Obama-Supporting KGO Libtalker Calls For Death Of Joe The Plumber
CAUGHT ON TAPE: KGO Talker Wants Ohio Plumber Killed
*** EXCLUSIVE TO THE RADIO EQUALIZER ***

UPDATED BELOW: KGO / San Francisco libtalker / Obama supporter Karel has been caught on tape calling for the death of Joe The Plumber.
According to a key industry source, this DID go out over the airwaves.
Here's the clip (NOTE -- EXPLICIT LANGUAGE WARNING):
Karel, also known as Charles Karel Bouley, is an evening and weekend host at KGO radio in San Francisco. This incident occurred during Saturday evening's show.
Based in Los Angeles, Karel is a gay activist who also writes for the Huffington Post website.
This latest incident caps a weekend of unhinged behavior by Obama's supporters, including a call for the death of Mormons campaigning on behalf of Proposition 8 in California and the push for an investigation into the "leak" that Obama's aunt was an illegal alien facing deportation.
It also adds to a number of dubious recent developments at the Citadel - ABC Radio powerhouse station, including a widely-anticipated station announcement that actually turned out to be a cheap campaign stunt for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
In addition, KGO and ultra- liberal station manager Mickey Luckoff have generated negative headlines this year for throwing a lavish party at the Four Seasons Hotel in the midst of staff layoffs and attempts to rehire convicted child porn distributor / libtalker Bernie Ward while he was awaiting trial.
UPDATE: many have asked today what kind of punishment might await Karel or Luckoff over this. The usual CYA proceedure is to fire the engineer, but the flap over this is intense enough that it may take down Karel himself. Your Radio Equalizer is hearing that Citadel's corporate suits are currently trying to determine how to proceed.
Why Karel should be held responsible comes from Broadcasting 101: one must always assume the mic is HOT!
