The Continuing Saga Of Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-MA) Refusal To Assist In The Apprehension Of A Child Molester

Scott Brown faces a lot of questions.

The Scott Brown childhood sexual molestation story continues to evolve on a near daily basis. Scott Brown ‘s reputation takes another hit as each day passes.

As mentioned in this blog on two separate posts last week, Teapublican Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts injected himself into the spotlight last February when he issued a press release for his yet unreleased autobiography titled “Against All Odds: My Life of Hardship, Fast Breaks, and Second Chances”. That press release revealed for the first time that the clothing-challenged Brown had been a victim of childhood sexual abuse on at least three occasions and by two different deviants. Two of those molestations occurred at a Massachusetts summer camp and the other happened at an unidentified location. By including that bit of personal red meat in the pre-publication release, there is no denying that the revelation was intended to launch sales of his book.

Brown however, has steadfastly refused to identify his molester and has also refused to assist law enforcement agencies in investigating the matter. When asked by local television station WBZ, at the time of the book’s release, if he would pursue his alleged sexual abuser, Brown said, “I have more important things to do… he’s probably in his 70s today.” Massachusetts Cape and Islands District Attorney, Michael O’Keefe reports that Scott Brown told him he didn’t want to pursue the case.  By means of his investigation obstruction, Scott Brown has painted himself into a corner from which he may not be able to escape without a permanent unsightly stain on his moral character.

The Senator had every right to keep his sexual abuse to himself as a matter of personal privacy. Indeed, he recently admitted that until the release of his book, he never mentioned the molestation to anyone including his mother and wife. That was his prerogative, but as soon as Brown publicized the abuse in his memoir, the rules changed. The criminal allegations have now been made public by Brown and there are resultant ramifications and obligations which must be addressed. Scott Brown now has a moral duty to reveal the identity of his abuser if for no other reason than to prevent this sexual predator from hurting more children. It makes no difference that the criminal is “probably in his 70′s” because there are numerous examples of convicted sexual predators in that age range. Additionally, inasmuch as sex offenders tend to repeat their crimes, it was quite likely that an identification made by a victim with Brown’s stature would urge any other past victims to come forward.

That is precisely what has happened since Brown’s confession. Early last week an unidentified man came forward and claimed that he was molested at a Massachusetts summer camp (Camp Good News) where it has been confirmed that Brown also stayed. Indeed, this second victim said he came forward as the result of Brown’s disclosure. The difference between this victim and the clothing-challenged Senator however, is that this man had the guts and moral fortitude to assist law enforcement in its attempts to capture a child molester on the loose. In fact, the victim’s lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, said that his client would “fully cooperate” with any investigation because “he wants to make the world a safer place for children.”

Shortly after this new victim contacted law enforcement, we learned that the alleged molester Charles Devita, took his own life when he learned that he was being investigated. Brown has said that Devita was not his molester. If Devita was indeed a child abusing sexual deviant, then his reign of terror has ended and he will never violate a child again. The suicide occurred so quickly on the heels of the identification that it would appear that the person either felt that his capture was imminent or he suffered from an uncontrollable level of guilt. Since then, Garabedian has been contacted by two more brave men that claim to have been sexually molested at the camp by Devita as well as an additional brave man and woman who claim to have been molested at the camp by someone else. The investigation by law enforcement of that “someone else” is now under way and it is likely that if there is evidence of his guilt, that “someone else” will be brought to justice and another child molester will be prevented from re-offending.

All the while, Scott Brown continues to refuse to divulge the identity of his abuser to law enforcement agencies while maintaining that his molester was not Devita. This means that Brown continues to enable his molester to roam freely with the potential to defile again. Brown appeared on Boston radio host Howie Carr’s program on WRKO AM 680 last Wednesday and was confronted by the host regarding Brown’s refusal to assist in bringing a potentially dangerous child molester to justice.

Carr asked the following question: Isn’t it important for you to come out and name or at least cooperate?

Brown responded: Howie, nobody has asked me to do anything.

Carr then said: But, can we agree that pedophiles don’t usually stop committing these crimes?

Brown responded: Historically that’s accurate, yeah.

Carr then followed with: So, isn’t it the best move to inform the authorities who molested you?

Brown responded: Howie, I have no evidence that the person who did it to me 42 years ago is no. 1 even alive and no. 2 is doing it again…If I had any … inclination whatsoever I certainly would do anything… but once again, I’m moving forward in my own way…

Carr followed-up with:  …So, O’Keefe (Cape and Islands District Attorney) has not spoken to you. Is that what you are saying?

Brown said:  I’m not gonna talk to you about it anymore because it’s really nothing to do with what I’m doing on Capitol Hill right now.

Carr then put Brown on the spot again by saying:  OK, one last question. You don’t feel any guilt about what happened this morning (i.e. the alleged suspect’s suicide)?

Brown then selfishly answered:  … I’m a victim Howie, so I felt guilty long enough…

Carr:  But there could be other victims.

Brown’s non-answer:  If that’s the case. If me and the young man who came forward have given other people the strength to move forward and come out and talk about it, then it’s great.

Here is the audio link of the Carr/Brown interview. The juicy stuff starts at the 1:45 minute mark:  http://audio.wrko.com/a/39260794/senator-scott-brown.htm

Things are coming to a head as more and more brave and selfless victims from Camp Good hope emerge and what they can to help apprehend roaming child sex offenders. Brown’s continued obstruction is inexcusable. It is morally abhorrent for him to profit by means of publicizing his own childhood sexual molestation and then to claim that he wants to keep the identity of the perpetrator a private matter. His book made this a public matter, and victims may be mounting as Scott Brown selfishly protects a child molester by refusing to identify him. These six unheralded abuse victims did the brave thing and not only came forward, but assisted in bringing at least two child molester to justice. In the meantime, Scott Brown cowardly sits on the sidelines counting his book sale royalties while another unidentified child molester may remain on the prowl.

As I have now posted repeatedly, Scott Brown will need more than the Tea Party to win re-election in 2012. Massachusetts Republicans and Democrats may disagree on many issues, but protecting sexual offenders is not one of them.

UPDATE:

The Boston Globe reports today that an additional eight brave alleged sexual molestation victims from Camp Good Hope have come forward bringing the total number of potential victims to thirteeen. The thirteen victims have identified “less than five” alleged child molesters. When asked whether an identification by Scott Brown of his alleged molester would be of some assistance,  Attorney Mitchell Garabedian said, ““Would it help if he named the molester? Sure’’. Well Scott, we are waiting.

SCOTT BROWN

(sung to the Petula Clark song “Downtown”)

If Mass. is your home
And you are full of baloney,
You must surely be – Scott Brown
You have your worries,
With no clothes in snow flurries
You’re a nudist boy – Scott Brown

You’re popular in the woods but were voteless in the city
Your term is only two years Scott, and isn’t that a pity?
You’re sure to lose

You’ve got some Mitt Romney hair
But it grows down on your buttocks, we’ve seen when you’re bare, and so
Scott Brown – politics of hate when you’re
Scott Brown – voted right out the door
Scott Brown – private life’s waiting for you
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

Don’t wear a frown
As the Tea-Baggers surround you
They are friends not foes – Scott Brown
The “Party of No”
Is just the place that they go to
Where their hatred grows – Scott Brown

Just charm them with the rhythm of your naked bossanova
They’ll be bare-assed with you too before the night is over
Happy again

They’ll take off their underwear
Then they’ll forget all their troubles, forget all their cares like you,
Scott Brown – not erudite or bright
Scott Brown – every nudist’s delight
Scott Brown – you’re gonna be alright now
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown, Scott brown)

(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

And you might find that your behind will help ingratiate you
With Larry Craig who loves the view and has a gentle hand to
Guide you along

And maybe you’ll see him bare
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares dear bro
Scott Brown – get right down on all fours
Scott Brown – don’t wait a minute more
Scott Brown – Larry Craig’s waiting for you

Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
(repeat and fade out)

Scott Brown And His Child Molester: A Hot Topic Once Again

Scott Brown has some 'splainin to do.

As mentioned in this blog earlier in the week, Teapublican Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts injected himself into the spotlight last February when he issued a press release for his yet unreleased autobiography titled “Against All Odds: My Life of Hardship, Fast Breaks, and Second Chances”. That press release revealed for the first time that the clothing-challenged Brown had been a victim of childhood sexual abuse on at least three occasions and by two different deviants. Two of those molestations occurred at a Massachusetts summer camp and the other happened at an unidentified location. By including that bit of personal red meat in the pre-publication release, there is no denying that the revelation was intended to launch sales of his book.

Brown however, refused to identify his molester and also refused to assist law enforcement agencies in investigating the matter. When asked by local television station WBZ if he would pursue his alleged sexual abuser, Brown said, “I have more important things to do… he’s probably in his 70s today.” By means of his investigation obstruction, Scott Brown has painted himself into a corner.

The Senator had every right to keep his sexual abuse to himself as a matter of personal privacy. Indeed, he recently admitted that until the release of his book, he never mentioned the molestation to anyone including his mother and wife. That was his prerogative, but as soon as Brown publicized the abuse in his memoir, the rules changed. The criminal allegations have now been made public by Brown and there are resultant ramifications and obligations which must be addressed. Scott Brown now has a moral duty to reveal the identity of his abuser if for no other reason than to prevent this sexual predator from hurting more children. It makes no difference that the criminal is “probably in his 70′s” because there are numerous examples of convicted sexual predators in that age range. Additionally, inasmuch as sex offenders tend to repeat their crimes, it is likely that an identification made by a victim with Brown’s stature would urge any other past victims to come forward. Scott Brown’s silence is enabling an alleged child molester to remain on the loose. In short, Brown is personally profiting from his revelations of sexual molestation while doing nothing to prevent other children from suffering the same sexual abuse by the same deviant.

That reality became painfully clear just this week when an unidentified man came forward and claimed that he was molested at a Massachusetts summer camp where it has been confirmed that Brown also stayed. Indeed, this second victim said he came forward as the result of Brown’s confession. The difference between this victim and the Senator however, is that this man had the guts and moral fortitude to assist law enforcement in its attempts to capture a child molester on the loose. In fact, the victim’s lawyer said that his client would “fully cooperate” with any investigation because “he wants to make the world a safer place for children.”

We learned last night that the man identified as a molester by the unidentified victim took his own life when he learned that he was being investigated. If this person was indeed a child abusing sexual deviant, then his reign of terror has ended and he will never violate a child again. The suicide occurred so quickly on the heels of the identification that it would appear that the person either felt that his capture was imminent or he suffered from an uncontrollable level of guilt.

This is not the end of the story however. Although it is strangely coincidental that this second adult abuse victim was violated at the same camp that the Senator once attended, Brown still refuses to name the camp where he was violated and he denies that he ever knew this particular alleged molester. ABC News reports that Brown’s spokeswoman Gail Gitcho released a statement saying, “Senator Brown is aware of the reported suicide at Camp Good News, but he wants to emphasize that he does not know the deceased and has never met him.” Consequently, Senator Brown continues to enable his molester to continue to roam freely with the potential to defile again.

Brown’s continued obstruction is inexcusable. It is morally abhorrent for him to profit by means of publicizing his own childhood sexual molestation and then to claim that he wants to keep the identity of the perpetrator a private matter. His book made this a public matter, and victims may be mounting as Scott Brown selfishly protects a child molester by refusing to identify him. The second unidentified and therefore unheralded abuse victim did the brave thing and not only came forward, but assisted in bringing a child molester to justice. In the meantime, Scott Brown cowardly sits on the sidelines counting his book sale royalties while a child molester may remain on the prowl.

As I said yesterday, Scott Brown will need more than the Tea Party to win re-election in 2012. Massachusetts Republicans and Democrats may disagree on many issues, but protecting sexual offenders is not one of them.

BREAKING NEWS: Nudist Teapublican Senator Scott Brown Was Buggered!

Scott Brown chuckles during his "60 Minutes" interview.

Sometimes you just have to wonder what inspires  people to reveal personal things. It was just over a year ago that the Tea Party claimed its first election victory at the federal level. In the special election to fill the late Ted Kennedy’s Massachusetts Senate seat, the Sarah Palin-endorsed Scott Brown upset the heavily favored Martha Coakley and a Republican was elected in that bluest of blue states for the first time in decades.

Brown immediately became the poster child for the defeat of the Democrats’ health care reform legislation (despite the fact that he voted in favor of the passage of the very same law while he was a Massachusetts state representative just 4 years earlier). He failed. The Democrats passed the health care reform law despite Brown’s so-called “41st vote” by means of utilizing the reconciliation procedure. Brown’s status continued to decline within conservative circles when he shunned appearing with Sarah Palin at her Boston Tea Party rally. Thereafter, he really started pissing-off the Tea Baggers when he began voting with Democrats on a job creation bill and the sweeping financial regulation package. Scott Brown’s star was fading in Republican circles.

No longer was Scott Brown one of the “go-to” guys for a Fox News soundbyte. All talk of a future Republican bid for President had ceased. The Republican Senate leadership even unceremoniously evicted him from Ted Kennedy’s cushy Capitol office space and banished him to a cubby-hole in a separate building. Jeesh, what does a former Tea Party star have to do to get some attention in the Beltway?

Let’s see. He could get involved in a sex scandal like fellow Republicans David Vitter, Larry Craig, Mark Sanford, Mark Foley or John Boehner (pronounced “boner”). But no, that would be too predictable and stale these days. Wait a minute, he could take the opposite approach. He could play the role of a victim of a sexual predator.

And voila! Scott Brown has just injected himself back into the public spotlight by revealing in an interview with CBS‘ “60 Minutes” that he was sexually abused at the age of 10. CNN reports today that he said,

“Fortunately, nothing was ever fully consummated so to speak. It was certainly, back then, very traumatic. “He [the perpetrator] said, ‘If you tell anybody, I’ll kill you. I’ll make sure nobody believes you,'”.That’s the biggest thing. When people find people like me at that young vulnerable age that are basically lost. The thing that they have over you is that that they make you believe no one will believe you.”

The Boston Globe reports that the perpetrator was a male camp counselor and some of the details will be provided in Brown’s autobiography which will be released on Monday. Brown said that the molestation took place on Cape Cod at a religious camp. He did not however, disclose the name of the camp in his book, or the denomination.

“I can remember how he looked, every inch of him: his long sandy, light brown hair; his long, full mustache; the beads he wore; the tie-dyed T-shirts and the cutoff jeans, which gave him the look of a hippie,” Brown writes in the book, “Against All Odds.”

The Boston Globe further reports, Brown said the abuse occurred when he went to the camp infirmary, not feeling well. The counselor followed him into the bathroom, according to Brown’s account.

“I was standing there with my pants down and he came right up next to me and asked me if I needed help, and then he reached out his hand,” Brown writes, continuing with a graphic description of the encounter.

In his book, Brown says the incident with the counselor was not the first time he faced a potential sex abuser. In an earlier episode Brown describes, when he was about 8 and living in Malden, MA, he befriended a 13-year old boy from the neighborhood. Late one winter afternoon, the friend approached Brown in the woods, threatened him with a knife, and commanded Brown to perform a sexual act, according to Brown’s account. Feeling desperate, Brown says, he hit the teenager in the face with a rock and ran away.

“To this day,” the senator writes, “I can still see the flash of that knife blade in the woods and the thirteen-year-old boy with his pants down.”

Brown claims that he had never revealed the attacks until this interview. You have to wonder if the episodes had any influence on his past nude modeling. Too bad “60 Minutes” did not enquire into that.

SCOTT BROWN IS THE CENTERFOLD

(sung to the J. Geils Band song “Centerfold”)

C’mon !
Does he walk? Does he talk?
Is he G.O.P.?
Scott Brown’s a Men’s Room angel
Larry Craig would share his seat

His buns are white like snowflakes
No underwear to stain
He poses like a sweet angel
Naked but with no brain

This sad guy loves posing in those porno magazines
He’s like a nudist angel and he’s pimping out his teens

(CHORUS)
He must be cold
A naked man if truth be told
That Scott Brown is the centerfold
Scott Brown is the centerfold

He must be cold
A naked man if truth be told
Scott Brown is the centerfold

Nude behind his Senate desk
This girlie man should be in a dress
Can he see that Larry Craig
Is giving him the eye

He is naked but for shoes
Much too indecent for the news
You must wear clothes on TV
They told that Scott Brown guy

Wear diapers like Dave Vitter
They do not cover  much
Or simply wear a negligee
That would be a nice touch

(CHORUS)
He must be cold
A naked man if truth be told
That Scott Brown is the centerfold
Scott Brown is the centerfold

He must be cold
A naked man if truth be told
Scott Brown is the centerfold

(na, na, na, na, na, na…..)

It’s okay we understand
Scott’s nudity should not be banned
But while prancing on the Senate lawn
We wish he would keep his clothes on

Take his truck, Yes he will
He’ll take that truck and drive it
He says the cab has lots of room
For his ass and his private

He says that his bod’s really ripped
He loves it when his clothes are stripped
Oh, no, Scott can’t deny it
Oh yeah, it’s time for him to diet!

(CHORUS)
He must be cold
A naked man if truth be told
That Scott Brown is the centerfold
Scott Brown is the centerfold

He must be cold
A naked man if truth be told
Scott Brown is the centerfold

(REPEAT)
