Neil Goldschmidt is a rapist who never served time.

Yeah, and he’s a rat bastard, too. Well, former Governor of Oregon, I could just spit. And all of you who knew about it and looked the other way? You think you’re not guilty? O my God, you are so wrong.

God rest her soul, she deserved a lot better. May she rest in peace.

* These a-holes think they’re funny but they’re not. She’s gone now, isn’t that just hilarious? Ha. Ha. Ha. I could just smack someone, y’know? I can think of about a dozen people, including whoever wrote and edited that, who I would like to slap upside the head.

* Margie Boule did a great job reporting and writing this.

* So did Steve Duin. Thank you both, Margie and Steve.

That’s all for now, but it’s not the last we’re going to hear about it. And that’s a good thing. How can I say this? These times we live in, they are far from perfect. But I am grateful that we are living in new times, modern times, more enlightened times. (I’m saying this with a lot of caution and hesitation, as I write the words.) Times when, maybe? please? people aren’t being allowed to just sweep things under the rug and pretend they didn’t happen.

True? Maybe. And that’s about as optimistic as I’m going to get on this.

    “….she deserved a lot better.” Indeed. Her entire life has been marked, branded, by that man’s assault. His humiliation cannot be too great. (Presuming that he feels humiliation at some level.)

    And he’s still beyond punishment? I’m sending bad thoughts and hopes of really good karmic retaliation his way. (Or does that screw me over? I don’t know. Still doing it.)

    Congratulations for calling him by his true name — rapist. Kevin Dowling at CARES Northwest once told me that the media need to stop using euphemisms like “abuser” and “molester,” and start using the word “rapist.” Now if I can only convince The Oregonian…

    PREACH IT, WM!! And may his poor victim be at peace now. He ruined another person’s life and waltzed away. Makes me so mad I could spit!

    I can’t agree more. I have stories about him while attending St. Mary’s. He was at the school a LOT. Doing fund raisers and the Second Wind project. On numerous occasions the girls that were involved in the Second Wind project were in his “oval office” unsupervised. He is a wolf in PIG’s clothing.
