Missouri Legislator Arrested for Sexually Assaulting Minor

The co-sponsor of laws increasing penalties for sexual offenders may be one of the first to receive the enhanced sentences in Missouri. State Rep. Scott Muschany, R-Frontenac, has been indicted in the alleged sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl, the daughter of a state employee who was reportedly romantically involved with Muschany (who is married with two children).

Muschany is charged with a Class C felony for “deviate sexual assault” and is facing a potential sentence of up to 7 years. At 42, he was a rising star in the state GOP and chaired various committees in the legislature. He was known for his “tough-on-crime” politics, including his work on increasing penalties for sex offenders in 2006.

He originally denied the story, but has since declared that he is not going to seek reelection “to spend more time with his family.”

  1. Palindrome,
    I think you are right about the Republican party. They are so far out of the mainstream that their new stars are people like Palin who never should have left Alaska.

  2. Is it just me, or is the republican party so far off the rails that the only people who want to run for office with an R behind their names are grifters or freaks?

  3. The Republicans who are tough on crime are usually criminals and the ones who legislate against gays are usually gay. If this guy had not raped a child, it would almost be funny.

  4. My only surprised is that this “tough on crime” Republican wasn’t raping BOYS.
