Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 20, 2017

That doughnut assault is among the many awful moments described in a damning independent report released last night by Judge Ronald Swanson, who found probable cause that [Republican Florida state Sen. Jack] Latvala had repeatedly inappropriately touched and made lewd comments to [aide Rachel] Perrin Rogers. Swanson also spoke to another woman -- the seventh who has now accused Latvala of inappropriate behavior -- who provided texts showing Latvala suggesting he'd trade his vote in exchange for sex with her. The judge recommended a criminal probe into the senator.

Facing a public corruption investigation and possible expulsion from the Florida Senate, Jack Latvala resigned Wednesday, a day after a retired judge concluded that he likely violated state corruption laws by trading legislative favors for physical contact and for sexually harassing and groping multiple women.

The stupidity of offering his vote for sex in a text is beyond belief. This guy isn't just a perve but also a dunce.

Wow, this guy's constituency was close to my old neighborhood. Unexpected, but glad that the multiple women he targeted with unwelcome advances went public.

The article calls him a "Gubernatorial candidate" but let she be honest: the race will be between Adam Putnam and John Morgan/Gwen Graham.

He may be looking at prison for what he did.

I've waited so long baby
Now that we're friends
Every man's got his patience
And here's where mine ends
I want your sex vote.

Exactly and why the judge "recommended" a criminal probe. Offering to sell his vote for Sex - what a moron.

Throw him in jail.

But, the more interesting part is how do you grope someone's midsection? That's the dumbest phrase I've ever heard. Did he poke it like the Pillsbury Dough Boy? Did he rub it in a circle while patting her head? Did he pinch her stomach? Did they mean he groped her ass, since that is near the middle of our bodies? If so, why not just say something that is more identifying? "Groping" a midsection is just a dumb way to report the act.

He's low level so you say this.

But when it comes to Trump, its the exact opposite.
