If I wasn't so furious, I would provide better links. I'm trusting you guys to provide them.
There are some assumptions I'm making about this because of the coverage I've seen: I assume this is a partisan family. I expect it is a Republican family, but frankly, I don't care.
They did the right thing by calling this out. The fact that is kid could bring this issue to his parents is testament to good parenting. Whether I agree with their politics or not.
"Some people say" this was swept under-the-rug was that they didn't want the publicity. What I think: they were protecting this kid. Correctly.
"Some people say" that this kid was asking for it. Bullshit. Plain and simple. I'm not even going to begin to defend that, it is wrong. Period.
"Some people say" that this was just some innocent emails. THIS WAS AN ABSOLUTE HUNTING LICENSE FOR A PREDATOR. Everyone knows that.
"Some people say" that this is some kind of political attack. It isn't. It is about protecting children. It isn't our fault that the current leadership is incapable of protecting America on any level.
So, I know I rant, but the bottom line is: I want to thank this kid for standing strong and telling the truth. And I thank his family for raising him right.
Please thank this kid and his family for doing the right thing. They are on the brink of a massive media crush that will be very difficult for them.
