Repugnant

Another GOP scandal, this one involving the aide to the Republican Chair of Orange County, CA molesting boys.

A former GOP congressional aide has pleaded guilty to molesting two male teens, including the 13-year-old son of a family with whom the staffer lived while working on Capitol Hill.

37-year-old Jeffrey Ray Nielsen, who has worked previously for Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), as well the Republican chair of California’s Orange County, agreed to two felony counts of lewd acts upon a child, reports the Associated Press. A jury had deadlocked at an earlier trial this year — in which Nielsen was accused of engaging in sexual acts with a 14-year-old boy he met on the internet — and prosecutors were prepared to bring additional charges in a retrial.

The plea deal is expected to bring a sentence of three years in state prison, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Your Moral Majority at work, folks.

    This has been brewing for years — the OC GOP closed ranks around the guy and protected him until the very end. Our California Democrats suck, but our Republicans are much, much worse.

    Is someone keeping a master list of GOP members who are outed as 1.) gay (especially when they are extremely anti-gay politically), 2.) child molesters, 3.) both? I can’t keep track.
