This guy was 58 having sex with a 17 year old girl .....

Someone who would be his granddaughter's age.

I don't think any normal thinking person would defend such an act.
Not to mention, that a 17 year old woman would have issues of her own if she consented or was attracted to a man her grandpa's age. That makes it worse, the old goat is taking advantage of her youth as well as any issues she may have. Most teenagers are not attracted to men who are bumping up against 60 years old. There were underlying issues on her part as well.

It doesn't matter. 17 is way too young for a man in his 50's. This is sick shit. Most sane men would never have sex with a woman who is the same age as his daughter or grand daughter. I could never support this, politically or not. A douche bag is a douche bag...republican or democrat.


IMO it should be illegal in every state.

And, those "underlying issues on her part" were exploited by this man.

His actions equate statutory rape according to VA law.

Virginia Age of Consent Laws 2019

Virginia statutory rape law is violated when a person has consensual sexual intercourse with an individual under age 18. A close in age exemption exists that allows teens aged 15-17 to engage in sexual congress with each other, and minors 13-15 to do the same.

So still no outrage over Ducan Hunter??

The Trumpster's double standards again.
Sorry, I find having an affair less bad than pedophilia.

Sure neither makes for a trustworthy person, but is the intent to justify one of them because of the other? Would it not be preferable to have someone that actually can be used to highlight moral character rather than arguing that their people are as horrible as ours?

These extremist on the Left are always defending actual predators like this.

Democrats in Virginia keep setting the bar lower and lower. The Governor in black face, the Lt. Governor credibly charged with rape, this guy. A freak show.


In 2014, Joe Morrissey, then a 57-year-old delegate to the Virginia General Assembly, plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was sentenced to 12 months in jail (with six months suspended) because of a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old office assistant at his law firm.
On Tuesday, he won his election to the Virginia Senate. I'll give you one guess what his political affiliation is.
That's right, he's a Democrat. And he won his election with more than 60 percent of the vote.
...


Obviously Joe believes a half dozen Republicans, including Trump, can't be wrong!

Exactly. A grown, sane, 50 year old man would suspect something was wrong if a teenage girl was receptive to him. It is up to an adult to put the breaks on in a situation like this. A sick fuck guy thinks with his "johnson" and justifies the action or thought process of a "sweet young thing". This is why we need more women in politics. It is not very often, you hear of a 58 year old woman in a sexual relationship with a teenage boy.
