    I saw Popeye's ignorant post about the craigslist killer being a member of college republicans. Popeye and Shaman have basically called republicans and conservatives murders with post's like these over the past few weeks. I thought that it was time to post a list of crazies from the Democrat side of the aisle. There are terrible people that do terrible things of all colors, parties, ages, and genders. People like Popeye and Shaman don't want to say truthful statements, like the one I just made, but rather they want to try and villainize a whole section of people as murdering, ignorant gun wielding maniacs. So I thought that this list was appropriate to prove my point.

    John Wayne Gacy, rapist, murderer, democrat fund raiser
    Michael Skakel, Kennedy, murderer
    William Kennedy Smith, Kennedy, rapist
    Brian Doyle, dem activist child molester
    Neil Goldschmidt, Oregon governor, confessed child molester
    Rep. Mel Reynolds, D-IL child rapist pardoned by clinton
    Cynthia McKinney
    Robert Byrd-member of KKK
    Sen. Daniel Inouye, accused of sexual harrassment
    Former Rep. Gus Savage, fondling peace corps volunteer
    Former Sen. Brock Adams, rape
    Former Rep. Fred Richmond, soliciting from a 16 year old
    Former Rep. John Young, sexual harrassment of staffer
    Former Rep. Wayne Hays, traded secretary job for blow job
    Ira Einhorn, rape and murder
    Guilt by association department: Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who would be speaker of the House, and the ACLU Foundation has contributed to her campaign. That’s the same ACLU that defends the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA).

    How about former office holders and office holders:
    Gerry Studds: unindicted child rapist

    Edward Moore Kennedy - Democrat - U. S. Senator from
    Massachusetts.
    Pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, after his car
    plunged off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island killing passenger
    Mary Jo Kopechne

    Barney Frank - Democrat - U.S. Representative from Massachusetts
    from 1981 to present. Admitted to having paid Stephen L. Gobie, a male
    prostitute, for sex and subsequently hiring Gobie as his personal
    assistant. Gobie used the congressman's Washington apartment for
    prostitution. A move to expel Frank from the House of
    Representatives failed and a motion to censure him failed.

    Gary Condit - Democrat - US Democratic Congressman from
    California. Chttp://houseofpolitics.com/forum/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=94187ondit had an affair with an intern. Condit, covered up the
    affair and lied to police after she went missing. No charges were ever filed
    against Condit. Her remains were discovered in a Washington DC
    park.

    I can continue to the list if you would like more.

    I think my post was extremely relevant since Republicans have been blasting Janet Napolitano over words in a report stating right wing extremism was a concern. Well, the CraigsList killer proves that the Republicans were wrong.... right wing extremism is dangerous.

    Here's a few Republican scandals for you, I can continue the list if you would like more...

    2008

    Bruce Barclay, former Cumberland County commissioner, videotaped hundreds of sexual encounters — many with male escorts — using cameras hidden throughout his Monroe Township home.[1]

    Matthew Joseph Elliott, former aide to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was convicted of sexual exploitation of a child.[2]

    Vito Fossella, the only Republican member of Congress from New York City, admitted to police to having a child out-of-wedlock when stopped for drunk driving.[3]

    Robert McKee, Republican delegate from Western Maryland, announced his resignation after authorities seized two computers, videotapes and printed materials from his Hagerstown home in a child pornography investigation. McKee also resigned his position as executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County.[4]

    Daniel Dean Thompson, 31, a Utah retailer of "family-friendly" tapes and DVDs (Hollywood films with the "dirty parts" cut out of them), arrested and booked into the Utah County jail on charges of sexual abuse and unlawful sexual activity with a 14-year-old.[5]

    Derek Walker, former Eagle Scout and candidate seeking the GOP nomination in a race for north-central Pennsylvania district, was charged with felony burglary and criminal trespass stemming from an encounter last year with an ex-girlfriend, during which he allegedly broke into her home and used his cell phone to videotape her engaged in an intimate moment with another man.[6]
    2007

    Robert "Bob" Allen, Florida state Rep. Arrested in the afternoon at a Veteran's Memorial Park for solicitation of prostitution from an undercover male officer inside a restroom. According to the papers Bob "offer[ed] to perform oral sex for $20". Bob Later claimed that his offer had something to do with his being afraid of black people.[7]

    John David Roy Atchison, Republican prosecutor, was arrested for soliciting sex from a 5-year old girl, then killed himself three weeks later. At the time of his arrest, Atchison was an "assistant U.S. attorney" appointed by President Bush's attorney general.[8]

    E. Ozwald Balfour, chairman of the Utah Republican Black Assembly and elected to the Republican State Central Committee in 2007, even though he was awaiting trial on four felony counts of forcible sex abuse dating back to his arrest in February, 2005.[9]

    John Bryan, Republican city councilman, killed himself after police began investigating allegations that he had molested three girls, including two of his adopted daughters, ages 12 and 15.[10]

    Larry Craig Republican Senator for Idaho, was arrested on July 11, 2007, by plainclothes police officer investigating complaints of lewd behavior in a Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport airport men's room. On August 8 in Hennepin County Municipal Court in Bloomington, Minnesota, Craig entered a guilty plea and paid a $500 fine.[11]. On September 1st, Craig subsequently announced his retirement from the Senate[12]. Five days later, Craig changed his mind, renounced his retirement and began a battle to have his guilty plea overturned.[13]

    John R. Curtin, Monroe County state Republican committeeman, was convicted of molesting an underage teenage boy and sentenced to serve six to 18 months in prison.[14]

    Richard Curtis, Washington State Rep., resigned from the House after reports of his sexual encounter with a male escort became public.[15]

    Donald Fleischman, Brown County, WI, Republican Party Chairman, resigned his post after he was charged with two counts of child enticement, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child and a single charge of exposing himself to a child.[16]

    Larry Dale Floyd, Republican Constable in Denton County, Texas Precinct Two. Arrested for allegedly crossing state lines to have sex with an 8-year old child and was charged with 7 related offenses. Age 62 at time of arrest.[17]

    Ted Klaudt, former South Dakota State Rep., found guilty of four counts of second-degree rape of two teenage foster daughters.[18][19]

    Ronald C. Kline, Republican Judge in Orange County, CA, pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography on his home computer after six years of legal wrangling. In 2002, charged with child molestation and under house arrest on federal charges of possessing child pornography, political analysts still gave him a 50-50 chance of winning the March 5 primary for the Orange County Superior Court seat. He lost the election to a write-in candidate.

    Joseph M. McDade, 75, was issued a summons on a charge of exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor that carries up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. The longtime Pennsylvania Republican congressman who served for 36 years in the House and now works for a Washington lobbying firm, has been accused of exposing his private parts to two women at a beach resort on Sanibel Island. [20]

    Patrick Lee McGuire, former former Flagler County Commissioner, surrendered to police after allegedly molesting girls between the ages of 8 and 13.[21]

    Jon Matthews, Republican talk show host in Houston, was indicted for indecency with a child, including exposing his genitals to a girl under the age of 17.[22]

    Joseph Monteleone Jr., Elyria city councilman, was found guilty of fondling underage girls and asking them, to have sex with him.[23]

    Glenn Murphy Jr., chairman of the Clark County Republican Party and president of the Young Republican National Federation, resigned both posts, after the Clark County Sheriff’s Department began investigating Murphy for alleged criminal deviate conduct. A 22-year-old man claimed that Murphy performed an unwanted sex act on him while the man slept in a relative’s Jeffersonville home. During the investigation, a similar accusation from 1998 came to light.[24]

    Armando Tebano, Schenectady County Republican Chairman, pleaded guilty to fondling a 14-year-old girl.[25]

    David Vittner, junior Senator from Louisiana, became one of the few high-profile politicians to be implicated as a client of "D.C. Madam" Deborah Jeane Palfrey.[26]

    Thank you for proving my point. There are crazy people on both sides, all colors, ages, and genders. Left wing extremist are just as dangerous as right wing extremists. Especially the ones that go around blowing buildings up, killing people, burning buildings down, etc.....all in the name of peace and animal rights. I don't see ads on here calling all democrats and liberals murders and racists. However, I have noticed that every chance you and Shaman get you are trying your hardest to lie, smear, and label all Republicans and conservatives as the same. I'm just calling you out on your double standard.

    And I don't see Democrats calling for resignations, such as Republicans have demanded of Napolitano, because a report dared suggest that extremism could be a threat.

    that's because they would have to actually talk about what the report actually said, not not cry that it said everyone on the right its a terrorist.

    and that the craigslist killer was a college republican is pointless. there was a craigslist killer here in MN as well...who I don't believe was one. But we could say he was white, so all whites are murders....

    The original thread was deleted. This one is now closed. Folks, we are here for legitimate discussion. This continuous back and forth over these such issues are a pain in the rear end for the mods. Lets all take a collective deep breath, calm down, keep things polite and mature. Things have been relatively calm around here for the last few months. I would like to continue down this path. I really hate handing out infractions, so please dont force the hands of the moderators.
