Convicted Sex Offender
Elected to Virginia Senate

Original Article

One of the many Democrats elected to the Virginia Senate on Tuesday is a convicted sex offender and disbarred lawyer, according to Breitbart. Joe Morrissey was jailed and lost his license to practice law after being convicted of having sex with his 17-year-old secretary. He pled guilty to a misdemeanor in the ensuing court case and served for only three months in a “work-release term.” He was also forced to resign from his seat in the Virginia House of Delegates, but then ran again in the special election to retake the seat and was re-elected. Morrissey then went on to marry the girl in 2016, and she

Roy Moore’s problem was not having this (D) in front of his name. Otherwise, he’d be in the senate now.

She was 17? Really? He did not rape her. I'd claim that laws setting the age of consent as 18 are anachronistic but throughout much of our history women were freely allowed to marry by 16 and many were mothers by 17. That said I am not a fan of pre-marital sex from a morality point of view but it is hardly a criminal act - just sinful.

"There's no fool like an old fool" . . . oh yes there is, it's a young fool who has sex with, then marries him and has his children! Maybe those two want the same man to be their children's father and a grandfather simultaneously, if he can manage to live that long . . . or maybe he is a father figure to the young bride, which would be an incestuous relationship. In any situation, a lot of good fortune must come there way for the sake of the children. (to quote Nancy Pelosi)

#2 - If having sex with a 16 year old girl is against the law, and you do it - it most certainly is a criminal act. Your opinion of the law is irrelevant.

By the way this guy is 62. Now as I recall there was a whole lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth about Roy Moore who dated 18 yr olds when he was late 20's early 30's. Talk about double standards. Roy was single and looking for a wife and did in fact marry a woman who was over 10 yrs younger than he was in 1985 and is still married to her. Now I said at the time I know a number of men who have married younger women and I even know of a few women who have married younger men but if you have an R next to your name somehow that is perverted but if it is a D it is perfectly OK even when the girl is underaged. As a matter of fact the democrats like them at 12 to 14 on the Lolita express but then that is a whole other story isn't it?

This is the proof that too many morons in my home state and elsewhere have no clue who they're voting for. They're simply a bunch of lemmings blindly pulling the lever for anything that has a D next to it. My hope is that the Virginia Rats, in their hubris, seriously overreach, opening enough eyes to flip the legislature two years from now. But given the abject stupidity displayed by me fellow Virginia voters in recent years, I wouldn't put good money on that. I may have to cast an eye on a Florida residency instead.

#23 and 24, I lived in Loudoun County for 24 years and left two years ago for very red South Carolina. The1996 elections occurred a year or so after I moved to VA and not a single polling place in Loudoun County was won by Clinton. Then the government exploded and the new bureaucrats moved in and then all of the immigrants, legal and illegal, swarmed into Eastern Loudoun. Now the county is solid blue until you get out west of Leesburg. I love Virginia but could no longer stand the leftward swing and the proximity to DC.

The lady he married worked for him she was 17, her father is the one who had him prosecuted because she was underage. Now he’s back courtesy of the Democrat voters.

Ocasio-Cortez raked in $1.42 million between July 1 and September 30, outstripping Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), who raised $1.26 million over the same period, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), who raised $1.26 million, the New York Post first reported.

In Polar Express (2004), Tom Hanks kept urging “Believe!” without specifying what to believe in. Some of that same damnable over-secularization threatens to ruin Hanks’s new film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Hanks plays Fred Rogers, creator and host of the TV series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (aired 1966–2001 on public broadcasting), which taught life lessons to children. The movie re-creates those homilies by artificially re-creating scenes of the show’s videotape and alternating them with the real-life story of optimistic Rogers (Hanks) being interviewed by cynical journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys). Director Marielle Heller attempts a sensitive, almost spiritual evocation.

Officially, the Trump White House is still deciding whether or not to send a lawyer to the House judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearings next week. Unofficially, party insiders and observers say the decision has been all but made to continue stonewalling. Instead, they will follow the playbook of recent House Intelligence Committee hearings, when the White House refused to cooperate and instead used Trump loyalists on the committee to mount its defense. It is a strategy designed to maintain a status quo that would ensure a vote in the Senate against removing the president. And the strategy has so far kept the American public from shifting decisively in favor of impeachment.

The purpose of this set of hearings is to craft Articles of Impeachment to be voted on by the entire House. One difference from the previous hearings that Democrats are touting is that in the Judiciary the White House can participate. It absolutely should not.

The recent sad spectacle of the impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives is but the latest example of the disdain the political Left shows for both substance and process in a quest for power. If the current crop of Democratic presidential hopefuls is any indication, that power will be exercised by pursuing divisive and destructive policies that will hurt America for generations. But excoriating those policies will require volumes best authored elsewhere. Consider first the impeachment circus. Whether the “high crime” is called quid pro quo, extortion, or bribery, the premise is fundamentally flawed.

Immigrants are what make America great. They should also run our foreign policy.

And this is what, for me, really does make America great.” Immigration, according to Hill, is the “essence of America.” Hill’s comment was in response to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) asking for her opinion about the criticism of Lt.

The Justice Department’s inspector general this month reprimanded the FBI for the manner in which it recruits and supervises its “confidential human sources.” To the layman, this seems about technicalities. In fact, it shows that one of the CIA’s deadliest dysfunctions now infects the FBI as well. This disease consists of choosing and rejecting sources for the purpose of indulging the agencies’ and their leaders’ private agendas rather than to further intelligence work on the public’s behalf. Necessarily, the language of the inspector general’s November 19 report is vague: “Ineffective management and oversight of confidential sources.”

I have repeatedly questioned the validity of medical journal claims in regards to politically charged issues like air pollution and climate change, as well as global warming here at AT. More recently, I showed how a major medical journal violates basic rules on scientific inquiry. There is another important problem with medical research as reported in medical journals and then often expanded by the lay press as big news: that medical journal articles are often proven wrong for unreliable results or promotion of treatments that are not beneficial or not any more efficacious than treatments they propose to replace.

When they plunged forward on their ill-fated impeachment voyage, they were destined to land on this surreal shore, even if their parade of bureaucratic interagency cheerleaders was even weaker than presumed. So they are in the bad place that can't be washed away with a few margaritas. They desperately want to impeach President Donald Trump, but they don't want to send this partisan presumption pile over to the Senate, where they can no longer control the list of witnesses, where hearsay will be inadmissible, and where narrative control swings to the Republicans.
