Democrat Caught Having Sex with 17-Year-Old Boy at Rest Stop
FOX NEWS ^ | August 21, 2012 | FOX NEWS

Posted on 08/21/2012 4:53:41 PM PDT by MeganC

Democratic leaders in Minnesota are demanding a state lawmaker withdraw from his re-election bid after police claim he admitted to having sex with a 17-year-old boy at a rest stop.

While Rep. Kerry Gauthier, 56, will lose support from fellow Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party members if he continues with his campaign, party leaders stopped short Monday of asking him to immediately resign.

The first-term legislator wasn’t charged in the alleged July 22 encounter because the legal age of consent in Minnesota is 16 and no money was exchanged, according to the St. Louis County attorney’s office. Police say the two had oral sex behind a rest stop pavilion in Duluth after the teen responded to Gauthier’s Craigslist ad looking for a “no strings attached” sex.

Police reports made public last week say Gauthier came clean about the rest stop rendezvous.

I wonder if the MSM will make a big deal of this like they did with Akin who merely stuck his foot in his mouth?

Lets see if certain FReepers can summon the same passion they have for the Akin situation and call for this guy to step down.

No — only the exercise of free speech is punished by Democrats and squishy old GOP senators.

I know that this is a serious subject but I can't help asking "on what grounds?" Democrats have no moral standards that they aren't willing to sacrifice in pursuit of political power. So what gives here? Any Minnesotan's have some insight that they'd like to share?

Why should he resign? What did he do that was wrong? Isn't this behavior sanctioned by the DNC Electoral platform? /sarc

Now it’s just a head job at the rest area.

Even if this were legitimate sex, I don’t think the boy would get pregnant. His body has ways of dealing with this.

So true. If this was a republican they would have tarred and feathered him by now.

Give him a pass.

After all, he's an elected democrat so faygut sex and abortion are part of his agenda politically.

They will sweep it under the rug-—because they don’t want everyone to know JUST YET that the main reason for homosexual “Rights” (not from God so unconstitutional) is to have free access to the “boys”. Homosexual societies embraced pederasty. (Learned behavior and Godless worldview).They teach boys to “love” sodomy and hate women. It is the “Worldview” which is sexist—has to be to exclude half of the human race. Afghanistan is a homosexual culture. They use harem of boys and they hate women—just use them for breeding—the boys and men are for companionship and recreation.

You have the Bohemian Grove type people who just want to dress up in Occult clothing and have homosexual orgies (with boys of course) and give sacrifices to Moloch.

That is why such a rabid attack on any Christians. Have you noticed yet???? Got to normalize sodomy in schools (for the boys) and through Pride days and using Glee programming. The Hollywood Professors-—the ones who were raping the Corey actors in their homosexual orgies—just like John Maynard Keynes who went to 3rd world countries so he could also castrate young boys for fun—are STILL OUT THERE RAPING boys, BTW. No outrage because it is not the Catholic Church which condemns sodomy.

Christians put that evil worldview/behavior in the closet when it was rampant in Western Civilization. They want to eliminate God so they can resurrect this Freemasonry occultism of sodomy and Satanic rituals. They sodomize the girls too. Have you ever wondered why “Shades of Gray” was so pushed in our culture-—to the young girls? To promote anal sex. It was all to normalize the idea—desensitize. The homosexuals hate women’s bodies also-—it is why women in Arab countries are mutilated-—they can still sodomize them and they are still able to breed boys for them.

Haven’t heard a peep about this in the press(I know, stunned, stunned I tell ya..NOT!) meanwhile its wall to wall coverage on Akin who “Said” something stupid..meanwhile you have this guy who had sex with a child yet not a peep from the media. Akin didnt commit a crime, he said a stupid stupid thing, but this guy, this guy actually committed a crime, yet no one says anything about it. Maybe now would be a good time for the GOP to tell everyone in the media “Hey if your going to associate Akin with Romney-Ryan, than we will associate ALL Dems with this sex crazed pervert who gives head to children.”

Jail? Not in Minnesota.

The teenager was legal age in the state and responded to a public ad so that's no basis for criminal charges.

The public acts were, at most, a misdemeanor under MN law.

You might not like the law, but it was what it was and the prosecutor decided it wasn't worth wasting resources on minor charges particularly in light of the "exposure" the state lawmaker would get anyway.

Which is a "big deal" here - a state lawmaker having consensual sex with a legal-aged person or a major party candidate for U.S. Senate insulting women, harming the pro-life movement and digging in when called to step aside?

Sorry. No contest. Akin deserves the spotlight. This MN story was on FR last week and you didn't notice. What's that say?

Legal?
609.345 Criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree.
(e) the complainant is at least 16 but less than 18 years of age and the actor is more than 48 months older than the complainant and in a position of authority over the complainant, and uses this authority to cause or induce the complainant to submit. Neither mistake as to the complainant’s age nor consent to the act by the complainant is a defense;

I’d say the old fart used his authority as an elected offical.
