Former Trump campaign co-chair charged with sex abuse

I used to be a newspaper editor and one of our specialties was running stories about arch-conservative people who get caught doing bad things things along the lines of that which they try to pass laws to prevent other people from lawfully doing in normal, everyday ways.

Adultery? Prostitutes regularly report that business is remarkably better (yet far worse tippers) in cities that host the Republican National Convention, rather than the Democratic one.

Child enticement? I could’ve run a newsletter all these years highlighting nothing but notable right-wingers who’ve been caught on “To Catch A Predator” or exposed some other way.

Homosexual trysts and orgies? Oh, man. I witnessed over the years literally (correct use of the word literally, BTW) nearly every male leader of nearly every anti-homosexual group that’s appeared over the years, getting arrested as those leaders have been caught in either male prostitution stings or drug-fueled orgies in some location that catches the attention of law enforcement.

I’ve said it a thousand times, I’ll bet: if a person is so obsessed that they need to make a living telling others what to do sexually, chances are that person is doing (and ashamed of) the very thing they are trying to fight.

Take Donald Trump’s former statewide campaign co-chair down in Alabama:

A former Alabama legislator who served as a co-chair of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign in the state has been arrested and charged with first-degree sex abuse, police confirmed Wednesday.

The incident that Perry Hooper Jr. is charged with happened on Aug. 16 in the 100 block of Commerce St., which is the address of the Hampton Inn & Suites Montgomery-Downtown.

Hooper, 67, was arrested Tuesday, said Capt. Saba Coleman, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery Police Department. He was booked into the Montgomery County Detention Facility and his bond set at $15,000. But there were no details about what Hooper is alleged to have done posted on the jail website.

Ahh, the the Hampton Inn & Suites — always a fine location for right-wingers to get caught illegally dipping their chicken tenders in secret sauce.

Perry Hooper, Jr.
