Yes, in most states 16 is the age of consent. I have no ****ing idea what that has to do with Trayvon, though.

A 56-year old man getting or giving a 17-year old a BJ in the bushes is pathetic and not what I want in an elected official.
Morality is relative to the individual. I don't give a flying **** who politician screw as long as it's consensual. Not any of my goddamn business. Not any of yours either.

Correct. I do not care what a law says I am allowed to do. I care about what is right or wrong.

And in my book, it is wrong for a fifty-six-year-old man to proposition minors on the internet and meet them at rest-stops for fellatio.

Call me old-fashioned.

Some individuals are simply completely bankrupt of morals and decency these days.

Age is just a number. Right and wrong are relative. I don't give a **** even if it was illegal. I only care that it was consensual. The sex life of politicians - or ANYONE for that matter - isn't anyone's goddamn business and bears absolutely zero relevance to ... well... anything.
