this country needs - a good 69 cent cigar!")  At right is Jeff Gannon, a White House press corps favorite who didn't quite have the courage to admit he led a double life as a male escort.
