    Name That Party: Mass. Rep. Promises to 'Rip Apart' 6-Year-Old Victims on the Witness Stand


    Once again, it's time to play "Name That Party." As the Massachusetts State Legislature debates "Jessica's Law" -- named after Jessica Lunsford who was raped and murdered in Florida by a repeat sex offender -- one representative who is against the law expressed his displeasure on the floor of the House. Really expressed his displeasure. The representative, one James Fagan, said he'd

    “rip apart” 6-year-old victims on the witness stand and “make sure the rest of their life is ruined.”

    In a fiery soliloquy on the House floor, Fagan said he’d grill victims so that, “when they’re 8 years old they throw up; when they’re 12 years old, they won’t sleep; when they’re 19 years old, they’ll have nightmares and they’ll never have a relationship with anybody.”


    Another representative, Karyn Polito, "a Republican from Shrewsbury who supports Jessica’s Law," understated the case when she said about Fagan's comments, “The words speak for themselves. I think there’s a large part of the (House) membership that doesn’t agree with that.”

    Hmm. Ms. Polito's party affiliation is mentioned, but what about that of the quite-offensive Mr. Fagan? The Boston Herald's Dave Wedge doesn't offer it. Three guesses as to which party Fagan belongs ... and the first two don't count.

    I have sat through criminal trials on sexual abuse cases, where the kids (sometimes really young kids) testified against the perp. I don't know how it is in MA, but here, the judges don't tolerate the lawyers mistreating the kids on the stand.

    That's a good mark in their favor in my book.

    Rep Fagan is probably a member in good standing of Nambla.
