Family Values Candidate Eric Bodenweiser Arrested In Delaware For Allegedly Repeatedly Raping Young Boy

This is Eric Bodenweiser, Republican candidate for the Delaware State Senate and anti-gay member of the Delaware Family Policy Council. Bodenweiser, 53, was viewed as unbeatable in the race against his Democratic challenger right up to the time the family values candidate was arrested for allegedly having unlawful sex acts with a 13-year-old boy.


Bodenweiser is facing 113 felony sex charges, including 39 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse — first-degree and 74 counts of unlawful sexual contact — second-degree. The boy who allegedly was sexually abused by Bodenweiser between Oct. 1, 1987 and Aug. 31, 1990 when he was between the ages of 10 and 13. The victim is now in his 30s.

Bodenweiser was endorsed in his State Senate race by Christine O’Donnell, the 2010 Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Delaware. O’Donnell, who was ridiculed for once saying that she dabbled in witchcraft, now has found someone more controversial than herself. O’Donnell came to the defense of Bodenweiser:

CHRISTINE O’DONNELL: That’s why these sort of, charges are so, are so, potent as political weapons because they put a seed of doubt in someone’s mind. If you do it as an October surprise there’s not enough time between when they throw the bomb on election day for the truth to really emerge and, um, it’s just, it’s tacky and it’s what happened to our political system.

Bodenweiser had won an upset against the incumbent Republican with the help of the Tea Party. O’Donnell cites his victory as an encouragement for her to run again with the resurgence of conservative values and agreed to campaign for him. In what could be a much repeated statement by Bodenweiser at the time, the candidate stated “I asked Christine to speak at my fundraiser because I consider her a friend and we hold the same principles and values. She has been the top vote getter in Sussex County over the past four years. Her record in Sussex County proves it. Hopefully, some of her ability to win votes will rub off on me.”

Bodenweiser pledged that, when he took office, he would “weed out the liberals” and expose them by introducing ultraconservative legislation.

Bodenweiser helped run his family’s business Bodie’s Dairy Markets, a chain of six local convenience stores and Laundromats. The chain was sold in 2001. His campaign website touted how he was an active middle school mentor. According to news reports, Bodenweiser was a mentor for children at Georgetown Middle School and North Georgetown Elementary School.

If convicted, such access to children could be cited to increase sentencing for Bodenweister. Given the repeated alleged abuse over a long period of time, he would be looking at a considerable sentence — enough to put him behind bars for the rest of his life on the upper end of the scale — though O’Donnell might view that as a bit “tacky.”

  1. “Hopefully, some of her ability to win votes will rub off on me.”

    Wow. O’Donnell is dumber than I already thought she was. I’m betting she doesn’t know that Locard’s Exchange Principle works both ways. As to Bodenweiser, it’s not often one sees a living example so close to that of the Edwin Edwards Principle: “The only way I can lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy.” What kind of family values are those anyway? The Manson family?

  2. Family values, the haven for more than one kind of pervert. Many members of this so called “conservative” club rationalize their unbelievably vile behavior by arguing they operate under a different set of rules because they are the chosen ones who will save the country from the ultimate enemy –empathetic liberals. As a result, if they do it, it is,by definition, right.
    Hypocrites, puffed up sociopaths who are actually running our Congress and seek the Presidency.

  3. Bodenweiser was an active middle school and elementary school mentor? I wonder if he sexually abused more children. I wonder if parents of the children he mentored were aware that Bodenweiser was working with them and had given their permission for him to be their mentor.

  4. I am not sure if this belongs here, or under the heading, “Another judge runs wild.” Below is the text accompanying a petition I got this morning urging a reconsideration of sentencing for former police officer Robb Gary Evans for groping a female at a bar.” Just another footnote in the ongoing saga of the Republican war on women. By a female judge appointed by a female governor, no less!

    Last summer, a drunk Arizona police officer named Robb Gary Evans drove to a bar, flashed his badge so he didn’t have to pay the cover charge, then walked up behind a woman, put his hand up her skirt, and pressed his fingers into her genitals.

    A jury convicted him of felony sexual abuse, and he was fired from the force.

    This summer, Arizona trial Judge Jacqueline Hatch decided his felony sentence didn’t warrant him any jail time or qualified him for being registered as a sex offender – and told the victim that it was her fault she had been assaulted!

    “If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you,” Hatch, who was appointed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, told the woman, urging her to take something “positive” out of the “lesson” she experienced. “When you blame others, you give up your power to change.”

    Judge Hatch’s sentencing of Evans is bad enough – but her treatment of a sexual assault survivor is abhorrent. Will you join us in calling on Brewer to re-evaluate Hatch’s election and to publicly condemn her atrocious comments?

  5. Before they were the Tea Party they were the Christian Right and before that the Moral Majority and before that the “T” Party (anti tax people from the 60’s). All claim to be grass roots leading a revolution within the Republican Party but ask ol’ Sarah Palin who learned the hard way, the Republican Party prefers to direct its revolutions from the top down … perverts and all.

  6. I’m beginning to think every one of these “family values” politicians should have to register as sex offenders just to be on the safe side.

  7. SwM,

    Obama’s holding at 62% on Intrade (the online betting service). Sometimes more useful than a poll as it reflects the opinions of people who are willing to put money on the line. ;)

  8. Blouise, 68.1 today…… I read something the other day that said that when there are no new polls to look at and you are in withdrawals go to Intrade.

  9. SwM,

    That’s up nicely … he was stuck at 63% for quite a while. The pollsters also follow Intrade when trying to figure their averages. Steady movement upwards is what we want to see.

  10. SwM,

    I read an analysis that the Frankenstorm worked to his advantage in that it brought back memories of the manner in which the Republicans handled Katrina. That might makeup for the problems the storm created for early voting.

    BTW, over half our town is still without power and not expected to get it all back till Sunday.

  11. He raped a boy for three years 20-some years ago and he is known for mentoring middle school and elementary school kids. There are more victims out there.

  12. SwM and Gene,

    I heard from eniobob and he’s fine though many in his neighborhood are not. He’s out there helping others which is no surprise considering it’s eniobob. :)

    Still haven’t heard from Bob Esq and am a little bit worried.

  13. Nate Silver is now forecasting Obama 300.4 electoral votes and Romney 237.6. Nate is giving Obama 79.0% to Romney 21.0% as of today. I would buy a lottery ticket with those odds. Momentum for electoral votes is shifting blue the past several days. The love fest with Chris Christie probably helped the President.

  15. Well, at least he’s not a witch. And if it’s sex with a boy, how could that possibly be homosexual? A boy is just a girl who doesn’t scream, right?

  16. blech blech blech…I am absolutely disgusted with politics. I question the number of accusations against people running for office….if this is true why wasn’t it pursued earlier? If it isn’t true then what gross disgusting mobsterish piggishness is at loose in our Country to smear people in this manner just cause someone has a big joneson for power???? Politics is beginning to stink loudly…. …..

  17. ….if this is true why wasn’t it pursued earlier? So the law exists only to pursue those whose power is perceived to challenge someone elses territory? Blech. This kind of creepshow makes the whole country no better than the mafia…..

  18. Although he looks guilty on the mug shot (who doesn’t), so far there is nothing substantial about these charges based on this post. What do we know for sure? Maybe we ought to just refrain from commenting until some evidence is presented. Never thought that would happen but do agree with O’Donnell about that.

  19. From the source:

    “The indictment came less than a week after Eric Bodenweiser, 53, abruptly dropped out of his race for a State Senate seat in a conservative-leaning district near Rehoboth Beach that includes the City of Georgetown.

    The indictment includes 113 felony sex charges, including 39 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse — first-degree and 74 counts of unlawful sexual contact — second-degree. Although the indictment doesn’t identify the gender of the victim, the Gape Gazette identified the victim as a boy who allegedly was sexually abused by Bodenweiser between Oct. 1, 1987 and Aug. 31, 1990 when he was between the ages of 10 and 13.

    Jason Miller, a spokesperson for the Delaware Attorney General’s office, which is prosecuting the case, said the victim, who is now in his 30s, has spoken to the media and revealed details not disclosed in the indictment but which are expected to surface at a trial.”

    As a general rule, a State AG won’t file 113 charges if they don’t think they have a case. That’s a lot of work if they don’t have some kind of substantive and meritorious evidence that warrants judicial review. Should the man be jailed without trial? No. But his withdrawal from the race immediately preceding the charges being filed tend to inform that there may be fire to go along with this smoke. If the charges were baseless? Running away from a political fight (even if framed as a law suit) doesn’t sound like an act of confidence in proof of innocence. A smaller aside is that the booking photo shows him in his oranges meaning he was fully processed and remanded to custody. No street clothes snap and an ROR for him is also a sign the prosecution feels they’ve got a pretty good case. That being said, it could have been a purely economic decision to withdraw – fight for election made dubious by the situation or fight the charges and not enough resources for doing both simultaneously. The proof is in the eating of the pudding which will happen at trial. However, one does not get in this position without doing something that is 1) suspect enough to draw charges – especially that many – and 2) is operating in some kind of way hypocritical to a “family values” platform even if he’s not a pederast.

  20. The undercurrent to this post by JT is that very few of them get caught, because fully functional psychopaths are far more elusive than the clown variety psychopath this “family values guy” exhibits.

    These types evidently believe the mantra of the past Republican decade:

    ”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    (When You Are Governed By Psychopaths, quoting Karl Rove). If they believe that crap deeply and intensely enough they are bound to go off the deep end at times.

  21. Sometime it takes a very long time to catch up with these guys. Just look at the priest scandals and Sandusky.

  22. Dan,
    I don’t know how to break this to you, but pedophilia does not get one a free pass just because the alleged offender is running for some office. That is not election tampering, it is law enforcement.

  23. Dan,

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. The DE State AG is doing their job in prosecuting alleged criminals based on complaints and evidence they deem sufficient to merit filing charges. Their primary duty is to the law, not political considerations. Forestalling filing could be equally viewed as election tampering, however, tampering is unlikely in the extreme is this instance absent concrete proof to the contrary. In the case of Delaware, the State AG is a career pol. His father is Vice President. If he brought a case like this he didn’t think was solid it could wreck his career and get some dirt on his dad who does want to be President after Obama. Beau Biden is a smarter operator than that. Both strategically and tactically politically and from a pure procedural standpoint, I’d be very surprised if the AG didn’t have all of his ducks in a row before they proceeded with this prosecution.

  24. It doesn’t take a shrink to look @ the mugshot and know what’s going on in his head. And, speaking of heads, he uses Grecian Formula. In the joint his master will probably have him grow that hair and maybe wear braids w/ little ribbons.

  25. Dear Dan… “Tampering” is trying to disenfranchise legitimate voters, as was done by the Tea Party in North Carolina when they claimed that thousands of “dead people” were voting-a claim that was later proven to be 100% false Tampering is the Tea Party’s attempts to shorten voting periods and require that voters show government issued picture ID in various states…tactics that have been declared unconstitutional again and again by the courts…”Tampering” is NOT telling the truth…no matter when it comes out. This guy would not be sitting in jail in an orange jump suit charged with over a hundred felony counts if this were a simple attempt to smear his name right before an election. He’s a pedophile, the worst kind of hypocrite and a disgrace to his party. Get a grip.

  26. Gene, I understand the police and DA are not going to file charges against the guy unless they think they can get a conviction. But, I have to strenuously disagree with your statement that “However, one does not get in this position without doing something that is 1) suspect enough to draw charges – especially that many – and 2) is operating in some kind of way hypocritical to a “family values” platform even if he’s not a pederast.” People lie. People make mistakes. Entirely innocent people are falsely accused and even falsely convicted. I have no clue what the evidence is against this guy, but I will never take the fact of arrest itself as 100% proof of some kind of misconduct. I think it is unwise to put that much faith in any authority.

  27. Waldo,

    You mistake political pragmatism about the parties involved for faith in authority. Putting your neck on the line to prosecute someone like this – a state level operative – without having some substance to the case simply doesn’t make political sense. I’m pretty sure Biden read “The Prince” and Cicero too. But the veracity of the claims and the evidence? That’s for trial. It’s not a perfect process, but it is a largely functional process. There are far more instances of justice being carried out (especially in criminal court) than justice being miscarried although that does happen for a variety of reasons and should be both a matter of concern and something everyone has a vested interest in making sure is minimized. Because that’s the best we humans can do – work on perfecting a system of justice that by its very nature will always have some amount of error in it due to both complexity and human error.

    But respect authority? I’m not exactly known for that. I question everyone. In this instance though and these circumstances I have to go with the prosecution’s own selfish motives at having a winning record over a fairly petty political prosecution that they think has little chance of success other than to put this guy in a bind.

  28. Bron: “who is vetting these people?”

    Vetting? This sort of behaviour is *why* most pigs get hired, a willingness to abuse authority and intimidate the populace.

    Graham Spanier Charged: Ex-Penn State President Facing Perjury Charge In Jerry Sandusky Case

    Excerpt:
    HARRISBURG, Pa. — Former Penn State President Graham B. Spanier was charged Thursday with hushing up child molestation allegations against Jerry Sandusky, making him the third school official to be accused of crimes in the alleged cover-up.

    Prosecutors also added counts against the two former underlings, Timothy M. Curley and Gary C. Schultz, who were already charged with lying to the grand jury that investigated the former Penn State assistant football coach.

    Spanier was charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children and conspiracy. Curley and Schultz face new charges of endangering the welfare of children, obstruction and conspiracy.

  30. Elaine, I wasn’t commenting here when the Sandusky case exploded. We would have been sympatico on that. Here’s my prediction regarding the coverup, higher ups..no jail time. The powerful protect their own even though the rape of those boys are on their heads. Our justice system is a process, w/ the outcomes often not even resembling justice.

    yes, sometimes people who have been abused suffer PTSD and/or the sort of denial that is not conscious but designed to protect the psyche…..so the point of resolution does not happen till years later…..my objection is to the ‘running for office’ part. That seems, more and more, to be a necessary part of the investigatory and prosecutorial process. That does seem to make any manner of enforcement of the laws or application of justice to be a rather private affair that is funded by public $$$$$$.
    :(

  32. NickS,

    Center on the target. It is always substantive when you pinprick a ballooning ego.

    Woosty,

    Speaking of politics smelling now. where has your nose been all these years. You’re too young for Joe McCarthy, but Nixon must have titillated your nostrils.
    ————–

    39 counts. The kid must have been keeping a diary. And Mom was just doing a nostalgia trip through some old storage boxes. I would guess she has helped him through some troubles over the years, and thought that this might help him. Just speculating, like most here.

    It is now I go medieval and muslim, head on the block.
    And the now 20 year older kid gets first taste of the blood running. May it help him.

  33. ID, Do you think that balloon will just pop on its own someday?. As I’ve said previously, no real world experience and now as I’ve come to see, no social skills. A lonely, angry man. This is his world.

  34. Swarthmore Mom,

    Perhaps Nick is right. Certainly not in the numbers of “admirers” here. But sitting at the top of the pyramid must feel lonely at times. As for compassion for individuals, honestly never seen any. Only for the mass of us, the aggregate mistreated by the system—and that he is very good at.

    Watch the hackles rise when another one like Nick pops up. Piss at the bottom of the pyramid, hound dog. Up here is mine.

    But your one liners are appreciated by both Nick and I.
    Demonstration of a warm heart. Hope you don’t get burnt for them.

  35. While I cant stand these self-righteous repubs it is suspecious that these charges would come out now. I mean why wait until he is a 30 yo man. Why not when he was 20 or 25? And isnt there a statue of limitations? Or can anyone just make a bare charge and you wind up in jail? Its such a viseral reaction when anyone is arrested and charged as a child molester. Even if hes not guilty he’ll never be allowed around children. Again Im not defending this tool. If hes guilty put him in prison for a long time. But if hes not its ruined his personal life and his political career.

    baking cookies and damn proud of it………

    I just got back from voting….standing in line for an hour…..people had come by 2 and 3 days ago but left as there was no parking. I took the bus….it was 25min late going to……45 min late coming home……I’m sure glad I don’t live in a 3rd world Country…… ;) but the comments in the queue were worth the wait!

  37. GaLiberal,

    Are you familiar with the Catholic clergy sex abuse scandal? Many victims didn’t come forward with their stories until many years–even decades–after their sexual abuse by priests occurred.

  38. Say . . . are there two clowns on this thread who still think their opinions of me matter to anyone other than themselves? Why that’s adorable! You’re just like two chihuahuas barking to hear yourselves bark.

    Woof, woof!

  39. The best way to determine if something “doesn’t matter” is when the person doesn’t respond. Your ego makes it impossible for you not to respond. Tick tock tick tock.

  40. I think aggravating you is funny because the sure way to point out an obsessive with a self-image problem is to provide a target for their obsession.

  41. Besides, you were the one who wanted to make this thread about me, nick. I’ve been perfectly content to address the topic until I decided to jerk your chain. Now that you’ve got my attention, you suddenly don’t want it. Hmmm. I wonder why that might be.

  42. GaLiberal, the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse has been the subject of specific legislation in many, if not most, states by now. When the child is under the age of 18 it is impossible for him or her to deal with the issue on his or her own. Once a person turns 18, if he has been abused as a child, it also may toll the statute because he may be emotionally disabled and unable, therefore, to bring the charges and tolerate the process that he must go through for legal redress. Many many studies have shown that the only way for many people to tolerate the process required to name a perp and go through the litigation is for a certain amount of time, support, and mental health treatment to fill the intervening years.

    This does not mean that he is guilty. I’m only telling you what I know about the statute of limitations issue.

  43. @Woosty: “my objection is to the ‘running for office’ part.”

    The obvious explanation is that’s just what prompted the victim to come forward. It’s unlikely the victim has been in denial all these years about what happened to him. He would probably have kept the whole painful, sordid story to himself, if not for his assailant running for public office (waving the sanctimonious flag of “family values” no less).

    There’s a lesson there: don’t run for office if you’ve had boys – or dead girls – in your bed. Or, at the very least, think twice.

  44. If the victim came forward because he’s now running for office, why wait until now? Why not come forward when he announced he’s a candidate for office? There just isn’t a good rational reason for waiting so long.

  45. “There just isn’t a good rational reason for waiting so long.”

    Fear of stigma.
    Privacy.
    Fear of repercussions with family.
    General mental trauma and post traumatic stress.
    Civic responsibility.

    Those are five good rational reasons.

    Not liking the timing is politics. The validity of the charges and the why of the timing are discrete issues.

  46. raff,

    Those Benedictine nuns had an interesting way of teaching spelling. I’m not saying inaccurate so much as unconventional. :D

  47. I, for one, would NOT feel stupid if the guy was innocent, no. I would feel that he had been badly used and that somebody had done something quite unfair to him, yes. But I would feel the following two emotions, most of all:

    1. Outrage that somebody actually made false allegations this way because it decreases the belief in the credibility of true allegations;

    and

    2. Who cares about the political career about someone who will preach to everyone else in a way that is coercive, sanctimonious and essentially false no matter what! Boo Hoo.

  48. Malisha,
    Well done. You summed up my thoughts nicely. Like you, few things set me off like false allegations of sexual abuse. They not only ruin the life of the accused, but diminish the actual abuse that goes on all the time. False allegations make it harder for those actually abused.

    Having said that, one has a hard time working up much sympathy for people like Eric Bodenweiser who would trample the rights of others. Given the circumstances, I have a feeling the prosecutor would not have gotten an indictment if there was enough credible evidence to secure a conviction.

  49. GeneH,

    In no way smooching your fanny, but the whole comment was good whereof a part here:
    “Not liking the timing is politics. The validity of the charges and the why of the timing are discrete issues.”

    The previous commenters had so many different fruits on the same table I thought that they were gonna make fruit salad.

  50. Woosty,

    Baking cookies…..do you do a good Toll House aka chocolate chip. It is never good without pecan nuts, no other kind—but that’s the old problem with memories based in youth.

    How sad that you did not give us some of the comments in the waiting line.

    As for voting in a 3d world company. The first citizen lists made were for the purposes of taxes.
    And the same list will do when you stand in front of the village whatever and he asks how your grandchildren are increasiing, and you put your fingerprint on the ballot in the voting booth.
    Not nearly as difficult as in the USA.

    Proud of you doing it. I trust you chose the right man. How will it go in Florida?

  51. GA LIBERAL

    Pardon the snark, you sound almost as an apologist for the accused. If so, that can be taken in either of four ways. The declaration of which is up to you and mnot my speculation.

    Does a georgia liberal mean the same as a NY neo-con?
    All is relative in my world.

    PS That is where the quantum physicists are still.

  52. not that there is anything wrong with being gay….and there is a voluminous difference between being gay and being a pedophile(difference between concensual sex and Rape)But Is Grover Norquist Gay.?

    Oatmeal w/walnuts and toffee….. ;)
    the comments were indeed telling…..I hve little faith in the machines…

  54. “In this instance though and these circumstances I have to go with the prosecution’s own selfish motives at having a winning record over a fairly petty political prosecution that they think has little chance of success other than to put this guy in a bind.”

    Gene, you posit only two possibilities: the guy’s guilty or the prosecution is politically motivated. You mistakenly ignore the other possibility, that the guy is innocent and that whatever evidence they have on the guy is wrong. It’s certainly possible that the prosecution is acting in good faith and think they have a good case, yet the guy is entirely innocent. It’s happened before.

  55. Somewhere along the line this freak developed a taste for “booty” and “screaming skull.” I have very high hopes that if convicted that he will be placed within the general population… :)

  56. “No, Waldo, I don’t exclude that possibility. I just consider it the least likely of the three.”

    It sure sounded like you excluded when you said, without any equivocation:

    “However, one does not get in this position without doing something that is 1) suspect enough to draw charges – especially that many – and 2) is operating in some kind of way hypocritical to a “family values” platform even if he’s not a pederast.”

    That sure doesn’t read like you include the possibility that somebody might be totally innocent.

  57. @Debi, MOST pedophiles do not care if the children are male or female if they are under a certain age. There are some who prefer one gender over another, but it’s not a real issue for most of them. This has nothing to do with a heterosexual or homosexual sexual preference. This is a sexual DYSfunction, a sexual disturbance, a sexual perversion. Sexual preferences are completely different. Also, most pedophiles are actually heterosexual men.

  58. Well Waldo, I wasn’t aware I was supposed to prepare an exhaustive table of all possible outcomes for you. You read into a statement something that is not there. Is there anything else you’d like to psychically attribute to my statements? Or are we clear now?

  59. I’m just curious I wonder how many of the people who have posted comments even know Eric Bodenweiser?

    Here’s the back story no media even bothered to mention.
    The alleged victim went to the media before ever contacting the police. The alleged victims only witnesses who could corroborate the claims being made (the alleged victims parents) are both dead. The alleged victim first claimed they came forward because their father had recently passed away which was a lie the alleged victim’s father passed away in 1994. Then the story changed it was because the alleged victims mother had just passed away another lie the mother passed away in 2010.

    It’s no coincidence that this alleged victim decided to make these allegations just days after Eric Bodenweiser won the primary election.
    It’s no coincidence that the alleged victim and Eric Bodenweiser’s brother Paul Bodenweiser know each other, and spoke to each other before the alleged victim went to the police.

    It’s no secret in Sussex County, Delaware that Paul Bodenweiser hates his brother and will stop at nothing to destroy Eric. Paul started a website 2 years ago making all kinds of baseless accusations about his brother Eric. Paul was pissed their father didn’t include him in the family business, and because he (Paul) didn’t get anything when the family business was sold.

    It’s my opinion the only reason the AG has so many indictments is because they DON’T have a strong case and they know it. They are using the old throw enough against the wall and hope something sticks strategy.

    I like many other Sussex Countians who have known Eric Bodenweiser all our lives do not believe any of the allegations made against him.

  60. Just ran across this while looking to see if they set a date for my brothers trial as he was in court today…or at least supposed to be.

    It never ceases to amaze me the things I read from the ‘followers’ of my brother. I didn’t know until I read this that “It’s no coincidence that the alleged victim and Eric Bodenweiser’s brother Paul Bodenweiser know each other, and spoke to each other before the alleged victim went to the police.” I didn’t know the guy even existed until AFTER the primary!

    That I’m upset about anything concerning the sale of the business is also news to me. I’ve been busy making my own way for a long time and done pretty well.

    I’ve known my brother a lot longer than any of the people that claim to ‘know’ him and I can only promise that he’s been a pervert just about 40 years now when I learned about the “peeping Eric” from our mother.

    That my brother did this…I don’t know…but it wouldn’t surprise me. That he’s done things that should have had him prison long ago? THAT I DO KNOW! You don’t show (32 years ago) up at my dorm room door 550 miles and four state lines away with a just turned 15 year old minor at age 19 or 20 and not be guilty of SOMETHING !!

    For me it’s not a question of proving he’s guilty…it’s proving he’s innocent!

    That I “hate” my brother is not true. I actually still love him as he is my brother. I just don’t like him. Disgusted by him and his hypocritical way bullying people with his being “saved”. I’ve said for at least 10 years now that my brother Eric is the worst human I’ve personally known in my life. Sad but true.

    Never met any of those TV preachers that later got sent to prison, or shamed off TV for doing the things they preached against. Never met Hitler, Edi Amin, Saddam Hussein or any of those others that were/are horrible humans but I grew up with my 14 month younger brother Eric. I know him better than even his current wife does and I know what he’s capable of doing to people.

    Google Narcissistic Personality Disorder and you’ve read all you need to know about my brother Eric. He fits the description perfectly. Describing him as a Sociopath is being nice.

    Sussex Countian is delusional.

  61. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before

  62. The judge after TWO closed door evidence suppression hearings has denied the motions by the defense. Going to be a really rough time for the defendant now. Anyone that needs to have two closed door evidence suppression hearings doesn’t need to be a state senator in the first place.
