Top 10 Democrat Sex Scandals in Congress
Human Events ^ | 10/04/2006 | staff

Posted on 10/04/2006 9:09:02 AM PDT by GoBucks2002

Information compiled from the Washington Post, “Congressional Sex Scandals in History,” and other sources.

10. Sen. Daniel Inouye. The 82-year-old Hawaii Democrat was accused in the 1990s by numerous women of sexual harassment. Democrats cast doubt on the allegations and the Senate Ethics Committee dropped its investigation.

9. Former Rep. Gus Savage. The Illinois Democrat was accused of fondling a Peace Corps volunteer in 1989 while on a trip to Africa. The House Ethics Committee decided against disciplinary action in 1990.

8. Rep. Barney Frank. The outspoken Massachusetts Democrat hired a male prostitute who ran a prostitution service from Frank’s residence in the 1980s. Only two Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to censure him in 1990.

7. Former Sen. Brock Adams. The late Washington Democrat was forced to stop campaigning after numerous accusations of drugging, assault and rape, the first surfacing in 1988.

6. Former Rep. Fred Richmond. This New York Democrat was arrested in 1978 for soliciting sex from a 16-year-old. He remained in Congress and won re-election—before eventually resigning in 1982 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and drug possession.

5. Former Rep. John Young. The late Texas Democrat increased the salary of a staffer after she gave in to his sexual advances. The congressman won re-election in 1976 but lost two years later.

4. Former Rep. Wayne Hays. The late Ohio Democrat hired an unqualified secretary reportedly for sexual acts. Although he resigned from Congress, the Democratic House leadership stalled in removing him from the Administration Committee in 1976.

3. Former Rep. Gerry Studds. He was censured for sexual relationship with underage male page in 1983. Massachusetts voters returned him to office for six more terms.

2. Former Rep. Mel Reynolds. The Illinois Democrat was convicted of 12 counts of sexual assault with a 16-year-old. President Bill Clinton pardoned him before leaving office.

1. Sen. Teddy Kennedy. The liberal Massachusetts senator testified in defense of nephew accused of rape, invoking his family history to win over the jury in 1991.

Jimmah still felt compelled to speak about Playboy no less.

Only a Dem would do that. Poor Roslyn. How embarrassing.

Depends on the state. In some states "Uncle Dad" is an accepted moniker.

What surprises me is that - from this single article (supposedly written by an "accurate" MSM source, the readers at FR were immediately able to add 8 MORE democrat liars and hypocrites!

It just emphasizes just how criminal and biased and inept the democrat MSM is.

Good call on Condidit and Chappaquiddick.

I keep thinking that the lamestream media will quiet this down or at least offer a disclaimer on the hoopla.

But NOOOO! They are running it straight like it is from a DNC press release.

EVEN Al Jazeera says: "Not everyone believes the Jews and the US Government was behind 9-11 but..." before starting a 2 hour special on the 9-11 conspiracy theories.

Admittedly, it must have hard to make up a list of top Dem congressional sex scandals, because some would have to be omitted for lack of space.

But I find it a bit strange that Chappaquiddick wasn't on the list. Maybe some might argue that it didn't involve sex, but perhaps the autopsy report on the victim's body (if an autopsy was ever done) would prove otherwise.

Are you implying he didn't send the IMs? He did, and has admitted to it. BTW, where do you get that the E-mails were sent "years after"?

Geesh Louise...Foley was GONE before the IM's came out, so to my knowledge he never said he sent them.

The E_MAILS were during KATRINA...the IM's were from YEARS AGO!!!

How about LBJ boinking WH maids. How about Gary Hart boinking his mistress in Bimini. How about the Cape Cod Orca, aka Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy and another Senator making a "waitress sandwich."

Hey, not every incident can make the top 10.
