Guilty on 4 counts -wingnut 2000 dirty trickster CRAMER -walks on 9 counts
This would be the perv who had a website, "Aretino Industries" or somesuch, flaunting his pervism through the Renaissance dude, Pietro ARETINO. This was about a proto-Swiftbotting t.v. commercial in 2000, mimicking the 1964 nuclear Daisy one, smearing CLINTON-GORE of giving technology to the Chinese. He refused to reveal who his 22 donors were. Mama Karen HUGHES and KKKarl claimed he was not connected to the Shrub campaign, however, it took a phone call from KKKarl to get CRAMER to withdraw the ad after it ran one day.

Four counts. More than likely there will be appeals. And he *does* have friends in high places... Hmmm...

Cramer found guilty on 4 of 13 charges

EDINBURG Political consultant Carey Lee Cramer was convicted Tuesday of four sexual assault charges involving children.

Cramer, 44, of Tucson, Ariz., was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child, two counts of indecency with a child by contact and one count of indecency with a child by exposure.

The jury cleared Cramer of nine other first- and second-degree counts.

In 2000, Cramer gained national attention after he produced an anti-Al Gore television ad accusing the Clinton-Gore administration of giving nuclear technology to China in return for campaign contributions. Cramers well-known commercial showed a young girl picking daisy petals and ends with a nuclear blast, a remake of a 1964 ad by Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnsons campaign against Republican Barry Goldwater. ....

.... A Texas-based nonprofit organization, Aretino Industries, paid for the new commercial, which will run in several closely contested states, including Ohio, Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania.

Carey Cramer, a spokesman for the organization, in McAllen, Tex., declined to identify any of its members or the source of its money.

"These are people with real life jobs and they don't want to lose their jobs," said Mr. Cramer, who said the group was formed to produce political commercials in this campaign and to bring "accountability" to politics.

Mr. Cramer said the initial advertisement buy was for $60,000, which is considered small by current political standards. He said that the group has raised $500,000 to buy more time.

"It's an ad that is so inflammatory that it gets free news access," said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, dean of the Annenberg School of Communication.

"This is a heavy-handed ad," Ms. Jamieson said. "It lacks the subtlety of the original ad, it is not factually accurate and, if anything, it risks that the press coverage over it will produce a backlash against the Bush campaign." ....

(& Pietro ARETINO himself, by Titian: )

Pietro Aretino and his Sixteen Postures, 1524

The career break of Pietro Aretino (1492-1556) came when he wrote a mock last will and testament in 1516 for Pope Leo X's pet elephant, Hanno, complete with bequeathing the beast's genitals to one of the lustier cardinals. From then on, he became infamous in Italy as one of the lewdest and wittiest writers, the Renaissance mouth that roared.

In 1524, Aretino wrote sonnets to accompany the drawings of sixteen sexual positions by Giuliano Romano, Raphael's talented twenty-five-year-old pupil. Their collaboration produced one of history's most notorious works of erotic art.

Casanova in his memoirs mentions spending New Year's Eve 1753 with a nun doing Aretino's "straight tree" position, which he says featured the man standing and holding the woman upside-down for mutual oral sex. ....
