It isn't rape when Democrats do it

Yesterday a former senior Democrat staffer (he worked for Joe Lieberman and [mc_name name=’Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’L000550′ ] in the Senate and Herb Kohl, [mc_name name=’Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’C000984′ ], and [mc_name name=’Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’S001145′ ] in the House) plead guilty in DC Superior Court to third-degree sexual abuse, two misdemeanor counts of sexual abuse and one count of misdemeanor threats. You might think justice was done, but you would be wrong. What did this senior Congressional staffer do?

Prosecutors say that on July 22, 2010, Williams invited a female congressional colleague to his Capitol Hill apartment and promised to introduce her to Senate employees. At the house, prosecutors said, Williams spiked a drink with Ambien. The woman, according to court documents, fell into a “deep sleep,” at which point Williams raped her.

A month later, prosecutors said, Williams invited another woman to his home and gave her alcoholic beverages. They said he had sexual contact with her when she was too intoxicated to give her consent.

Williams had been indicted on 10 counts, but prosecutors agreed to dismiss the remaining charges. As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors said they would seek a suspended prison term and five years of supervised probation. Williams also would have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

For two rapes Williams, with powerful patrons inside DC’s Democrat establishment gets a suspended sentence. What usually happens when a man uses Ambien to rape a woman?

This is not probation

Paul David Messersmith agreed to the 21-year term as part of a plea deal reached in July that spared him the possibility of life in prison if convicted by a jury of rape using an intoxicating substance. Instead, he pleaded no contest to rape and forcible penetration and admitted administering a controlled substance to the victim.

Police arrested Messersmith after the 18-year-old girl told her mother, and then police, that on Dec. 11, 2013, she found a piece of pill in some ice cream he gave her after a driving lesson and was told the chunk was likely “an additive.” The girl said she grew woozy and laid on the couch with slurred speech when Messersmith pulled off her pajama bottoms and touched her. She said after waking up from a blackout, he carried her to a bedroom and raped her.

The police discovered the drug Messersmith allegedly used was Zolpidem, better known as Ambien.

And this is not probation:

Jacob Christensen appeared in 1st District Court Monday afternoon. He showed little emotion as Judge Kevin Allen sentenced him to serve five-years-to-life in the Utah State Prison.

State attorney Spencer Walsh said in that report, Christensen admitted to “fingering the victim,” after she had taken the sleep aid Ambien and was unconscious.
Allen told Christensen it didn’t matter whether it was his finger or something else, it was rape because she couldn’t consent.

This is a great example of the “different spanks for different ranks” mentality that grips the DC criminal justice system when it comes to dealing with the politically connected… by which I mean Democrats. A connected Democrat is indicted on a series of charges that would bring a normal human a very long prison sentence and it gets bargained down to being sent to his room with no dinner. At least two… and I say “at least” because history shows that people who exhibit this casual attachment to date rape drugs usually operate for a while before they are caught… women were raped and the rapist walks. While Rolling Stone is chasing a gang rape that may or may not have happened and the Washington Post has assigned one of its foreign affairs correspondents to read the college newspaper columns of Elizabeth Lauten this atrocity has happened right in front of them and they couldn’t care less.
