CBS Fails To Note Party In Pedophile Sting

From CBS4Boston.com:

David Scondras on right.

Fmr. Boston Councilor Busted In Internet Sex Sting

Oct 10, 2006 12:13 pm US/Eastern

(CBS4) BOSTON Former Boston city councilor David Scondras is facing charges for attempting to lure a teenage boy over the internet.

Lawrence Police arrested Scondras at about 1:15 a.m. Monday. Investigators said a sergeant pretending to be a 15-year-old boy had several sexually explicit email exchanges with Scondras.

Officers arrested Scondras at a location where he thought he was going to meet the boy.

The 60-year-old Scondras pleaded not guilty Tuesday to several charges including enticement of a child under the age of 16 and assault and battery on a police officer. He's being held on $1500 cash bail and is due back in court in November.

Scondras served on the city council from 1983-1993. He was the city's first openly-gay councilor. Scondras also founded the non-profit organization, Search For A Cure.

Scondras was arrested in 1996 after a teenager accused him of sexual assault in a Boston movie theatre. The charges were eventually dropped.

Once again it's time to play "guess that party affiliation."

Of course Mr. Scondras (what a perfect name) is a Democrat. We know that because CBS refused to mention that trifling detail.

The article does manage to mention that Mr. Scondras has had run-ins with the law before.

Nevertheless, Scondras is a prominent "progressive" Democrat who is apparently held in great esteem by the Democrat party leadership.

Shocking, huh?

The article also failed to note that besides being the founder of the (richly funded) "Search For A Cure" foundation, Mr. Scondras also teaches math at the Learning Lab:

The Learning Lab @ Lesley is an interactive learning and assessment service for children, adolescents and young adults with academic and social challenges. These may include learning disabilities, ADHD, and Asperger syndrome.

Such a selfless guy.
