You have everything in it, background, timeline, other reports,
urnalism. Anglin is able to connect to dots to everything going beyond
issues that are being discussed, even at point analyzing millennials
(Gracchus, the hater of millennials might enjoy it perversely).

Truly, Anglin is the best journalist in this era, absolutely best
e planet right now. By far.

He's not a journalist.
And he starts with claiming that "Sex with a 17-year-old is not a
crime". That's incorrect, age of consent in Florida is 18.
Also Gaetz pretty much admitted sex trafficking in Tucker
interview... saying that it's not a crime to buy plane tickets and
hotel rooms for someone you're dating.... which sounds a lot like he
He also referred to "17 year old woman" (instead of girl), which
obviously tries to make the age sound better, which hints that he did
had something to do with a 17 year old...
Adulthood at 18 (and age of consent) is legal construct. Of course
the law has to draw the line somewhere, but the IDEA that a "girl" of
17 years and 11 months becomes a "woman" on her 18th birthday is
rather silly. Some 17-year-olds are more woman than girl and
vice-versa. And age of consent varies widely across the world. Look at
16 in Finland!
Bigger issue here is the nearly twenty-year age difference. Wouldn't
seem so terribly outrageous if the guy were 19. And of course it's
about hating Gaetz too, which is understandable.
At least he's not fucking his daughter like a Democrat.
Professor Accused of Incest With Daughter
Teacher says sex was consensual as Swiss consider lifting ban against
Dec. 15, 2010 -- Columbia University professor David Epstein was charged
last week with incest, accused of carrying on a three-year affair with his
According to the Columbia Spectator, the affair was consensual, but the
political science teacher has been arraigned on one count of third-degree
incest and could face up to four years in jail.
Epstein's lawyer, Matthew Galluzzo,
said that charges against his client were still "only allegations" that
have not been proven.
"Academically, we are obviously all morally opposed to incest and
rightfully so," he told ABCNews.com. "At the same time, there is an
argument to be made in the Swiss case to let go what goes on privately in
"It's OK for homosexuals to do whatever they want in their own home," he
said. "How is this so different? We have to figure out why some behavior
is tolerated and some is not."
But he questioned why, if the alleged incest was consensual, why Epstein's
daughter had been treated by prosecutors as "somehow a victim here, when
she can be best described as an accomplice."
Incest is still socially and legally taboo in the United States, but
attitudes may be changing in other parts of the world, at least when it
involves adults and not minors.
Switzerland has proposed decriminalizing consensual sexual relationships
between first-degree relatives, like siblings and also between parents and
their adult children. Any coercive sex or incest with a minor would still
Social conservatives in that country have called the bill "completely
repugnant," and a survey has shown that 60 percent of the public opposes
changing the law.
American psychologists and legal experts say that there are still sound
reasons why incest should be illegal, even if it appears it is a choice
between consenting adults.
"It is still a social taboo and the ick factor is much stronger than the
criminal factor," said Professor Joanna L. Grossman, a professor of family
law at Hofstra University in New York.
"I think these relationships are inherently coercive for the same reason
that professors are not allowed to sleep with students in their classes,"
Consensual incest is legal in China, France, Israel, the Ivory Coast, the
Netherlands, Russia, Spain and Turkey, according to a 2007 report from the
Max Planck Institute in Germany.
The report was commissioned after a pair of siblings who had grown up
separately but later reunited and had children.
Patrick S. was raised in an adoptive family and his younger sister Susan
K. remained with their mother after a divorce. The pair met again in 2000
when he was 23 and she was 16 and moved back in with their mother. They
subsequently fell in love and had four children.
Welfare authorities removed the three oldest children from their parents
and Patrick was convicted of incest and was imprisoned for two and half
