This one is a real doozy. Ex-Representative Keith Farnham has been arrested for distributing child pornography. The Illinois Democrat used an alias in online sex rooms and reportedly bragged about the fact that he had sexually abused a six-year-old girl.
Farnham originally attempted to deny the charges, but incriminating evidence found on his computer left no question of his guilt. He is now mulling over a plea deal which he has until his next court date in September to accept.
The 66-year-old has been placed on strict house arrest. He is not even allowed to use his own patio, as the court is dong it’s best to make absolutely certain that he does not come into contact with any children.
Farnham resigned from his position shortly after U.S. Immigration and Customs officers raided his home and confiscated his computer. He sited health reasons for his retirement.
If convicted, this pedophile will face up to 10 years in prison.
What is it with politicians abusing their power? Let’s hope Farnham gets thrown in prison and issued a bit of justice from his fellow inmates. I hear they don’t take too kindly to pedophiles in Sing Sing.
