Speaking for Ron Jeremy
For days, Bruce Barclay’s political career hung in the balance. The Republican commissioner of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, had been accused of rape — by a man, no less — and the police were bearing down. Barclay’s lawyer issued a strong denial (“This accusation of rape is ludicrous It will be defended forever and is wrong.”). But it was clear things were looking pretty dicey. Until… vindication! Well, sort of.
On March 31st, police, investigating the allegation of rape by the 20-year old Marshall McCurdy, obtained a warrant to search Barclay’s home. They didn’t find evidence of rape. But they did find videotapes of hundreds of sexual encounters with men that Barclay had filmed on high-tech surveillance cameras. The cameras were hidden inside AM/FM radios, motion detectors and intercom speaker systems, among other places. There was also one at his business office.
None of the subjects were aware they were being filmed and no permission had been obtained, Barclay admitted. According to a second warrant issued on April 9th, Barclay also admitted to hiring prostitutes on a weekly basis from the now-defunct website harrisburgfratboys.com.
I predict this will be bad news for Democrats. Particularly bad for elitists who go to SAN FRANCISCO.
I bet Mr. Barclay isn’t bitter about police finding his porn stash. From the sounds of it, he wouldn’t have the time to be bitter even if he were so inclined.
Reputable papers don’t typically identify alleged rape victims unless they have specifically asked to be, as I’m sure Paul L. could tell us, does anyone know why he was identified here?
Whee indeedy. I was going into Republican Sex Scandal withdrawal.
I particularly enjoyed this flop-sweat soaked quote from the lawyer:
Translation: Please God, don’t let them find the tapes!
Translation: Damn it! Well, maybe if I talk enough no one will mention the prostitutes!
And of course the bastard looks like Drew Carey after a reverse liposuction.
Please drop the pork rinds and do some sit ups, you fat slobs.
Cumberland County is on the ball. Their Web site:
Google hasn’t caught up, yet.
Am I the only one still recovering from http://www.harrisburgfratboys.com?
You may be the only one who clicked on it. I assume it is NSFW.
Mother of god, I am not hitting that link.
Recovering from the name of the site, or from all the gay sex you’ve been having?
Yep, but the NSA just signed up a star snoop.
Wise choice, I think.
Interestingly, this Barcklay scumbag had endorsed Obama. Go figure.
NSA nothing — RSA should be expecting a call from MSNahoo! any moment now…

Yeah, I don’t know what you’re going to do with just ONE..
Wow! Just wow! At least he’s not Teh Gay.
John’s a Democrat now. We’re not…creative…like the Republicans are.

Being a Republican means that Barclay is automatically granted a Diminished Capacity defense – just like a “W” sticker on your SUV allows you to park in the Handicapped spots.
Here’s a blockbuster headline from the future:
Well, maybe you should. There is a photo there of Barclay together with a happy Karl Rove. Karl seems pretty satisfied. Maybe one of the hundreds of tapes could speak to that.
Also like that Barclay appears to be wearing some sort of lapel pin. I’m beginning to think Republicans wear lapel pins as some sort of signal to other happy warriors in their party. Secret code. Depending on type of pin and positioning, let’s other Republican manly men on the hunt know whether they’re looking for a Haggard bottom, a Sanchez top, or maybe just a voyeur to witness their climbing on the double wetsuit and dildo express.
I didn’t include link tags in my original post, but I guess typing in the website address automatically generates a link. Is there a way to avoid this?

Which frat was it?
Wow, looks like freshman initiations have gotten really tough lately…
They’re too elitist and out of touch to use bandanas. Someone light up the Duck Signal and alert Hillary!
Nice to see he used the Elliot Spitzer “private life” defense. Progressives will be rushing to his defense like they did with Elliot Spitzer.
In particular Spitzer’s greatest defenders Scott Horton and Glenn Greenward.

I blame the Patriot act.
I guess to guys are right about George W. Bush turning the US into a police state when a man can not have multiple hidden high-tech surveillance cameras concealed in his home.
Keep your laws out of my bedroom!!!!!11!!!
I guess that there is a double standard for male and female alleged rape victims.
I wonder if Bruce Barclay agrees that rural Pennsylvanian men are “bitter”?
As far as the rape allegations go, Barclay is innocent until proven guilty. After all, the 20-year-old was hanging around with a GOP politician – he may claim that he was not interested in butt sex, but what did he expect? Doesn’t this kid read the newspaper?
Hanging around alone with an elected Republican is like dressing in drag in a maximum security prison. His words say he did not want anything to happen, but that might just be the guilt talking.

The room’s startin to spin… cause of all the gayness. Cal… I love you.
I’m not sure how, yet, but this is funny.
You read this blog pretty religiously, doncha Paul?
I’m beginning to think that every male gooper I meet would just as soon blow me as shake my hand.
For safety’s sake, I’ve taken to wearing an athletic cup (front and back) whenever I leave the house.
You never know when you might run into one of these sex-crazed goopers, and I want to have a fighting chance at escaping with my “innocence” intact.
Well let’s see what the article says, shall we?
No charges, no restriction on releasing McCurdy’s name, no double standard. Now get these damn jackalopes out of here.
After a couple years of PaulL material …. does anyone have any idea what his actual positions are on any subject? Any subject at all?
Tastes great v. Less filling?
Fuck you very much for the most unpleasant visual….
As a woman, I can’t have the gay anal sex, so Harrisburg frat boys are definitely not my thing. Which brings me to the inherent inequality in the availability of frat boy sex partners in smaller American cities.
And how amazingly well hung it’s turned out to be.

Yeah, actually you can.
This is Hi-larious. I think on April Fool’s Day the Onion should just post actual news summaries of GOP shenanigans like this and see if anyone notices the difference. C’mon, you can’t beat the “Conservative GOP politician exonerated of charges of rape by discovery of videotapes of that encounter, and hundreds of others with male prostitutes. Film at 11” headline.
It’s like religious faith. For Paul L. and many people like him, it seems like straight white males are cruelly and gratuitously persecuted from all sides. Any evidence that to you or I seems to contradict that only looks like another sign of the complexity and pervasiveness of the plot.
Paul L.: “Newspapers don’t publish the names of rape victims, but they publish the names of the accused. That means reporters and editors hate men.”
Sane people: “Don’t you realize that getting raped often causes a strong but irrational sense of shame? Being accused of rape is no picnic either, of course, but at least in that case there often are valid fears for the safety of others, and it’s generally easier to find out the name of the accused by other means, so it would get out eventually. The same isn’t true of the alleged victim.”
Paul L.: “In this one instance, they published the name of the alleged victim, and it’s a man. If they don’t hate men, why aren’t they protecting this guy the same way, HMMM?”
Sane people: “The accused rapist in that instance has practically been exonerated. There’s nothing to the rape charge. I think you’ll find that the names of female alleged victims are often released in other cases that go nowhere.”
Paul L. a month from now: “Hey, all the charges were dropped in this alleged rape of a 15-year-old, but they haven’t published her name. Why does the left hate people who are old enough to drive?”
Well, there could be sorority girl sex partners. Sorority girl sex would be much hotter than frat boy. Make sure like Barclay you tape it. And then….link please?
The timing of this, coming just seven moths before the presidential election, is mighty suspicious. Were Scott Beauchamp and Dan Rather involved? Howie Kurtz wants to know.
As a woman, I can’t have the gay anal sex, so Harrisburg frat boys are definitely not my thing.
Not without either a sex-change operation or a strap-on. Please to note the adjective “gay” modifying the noun phrase “anal sex.”

Actually, he seems to find them pretty sweet.
