GOP Staffer Arrested for trying to have sex in panda costume with 15 yr old boy
Edited on Mon Jun-01-09 07:59 AM by JPZenger
Here's the latest from the party of traditional family values. A full-time staffer who served two Republican State Senators in Pennsylvania was arrested for trying to have sex with a 15 year old boy, while the guy wore a panda costume.

Police have not found the panda costume, but they have cat and wolf costumes in the guy's house. He was paid over %57K a year.

"A former legislative aide to now-retired Sen. Hal Mowery, R-Camp Hill, is accused of sexually propositioning a 15-year-old Harrisburg boy through Internet chats, including discussions about dressing up in animal costumes and engaging in various sex acts with the boy, state Attorney General Tom Corbett announced today. Alan David Berlin, 40, most recently a legislative aide to state Sen. Jane Clare Orie, R-Allegheny, used the Internet screen name, "alan_panda_bear," to chat with the boy in April and May, Corbett said. At one point during the chats, Berlin proposed traveling to the boy's home and having sex with him in the backyard while his parents were sleeping, Corbett said.

Berlin also requested nude photos of the boy and offered to get a hotel room if he could take pictures of the boy and another adult having sex, according to court papers. The boy's parents became concerned after discovering sexually graphic messages on their son's computer ...

Berlin was charged with unlawful contact with a minor, criminal attempted sexual exploitation of children, criminal solicitation to commit sexual abuse of children and criminal use of a computer."

21. Oh yes he does...
even an adult who looks at that face would run screaming.. only by looking like a fuzzy panda would you let him anywhere near you.

3. So how did the American Family Association come up with their list of 30 sexual "orientations"?
Did they just poll fundies and Republicans about what turns them on?

getting a position in the Republican Party. Who's keeping the list.

27. the first thing i thought of was the 'furries" episode of csi...and entourage.
all this time i thought that they were just kidding about such a sub-culture actually existing...
and i used to work as a 'costume character' at a local amusement park- i was 'billy the beaver' at the now defunct santa's village in east dundee illinois. but it never led to any erotic fantasies on my part- although wearing the costume was a great way to get away with 'copping a feel' every so often... :evilgrin:

I know he made a suit of one of the characters he draws, but that may just be a cosplay (google it) costuming thing (which he also dabbles in). From what I've seen there's nothing x-rated about that costume, but I've never actually asked. I figure that information is on a need-to-know basis, and sweet jesus, I don't need to know! :blush:

15. The costume kink is irrelevant, though it's the sort of thing the media latches onto...
Edited on Mon Jun-01-09 09:26 AM by JHB
...and certaily makes it easier to mock, but it's not really what this case is about.
If this were a matter of consenting adults, I'd say it was nobody's business.
But that's not the case here.

If the allegations are true, what we have here is a 40 year old (an adult by anybody's standard except Henry Hyde's) trying to coax/goad a minor below the age of consent into sexual acts and situations. And that's unacceptabl, and criminal ("Involuntary deviate sexual intercourse", if Wikipedia is accurate and I'm reading it right :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_North_A... )

30. For child molestation he should get the max., even 10 years.
For wearing the panda costume, three-sequential life sentences without possibility of parole.
