I'm sure you can guess by this point, Mayor Gary Becker was a Democrat.

Not that it matters but no mention of political affiliation on any report I have been able to find. Safe to assume the guy is a Democrat.

I did the same thing. Took five links before one finally mentioned it. The MSM is so predictable.

According to JSonline, he was having trouble with his personal computer and brought it to a city worker to fix. That employee saw illegal activites and turned the info over to the authorities. His ass is grass. Prison is too good for this sicko.

I don't know about that, I hear most prisoners give pedophiles "special" treatment.

I wouldn't be surprised if Obama tries to pardon the guy.

He'd only have to do it if the national press picked up on it and it was shown that he had some like to Barry. But since we know that that MSM will down play the story to the same degree that would have up played the story had the man been a republican . . . . we can rest assured that there will be no need for a pardon.

Too bad that these freaks have their own cells for protection. This guy won't get a pardon.

Obama's reaction: "Yes, he was embarrased at these charges, and we - we knew beforehand this had happened. Just a small thing."

That was his reaction to his tax czar being caught, and I figure this for his canned response since so many of his picks are crooked, he's going to have to keep saying this over and over robotically.
