Tea Party Candidate May Be Headed for Jail

Scott Ashjian, the Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senate in Nevada, has been accused of writing bad checks for his asphalt business and faces up to 14 years in prison, KTNV-TV reports.

A judge is expected to sign an arrest warrant tomorrow.

Ashjian's entry into the race was seen as big break for Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) as polls showed him pulling votes from Republican challengers.
