Skip to comments.Rep. Dale Kildee to refute child sex abuse/incest claims
Posted on 11/20/2011 10:39:20 AM PST by safetysign
Rep. Dale Kildee, Michigan Democrat, will be responding to accusations on Monday that he sexually abused his second cousin decades ago. I spoke to Kildee on his way to the airport on Sunday and he denied the charges. The Washington Times affiliated radio program America's Morning News also discussed the charges with the 17 term Congressman who is retiring this year and who previously headed up the now defunct House Page program.

His duties as Head of the House Page program were similar to Barney Frank overseeing Fannie Mae.
?? “His duties were Barney Frank”?
They identified him as a democrat in the first sentence?
A sure sign of The End Times...
I think Barney Frank would be more interested in Freddie Mac than Fannie Mae.
Retiring? I wonder what the good congressman’s pension will be.
No, it's The Washington Times. Conservative-leaning paper.
The internet is an interesting place..
"After Christian Broadcasting Sytem President and CEO Jon Yinger submitted an ethics complaint against Kildee over his alleged abuse of an underage second cousin, the congressman quietly announced his retirement. When efforts were made to identify other possible victims, the House Page Program, whose Boardhe chaired, was abruptly terminated, Kildee has been running ever since, canceling interviews, and keeping a low profile, Yinger said.
For three decades, some of Kildee's family members claim they hid a shameful secret-that of the abuse of a young boy, who was 12 years old when the future politician from Flint, Michigan allegedly began to abuse him. The parents of the victim have been burdened with unspeakable guilt as beunbeknownst to them, they invited a predator into their home, where he allegedly proceeded to molest their son, "We encouraged Kildee to run for office and even went down to Flint to spur him on," the victim's mother said. "He spent almost every weekend at our house-it turn;s out in my son's bed," which was stationed in the basement away from adult supervision."
The story continues about Patrick as a young man who spirals into drugs,slf mutilation and mental illness. Patrick allegedly only spoke out after hospitalized with other victims of child abuse. The family alleges they confronted Kildee who never denied it , but spoke about two consenting adults. Patrick's sister said she confronted Kildee in his DC office and he denied the abuse and reminded her that her brother was mentally ill.
Barney likes Fannies.
Retiring? I wonder what the good congressmans pension will be.
He should get his full pension unless these accusations turn out true. I always begin these accusations as suspect until the facts come out. The cousin waits this long? Why? The facts on Sandusky came out with witnesses and other factors which is why his guilt was almost immediate.
This guy gave the term “turning the page” a whole new meaning.
I was in the Army with his son, Paul.
“Cousin.” The word is gender neutral. My first thought was to wonder: boy or girl. I suspected it was a boy.
Sure enough: “For three decades, some of Kildee’s family members claim they hid a shameful secret-that of the abuse of a young boy, who was 12 years old. . . .”
It’s the Washington Times. They’re conservative in orientation. They are not going to cover for a dem.
There’s never just one victim. These vampires tend to start when they are themselves in their teens.
It ain’t genetic. I only wish there were some definitive figures on what percentage of childhood molestation victims become molesters, what percentage become violent criminals and what percentage become gays.
Barney likes Fannies.
Barney like Freddie's Fanny.
I thought it was only us Orthodox Christians who still (or maybe ever) regarded second cousins as falling under the taboo against incest (we forbid marriages, and would regard fornication as incestuous, out to the seventh degree — second cousins once removed, or first cousins three time removed).
No, Ben Dover. (witless protection program)
"He spent almost every weekend at our house-it turns out in my son's bed, which was stationed in the basement away from adult supervision."
Why a 52-year-old man would be spending every weekend at his Aunt and Uncle's house, sleeping in their son's bed in a basement, without attracting notice or suspicion is weird to me. The congressman is the slimiest form of life, and the parents appear to have been negligent.
Looks like Penn State can fill that open President position now. This creep will fit right in there.
This guy personifies what’s wrong with the Congress (and the voters in Michigan for that matter). He’s been in congress since 1976! He taught high school for ten years then spent one term in the Michigan House. Then it was “off to Congress!”
For pete’s sake, he’s 82 years old, and quite likely would go on his merry way until they carried him out, were it not for these allegations. When someone is in a elective office this long it’s just asking for corruption! Everyone says Congress is useless with a 9% approval rating, and yet the Kildees continue to be re-elected. Like Pogo said “ we have met the enemy and he is us.”
It’s a Democrat. Nothing to see here, folks . . . move along.
Barney tried to have the name changed to ‘Fannie Mark’ but the pedophiles wouldn’t hear of it.
Actually, I think his preferences would be The Fanny and Mac.
>>>Sidenote ... I am thinking it may be possible that we will be seeing many more men coming out to disclose they were abused by an adult when they were kids. I think the Penn State issue has opened some wounds and people have found courage to speak up as adults.<<<
I’m also thinking, sadly, that you’ll see many more attention addicts speaking up against powerful and not-so-powerful public figures to cash in on the action.
A lot of questions circulate in my mind reading the minimal amount of material here. The incidents took place 50 years ago - when the alleged victim was 12 and the alleged perp was 31. The victim is now in a mental hospital. What came first - the mental illness or the abuse? Why wait 50 years? Are there others? Yes, most of the time there is a pattern of behavior, but sometimes there is not, too. Statistics aren’t individuals. It is just as easy for me to imagine a guy walking around burdened with guilt and shame as it is for me to imagine a guy walking around looking for the next kid to molest. The timing seems odd, especially in light of the Penn State incident. I see online the congressman is retiring, too.
Rep. Kildee might be guilty as hell, but that’s for a jury to decide. My fear is that we’ll all be 80 years old somewhere and something shameful that we had done many decades earlier - and that includes just about everyone - will suddenly be broadcast online as happening news. There are things I did in my youth for which I have enormous shame and regret, and those self-recriminations changed my character. I’m not the same guy I was when I was 20 years old; in fact, I’m unrecognizable compared to him.
Maybe it’s time to rehabilitate forgiveness and mercy. Just a thought.
Difficult for me to believe that living human beings would vote for this guy.
See this for example.
Reminds of the old joke about the Sunday School teacher asking the class, to sum up the lesson, "OK, can anyone tell me what we have to do to get God's forgiveness? Anyone?"
One little boy in the back raises his hand timidly.
"Sin?" the little boy replied.
I think *real* repentance has to come first.
“Cousin. The word is gender neutral. My first thought was to wonder: boy or girl. I suspected it was a boy.”
Why? Gays are only 2 or 3 percent of the populace. Why would you immediately assume it was a gay attack?
>>>I think *real* repentance has to come first.
God’s blessings to you too, buddy. :)
I think Barney Frank would be more interested in Freddie Mac than Fannie Mae.
My money is on Freddie’s Fanny.
Can you think of any politician from MI in the last two generations who has been a patriotic conservative? I know there are a few House members who might fill the bill. But MI voters nearly always make bad choices. I think they are hoping their latest officeholder will set up a federal program just for them.
If it was your child that was raped would you be pleading for the perp to walk?
Dale Kildee always reminded me of an evil, mirror-universe twin of Bob Dole.
>>>If it was your child that was raped would you be pleading for the perp to walk?<<<
Not my point. Of course, having my child raped would make me so enraged they’d have to hold me back from killing the SOB.
But let’s use your example to prove my point. Let’s say my little boy was raped by a neighbor, and in a fit of rage, I picked up a large stick and crushed his skull. I can imagine what that would do to me. I’m not a killer, but I have killed. I’m rarely violent, but I was at that moment. You could easily bring out statistics showing that murderers almost always have a long history of violence, starting with animals and childhood friends, and advancing from that point, which wouldn’t be the case for me. In any case, not only would I probably have an emotional collapse from the rape of my son, but my remorse from having committed murder would drive me to a temporary insanity.
Now let’s advance the story four decades. I served time. I have spent my life attempting to make up for a single act of blind rage. I have asked the Lord for forgiveness, and repaid my country and society over and over. I’ve moved, and changed as a man, and always carried the shame of the moment.
Now it reappears in the media - let’s say the son of the man I killed comes back and blames me for all his problems. With modern media, it is possible to find just about anyone, and hang that person up to dry in public. Yeah, the son of the man I killed says, it’s payback time.
OK, that’s a big example. But what about lesser evils - the things that usually fall into the category of criminal behavior that is less serious - drunkedness, drug use, slapping your girlfriend, sex with a girl who tells you later she’s 16 years old, an affair with a married man, an abortion, an indescreet remark immediately regretted. You did it, you regret it, you change your life, and after the decades pass by, now the victim comes forth. The internet allows us to bring that to light now. In the past, we had the comfort of distance and time to grow and rebuild ourselves. What kind of world will it be when any mistake at any time becomes the hammer to wreck a life decades after the fact? All I know is that very few people manage to get through life without making grievous errors of judgment, not the least of whom is myself. So my default right now is mercy while I wait to see what the facts bring forth.

Another case of a homosexual - a Democrat elected to public federal office - molesting an adolescent, 12 years old. Who became mentally ill after being molested, apparently for some time. And then the Dem pervert ran the House Page Program! Fox in henhouse. Sick! More proof that homosexuality is dangerous for OTHERS and homosexuals should be discriminated against! How many teenagers in the House Page program did he molest? And Leftists and some right here on FR want to say that the homosexual agenda doesn't exist or doesn't affect anyone. It affects countless kids and young people whose lives are ruined!!
Homosexual predators never, never just molest once. And then he was in charge of the Page program, already notorious for sexual behavior and remember Mark Foley? He was messing around with Pages.
This is no doubt the tip of the iceberg. And comparing a one time misdeed done out of rage to a homosexual repeatedly molesting a 12 years old share no equivalence at all.
dang he looks like the Joker. He’s wearing makeup or has the most unfortunate complexion.
That’s actually good Kirk in the picture with evil Spock. Mirror, Mirror is probably my favorite episode of STTOS!
Yo Lazlo==Philly boy myself. Went to Girard college.
It’s sad to see my Alma Mater, Penn State in the abusing boys boat.
Graduated ‘65. Different school then. Stopped donating in the early 70s when I realized how far to the left it had turned.
Are the charges true? I don’t know much about the Congressman in question.
I have no clue if they’re true or not. I know the name but know very little about the guy.
As much as I enjoy seeing a Rat fry, I despise these accusations surfacing after 15-20 years. Who the hell can defend against it? The court of public opinion has then already decided guilty, just to be sure. Even if decided innocent, they are ruined.
