WHEELING - West Virginia House of Delegates candidate Larry Tighe on Tuesday was found to be living in "deplorable" conditions after he reportedly contacted the Wheeling Police Department believing recently escaped convicts had entered his home.
The conditions were so bad, according to a police report, the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department is investigating the matter.Wheeling police officers who entered the home will contact their doctors in regard to possible bacterial infections from breathing the air in the dwelling.
Although they found no evidence escaped convicts entered Tighe's Chapline Street residence, at about 11 a.m. Tuesday officers reportedly found animal feces and urine covering at least three rooms on the third floor of the residence.Officers refused to enter the basement of the home after Tighe told them the floor was covered with 12-18 inches of stagnant water.
Tighe reportedly told police the third floor of the home is where the two dogs and one cat found in the residence "do their business."Police also found bird feathers and what they believed to be bird feces on the third floor where officers could see the sky through a hole in the roof.
According to the report, one of the officers held a napkin over his mouth and nose in order to breath as he inspected the home, and officers had to step over garbage throughout the residence.The first-floor walls, ceilings and floors were falling in, and there was a hole in the floor due to moisture from a toilet, according to the report.
Ohio County Health Department officials reportedly asked Tighe to come out of the home three times, and he refused by saying "they need a warrant to inspect."The health department representatives offered to help Tighe in finding alternative living arrangements, but he reportedly declined the offer.
Wheeling Police responded to Tighe's residence at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, after Tighe again reported someone attempted to gain entry into the residence, according to Wheeling Police Department Sgt.

The Ohio County Republican Party recently voted to remove Tighe from the executive committee, where he served in an elected capacity.Tighe's removal stems from his conduct during the recent Ohio County Republican Lincoln Day dinner on Feb. 24 at the Fort Henry Club, party leaders said.
As introductions were being made during the dinner, Tighe stood up and confronted County GOP Chairwoman Kathleen Fortunato and accused her and the local party of intentionally ignoring him because of his sexual orientation.

Larry Tighe, a candidate in the 3rd District House race and a member of the Ohio County Republican Executive Committee, appeared in Wheeling Municipal Court before Judge Jeff Davis.
...
Tighe, a resident of Center Wheeling, was found guilty on two charges - being drunk in a public place and disorderly conduct.He was sentenced to time already served of two and a half days, and he received no fine.
...
Tighe told the court he is bilingual and that he often curses in German "because it is nicer."
...
Tighe repeatedly attempted to enter as evidence a sandal he wore home from the Northern Regional Jail following the incident and his subsequent incarceration there, but Miller told him the evidence only would be relevant if he could prove the sandal had something to do with one of the two charges against him and his arrest.
"Do you know how I was treated at the jail?"Tighe asked.He began to explain he was having his experience investigated by federal authorities, but Miller stopped him, saying this wasn't pertinent to the case at hand.
Miller later agreed to concede that at the time of his arrest, Tighe had on no shoes, socks or a coat.
Wallace said Tighe offered no resistance at the time of his arrest, and he noted that no breath test to determine Tighe's blood-alcohol content was administered.
Tighe testified that he had been invited to the apartment of a male friend he had "helped out a couple of years ago."Because the pair had planned to drink alcohol, Tighe said he asked if he might stay the night and avoid the walk back to Center Wheeling.It was snowing and about 10 degrees outside, he said.
The friend had agreed that he should stay, according to Tighe.
During the course of the evening, a second man and a woman came to the apartment, Tighe said.He testified he had removed his socks and shoes and begun to get comfortable when he was pushed out of the apartment.Tighe said he then began to bang on the door and curse in an attempt to get his shoes, socks and coat back.
"The rationale for pushing me into the hallway?I don't know," Tighe said."I know I was invited.I was always taught that if you have a guest, you look after your guest."
He added that he had had no intent to be drunk in a public place.
"I just wanted to get my shoes, socks and coat back, and I would have been willing to leave," Tighe said.
