#FreeKate Update: Accused Teenager Attends Fundraising Party at Gay Bar

Posted on | June 7, 2013 | 30 Comments

There has actually been news in the story of the accused sex offender who, for a few days last month, became a gay-rights poster girl.

The biggest news? Support for the “Free Kate” movement has utterly collapsed, and even gay activists like Stampp Corbin of LGBT Weekly are calling b.s. on the victimhood narrative:

What makes Kaitlyn so special? Is it because she is a photogenic cheerleader and also a lesbian?
There are many young males in this country serving prison terms for exactly what Kaitlyn allegedly has done. Will their convictions be reversed if Kaitlyn gets off? No. That’s what concerns me so much. Do we really want to send the message that we only care when it is someone from our community?

The facts of the case simply don’t support the victimhood narrative, which was what had attracted nationwide media attention — including a Today show appearance — and now the case is simply a routine cops-and-courts story for the local newspapers to report:

VERO BEACH — Kaitlyn Hunt’s attorney is asking for a postponement in Hunt’s underage sex case so per-trial preparations may be completed, according to court records.
“The motion (request) is made in good faith and not for the purposes of delay,” attorney Julia Graves wrote. Indian River Circuit Judge Robert Pegg will consider the request in court Friday morning.
Hunt’s case — she is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old when she was 18, an adult — now is scheduled for a June 20 hearing to decide whether it is ready to go before a jury. . . .
Graves has said she will not only be defending Hunt, she will be challenging the state law under which Hunt is being prosecuted.
Hunt has waived her right to a speedy trial and Graves said she is preparing a number of motions that need to be heard before trial. Also, the attorney said she is still investigating the case.
Prosecutors say they want to move ahead with a trial and want the defense to show what it has so far.

Her lawyer is asking for a postponement of the trial — because “she is still investigating the case” — and her national support has evaporated, but apparently the Rosa Parks of Jailbait doesn’t realize her 15 minutes of fame are over:

Notice that the hours of the “Free Kate” party were 10 p.m.-2 a.m. Wednesday night — the night before Kaitlyn’s high school graduation. What a wholesome environment for an all-American family:

Anybody out there familiar with the phrase “boundary issues”? I mean, here you have a family that doesn’t see anything inappropriate about having an 18-year-old high school senior (who is awaiting trial on two felony counts) partying past midnight at a gay bar.

And people are calling them out on their mythical victimhood:

Oh, right: Kaitlyn’s father implies there is exculpatory evidence that “can’t be released to the public.” And given Steve Hunt’s record of dishonesty — he got kicked off the police force for lying, and was arrested last year for fraud, and his petition deliberately misrepresented the ages of both girls — everybody’s just supposed to take Steve Hunt’s word for this, I guess.

The evidence as we know it is summarized in the case report by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office, which includes some relevant information not mentioned in the affidavit, e.g.:

“They then started texting each other. Kaitlyn would ask [the 14-year-old] if she liked girls and said that she would date her if she did.”

. . . and also:

“The conversation took place via [Facebook private message] on January 9, 2013. During the conversation Kaitlyn admits to having a relationship [with the 14-year-old] and also [acknowledges] the fact that she knows she is 18 and there can be consequences for their relationship.”

“Consequences for their relationship” — imagine that!

We conclude with a message from Kaitlyn’s younger sister (the one she assisted in the 2-on-1 beatdown of another girl) that Emily Hunt posted to Twitter before she took her account private:

You stay classy, Hunt family! Should have taken the plea bargain . . .

    I’d like to see Hunt’s attorney use the news that the federal government has un-warranted recordings and screen captures of Hunt’s phone calls and emails in which she coordinated the tryst. It worked for Obama’s mentors William Ayers and Bernadine Dorn.
    Actually, that the Feds have done that and considering the jurisprudence surrounding un-warranted collection of evidence may get a crap-ton of felons released.

    Who knows? Maybe she’s near-sighted, which could explain why she didn’t know that diddling 14-year-olds in a school toilet stall was a felony.

    Now it can be told: as soon as OJ gets out, he and Steven Hunt will be searching every golf course in Florida for the exculpatory evidence and the real killers (who may be disguised in Free Kate tee shirts).

    Emily hasn’t been seen lately – has anyone checked the bathroom stalls?

    Was this event at a male gay bar or at a lesbian bar? While I’m sure lesbian patrons won’t mind having Kaitlyn Hunt around, they probably do not want to be within a mile of someone like her father.

    Good work, Stacy. Even though this story is starting to unravel, keep shining the spotlight on these horrible people; they so richly deserve it (not to mention jail time too…)

    Playing the gay victim card is pretty much her only way to get off… er… that said she’s probably going to wish she took the plea deal.

    Kristin, over at the Canadian blog, Mondays with Mac, is not “telling Paige’s story.” As usual, she insists that an 18 year old adult who can drive, vote, have sex with any other adult, is a “peer” to a 14 year old.

    Thanks for keeping the light on this lunacy.
    So crazy that many in the LGBT community cannot or will not recognize they are being used by the Hunt family.
    How convenient of so many to forget that there is also a 14 yr old victim here who also claims to be ‘gay’.

    I’m curious as to what evidence the defense has that would turn a fourteen-year-old girl into an eighteen-year-old.

    Actually, her agent is shopping her for some indie film roles as a “Naughty Student Librarian” type. When the little girls giggle, she puts her finger to her mouth to shush them. When they persist, well, the stacks are so much more romantic than a bathroom stall, don’t you think?

    Stacy, you deserve most of the credit for making sure she didn’t just get away with the “poor gay me” defense. It had strong momentum in the first few days, and our modern press cannot bear to examine a meme that fits liberal fantasies.

    If you hadn’t stood strong for the law and its merit in those days, they well might have gotten away with the ruse. You put up with much abuse from the Disturbed, the Demented, and the Delusional along the way.

    Unfortunately, there is no fitting award for such work. Pulitzers are a joke if Janet Cooke and Eugene Robinson and dozens of other hacks win them.

    Perhaps we could arrange for Giada DeLaurentis to prepare you some chocolate fettuccine with porcetta.

    What a pack of lies. It doesn’t come close to matching the public record, anyway. Poor Kristin seems to be someone who wants to believe these sex offenders are being targeted because they are lesbians. The fact that many young men have served time for “relationships” with girls 14 or under seems beyond her cognitive ability.

    “So crazy that many in the LGBT community cannot or will not recognize they are being used by the Hunt family.”

    It’s not crazy, it’s what they are. They protect their own. And can you imagine what this means when you have people like this in positions of authority over kids who are being sexually harassed, seduced, or exploited? If they aren’t preying on the kids themselves, they are going out of their way to protect the perpetrators, every time one of them are homosexual or bisexual. The pink mafia problem is no exaggeration or loony fabrication.

    People who claim that “sexual orientation” doesn’t impact a person’s ability to do their job are lying. The majority of LGBT have a need for adopting a homosexual agenda and will act accordingly.
