The third circle would be tax evasion specialist.

The file on former Rep. Robert E. "Bob" Bauman provides yet another glimpse into the way the organization compiled its confidential records, which were made public last week by court order.

Isn't the BSA the same group that won't lets gays in their clubhouses because they will supposedly teach little Jimmy all sorts of immoralities?

Child molesting Republican trifecta in play!

It's kind-of depressing when you realize that sociopaths are always going to infest our politics, simply because they've turned manipulating people into a science, and at the end of the day, politics is purely manipulation.

So the Congressman was found in the BSA's "perversion files"? Is it because he was actually a pervert, or was he just gay? Because the BSA puts the gays in the same files as the molesters. It's anyone they don't want in the club, and they all get lumped together.

So, what the fark was a 16 year old boy doing in a frikking bar in the first place?

Getting drunk, one would assume.

I bet the drinking age in 1980 was 18.

Bauman, a rising star of the Republican Party at the time

This is my shocked face.
 
2012-10-23 12:43:51 AM  
I'm giving him a pass on this one - not even gonna get upset about the Republican affiliation. It was a tough time to be middle-aged and closeted gay. He didn't grope a 13-year-old Scout sleeping in a pup tent, for heaven's sake. Enjoy the rest of your life, old dude.

This may come as a surprise to you, but there is a LINK to the STORY. It answers your questions. Much easier than having someone repeat the link for you...

It was where I lived. 21 didn't start going into effect until a couple years later.

This story is lame. Closeted alcoholic hits on underage kid at bar. Boy scouts get the story sent to them, so they "consider" putting him in a file.

slow news day?

Maybe they don't want the competition?

Umm, I know this is Fark, but isn't more than 30 years old news even for us? I mean, sure, if he was still a Congresscritter, bring out the skeletons in his closet. But this scandal is literally older than I am. Cmon.

Well, the scandal is that the BSA kept all their child molester files secret, and cared more about the accused molesters than they did for their victims, all while judging gays and non-religious people as being unsuitable to be good citizens, and they were just forced to release those files, which included this former Congressman.

You know, news.
 
2012-10-23 01:36:48 AM  
Wait... he's a Republican? Weird...
 
2012-10-23 01:37:42 AM  
Remember when "gay republican" meant the rich white guy got to foreclose on more than one house in a day?
 
2012-10-23 01:44:52 AM  
So was this guy an actual perv or just gay? Being the Boy Scouts and all, they tend to conflate the two.
 
2012-10-23 02:31:33 AM  
So, he was a RINO?

rynthetyn: So was this guy an actual perv or just gay? Being the Boy Scouts and all, they tend to conflate the two.

He is probably just gay. Were he a pedophile, he would have left a little more than just one questionable incident behind him. Besides, isn't being gay enough, like totaly gross, and stuff!
 
2012-10-23 03:18:58 AM  
Didn't take long for the butthurt ghey fanclub to lower the BSA to their level. 'ah, you don't want to let me little tri-sexual Tim-Timothy-Tina into Scouts, huh? you'll regret this!'. Way to stay classy, hair dressers of america.
 
2012-10-23 03:32:26 AM  
Meh. He wasn't diddling Boy Scouts, and it's fair to assume people in bars are of legal age, so pardon me if I reserve my outrage for the BSA for covering up abuse by actual child predators.

Karac: Isn't the BSA the same group that won't lets gays in their clubhouses because they will supposedly teach little Jimmy all sorts of immoralities?


It's a shame, really. Boy Scouts as an organization are great. You learn a lot of cool stuff, and they really focus on community service as well.

Then there's the Catholic Church style sexual predator coverup. This is going to do nothing but hurt them, and they only have themselves to blame. I'd still let my stepsons join, I'd just monitor what was going on even closer. I never had any issues as a kid, and my stepsons didn't for the two years thy went when they were younger, but the way this shiat is blowing up, I am starting to think we just got lucky.

Yes, and as an Eagle Scout, the whole hypocrisy of the whole thing really pisses me off.

So a gay Republican, no surprise. The BSA keeping secret files on people who aren't scouts, now that's a surprise.
 
2012-10-23 06:47:41 AM  
To be swept up in this file, he would have to have attended BSA events or been involved with scouts through another scout master. He may not have served in any formal capacity, but my spidey sense tells me he was connected to diddling scout masters in some way.

It absolutely was in Florida, and I got in at 16, and I am not a hot female.

well, CONgressmen do love to F*ck.

evidence is the way they gobble money from their Corporate/Wealthy Owners and then F*ck the other 98% of the American population.

FTFA: Bauman said he resented having "dirty laundry" from decades ago brought up again because of the Boy Scouts' "mess." "I really am sorry that my name even appears in there," he said of the organization's files.

According to TFA, he digs 16 year olds.

Enjoy the rest of your life, old dude.

Fark him, the bigotted, coniving, lying sack of Shiat ! He wrapped himself in the flag, the Bible and his "morality" when he ran for office, and then turned out to be a pervert and a liar. He deserves to be ridiculed and exposed again as the hypocrite he is.

My understanding is that the perversion files are only for adult to minor behavior and none have been found for strictly adult homosexuality outside of scout functions.
