Yesterday I posted about the sixty-something year old Republican judge in Alabama who sent nude pictures of himself, along with sexually suggestive messages, to a woman who was not his wife of forty years — see post HERE. And I wondered then about Republicans and conservatives and religious zealots being all kinds of perverted and, well, this morning I’m still wondering …
The Republican mayor of Stockton, California, Anthony Silva, was arrested last week at his Stockton youth camp at Silver Lake on multiple charges including secretly recording a male teenager playing a game of strip poker at the summer camp.
Mayor Silva is charged with eavesdropping or recording confidential communications, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, providing alcohol to a minor and cruelty to a child by endangering his health.
The incidents leading to the Silva’s arrest occurred between August 5th and 9th, 2015 which begs the question … WHAT TOOK SO LONG? It took a year to gather the evidence? What? WHAT???
Well, actually Silva was arrested for being a pervert after a year-long FBI investigation that resulted from Silva’s cell phone being seized by Homeland Security at San Francisco International Airport as he got off a flight from China.
Yeah, it appears they were looking at the mayor for something else and found his stash of kiddie porn. And one of the clips on Silva’s phone contained audio of several people — including a 16-year-old boy — during a strip poker game in Mayor Silva’s bedroom; the audio revealed that the participants in the poker game did not want to be recorded; there was no video on the clip.
According to the Amador County district attorney, witnesses have come forward to say that Silva supplied alcohol to a number of underage counselors at the camp as well.
“He absolutely maintains his innocence, and he’s looking forward to his day in court and he absolutely believes he will be vindicated.” — Silva’s attorney Allen Sawyer
But, and ain’t there always a but, this isn’t the first time Silva has been accused of secretly filming teens. When he was a high school water polo coach in 2004, Silva was accused of secretly taping teens in the bathroom of his apartment; charges were never filed in that case.
In addition Mayor Silva is also facing legal trouble after a gun stolen from his rental home in 2015 was used in two crimes, including the murder of a 13-year-old boy. A gun-toting Republican pervert who serves alcohol to teenage boys while playing strip poker with them; yeah, he’s a winner, isn’t he?
And speaking of Republican perverts — which is kind of redundant — Richard "Scott" Silverthorne, the mayor of Fairfax, Virginia, has been arrested after he ALLEGEDLY gave methamphetamine to an undercover detective in exchange for a sexual encounter.
Police in late July received a tip that Silverthorne may have been trading meth for sex on a website used to arrange casual sexual encounters between men.
Oh wait, the Republican is a closeted, meth trading homosexual? It seems so, because after an undercover detective created a profile on the website, Silverthorne contacted him almost immediately and told the detective he could provide meth "in exchange for sexual encounters." He even promised to bring other men along with the drugs.
When Silverthorne showed up at the Chain Bridge Road hotel — ironic, since he’ll probably end up on a chain gang — along with the meth, he was arrested and charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Authorities said they don't know how long Silverthorne was on the website—which they did identify—but they did say that Silverthorne had once been a substitute teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools before being “let go.”
Lovely … now, I am not saying that if you're a Republican, that automatically means you send nude pictures to women you don’t know, and I’m not saying that if you’re Republican you automatically get young boys drunk and record them playing strip poker in your bedroom at a youth camp, and I’m not saying that if you are a Republican that automatically means you trade drugs for sex with ransom men on the internet.
I’m just saying …
