GOP big shot convicted of bizarre sex crime

Glenn Murphy Jr. is the former chairman of the Republican Party in Clark County, Indiana, and also headed the Young Republican National Federation.

But now, he's admitted to charges of criminal deviate conduct for performing oral sex on a sleeping man at a party. He may face 2 years in prison as part of a plea bargain.

According to the accusation, the victim of this sex crime awoke and found Murphy performing oral sex on him.

It's getting to the point where all you need to do to identify the sex offenders in your community is look at your local GOP website for the list of officials. Glenn Murphy Jr. wasn't just an occasional Republican voter but a chairman of the Young Republican National Federation and of a county party. And this isn't the first story like this. Once every month or so, a story like this emerges about some Republican chair somewhere.

Imagine if you can what the national uproar from the blogosphere would be if a Democratic official had been involved in a scandal that was only one-tenth as bad.
