UN's Ritter faced sex rap
New York Daily News ^ | 1/19/03 | Joe Mahoney

Posted on 01/19/2003 1:15:49 AM PST by kattracks

ALBANY - Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter was secretly prosecuted in Albany County in 2001 after he was snared in an Internet sex sting operation, law enforcement sources told the Daily News.

Ritter, who lives in the Albany suburb of Delmar, is now a high-profile critic of President Bush's war preparations.

He was arrested by Colonie Police in June 2001 on a misdemeanor charge after he allegedly had a sexual discussion on the Internet with an undercover investigator he thought was an underage girl, law enforcement sources disclosed on condition of anonymity.

The case was sealed, and Colonie officials declined to release the arrest records, explaining the matter was adjourned in local court in contemplation of dismissal.

The Schenectady Daily Gazette reported yesterday that Albany District Attorney Paul Clyne fired veteran Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Preiser last week for failing to inform him of the case against Ritter.

Clyne said that as a "sensitive" case, it should have been brought to his attention.

Ritter, who has made frequent appearances on network television after speaking to the Iraq National Assembly last year, could not be reached for comment.

Could this have anything to do with Ritter suddenly becoming so chummy with Iraq?

It would also explain why he's been in meltdown mode all week. He knew this was about to come out.

I guess this means he's entering politics as a Democrat.

I'll bet he ends up claiming it is all a vast Bush conspiracy and he was framed.

A Marine pilot came through here a few months ago, and he brought up Ritter. "I wish that jerk would shut his yap---he is a disgrace to the Corps" he said.

Every Marine I have ever met filled me with awe--from their bearing to their physical fitness. Ritter always seemed to break that mold. One time, Ritter was on MSNBC, and he kept bringing up the "I'am a Marine fella! I don't want to see me fellow Marines hurt--you got that!" I beleive that real Marines don't need this empty suit to speak for them.

But--no fear--Ritter's friends in the Media will shut this up---just like they never said a lot about former DNC bigwig Bob Beckel calling a Prostitute to his Virginia home.

Nothing to see here folks----move along.

It explains why a foreign country - or countries- was able to recruit him. If he had a behavioral addiction like this and they found out some way by tempting him or through his Russian girl friend, he could be blackmailed to do anything they want, money or no money, although money may make it easier. And it would be easy for a country to find out if they monitored his computer communications, which shouldn't be hard with all the traveling has done.
