What Larry Craig supposedly did pales in comparison to what Charles Rust-Tierney definitely did do, but we all know whose getting all the attention in our liberal press:
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A man who for 12 years served as president of the Virginia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union was sentenced to seven years in prison Friday for downloading what authorities said was some of the "most abhorrent" child pornography they have ever seen.
The prison term for Charles Rust-Tierney, 52, of Arlington, is one year less than the minimum sentence suggested under federal sentencing guidelines, and more than the five-year term defense attorneys wanted.
Rust-Tierney said depression and "plummeting self-esteem" led him astray.
"I know what I have done is wrong, morally and legally," he said. "My conduct in paying the producers of this material is reprehensible. I am filled with contrition, remorse and shame."
