I will be curious to know if Fogle will successfully be able to be brought back into the Subway fold if this goes away.

    Fogle's not the target of the investigation. It's the CEO of his nonprofit Foundation, Russell Taylor, that is being investigated. Fogle's house was raided because of his relationship with Taylor.

    I don't dispute that. I'm saying IT DOESN'T MATTER. He is and will be viewed as "guilty by association".

    I know, but it's a toxic case and the employee of his foundation is complete and utter scum. Or am I jumping the gun on his employee being he hasn't been tried yet?

    All too true. I don't see Fogle or Subway walking away from this unscathed.

    Now, there's always some yahoo who comes along and says that's for court only. Phfft. If we don't believe it in our day to day lives, we're not going to apply it in court, either. It is the very rare person who can and will successfully do that.
    Innocent until proven guilty is a legal term; Jared is free to walk the streets. Public opinion and the media have different standards, they don't care about justice they care about headlines.

    But possibly suspected of being involved with child abuse? No, not funny.
    Possession of child pornography isn't the same as child abuse. Anthony Weiner did more harm by sending his junk out to women unsolicited, he actually had contact with the people on the other end. If Jared was involved in actual molestation, or even if he funded the creation of child pornography or harbored someone who did, then he participated in abuse. But just possessing such images doesn't do any harm anymore than possessing drugs or weapons when they aren't used. And there's no evidence yet that Jared even did that.

    That's terrible.

    Yeah, it is. Or at the very least, it's paying someone to abuse children on your behalf. When you buy child porn, that's what you're doing: you're paying people to abuse children for you. In the end, what they're investigating is child abuse.

    While what Weiner did was assuredly wrong, I take a very big issue with the idea that seeing a dick pick is just as bad as being repeatedly raped.

    I am not saying there is evidence he did have child porn. What I'm saying is that seeing comments assuming he did (or anyone did), and then joking about it, is simply not funny.
