Former Ohio Mayor (D) Richard Keenan Admits To Raping 4 Year-Old:
Says Victim Was “Willing Participant”, Media Ignores Party Affiliation.
(D) Richard Keenan blamed the victim for initiating the acts and called her a “willing participant.”
Former Democrat Mayor of Hubbard Ohio, (D) Richard Keenan, is facing multiple charges for raping a 4 year-old girl for over three years. The Democrat mayor from 2010-2011, was put in Trumbull County Jail but released on a $75,000 bond.
(D) Keenan had told his wife, brother, pastor, and sister-in-law about his abhorrent transgressions. Then checked himself into a psychiatric therapy center after suffering from suicidal thoughts.
Keenan also admitted sexual abuse during “group discussions” while he was in the ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital psychiatric ward. Keenan voluntarily admitted himself into a Warren psychiatric facility after his release from Trumbull, he told a social worker “he was feeling suicidal because he had been molesting the child victim for approximately the past two years.” It states that during those discussions, Keenan blamed the victim for initiating the acts and called her a “willing participant.” – The Vindicator
The attorney for the Democrat mayor has asked the judge to rule on the admissibility of (D) Keenan’s confessions to family members and his pastor.
Many reports about this child rapist leave out his political affiliation. Even the local paper, The Vindicator, refused to refer to him as a Democrat when reporting this story. But this excerpt below from the Vindi shows that they were aware of his party affiliation and even applauded his election. Does anyone believe that The Vindi or many other news outlets would withhold an (R) if he had been a Republican?
Keenan admitted he had pondered the “what ifs” before the 11 Trumbull County Democratic Party precinct committee members met Dec. 29 to vote on Magee’s successor. And he shared his interest in serving as mayor with others. “I wondered about running,” he said. Circumstances presented this opportunity.
Not all child rapists are Democrats, and not all Democrats are child rapist… aside from the current Democrat nominee’s husband, the fact that news reports are intentionally hiding his party affiliation shows the extent of what they will tolerate in the name of progressivism.
