Gubernatorial Candidate Ted Strickland (D): Homo Pedophile Enabler

Here's the quick story.

Strickland hired a "senior" staffer. He conducted no background check. He was annonymously tipped the staffer was a pedophile, exposing himself and masturbating in front of actual children. (Not 18 year olds-- children.)

Strickland took no action against him. The staffer later left his staff of his own volition.

In addition, Strickland inexplicably voted "present" (one of only 13 Congressmen to do do) when an anti-child-sex bill came up for a vote.

Some will object that Strickland almost certainly knew nothing about his staffer's propesnity to masturbate in front of children. After all, no staffer, no matter how competent and useful, is worth that kind of nuclear political blowback should his predilictions be exposed.

But then, the same can be said of the GOP and Mark Foley -- one very minor Congressman running in a safe Republican seat, where pretty much anyone legitimate with an R after their name would win, would hardly merit a conspiracy and cover-up, either.

And yet the media and the Democrats wish to punish the GOP as if they engaged in precisely such unlikely behavior with malice aforethought.

Well, by the same standard, Ted Strickland should be forced to withdraw from the race for "enabling" a homosexual pedophile by not taking aggressive action against him. If a sort of political strict liability attaches in one case, it attaches in the other, too.
