Advisor on UK anti-porn web filters may be something of a subject matter expect. http://t.co/XyShno1N3y

You have to wonder whether 62-year-old bachelor aristocrat Patrick Rock was chosen to be Downing Street’s child pornography expert, or whether he volunteered. Looks like probably the latter:
One of David Cameron’s closest aides has been arrested on suspicion of offences relating to child pornography.
Patrick Rock, who was one of the government’s advisors on policy for online pornography filters, was arrested last month after police examined computers in No 10 Downing Street.
Mr Rock resigned as a policy advisor to the Prime Minister soon afterwards.
No 10 said he was arrested last month “a few hours” after Downing Street contacted police.
The former deputy head of the No 10 Policy Unit has been close to Mr Cameron for two decades. The two men worked for Michael Howard when he was Home Secretary in the 1990s.
Oh, sure, those decadent British aristocrats, but wait — there’s more dreadful perversion, somewhat closer to home:
The pastor of a Baton Rouge Baptist church was arrested Saturday on accusations he raped a 20-year-old mentally disabled woman who had sex with the pastor at her father’s request, according to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
David “Scott” Lemley, 43, pastor of New Harmony Baptist Church, on Antioch Road, was booked Saturday into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a count of aggravated rape.
Lemley also was booked on a count of theft of a motor vehicle and is accused of giving away a car — which he was supposed to be working on as a favor for someone — to a member of his church, who then sold the vehicle to a scrap metal company for about $250 in early February, arrest documents show.
According to an arrest warrant, Lemley is accused of having sex with a 20-year-old woman “with the medical documentation mental capacity of a 7-year-old” after the woman’s father told the woman to have sex with Lemley because the pastor’s wife had been ill and bedridden.
The woman’s father was arrested in November and remains in Parish Prison on a variety of sex counts, including aggravated rape. His name is being withheld to protect the identify of his daughter.
“Allegedly”! It’s important to add “allegedly.”
