Posted on 04/30/2014 8:12:36 PM PDT by dead
Illinois representative Keith Farnham has been charged with using state and personal computers to trade child pornography.
The 66-year-old allegedly boasted about molesting a six-year-old girl and used online chat rooms to discuss his fantasies.
When he resigned on March 19, one week after his Elgin office and home were raided, he claimed he was standing down because of health concerns.
On Monday the Democrat, who twice sponsored Bills to impose stricter sentences on pedophiles, was accused of using online chat rooms to trade images and videos of child abuse.
Authorities linked a Yahoo! email account used by the married father-of-one to an online trading forum, the Chicago Tribune reported. Allegations: Farnham, 66, is accused of trading graphic images and videos +3

In one online conversation in November, Farnham allegedly described molesting a six-year-old girl and having sexual intercourse with the child's mother while the girl watched.
The retired Navy veteran is not currently facing charges over the alleged encounter
n other online chats linked to his email address, the state representative allegedly discussed videos that were being shared.
According to the affidavit, in one message he allegedly said: '12 is about as old as I can handle. I love them at 6 7 8.'
The affidavit claims that between August 2013 and January of this year, hundreds of images and video, including one of a six-month-old baby being abused, were shared from the email address.
Several attachments, showing young girls being forced to perform sex acts on adult men, were allegedly sent from Farnham's state office computer.
One piece of equipment seized was marked 'Property of the State of Illinois House of Representatives'...

Their tax $$$ at work.
He’s one sick puppy.
I think the jury has enough to work with there, as long as it isn’t too liberal.
......described molesting a six-year-old girl and having sexual intercourse with the child's mother while the girl watched.
So 12 is too old but he's doing one of his victim's mother?
So glad we’re investigated to make sure we’re paying our taxes so this sort of guy gets his paycheck.
Remember, he’s exempt from Obamacare:)
Any older and they exceed the mental age of his constituents...
In 10 years this will not be a crime anymore. In fact, they will have special non-discrimination rights.
We got a home phone and address on this child molester?
When I see this, I keep thinking ‘flame thrower’ and the line from Saving Private Ryan, “Let ‘em burn!”
He should be castrated with a dull butter knife and left to die in a sewer. That mother should be sterilized and left to rot in solitary confinement. All pedophiles should be killed.
It’s so hard to believe it makes me wonder if someone is doing a hatchet job on him.
I know that is likely not true, but it is that hard to believe looking at his picture, he looks so innocuous.
WOW! Obama must be proud of him along with Bill Clinton as well. Sick freaks from “HELL”.
12 is juuuuuuuuust a bit outside?
The hounds of hell have been unleashed in our country....if this is even a country any longer. Think of what the Untied States was, in say, 1959, and look around now.
I really hope your prediction is wrong about the age of consent being dramatically lowered, if not all together eliminated. If this comes anywhere close to being the accepted norm, you can count on explosive crimes of anger by school kids to start occurring every other day. Their goals will be to destroy people and or property with a total lack of empathy. That total lack of empathy or personalization will represent how the deranged kids feel life has been presented to them.
I’d like to read a news story with ths guy’s name and “botched” in the same sentence.
Elgin IL = sanctuary city.
Hope this freak gets heckled every time he shows his ugly mug.
It would haunt me forver. I don’t know how the detectives who work these cases handle it. I’ve often wondered what happens to the children & are they ever identified & helped? People who hurt children should be executed.
I live in the Chicago area. This was covered ever so briefly by local news either on Sunday or Monday night. Zero mention of party affiliation which told me everything I needed to know. Next day I found he is a democrat - buried in 3rd or 4th parargraph of a Chicago Tribune article.
This has completely dropped from the news since then. Nothing to see here - move along...
Saw the press confrence yesterday. He stated he has some lung disease which he will die from unless he gets a transplant and hep c which he stated “a lot of Viet Nam vets have”. Referred to his lawyer to answer any questions about the charges.
Right know he’s on home confinment, no computers and no dealings with anyone under 17.
The UK Daily Mail has become the best source for any scandal involving a Democrat. US media just pretends they never happened.
I guessed California, but Illinois would be my second choice.
Who will run in ex-Rep. Farnham’s district? No Republican is running in that race.
Anna Moeller took over the seat and will run for the office. The only things I know about her is she tried to run the prenatle songrams out of Elgin when she was on the Elgin City Council.
Daily Herald said that the Il Republicans my slate Raushenberger to run against her.
How did you hear that? I couldn’t get a name back when this was an issue just “someone on city council”.
