Yawn. If Boyd, Snow, or Thomas was charged with the exact same thing, then pleaded guilty to the exact same thing, you, Amanda (along with jogger, twinmom, et al), would be defending them just as vociferously as you're currently calling for Dumler's balls on a plate.
Wrong where I'm concerned. Party affiliation has nothing to do with what I feel about Mr. Dumler. His plead to sexual battery didn't say whether the victim was Republican, Democrat, Independent, Conservative or Liberal. What he admitted to was wrong, and would have been wrong for anyone.

Was anyone a witness to their bedroom activities?
Just Dumler and his victim. Both of them have publicly stated that he was guilty, so why is there even a question?

He should have fought the charges if he maintains his innocence.

Like Laura Welch (Bush)?

It's a nice jab, but it's not quite the same thing.

I am not a county resident, but did I just read in that article that there is ANOTHER board member serving jail time right now? Good grief, is it the Board of Supervisors or the Board of Criminals????? Pretty soon they will have to wait until visitation hour at the county jail or wait until they all get released to get together to vote on anything.
That is not true......no other board members are in jail!,

I would appreciate it if you would refrain from expressing MY opinions, especially when you are incorrectly reporting them. I don't care about race, religion, gender, national origin, political party affiliation, shoe size, weight, or color of the individual's nail polish. The BOS, and other elected officials, are supposed to be LEADERS of the community, and non-violent. That would exclude convicts, sexual batterers, the mentally ill, and anyone guilty of a crime. If an individual applies for employment with the County, your application will be rejected if you have a criminal background that suggests that you are unfit.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I sincerely doubt that the County would employ someone who has a conviction for sexual battery, and that should apply to Supervisors as well.

Dumler's presence on the BOS will continue to be a distraction from its mission, because the masses will not forget, or forgive him for betraying their trust. He needs to resign NOW.

Take a look at the smirk on his face. He's guilty and he'll do it again.

Statistics on Females

•Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.(U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey)
•1 out of 6 women have been victims of rape or attempted rape in their lifetime.(National Institute of Justice & Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.)
•38% of women who have been raped were ages 14-17.(PSU)
•60% of rapes/sexual assaults are not reported to the police.(U.S. Department of Justice)
•73% of sexual assaults were committed by a non-stranger.(U.S. Department of Justice)
•38% of rapists are a friend of acquaintance to the victim.(U.S. Department of Justice)
•92% of homeless women have experienced severe physical and or/sexual violence in their lifetime.(PCAR)
•Up to 38% of women identify sexual abuse as a reason for leaving their home.(PCAR)

One statistic I found particularly disturbing is:

•Girls ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault.(RAINN)

The trouble with politicizing Dumler's conviction (hard not to do since he's a seated politician on a perfectly divided BOS), is that victims rights get trashed. A girl or woman who encounters sexual abuse, especially from a well-known person or politician or any man with a little money for that matter, will just fold before she even thinks about pressing charges, after all, "He will just deny it" will rule, and that's what has gone on here. Women all over the county now see that any man, even a high-profile man, can get away with his crime and worse, that public sentiment will be against the accuser! This is so warped! For the sake of abused women everywhere, you Dumler apologists need to admonish his behavior and ask him to resign. He may never resign, but the least you can do is side with the victims and future victims so that if they are ever battered in this way, that they feel they can come forward. When you defend a convicted criminal like him, or in the case of one political supporter, out the accuser(s), you set the clock back decades on what we have been trying to achieve in the protection of women against sexual assault.

ok so you are one of those people who make up stuff to try to make a point whitest disregarding the facts of the situation. like most of the post here, time waster!
i see it as no weapon or restraints, then get up and go! we are talking about adults here are we not, not a vulnerable minor? when you have a 3-some, the situation can get complicated since more emotions are involved and that is what we are dealing with here.
Where in the world are you getting threesome from. No where ANY WHERE in ANY story or court document was there even the SLIGHTEST implication that it was a threesome!

you obviously lack reading skills...dummy! i said they need to define the rules/have an understanding, whatever you want to call it. once again a poster making up garbage to suit their needs...you are a time waster!
Wow...you are so unbelievably ignaorant. The rules...as stated by the law...say that when one of the people engaged in the encounter says "STOP" you stop. If not, you risk being charged with rape.
