If this is true, itís wrong as hell, but what can you do in this case? He wasnít even 13 when this all supposedly ended, and thereís no indication of anything done afterwards. Would he have gone to required counseling? Are adolescent sex crimes sent to juvenile court? Are kids that young registered as a sex offenders?

Itís really terrible what happened to her and must have been traumatic to review this 40 years on. She must have really felt pushed to the edge to file a lawsuit over this now.

OTOH will people sue their childhood bullies for the times they got kneed in the groin or got pantsed in the locker room? If it means holding hosed up people accountable Iíd be for it, but it really changes the standards for culpability.

Time for some more good news. Rand Paul wants you all to know civil forfeiture is a scam. My take: Now that people are more suspicious of police work, now is the time to get what you can get in the way of reform. And civil forfeiture is of course, a scam. I hope the FAIR Act passes.

I think that was the youngest time something happened, and went on and off until she was 18. I think it started out as random weird kid things and blew up into predatory behavior. If I remember correctly she was forcing her sister to sleep in bed with her, kiss her, and inappropriate touching.

That being said. A child sexually assaulting another kid under the age of 10-12 is a pretty clear sign that the child is themselves a victim of sexual assault/molestation themselves. If Adam did rape his sister before the age of 13, then Iíd be looking at the people around him because itís a learned behavior. Kids that young donít understand and donít really have urges until they hit puberty.

It varies by state. In New York, juvenile delinquent age is 7-18. Older children can be prosecuted as almost-adults or as adults, depending on age and severity of the crime they're accused of committing.

TLP sucks rear end but if they want to take bites out of Donald that a Democratic challenger can use to their advantage, then I'll cheer them all the way on that.

I know that as soon as trup is gone they will turn around and attack the Democrat in office, though, so I have no illusions about them being good people.

Seems not great.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/30/politics/senate-removes-ban-foreign-election-help/

quote:

he Senate will incorporate the annual intelligence policy legislation into the National Defense Authorization Act -- but only after stripping language from the intelligence bill that would have required presidential campaigns to report offers of foreign election help.
Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday that Senate Republicans forced the removal of the election reporting provision as a condition to include the intelligence bill on the must-pass defense policy legislation.
Earlier this month, the Senate Intelligence Committee approved an amendment on an 8-7 vote from Warner and GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, which added a provision to the Intelligence Authorization Act requiring campaigns to notify federal authorities about offers of foreign election help.
That bill, however, was unlikely to get Senate floor time on its own, which is why it's being included in the National Defense Authorization Act. The effort to strip the foreign election help provision from the intelligence bill was not a surprise, as acting Senate Intelligence Chairman Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican, predicted earlier this month it would be removed before the bill was on the floor, because of an objection from the Senate Rules Committee.

Warner bemoaned what he called a "back-room deal" to strip out the provision.
"If my Republican colleagues want to strip this legislation out of the NDAA behind closed doors, then I'm going to offer it up as an amendment to force an up-or-down vote and put every member of this body on the record," Warner said on the Senate floor.
The amendment approved by the Intelligence Committee was an adopted version of Warner's FIRE Act, which he introduced last year. It would require all presidential campaign officials report to the FBI any contacts with foreign nationals trying either to make campaign donations or coordinate with a campaign.

Warner tried to bring up his bill on the Senate floor several times over the past year, but Republicans objected each time. When Sen. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, blocked the bill in June 2019, calling it a "blatant political stunt." President Donald Trump applauded her efforts on Twitter.
It's not clear if Warner's amendment will get a vote. The Senate is debating the defense authorization legislation on the floor this week.

There hasn't been 16 continuous years of Democratic presidents since Roosevelt and Truman. They're long-gaming it, because the DNC *always* fucks themselves over when they get ahead.

Also, Biden is barely a Democrat, and I have a nasty suspicion he'll skew even more right-wing after taking the oath.
