Republican Dwelling candidate Anthony Bouchard admitted to statutorily raping and getting a 14-three hundred and sixty five days-mature lady pregnant when he was as soon as 18.
The Casper Well-known person-Tribune reported:
U.S. Dwelling candidate Anthony Bouchard had a relationship with and impregnated a 14-three hundred and sixty five days-mature lady when he was as soon as 18, he told the Well-known person-Tribune unhurried Thursday, hours after he disclosed the relationship in a Fb Stay video to his supporters.
“So, bottom line, it’s a story when I used to be as soon as young, two teenagers, lady gets pregnant,” he stated in the Fb Stay video. “You’ve heard those reports earlier than. She was as soon as a dinky younger than me, so it’s just like the Romeo and Juliet myth.”
Bouchard it seems has never be taught Romeo and Juliet, as a result of his myth is that of an grownup raping a 14-three hundred and sixty five days-mature lady and getting her pregnant. That’s a crime, now not a Shakespearian tragedy.
Bouchard has been producing pleasure as a result of he’s the Trumper that could be primarying Liz Cheney for having the nerve to both vote to impeach Trump and stand up for democracy.
Given his background as a rapist of minors, he’s the correct Trump-fashion candidate, correct like Matt Gaetz.
Spinning this a Romeo and Juliet fashion fancy myth minimizes statutory rape, and leaves out the facts. The couple divorced after three years and his ex-wife committed suicide by the age of 20, and that he’s estranged from his son.
Republicans appear to reward illegal activity and immorality, however one suspects that Trump’s chosen predominant challenger to Liz Cheney is imploding.
