This is disturbing (Warning Child Abuse Content)
I know it has become a solid bet that anything the GOP is accusing us of is essentially a confession of their own wrongdoing.
But this is a new low and made me physically ill
Verastigui was part of a chat group involving at least 17 others who shared his interest in child pornography and abusing children that was investigated by the DOJ. This group included another Republican staffer, Trump Commerce Department official Adam Hageman, who was also charged last year with possession of child pornography. Upon his arrest, Hageman's phone contained at least 33 videos that appear to contain sexually explicit depictions of children, including of prepubescent children.
In the spring of 2020, defendant Adam Hageman joined a group devoted to trading child pornography and discussing sexually abusing children. There were 17 other members, several of which boasted about actively producing child pornography of children they had access to and then shared that content with the group. Not only did Hageman encourage others in the group to rape children and solicited them to share child pornography, but he also discussed his own sexual fantasies about children, expressing how much he was looking forward to the pandemic being over so that he could go to restaurants and parks and display his penis to kids. Hageman also said the youngest child he had had was 15 years old. And, he said he needed to start crossing fantasies off his list, asking for someone to find a dad with a young child they would be willing to rent out to the group. Hageman is a danger to the community and should be detained pending trial in this case.
All child sexualization is wrong but I do think that there are degrees of evil. I think we can agree that raping babies and renting kids for sex fantasies pretty much blows the top off the chart.
These people are seriously fucked in the head.
And for what it is worth, the jail sentence is about a quarter of what it should be.
to live in a world where this happens
Too horrible. Too painful.
Instead I will recommit to justice and equality and dignity for all.
her/him legally...think about that. The GOP is the party of pedophiles and sex traffickers.
