Republican Pedophiles


The news yesterday of John David Roy Atchison, Assistant U.S. Attorney from Florida, being charged with flying to Detroit to have sex with a five year old girl [criminal complaint | indictment] (pdf) has the web guessing about Atchison's political affiliation - Republican or Democrat. There's anecdotal evidence that he's registered as a Republican, but it's inconclusive as of this posting.

However, while researching the subject of Republican pedophiles I came across the list below which absolutely boggles the mind. Republican "family values" hypocrisy roared back into the headlines recently with Senator Larry Craig's toe-tapping antics in a Minneapolis public restroom, but this hypocrisy isn't something new and, sadly, children have been the victims of Republican pedophiles many, many times.

And this list was created in 2005! Any links to an updated list are appreciated. -

[UPDATE: Ron Mills provided this link to an updated list - and the list includes links to sources and reports. - Nice work, Ron.]

There is no anecdotal evidence of party at all, only idiotic speculation based on the current president being republican lol.

The anecdotal evidence would indicate that he's a democrat, as the AP has a long history of pointing out anything they can, even if it ends up being bogus, about republicans who act badly. This while they subdue any mention of anything that might cast the democrat party in a bad light.

Case in point, and there are many. New Orleans after Katrina, the state of Louisiana won't allow victims out of the city, and cuts off food aid to them brought by the Red Cross. Bush was blamed for all of this, and in articles by the AP he was held as personally responsible for the conditions. They failed to report that the Governor Blanko, a democrat, refused to allow the Feds to take over the situation, and she was ineptly calling the shots. They failed to report it was the state who stopped aid to New Orleans by the Red Cross, because they didn't want trouble getting people to leave New Orleans. They didn't report that it was the State who stopped victims from leaving, but actually ran stories about Feds stopping people, which was untrue, it was the state. The AP also ran stories about conditions in the Superdome that were completely false, pinning them to Bush "as he flew over in AF 1" as they put it. This is just one example, and there are many.

So I would say that anecdotal evidence, being that the AP wrote this story is that if it were a republican it would be well known. The fact that this guy's party was kept out of it screams that he's probably a democrat, knowing the AP and their well demonstrated record of politically left bias.

Lee Ward:

The anecdotal evidence I referred to is a report from someone who claims to have checked the voter registration records in Florida and found Atchison registered as a Republican.

If and when it's been proved out one way or the other I'll report it.

List has been updated



Lets face facts! Both parties have sickos in their mist. However; which party is the "party of family values"? It's the GOP. There are more GOP members over the last couple of years being busted for sex crimes, corruption, bribes, etc.

But all the wing nuts can say is about "cash in the freezer Jefferson, or Clinton getting a BJ by a female Demo. If Monica was a puggie, they really wouldn't bitch about it, right?

And Abu Gonzo swore they (Dept of Justice) was doing everything they could to protect kids. If the history is true, Regan admin hired this creep, and Regan didn't hire dummo's. What does that tell you?

Anyone want to bet that OJ is also a GOP member? Makes you wonder, doesn't it. Oh, and after pleading guilty, flip/floping Craig is trying to change his plea. Man the laughs keep coming from the puggies.

Brian Ribbon:

Wow, you really don't understand what "pedophile" means - http://anu.nfshost.com/2007/paedophilia-according-to-the-dsm

Lee Ward:

I'm not sure the clinical definition applies here, Brian.

This definition seems to be an adequate fit:

The term pedophile is also used colloquially to denote an adult who is sexually attracted to adolescents or youths below the local age of consent,[2] as well as those accused or convicted of child sexual abuse or child pornography related offenses."

Or you could just check in with the GOP. They'd know...
