  •  In lieu of a diary: "1000 Days of Sodom" (3+ / 0-)

    I'll post this because it links to so many of the articles that appeared here. In lieu of a diary, I offer you:

    1000 Days of Sodom (

    This was going to be a sordid story of sexual predators in the halls of Congress, of powerful men seducing children. It was going to be the story of a conspiracy of silence at the highest levels of American government, of perverse crimes protected by men in public trust. It’s a  story which challenges the moral authority of our institutions and raises serious questions of complicity by Representatives we have elected.

    The title of this article references 120 Days of Sodom, a novel by the Marquis de Sade, the man who gave his name to ‘sadism’. While de Sade’s story of rape and domination of children by men of power was allegorical, this story is not. This story is as serious as torture, but the truth is I don’t have the heart to write it myself.  Instead, I give you links.

    The questions Congressman Rohrabacher needs to answer:

    • When did you discover that Congressman Foley was soliciting underage pages?
    • When did you discover that Mr. Nielson was dating under-age boys?
    • Did you ever meet Mr. Nielson's boyfriends?
    • Were you concerned that his boyfriend(s) seemed very young? Why not?
    • Have you contacted families of other children you put in the presence of Mr. Nielson? If not, why not?
    • Did Mr. Nielson have any contact with House pages? Have you made an effort to determine if he acted inappropriately with those pages?
