Should have posted this yesterday, but the flu took all the wind out of me. Here we go.
Remember Ted Klaudt? The "former state lawmaker was convicted of raping two former foster daughters during physical examinations that he claimed would help them sell their reproductive eggs." He could get 25 years on each count, which should put him away for the rest of his miserable life.
"Twenty Dollar" Bob Allen's trial for soliciting sex from a police officer is in its fourth day, and Florida Today is making a halfhearted effort to live blog it here. You'll recall that Allen's defense was that, because big black men scare him, he offered the guy twenty dollars and a blowjob to make him go away. UPDATE: Tomorrow the jury will visit the bathroom stall in question. This scandal gets better every day. UPDATE 2: Bonus bathroom sex (non-Bob Allen).
There no indication of this guy's political affiliation, but the religious angle is interesting:
Peter Kim - a former youth pastor on trial over charges of sexual assault on a teenager - may have made a bad dating decision, but what he did was not illegal, his defense attorney said during opening statements Tuesday.
Kim, 40, is charged with child sexual assault by a person in a position of trust and a pattern of child sexual assault, which could mean a life sentence if he's convicted.
Kim was arrested last fall after a woman who had attended Central Presbyterian Church, 402 Kimbark St., told her therapist that the two were sexually involved between January 2001 and January 2004, when she was underage. He has a previous misdemeanor conviction for having a relationship with a teen he met while working with children at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church a decade earlier.
A bad dating decision was Anna Nicole Smith, or is Amy Winehouse. But kid-touching is kid-touching, plain and simple.
And finally another Republican from the great state of Florida:
MASCOTTE -- (AP) -- The mayor of this Central Florida city lost a bid for reelection Tuesday, hours after he was released from custody on molestation charges.
Jeff Krull, 66, received 31.64 percent of the votes, compared to the 68.36 percent challenger Feliciano ''Felix'' Ramirez received, according to the Lake County Supervisor of Elections.
Krull was charged Monday with six counts of lewd and lascivious molestation and one count of showing lewd and lascivious material to a minor. It's believed the alleged victims went to Krull's house to use his computer, Police Chief Steve Allen said.
Well, nothing here involves two wetsuits and a dildo, but it's still quite a showing. Ladies and gentlemen, your modern GOP.
