Are Only Republicans Perverts?

Asked half facetiously: Are only Republicans perverts?
Now comes the sordid tale of Ted Klaudt, a former Republican lawmaker in South Dakota and rancher who is accused of molesting his own foster children and legislative pages.
Klaudt, 49, faces a long list of charges: eight counts of rape, two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, two counts of witness tampering, sexual contact with a person under 16, and stalking.

Three victims were foster children between the ages of 15 and 19 who lived with Klaudt's family. One is a cousin of one of those girls, and the fifth is a friend of Klaudt's daughter.
The girls say Klaudt had them convinced they could earn up to $20,000 by donating their eggs to a fertility clinic. And even though he has no medical training, the girls say Klaudt did all the supposed "exams" and "procedures" himself.
