Oh boy; here we go again. Another crusader for increasingly harsh and overreaching laws aimed at registrants busted for doing precisely what he has crusaded against; and I’m also sure a large part of his political career has been built upon this crusade. Let’s see how long it takes for this hypocrite to pass go and collect $200.00. He had to put up $4,500 for bail and is living at his condo where he shares a balcony with his neighbors who have a young child. He will probably get to keep his pension too. Anyone remember Rep Foley! This was… Read more »

“Hoist with his own petard.”
I just have to wonder how this man convinced himself that he wouldn’t get caught! Or did he think that his position would protect him?

If enough high profile people are caught in the trap perhaps something will be done to bring the punishment in line with the crime.

Hi Margaret Moon: There’s already a very long list of “high profile people” that have been involved in all manner of sexually perveted sex scandals and they have never had any effect on the general population because they invariably seem to be downplayed with special treatment of just swept under the rug. Good ol boys club? Just check out the links. I think you’ll be suprised at how quickly people forget. I have three links in the hopes of getting the list as complete as possible, but I sure a few have been missed because there are so many! List… Read more »

It is good advice to heed the warning, Beware of the Zealot! People like Farnham, Walsh and others who write their versions of “tough on crime” laws eventually do get caught in their own trap. Those are not truly spiritual people, but rather hypocrites who punish others for their own sins. The Zealots in Christ’s time were forceful, aggressive agitators that condoned and encouraged violence against others who didn’t believe as they did. The Biblical Zealots ultimately met a violent end at the hands of Rome. The modern day zealots will also meet their Waterloo because of the laws they… Read more »

Can’t say he didn’t know what the penalties were, he wrote them. I doubt it, but maybe this guy will realize that sexual deviency would be better treated as a mental health issue rather than piling harsher punishments as deterrent which doesn’t work.

Hi Tim:

It’s too bad he didn’t consider this as a mental health issue before he was arrested. I don’t think he will be able to exert much in the way of influence from this point on.

I guess not.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
