    Senate Aide (R) Suspected of Distributing...

    Senate aide suspected of distributing child pornography - latimes.com

    By Morgan Little December 11, 2013, 4:09 p.m.

    WASHINGTON - A senior aide to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of possessing and distributing child pornography.
    Law enforcement officials took Ryan Loskarn, chief of staff in Alexander’s Washington office, into custody after seizing evidence in his home.
    Loskarn was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.
    Alexander said he was "stunned, surprised and disappointed."
    "I was just informed by United States Senate legal counsel’s office that law enforcement agents are conducting a search of the personal residence of Ryan Loskarn, the chief of staff of my Washington, D.C., office regarding allegations involving child pornography," Alexander said in a statement.
    Loskarn was placed on leave without pay. Alexander named his legislative director, David Cleary, to replace Loskarn as chief of staff.
    "The courts will judge Mr. Loskarn’s guilt or innocence, but under these circumstances, he cannot continue to fulfill his duties as chief of staff of this office," Alexander said.
    Loskarn, 35, became Alexander’s chief of staff last year. He previously had served as communications director for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and a staff assistant for former Rep. Wally Herger (R-Calif.).

    No? why should they? He's Alexander's ****ing aide.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Regardless of party, that is a pretty messed up thing to do. If convicted jail will not be kind to him.

    That's pretty damn terrible.

    Still the disgusting moral failings of one man does not reflect on the entire party.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    In all fairness I cannot see how this reflects badly on Lamar Alexander or the GOP. How would he have known this guy was a pedophile and its not like these sick individuals are just in one political party.

    How about multiple men? David "diaper" Vitters, Larry " foot tap" Craig. Etc etc
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I agree that both parties have the screw ups and their oddball sexual behavior, but this is on an entirely different level than adult sexual shenanigans, even adult shenanigans with diapers, or tweets of one's penis to ... an adult, or even compared to corruption. And which party is the first (as far as I know, and hopefully only one ever...) to be connected to pedophilia on an apparently pretty big scale??? The "family values" party aide.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    No. It's only a very small percentage of Republicans that do things like this. You can't extrapolate them out to the entire party.
