Yet another Republican pedophile.

“The police report states police arrested Stringer in September 1983, after a boy told officers that Stringer had met him and a friend in a park a year earlier, and asked them to come back to his apartment to have ‘some sex,'” the Republic reported. “Stringer paid the boys $10 after he performed oral sex on them, and they performed the same act on him, the police report states.”

Did he resign to go work in the Trump administration? Seems like chief of staff material right there.

When this was on the local news I had two questions...

A) why did he run for office?

B) considering this story comes from court documents from the 80s and the voters had a chance to consider this in their votes, why is the local legislature freaking out about this? Voters got their say.

Those court documents are from Maryland. He got elected in Arizona. It's not clear to me anyone in Arizona knew about this when they voted for him.

You don't have to have known about it to have a chance. Voters chose to not look that deeply. That is tacit approval.

You're absolutely right. Standards should do the hard work of meeting people where they live, and grappling with the problems of the real world.

Your standards take the easy way out, which is why nobody respects them.

There's nothing in the world easier than impossible standards. They're easy to come up with, you don't have to strive to meet them, and you can blame anyone for anything because they failed to live up to them.

I don't care if it was the 1980's or even earlier. This was soliciting sex from and performing sex on children. Disgusting.

Is there some difference you're trying to point out? Like some political affiliation is holier than thou?

Quote:
The co-owners of backpage.com, a website allegedly directly linked to child prostitution and trafficking, gave lots of money to Democrats recently, including donations to:

David Garcia — a Democratic candidate for governor in Arizona
A political action committee backed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
The Arizona State Democratic Executive Committee
The Colorado Democratic Party
The Democratic Party of New Mexico
Two separate donations to Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO)
Two separate donations to Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ)
Quote:
Jacob Schwartz, 29, was an up-and-coming young Democrat who worked on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s staff until he was arrested in May on child pornography charges in which he allegedly kept more than 3,000 images and 89 videos of pornographic acts committed by children.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) is currently on trial facing federal corruption charges, which started in 2012 over allegations that he and another man were having sex with underage prostitutes.

Don't bother. Bob already laid out his argument. Scroll up to read it. But don't bother. It's a stupid argument, and it won't get any smarter by you pressing him to repeat it or defend it.

Wow. And I thought Bob's argument was going to be the stupidest one in the thread. At least his have a certain dispassionate international consistency.

Fair. It is safe to say not so disgusting that they did not perform an exhaustive effort to confirm he was not that. They had a limit to their disgust.

How Identity, Not Issues, Explains the Partisan Divide
Quote:
Of all conflicts between groups in America, partisanship is one of the most divisive, with 86% of Americans seeing strong conflicts between Republicans and Democrats... U.S. liberals and conservatives not only disagree on policy issues: they are also increasingly unwilling to live near each other, be friends, or get married to members of the other group...

Now, surprising new research suggests that what divides us may not just be the issues...

Identifying as liberal or conservative only explained a small part of their issue positions. identifying as liberal or conservative was a stronger predictor of affective polarization than issue positions...

If Americans slide into seeing all policy debates as battles between Us vs. Them, we stop selecting policies based on their actual content. Ironically, this would lead to choosing policies that don’t match our personal values, because the content and evidence would become less important than the source.
Why Republican Voters Decided On Trump
Quote:
Trump won the nomination despite having all types of deviations from conservative orthodoxy. He seemed wobbly on all parts of Reagan’s three-legged stool: economic policy (he largely opposes free trade and once advocated for a wealth tax and single-payer health care), social policy (consider his constant flip-flopping over abortion), and foreign policy (he openly mocked the Bush administration’s handling of the Iraq War, which is still fairly popular among Republicans).

Trump’s main differentiator was doubling down on cultural grievance: grievances against immigrants, against Muslims, against political correctness, against the media, and sometimes against black people and women. And the strategy worked. It’s a point in favor of those who see politics as being governed by cultural identity — a matter of seeking out one’s “tribe” and fitting in with it
Majority of Republicans want Brett Kavanaugh confirmed even if assault accusations are true
Quote:
A new poll reveals that, for a majority of Republicans, the question of whether Brett Kavanaugh committed sexual assault is unimportant in terms of whether they feel he should be appointed to the Supreme Court.

Eighty-three percent of Republicans support Kavanaugh's nomination, according to a recent survey by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll. More noteworthy, 54 percent of Republicans said that they would support confirming Kavanaugh even if it turned out that the sexual assault accusations against him are true. Only 32 percent of Republican voters disagreed with that sentiment.
There's a shambolic pile of hate and bad reasoning alright, but it isn't coming from me.

If you have ever voted for anyone, then so do you, as there is always more effort that you can put in to trying to find out if someone was a pedophile or not. Not having been convicted doesn't equate to not having committed the crime, so clearly searching for a criminal record isn't enough.

Until fingerprints were digitized in the 1980s it was a lot harder to check people out. Now once you're in the system you're there forever. I don't know if this guy's prints would have popped up in a search, but it's not information the general public has access to.
