Bob Caldwell was with 23-year-old Tigard woman when he went into cardiac arrest(Cover-up blown)

Bob Caldwell, editor of The Oregonian's editorial pages, was in the Tigard apartment of a 23-year-old woman when he went into cardiac arrest Saturday afternoon.

The woman called 9-1-1 at 4:43 p.m. to report that Caldwell, 63, was coughing and then unresponsive after a sex act. Washington County sheriff's officers and medical personnel responded and transported him to Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, where he later was pronounced dead.

The woman told deputies she met Caldwell about a year ago at Portland Community College. Caldwell, she said, knew she didn't have much money, so he provided her cash for books and other things for school in exchange for sex acts at her apartment.

Caldwell had not given her money Saturday, she told deputies. They decided against pursuing prostitution charges. Deputies notified Caldwell's family of his death Saturday evening.

The Oregonian previously erroneously reported that Caldwell had been found in his parked car on Saturday, based on information from a family friend.

So he had a family but decided prostitutes were a better deal. Seems the man had some real problems that he never confronted. A very sad end!

Maybe his wife stopped having sex and he would be screwed $$ if he asked for a divorce? Maybe he tried everything in the book to get his wife more passionate and she still say's no??

I've heard it took the mortician three days to get the smile off his face.

23?

Yep, that would send me into cardiac arrest!

At this point in my life, I'm almost afraid to even look at 23-year-olds. :=)

No, but Bill Clinton will...

My guess is that on the capability to suck an object through a garden hose scale she’s up to a basketball. Beats the hell out of the ones that are down at the marble level.

LOL. I always liked the analogy of being able to suck the chrome off a trailer hitch.

The stuff at the end was the most disgusting and arrogant - you’re lucky you missed it.

These two so-called elites were such jerks. I can see why newspapers are failing all over the country and having to let people go... It’s because the ideas behind them are horrible.

I don’t know any businesses that can survive when the people running the business look down on their customers the way these two do...

Again - for when your blood pressure comes down...

Yes, Rush would get in trouble for calling her a prostitute. BECAUSE the MSM hates him. Here’s a link on the MSM - being taped - when they don’t know it.

well newbie.....your bravado certainly points to the fact that you need a lot of little pills just to get "up" for the task...usually with people like you, its the inability to actually DO things that makes you post like a big man, yeah right...

Fair enough, I can’t know what’s in a FReeper’s heart :)

I just don’t like to have marriage compared to prostitution - it’s a cynical take and while I think some use it that way, the vast majority don’t. When I think of some of the selfless and loving couples I have known over the year, and the great sacrifices they have made for each other, I get defensive of them.

I don’t need the little blue pills. Sounds like you’re speaking from your own personal experiences.

I read a lot of jealousy in your post. Must be sad to be so envious of others you have to put down someone just to feel good about yourself.

Just like in the days of the Clinton Administration, when you want the real news about American liberals in trouble, you have to go to the British press.

Caption: In trouble: Caldwell had been arrested on a DUI after driving his pickup into another vehicle outside a strip club in 2010 and failing a blood-alcohol test

Link to the entire article:

My take on it ... these guys pose as "progressives" because it gives them cover to behave as badly as they want. Role models: Bill Clinton, the Kennedys. What I still don't understand, and maybe you can help -- why did the Oregonian cover this at all? Did somebody inside the paper hate this guy? Was somebody else about to report it? Is there a single person in Oregon that believes that this 5'8" 245-pound strip-club-cruising slob only bought this girl some schoolbooks and didn't pay her any more money after that?

Sorry, that link to the Daily Mail again:

sorry for the family, but maybe it would be better to just admit that this viagra needing fat slob was an immoral pig who made life miserable for the whole family....
