I don't know Mel well, though I've met him a few times over the years, and I have to say that, knowing his record, I am dubious about the charge and his knowledge of the activities in the business. But the assertions of Ranting Kid James Marting is assuredly interesting:
The only thing I can say is, "The best judge of a man is the company he keeps."I guess the point is that Jeff simply didn't notice --- assuming Bray's guilt, as Martin appears to (never mind that pesky Sixth Amendment presumption of innocence) --- the scarlet "P" that is issued to keepers of a bawdy place. Perhaps Bray kept it hidden under an article of clothing (assuming his guilt, which I don't). Perhaps he wears in as a tattoo, in a region where "the sun don't shine."
In any case, I'm certainly happy to play the Martin game, and apply his standard, though, to him: wing-nuts Cindy Sheehan, Mike Gravel, and Dennis Kucinich; adulterer Jesse Jackson; adulterer and prevaricator Bill Clinton; convicted tax-evader Dan Rostenkowski; Democrat David Duke; former KKK member Robert Byrd.
I don't know who comes out worse in this game, but Martin doesn't come out so well, based upon the above listing of the flower of Democrat pulchritude.
I, for one, am fully prepared to reserve judgment on the charges against Bray, as I assume (but don't know) Frederick has.
You can play, too!
