ROCHESTER, N.H. - A man wearing what looked like a bomb beneath his sweater and tie walked into Hillary Clinton's campaign office yesterday, taking three staff members, a volunteer, and an infant hostage, forcing the closure of the senator's campaign offices throughout Iowa and New Hampshire, and paralyzing this small city on the Maine border, authorities said. ...Eisenberg, formerly known as Ralph E. Woodward Jr., served time at Bridgewater State Hospital and MCI-Concord, according to court records.
In 2002, he filed a lawsuit in Suffolk Superior Court against Bernard Cardinal Law, in Law's capacity as Roman Catholic Archbishop of Boston, alleging he had been molested by a priest at St. Catherine's Church in Westwood in the early 1980s, beginning when he was 21.

An excellent subject for the Sunday morning shout fest on TV.
He claims he was molested starting when he was 21?
“I wonder which judge let him out?”
Another rabid liberal Romney appointed Judge?
is THIS the REAL face of the priest scandal? I don’t believe the guy......even his aunt didn’t beleieve him.....yet he scored some big bucks...YIKES!
Yeah, I’m surprised they haven’t come after Romney yet.
It may not have been a Romney judge. If it was....
I can’t get the Globe’s page to load on my cell phone. Does it explain how he was molested at the ripe old age of 21?
Shall we take bets? How soon will it be before HRC or anyone is screaming this happened because Bush cut the budget for mental health programs!
He claims he was homeless and taken in by a priest. I think the Globe has the church wrong, I believe they meant Westford, not Westwood.
In the suit, Eisenberg said his mother died when he was young and he was abused by his alcoholic father. He alleges he was homeless and living in abandoned cars in an Ayer junkyard when a priest invited him to live and work at St. Catherine's and another priest plied him with alcohol, showed him pornographic material, and molested him.
In an interview with the Lowell Sun in 2002 after his suit was filed, Eisenberg said he was ashamed and mortified after being sexually assaulted by the priest. "Subsequently, I spent years sexually objectifying women and womanizing in a futile to prove I wasn't a" homosexual, the Sun quoted Eisenberg as saying.
The priest denied molesting Eisenberg, and the newspaper reported that Eisenberg's paternal aunt said, "He's telling you a big story."
Hey, it could happen. I knew a man who started being molested by diner waitresses when he was about that age. They continued to violate him the rest of his life, which was 70-some years.
Westford, per the Herald:
“While in prison in Bridgewater, he filed a suit in September 2002 against the Archdiocese of Boston alleging he was molested in his early 20s by the Rev. Richard M. Buntel of St. Catherines Church in Westford. Buntel was removed from the ministry and underwent treatment for drug, alcohol and sexual abuse in 1994, only to be reinstated by Cardinal Bernard Law at a Wilmington parish in 1999.”
According to CNN and the MSM type thinking, if he’s a dem, he’s mentally ill. If he’s a Republican, he’s a Timothy McVeigh...one of millions of dangerous members of vast conspiracies...(not that CNN sucks or anything...)
NY voters beware. It could have been a William Weld appointee as well.
This guy reminds me of the one who created Clown Posse. Could this be the same guy?
Or Dukakis, some of those judges are still there.
No mention of his politics - and neighbors say he’s crazy - that means he’s a dem....
Abused by the right wing Bible thumpers, denied medical care....
Even if the priest was guilty as charged, “molesting” a 21 year old is not molesting by most standards.
Bill Weld won't go away, politically, and AFAIK, still has visions of being governor of NY.
If Spitzer still keeps up his act, NY voters may be beaten into voting for someone like Weld.
Need to search the guy and find out the last judge he was before in court.
To help me pick better judges, I'll use blindness I mean, WTF? How over educated beyond intelligence do you have to be to think that is a better idea?
"The Lowell Sun reported five years ago that in 1986, he forced a woman at knifepoint in Leominster to perform oral sex on him."
Sounds more like Bill Clinton if you ask me.
I agree, but it was a civil action and the archdiocese ended up paying most of the plaintiffs.
Poor man. What Diner was that?
When you're 21, it's not molestation, it's consensual. (Unless he's saying the priest used force or threats.
Every diner he could find, bless his heart.
This guy is luckier than he knows. If the beast were prez, this would have been another opportunity to call in the tanks with Janet Reno, crush the building, and burn it and him to ashes.
I wonder how people like that live with themselves.
Accused rapist let out after judge lowers bail, Thursday, November 29, 2007
"A celebrity Boston lawyer suspected of serially raping teenage girls is back on the streets despite allegedly reoffending while on probation.
After more than a month behind bars, onetime People magazine Most Eligible Bachelor
Gary Zerola, 36, yesterday coughed up $100,000 cash and walked free courtesy of Suffolk Superior Court Judge Regina Quinlans bail reduction on his behalf.
Zerola, who was once in contention to be The Bachelor on ABCs hit reality show,
is scheduled to go to trial Jan. 3 on charges including four counts of rape, one count of attempted rape, kidnapping,
indecent assault and battery and witness intimidation stemming from alleged attacks on 19-year-old women he briefly romanced in 2004 and 2006.
Zerola was rearrested last month in Miami Beach, where hes charged with sexual battery.
After sneaking out of state in violation of his Massachusetts probation, Zerola allegedly drugged and raped
an 18-year-old college student he met in a bar and invited back to his hotel room."
In Massachusetts, the 'judges' just do not give a damn.
Looks like Romney's been Dukakis'ed.
The left is always playing re-runs.
Info a little easier to come by over here.
I wonder if Eisenberg was required to required to register as a sex offender?
Thanks for the ping over.
Hillary is going to spin this into a health care issue.
The media is already dragging the Catholic Church into this.
Already being done on CNN this morning , I saw A replay of Anderson Cooper with two Experts ,and of course they said the man was crying out for help because of the LACK of mental Health coverage ! Here we Go ,then they showed the News conference of the Hildabeast herself saying this guy was not known to her Campaign before this incident , I guess she is sensitive to the Charge of another plant to change the subject. She of course tried to project herself as already the President , This witch is Shameless and This poor guy will be used just as Cindy Sheehan and then dumped on the heap .
MSM headline: “Hillary tested under fire. ‘No former president could have managed the crisis as well,’ says noted historian.”
That was jokingly predicted by several FReepers. But it’s no joke.
What am I missing here?
Why was it necessary to close every Clinton campaign office in Iowa and New Hampshire?
Some unreported, but suspected, VWRC against Hillary's campaign offices?
