    Wu at center of sex allegation

    Rep. David Wu has been accused of an “unwanted sexual encounter” with the teenage daughter of a longtime friend, the latest scandal to engulf the troubled Oregon Democrat.

    The Oregonian reported that the 56-year-old Wu “acknowledged a sexual encounter to his senior aides but insisted it was consensual,” according to sources aware of the incident.

    So if a Dem makes unwanted sexual advances, it's A-OK with PeteEU and TGN? For shame gentleman.

    Re: Wu at center of sex allegation

    Wu is separated from his wife and the girl is 18, so its not a huge scandal if the sex was consensual. The real problem is the complete lack of evidence on what actually happened in regards to sexual assault. He was accused in 1976, but no legal action was taken. In the new accusation, it appears that once again there will be no charges. Sexual abuse is unfortunately one of the most difficult cases to handle, as victims have trouble reporting it and physical evidence provides little. On the other hand, its also unfair for the accused to be condemned without any proof.

    The man is a freak and a creep.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Which part of “unwanted sexual encounter” could be consensual? Just about all rape is she said, he leaves DNA, he goes to jail.

    Lock his stupid ass up.

    The encounter took place in November so there isn't going to be forensic evidence left. Even if there was, DNA proves they had sex, it doesn't say whether it was consensual or not.

    If not consensual, I hope he gets the full punishment. I kind of worry that when politicians do stuff like this, they get away with easier than normal people or just get a slap on the wrists.

    Weird, usually it's the ultra conservative types who are defending any male against any rape accusation, saying that an accusation after the fact doesn't mean it was rape, etc.

    The wealthy and powerful have a different justice system set up for them, yes.
