A former small-town Ohio mayor, who has described himself as a “dedicated” Christian, admitted to molesting a girl for years and blamed the victim for being a “willing participant,” according to court documents.
A motion filed by the Trumbull County Prosecutor’s Office Monday says Richard Keenan, the former mayor of Hubbard, confessed his crimes to his wife, his brother, his sister-in-law and a pastor.
He also told a psych ward social worker he was “feeling suicidal because he had been molesting the child victim for approximately the past two years,” says the motion obtained by the Daily News.
The Youngstown Vindicator first reported on the motion.
Keenan, 65, a prominent supporter of the Democratic Party was indicted last month on eight counts of rape and 12 counts of attempted rape and gross sexual imposition. The former mayor faces life in prison if convicted. He is now free on $75,000 bail.
According to the motion, Keenan first admitted to a local pastor that he molested the girl, who was 4 at the time.
What we are finding really surprising about this story is the deafening silence from left wing media. With a major FBI investigation of the so called ‘Pizzagate’ paedophile scandal, which allegedly involves several people very high up in the Democratic Party hierarchy and the Washington political establishment underway, and another entirely separate paedophilia case, again involving senior Democrats, being conducted by the New York Police Department one would thing all thoseeche left wing extremist online news sites that shrieked with outrage for several months because Donald Trump said something crude ten years ago, might start asking just what the hell Democrat politicians have to do before they are called to account for their crimes?
