The Campaign For DA


There Better Be Somthing To This

Or Matt Drudge becomes nothing more than a political hack (assuming he's not reached that status already.)

He always follows up the "Developing . . . " headline (which I normally love) to a story he writes himself - something that is very rare. But if he throws out crap like this, he better be right.

To salvage his prestige, Edwards should borrow a famous presidential quotation: "I did not have sex with that woman!"

That will surely salvage his marriage and keep his visibility out there, just like that other guy campaigning for his wife.

Thanks, Barry, for taking the high road on your blog and not stooping to producing trash to keep people interested.

We have enough hate from other bloggers and political mongers as it is.

I swear, I thought that was you for a second, Barry. Mr. Edwards looks a lot like the 31 year old Asst. DA Barry Green.

Did you "have sex with that woman??" Oh dear....ho, ho, ho.....;)

Beware of the Clinton Machine. Get in their way and you will be destroyed. They float the story of Obambi selling cocaine, trash all of Bill's bimbos and whoever else gets in the way. Deny, Delay and Destroy. It's the pig in a pants suit way of marching back to the White House. Be scared, be very scared.

Dennis Kucinech does not want to start leading in the polls or it will be reported that he is having sex with aliens even though he already is. The Clintons just had his brother snuffed.

Barry you're such a partisan hack. I don't hear you insist that left wing blogs better have it right. Double standard lying hypocrit Demwit. And the story is in the Enquirer. Drudge is just providing background. Looks like Edwards has the same alley cat morals as Clinton, Jesse Jackass,and Cisneros to name a few.

Hey 2:21.

At least Edwards is allegedly pursuing members of the opposite sex in a decent fashion. He's Not desperately seeking same-sex-lovin' in a airport bathroom stall, a style suited for repressed republicans.

3:31, Does the name Barney Frank ring a bell? You must remember him. His male roomate was caught running a gay prostitute ring out of his house.

Quibble said...

How about Democrat superstar and presidential candidate, Gary Hart? He bowed out of his campaign in a hurry when the lurid pics came out showing him and his playmate on his boat. At least, so far, Edwards may have been smart enough not to have anyone taking videos. We are sure to hear more of this of Hillary and Bill's biggest contributors owns the Enquirer. Does anyone think the Clintons didn't have a hand in getting the story out there?

James Dale Guckert (born 1957) worked under the pseudonym Jeff Gannon as a White House reporter between 2003 and 2005 , representing the virtual organization Talon News.

Gannon first gained national attention during a presidential press conference on January 26, 2005, in which he asked United States President George W. Bush a question that some in the press corps considered "so friendly it might have been planted."[1] Gannon stated that this question was not meant to be friendly, but to expose the hypocrisy of the left.[citation needed]

Gannon then came under public scrutiny, in particular for his lack of a significant journalistic background prior to his work with Talon[2][3] and his alleged involvement with various homosexual escort service websites using the professional name Bulldog, he resigned from Talon News on February 8, 2005. Continuing to use the name Gannon, he has since created his own official homepage and worked for a time as a columnist for the Washington Blade newspaper, where he came out as gay.[4]

Gannon routinely obtained daily passes to White House briefings. He attended four Bush press conferences and appeared regularly at White House press briefings. Although he did not qualify for a Congressional press pass, Gannon was given daily passes to White House press briefings "after supplying his real name, date of birth and Social Security number."[5]

Gannon currently operates a blog,, on which he criticizes perceived double standards used by both the "Old Media" and the "Angry Gay Left."[6] He recently published a book entitled, "The Great Media War."

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A 78-year-old retired schoolteacher is coming forward after years of silence to claim she is the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of the late Sen. Strom Thurmond, her attorney said Saturday.

Essie Mae Washington-Williams, who lives in Los Angeles, had long been rumored to be the daughter of the one-time segregationist, who died June 26 at the age of 100. She is coming forward now at the urging and encouragement of her children, attorney Frank K. Wheaton said.

New molestation allegation dogs arrested conservative activist
Thursday, September 28, 2006 - 3:00 pm

Nielsen: It's raining boys. Photo by Jack Gould Things have been looking up for accused child molester Jeffrey Ray Nielsen, the 36-year-old Christian conservative activist and lawyer with close ties to Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and Scott Baugh, head of the Orange County Republican Party. Police say Nielsen took a 14-year-old Westminster boy as his sex partner in 2003 and maintained a huge cache of man-boy pornography.

But prosecutors have allowed their case against Nielsen, once an intern in the district attorney’s office, to stall for 40 months.

Ironically, those delays have provoked new sex-crime allegations. Saying he fears a subversion of justice, a northern Virginia man claims that Nielsen repeatedly molested him when he was an adolescent.

“For two years, when I was 13 and 14 years old, Jeff sexually abused me while he worked in Washington for Rohrabacher as a legislative aide,” the 25-year-old married man told the Weekly in a recent interview. “There was never any penetration, but other than that? Everything. He wrapped it all up as normal, as love.”

Paul S. Meyer, Nielsen’s Costa Mesa-based defense attorney, did not respond to requests for comment.

The Virginia man, who asked to remain anonymous, said Nielsen worked in his church’s youth ministry and that his parents rented Nielsen a basement room in their home sometime in 1994 or 1995.

“Jeff took an immediate liking to me,” he said. “When he moved into our house, [the sex] started right away. I know this might sound weird, but at the time he was a mentor and he assured me the messing around was normal. I believed him. I was in the seventh grade at the time. It was brainwashing.”

He says Nielsen orchestrated a “boyfriend-girlfriend type” relationship that included occasional public kissing, hand holding and sex.

“Jeff called it ‘our thing,’ and one time we were near Tyson’s Corner [Virginia], he stopped at a gas station so we could have sex in the bathroom,” the man said. “A guy walked in and caught me with my pants down and Jeff on his knees. We made some excuse about an injured knee or something. The guy said, ‘Oh!’ and quickly left.”

There was also jealousy when the boy expressed an interest in girls, according to the victim.

“[Nielsen] was very controlling and emotional,” he said. “After sex, he’d sometimes say, ‘You know you are gay, right?’ But I wasn’t. I’ve been married now for three years and have a great relationship with my wife. I am very much heterosexual.”

The abuse stopped, according to the man, when Nielsen moved back to California to attend USC law school after receiving a personal recommendation from Congressman Rohrabacher.

“When he was leaving, he asked me why I wasn’t crying,” the man said. “I was so relieved that he would finally be gone.”

In the unresolved 2003 Orange County case, police say Nielsen, then 33 years old, in the closet and a lawyer at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, started dating a high school freshman at Westminster High School. Based in part on confiscated correspondence, police allege that Nielsen romanced the boy. He took him to dinner and gave him flowers, cops say. They also claim Nielsen repeatedly used the minor for oral and anal sex at his Ladera Ranch townhome and at the boy’s Westminster residence while his mother was at work.

During years of preliminary hearings after his arrest, Nielsen has shown little outward anxiety about the case. He’s routinely smiled and giggled in court with his father, Ben Nielsen, the former Republican mayor of Fountain Valley. To friends, Nielsen blamed the boy for seducing him after they met in an online gay chat room. He’s also told friends that the charges would be reduced or dismissed if the Weekly, which has attended dozens of hearings, would follow the lead of The Orange County Register and ignore the case. (In fact, the Reg favorably mentioned Nielsen in September 2005 without telling readers that he’s an accused child molester.) In an April 2005 e-mail to his friends, Nielsen encouraged them not to cooperate with the Weekly’s investigation into the charges. Nielsen’s well-connected friends have strenuously lobbied this paper not to profile their pal.

This newest allegation won’t surprise law enforcement. After Nielsen’s arrest, two other East Coast men told authorities that as young teens they’d also witnessed Nielsen’s conduct with boys. Their observations led authorities to the Virginia man. Two years ago, a DA’s investigator called to ask if he’d been abused.

“I denied it,” he said. “I was scared. I didn’t want my parents to know. It happened right under their noses. They’d blame themselves for letting Jeff in our house, and I didn’t want that.”

So why is he stepping forward now?

“It’s hard to believe nothing has happened to Jeff after what he’s done,” he said. “He’s free and he still has his [law] license.”

A trial is now scheduled for Oct. 16, though the date could be meaningless. The case has been postponed dozens of times, a fact that must delight Nielsen and Meyer, one of the county’s savviest defense lawyers. A jury won’t see a 14-year-old victim testify; they’ll see someone who is older than 17.

District Attorney Tony Rackauckas says he was unaware of the delays, and finds them frustrating.

“Frankly, 40 months [without a trial] is outrageous,” said Rackauckas, who said he has asked his staff for an explanation. “It’s valid for people on the outside to question what’s happened here. There’s no excuse for delaying this anymore.”
