StrikitRich: FTA:  The federal criminal complaint alleged that Farnham, 66, a Democrat from Elgin,...


Nothing to see here. Move along now.


Yeah your right, the LIEBRUL MSM Media won't say a word about this- it will be hushed up, covered up, ignored, hidden, or passed over, simply because he's a Democrat. That's why it's in the Chicago Tribune, Huffington post; NY daily news, UPi ,and just about every other news source in the state.

People who hate their own kind tend to be harshest on their own kind

I think they feel embarrassed at who they are and that is why they are so harsh

See, the difference here is that we're more than happy to call for this asshole's resignation. If it was a Republican all we would hear about was how he was set up.

I'm sure you'll be back to tell us how you're a Libertarian so you really don't care one way or another.

I don't know what kind of images police or FBI must go through with these sort of cases but it must be like having someone vomit on your soul.

The truly scary point about these cases...
The ones you read about are the truly stupid ones that use work computers, leave incriminating evidence on public social network sites, use credit cards to pay and don't know how to cover their tracks using proxies and not deleting their browsing history.

How many more intelligent pervs are out there who do understand how to cover their tracks?????

Somewhat off topic, but I highly recommend listening to this recent episode of This American Life if you have a half hour.  The journalist tracks down and interviews a few members of an anonymous, loose-knit internet support group for a group of young adults who are struggling to come to terms with their recent realization they're pedophiles - all of them pedophiles who never have and never want to act on their pedophilia, but rather want to better understand why they are what they are and help each other prevent themselves from ever going down that road.  Truly fascinating and heartbreaking.

You would rather he demand that his sexual orientation be validated and publicly accepted?


It's just a matter of time before they start using the "I was born that way" defense and start conducting genetic research to prove it.

Let's see... We have Yee who was a gun control guy being caught running guns.  We have this A-hole who was all anti child porn being involved with it...

What's next?  One of the big mouth pieces involved with the war on terror actually being a member of Al-Qaeda?

You just proved his point as did everyone else trying to make this about Democrats or evil LIBS. 1/10 trolling. 10/10 projection.

I'm pretty sure that anyone who can get elected to any office higher than dog catcher in Illinois (and New Jersey and New Orleans) should be sent straight from their inaguration to prison.

While you're correct, It's odd how I've never seen you post that in the myriad of threads where farkers jump on non-Democrats.
