Nebraska Senator Bill Kintner: Porn Star?

Remember the furor over Hillary and her emails? Did she send them on a private  server? Get them on a private server? Read and forward them on a private server? Remember how the GP went nuts about that?

All that makes me wonder why most of them are so silent about this …

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts is urging — when he should be demanding — the resignation of state Senator Bill Kintner after allegations arose that Kintner made, and exchanged, a sexually explicit video of himself using his state computer.

Apparently last summer — yes, a year ago now — Kintner asked the Nebraska State Patrol for help with computer problems, for "what he believed to be a potential internet scam that occurred while [he] was in Massachusetts using his state computer." And that’s when the patrol found the homemade porn starring Bill Kintner.

The patrol turned over its investigation to the Accountability and Disclosure Commission last November, and now, nearly a year later ADC Director Frank Daley, who declined to comment further, said the commission is expected to weigh in during a meeting this week.

No wonder nothing gets done. It’s taken a year to look at the porn, investigate the porn, find that the porn was made and distributed by a government official on a government computer.

And Governor Ricketts isn’t so clean either; he allegedly learned of the investigation "shortly after" Kintner contacted the State Patrol last summer. In fact, Ricketts says he spoke by phone to Kintner last summer and urged him to resign if the allegations were true. Ricketts now says he was forced to keep mum while the investigation was ongoing.

The year-long investigation.

Investigators haven't described the video or said whether a permanent copy was ever obtained, but another state senator, Bob Krist, said he contacted the State Patrol last fall — again, almost a year ago — after a woman offered to sell a “sexually explicit” video of Kintner.

In an interesting twist, Bill Kintner has been married for about seven years to Lauren Kintner, Governor Ricketts’ chief policy adviser; and that may explain why Nebraska Democrats are denouncing Ricketts for his handling of the situation:
"It is not enough for Sen. Kintner to resign in shame. Anyone that knew this information and continued to let him sit in office must also resign. Did Governor Ricketts or his staff look the other way so they had [Kintner's] vote in the Unicameral?" — Jane Kleeb, chairwoman-elect of the Nebraska Democratic Party
Of course it makes perfect sense that Bill Kintner is considered one of the Nebraska Legislature's most conservative senators who says his parents taught him “the moral absolutes of Christianity, and I just applied those to everything."

Well, except The Gays, undocumented immigrants and his own porn-making abilities.

Kintner says that women are life’s greatest mystery because “no one understands them. They don't even understand themselves.”

He once likened his fellow senators to monkeys; he is staunchly anti-LGBT and has opposed same-sex marriage, gay adoption, and transgender rights. And he is one of those elected officials who think Christians should let The Gays know that their business isn’t welcome by providing them with “bad service.”

Last year, when arguing against a path to citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants, Kintner called the immigrants “wetbacks;” a class of fourth graders was in the senate chamber at the time. And in June of 2015 Kintner posted a photo of a beheaded woman on Facebook to express his support for the death penalty.

It seems Bill Kintner has an opinion on everything except his own amateur porn career because, on that topic, he’s not talking.

Go figure. It’s the typical GOP hypocrisy; we’ll investigate and investigate and investigate the Democrats but one of our own? Keep him around because we need his vote … unless this gets real ugly, then, and only then, will we throw him under a bus.

Please, please tell me that the guy in the picture is not Bill Kintner, because if that's Bill, and he's doing home porn, who in the hell can be looking at it? Republicans with wide stances?

Should there not have been a tearful "I have sinned!" moment? (Translation = "Aw shit! I've been found out!")

I'm waiting for him to say the devil made him do it and God is testing him. What an ass and what a party!

Women understand women; they don't want anything to do with men like Kintner
