Former Chief U.N. Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter Nabbed in Teen Sex Sting
FOXNews.com ^ | January 14, 2010 | Joshua Rhett Miller

Posted on 01/14/2010 7:50:01 AM PST by NCDragon

Former chief United Nations weapons inspector Scott Ritter was arrested in a Pennsylvania sex sting in November on a litany of charges involving a lewd Internet conversation with a person he thought was a 15-year-old girl.

Ritter, 47, allegedly masturbated in front of a Web camera while he was engaged in conversation in an Internet chat room with an undercover cop posing as the teenage girl.

The chief U.N. weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991-98, Ritter is accused of contacting the "girl" while using the handle "delmarm4fun" last February.

Ritter, of Delmar, N.Y., allegedly told the girl, "Emily," that he was a 44-year-old man from Albany, N.Y., according to an affidavit of probable cause.

True, posted earlier today, but FREEPers knew of Ritter’s propensity towards minor before Years ago. Most likely, Iraqi Intelligence knew as well and that is why Mr. Ritter change from there are WMD’s and the UN sucks, to Mr. Bush and the Neo Con’s are lying to make war...

FROM WIKIPEDIA:

Attempted endangerment charge

Ritter was arrested in June, 2001,[32][33] and according to one source also in April, 2001,[citation needed] in connection with police stings in which officers posed as under-aged girls to arrange meetings of a sexual nature. He was charged with a misdemeanor crime of “attempted endangerment of the welfare of a child”, although the sealing of the court records in the case means as a legal matter there was no incident. Ritter claimed the anonymous leak of sealed court records of his arrest was a politically-motivated effort to distract attention from his statements about Iraq.[32][33][34]In November, 2009 Ritter was accused of contacting what he thought was a 15-year-old girl in an Internet chat room, engaging in a sexual conversation and showing himself masturbating on a Web camera. In December, 2009 he waived his right to a preliminary hearing and is free on $25,000 unsecured bail.[35]

I remember there being, on FR, accusations of this type if behavior, when Ritter did his ‘180’ on WMD in Iraq, but nothing was ever made public. Now I wonder if he weren’t being blackmailed by someone, to do his public excoriation of the Bush Administration, using these activities as the threat.

No way! Neither Saddam nor the dems would ever do something as low as that!

OK, Scotty, we caught you doing this twice before. This is the third time. If we let you go, do you promise not to do this again? You are making us dems look bad.

*****

How stupid is this guy and people like him?? Does the thrill of possibly being caught make this more fun for them? Kind of like playing Russian roulette.

Makes you wonder what percentage of decisions on the political scene are forced on the basis of blackmail. (Birth certificate, natural born citizenship, Chicago politics, FBI filegate, healthcare votes, etc.)

Who knows - maybe dems will put him in charge of education - - they'll "call off" the usual FBI check... wouldn't be the first time.

Delmar is a suburb of Albany NY. This is the THIRD accusation against Ritter. He was let go on first two arrests (stings by the State Police, I think) BUT the records were sealed and no reason was ever given.

Everyone with a brain knew this was the reason for his 180 on Iraq.

FR was/is way ahead of the curve as usual.

This isn’t the first time. He was nicknamed “The Burger King” after he got caught trying to meet a minor for sex at a fast food restaurant.

Repeat offender:

Ritter's attorney confirms arrest: TV station claims tape shows [Bush-hater] caught in sex sting (WorldNetDaily.com ^ | Tuesday, January 21, 2003 | By Sherrie Gossett)

This has to be in violation of any parole he got.

Norah Murphy said Ritter was arrested in the upstate New York town of Colonie in June 2001, but she would not respond to allegations that he was charged with soliciting an underage girl on the Internet. Ritter lives in the Albany, N.Y., suburb of Delmar...The news director said the 16-year-old girl had been lured by Ritter to meet him at the Burger King restaurant in Menands, N.Y., in order "to have her watch him have sex with himself."

..."You know we've all wondered," added Limbaugh, "why it is that Scott Ritter has done a 180 on what he originally saw as a weapons inspector and then the last couple years, it's like 'Nah, the Iraqis don't even have the capability to make a thumbtack, much less a chemical weapon.'"

There was speculation at the time that he changed his story because the Iraqis possibly held compromising photo/video evidence.
