While the left makes a villain and a fool out of Larry Craig (who, admittedly, has not helped himself), stories like this one go largely unreported.
A U.S. Senate aide was arrested Friday after allegedly arranging a lunchtime sexual encounter with a teenage boy, according to federal court records. James McHaney, 28, was nabbed by FBI agents after he arranged the afternoon liaison via a "cooperating witness" working with investigators.
It gets better...
the CW and McHaney were conversing online Friday afternoon when the CW asked whether McHaney was interested in engaging in anal sex with a 13-year-old boy. "I'll be there," McHaney allegedly replied. He later asked for a photo of the child with whom he and the CW would have sex and whether the boy had "any pubes." When told no, McHaney allegedly replied, "That's hot."
And who does this aide work for?
McHaney had worked as the D.C. scheduler for Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell. A caller to Cantwell's office was told late today that, as of last Friday, McHaney no longer worked for the Washington state politician.
Well, kudos to them for firing the guy once he was arrested (he was arrested that day), but if we're going to persecute people in Congress, let's do so equally. Plus, soliciting sex (gay or straight) is not on the same level as soliciting sex from a minor.
