Your daily Perv

Because a day without a Republican sex scandal is like a day without ... air! Oh, my. The latest one to dance up and join the ever-growing Conga Line of Lechery that is disgraced Republican perverts is a federal prosecutor from Florida. It's safe to say he's a Republican since the Bush administration stacked the prosecutors' offices with their buddies -- remember the "prosecutor purge"? This one was caught in a *(gag)* child sex sting:

"A federal prosecutor from Florida was ordered held in custody Monday after he appeared in U.S. District Court in Detroit on a charge that he flew to Detroit intending to have sex with a 5-year-old girl.

John David R. Atchison, 53, of Gulf Breeze, Fla., an assistant U.S. Attorney in Florida's northern district, is expected to appear again in court for a detention hearing on Tuesday.

He was caught in an Internet child sex sting run by the Macomb County Sheriff's Department and the FBI and arrested Sunday when he flew into Detroit Metropolitan Airport from Pensacola, Fla., according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Detroit."

He made online arrangements with a Sheriff's deputy posing as a mother looking to pimp out her kids. And get a load of this:

"According to the complaint, Atchison reassured the sheriff's deputy who was posing as the child's mother that he would not hurt the 5-year-old because he goes "slow and easy," and "I've done it plenty.""

"I've done it plenty"?? Oh fuck, get me a barf bag. Hey, I wonder if this will come up at the so-called "Values voters debate" the wingnuts are having tonight? It's even in Florida, how convenient!

EDIT: He's a Republican, all right. Surprise!

EDIT #2: This guy says he's a Rethug, according to his election records. And let's face it, if he was a Dem, we'd probably know it by now. (Fox News doesn't mention his party affiliation, which they almost certainly would if he was a Dem.) D'oh!

EDIT #3: He's been added to the burgeoning list of Republican Sex Offenders.
