In my portion of the Left Coast of America, a San Francisco bay area talk show host, Bernie Ward, was indicted for child porn:
SAN FRANCISCO (Map, News) - San Francisco radio talk show host Bernie Ward has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of using the Internet to send and receive child pornography, his lawyer said today.
The indictment is under seal, but the charges were confirmed by Ward's lawyer, Doron Weinberg, and by his employer, KGO radio.
Weinberg said Ward, 56, pleaded not guilty to the indictment before a federal magistrate in San Francisco today.
Ward is a "famous" Left Wing talk show host in quite liberal San Francisco, a former Catholic Franciscan priest, whose attorney says:
Weinberg said the case stems from an "error of judgment" Ward made when he spent a few days in 2004 looking at pornography images and exchanging images with other adults when doing research for a book on hypocrisy.
As SNL's Church Lady once said: "Isn't that conveeeeeeeee-nient!"
Moreover, it's now political and the fault of President Bush -- who else?
If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, has child porn like a duck, is a former Catholic priest like a duck, what might one reasonably conclude? Politics? Or logic? Too far?
