A Portland man filed a $5.3 million lawsuit Wednesday against the Boy Scouts of America, alleging he had been sexually abused by his Scout leader who had been previously banned from Scouting for giving alcohol to minors.
The lawsuit alleges that despite Calvin Malone's ban, the Boy Scouts of America's national office allowed the Portland branch, the Columbia Pacific Council, to hire Malone in the mid-1970s.
Officials from the national office sent a "personal and confidential'' letter to the head of Portland's Boy Scout office, asking the local office to "alert (them) to be on the lookout for anything that might cause (them) to have concern about (Malone),'' according to the plaintiff's attorneys.
"Unfortunately, there is no indication that the Boy Scouts gave any similar warnings to the parents or boys in the troop that Malone took charge ," said attorney Steve Crew, one of the plaintiff's attorneys.

but nothing happened
Hey, Boy Sodomites of America, this is only the first pebble of the giant avalanche that’s coming your way, and I don’t even give you the sweat off my backside in sympathy, since you had full fair warning and knowing went ahead with your insane policy change. To plagiarize the illustrious Rev. Wright, “your chickens, they’s a comin home to roost and defecate all over your heads.”
This is what happens when you break your own oath:
Brave. A scout faces danger even if afraid. He doesn’t back down.
The Boy Scouts backed down, truckled to the homosexuals, and now their enemies will destroy them.
And yet, NAMBLA a.k.a. GLSEN can commit the same abuse and receive accolades and funding by this feral government.
It's obviously a Leftist operation to achieve this goal.
So: a kid gets sexually molested at the age of 12; nada for 40 years; then at age 52 suddenly "realizes" that the abuse harmed him; too late to bring criminal charges against the pervy pedophile; but not too late to sue the BSA for $5.3 million.
Does he even have to prove he was molested?
Sorry. Looks like a career path to me.
This is the liberal playbook.
Demand to have homosexuals in the boy scouts; then sue them when the homosexuals prey on the children.
We begin to envision a future in which the Boy Scouts are legally barred from refusing leadership roles to homosexuals, then sued when the homosexuals molest the boys.
Alas, it’s the end of another fine, old institution thanks to this disease of political correctness and the rise of homosexualism.
When do they start awarding a merit badge for butt f***ing?
