Ouch.

You just have to figure this doesn't feel like the kind of publicity Charlie Bass wants his name getting:

A Nashua man faces a slew of felony and misdemeanor charges in the wake of his Saturday arrest for allegedly holding his girlfriend against her will, assaulting her, and attempting to rape her, police said.

Charles E. Bass, 44, of 58½B W. Hollis St. was taken into custody around 3 p.m. Saturday after uniformed officers responded to his home on a report of a domestic dispute, police said.

There they learned that Bass – not U.S. Rep. Charles Bass – had assaulted his girlfriend, who lives at the same address, police said. The unidentified girlfriend was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.
It sort of gives the cliche about "when did you stop beating your wife" questions a new level.

Although given how out of touch with the district Rep. Charles Bass (as opposed to the other one) seems to be, he may not even know this happened.

Now if only Bass could find a way to pin some of his votes on this guy, he might have a chance.

"Schiavo? Oh, no, no. That was the wife-beating Charlie Bass!"

Seriously, I feel a little bad for Charlie here. I probably shouldn't joke. Charlie is very nice to Americans, he only believes in beating people from other countries. And only when he's not in the room.
