California - An aide of California Attorney General Kamala Harris has been charged with running a 'fake cop' protection racket first started by the Knights Templar in AD1204.
California Justice Department deputy director of community affairs Brandon Kiel and two LA chums are charged with operating a fictitious police force.
Similar to one that fronted for the Spanish Inquisition in 1589.
Rap sheet details allege a haul of Masonic ritual regalia including pistols, ceremonial swords and velveteen cloaks with ostrich feather trim, etc, were discovered at the trio's fake police 'HQ' .
A Masonic directory of funny handshakes and initiation costumes was also found along with a 55-gallon barrel of bourbon and sixty pairs of scarlet tights.
Commenting on the arrests someone at California's Justice Department said, "This could well fuck up Kamala Harris' chances of replacing US Senator Barbara Boxer in the forthcoming election in 2016."
