Matt Drudge and the right wing pundits have a new tactic in La Cage Au Foley: Blame the victims.
Matt "They asked for it" Drudge
Here's the quote: "these 16 and 17 year-old beasts...and I've seen what they're doing on YouTube and I've seen what they're doing all over the internet -- oh yeah -- you just have to tune into any part of their pop culture. You're not going to tell me these are innocent babies. Have you read the transcripts that ABC posted going into the weekend of these instant messages, back and forth? The kids are egging the Congressman on! The kids are trying to get this out of him. "
Funny, most people don't believe it when my clients who are charged with sexual abuse of kids talk about how much the kids wanted them to do what they did, how the kids seduced them...never seemed like a viable defense but now that they're saying it, who knows?
Thanks Crooks and Liars.
