Another Republican sex scandal ignored by the media

On Tuesday Sept. 18 we reported that a Republican federal prosecutor –John David R. Atchinson--was criminally charged with “allegedly” paying for sex with a five year old girl.

Now the covers are pulled off another of these extremist Republican neo-cons. Donald Fleischman, the 37 year old Republican chairman of Brown County Wisconsin faces criminal charges for “allegedly” fondling a 16 year old runaway boy. Fleischman has been charged with two counts of child enticement, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child, and a single charge of exposing himself to a child.

In November 2006 Police went to Fleischman’s home searching for two runaway boys. The officers found a glass pipe in the living room (which tested positive for marijuana residue) and a 16-year-old boy wearing only his underwear hiding in a closet. In Dec. 2006 the police found the boy at Fleischman’s home again.

The boy now 17 told authorities that the Republican chairman provided him with drugs (beer and marijuana). The boy told authorities that Fleischman fondled him and once he woke up and saw Fleischman masturbating next to his bed.

Amazingly, the very same American Corporate Media who headlined every detail for weeks (if not months) of Bill Clinton’s consensual sexual liason with another adult woman, has been IGNORING this story. It appears that it is not newsworthy if a Republican is caught and prosecuted for “allegedly” raping children.

If the Corporate Media gave the same coverage to the numerous child sex scandals of the Republicans we would no longer want these Republicans in powerful positions preying on our children.

It just goes to show that the notion that Republicans can make us safe and secure is a myth.
