Why is it just a little sexual fun when a Republican Senator uses a prostitute

BUT for the ACORN story it suddenly becomes "human trafficking"? Heck the Senator wasn't even asked to resign by the same people who are screaming about ACORN.

2. you are missing the point
it was not prostitution, it was CHILD prostitution involving underage immigrants.

fwiw, i'm FOR legalization of prostitution.

i am not for legalization of child sex rings.

BIG difference

4. There are dozens of republicans sexually involved with minors
does that mean the GOP should also be forced from the government.

5. except that is not
child sex trafficking.

if i have sex with a 16 yr old, that is a minor. it's also legal in my state.

if i am a pimp who pimps out 16 yr olds for sex that is child sex trafficking.

there are many 12 year olds involved. How is the GOP any less involved than ACORN? Oh wait, the GOP ones really happened.

8. is this what it's come down to?
"well other people do bad stuff too?"

no shit.

but ACORN receives federal funds and is apparently damn corrupt.

that doesn't take away from the fact that there are plenty of other scumbags around too.

when the corruption is as extensive as it is, congress was right to defund them.

nobody is saying ACORN is alone in corruption or child rape facilitation

9. How so? Unless this is corporate policy
it's an issue involving individual employess with bad judgment (there were more employees that turned them away and Philly even called the cops). So by your line of reasoning the GOP is corrupt and endorses sex with children, because there are many republicans that have done so.

10. it's the distinction between mal and misfeasance
if they cannot screen their personnel to the point where personnel will not routinely facilitate child sex pimps in breaking the law, and continuing their enterprise, then they don't deserve federal money.

it's that simple. the repeatability of these incidents is just too much for ACORN to explain away.

props to stewart for not playing the partisan apologist.

7. The people who shot the video...
were talking about bringing in young girls from El Salvador and pimping them out. That's a little different than someone (of any political stripe) getting sweaty with a hooker. Sorry if you can't see that.

15. The Johns are not the criminals, you see. The prostitutes are.
:sarcasm:

The Johns are having a little fun.

The prostitutes are breaking the law.

See?
