Democrat Raped 14-Year-Old Babysitter; Liberal Publisher Helped Cover It Up

Posted on | March 2, 2016 | 11 Comments

Neil Goldschmidt was Secretary of Transportation in the Carter administration from 1979 to 1981, and governor of Oregon 1987-1991, but before that . . .

In the 1970s, Portland, Oregon, mayor Neil Goldschmidt started sleeping with his kids’ babysitter. She was 14 when it started. It didn’t become public, but it also wasn’t a well-guarded secret. Goldschmidt took her to parties with other power brokers in the state, but no one said anything. . . .
That Goldschmidt raped a babysitter didn’t become public until 14 years later later in the wake of a scandal involving Goldschmidt and his lobbying clients, as well as some dogged Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting from Willamette Week that brought it to light. They were referred to as the “light rail mafia” because Goldschmidt was exploiting all of the transportation rules and development restrictions that he himself had put in place when he was in office. The story was that Goldschmidt’s victim had threatened to go public and one of the conditions of the settlement was that he would leave public life. So he became the state’s top lobbyist, not that the move would necessarily prevent him from doing less political damage. . . .

One of those in on the cover-up? Liberal publisher Win McCormack, who co-founded Mother Jones and recently bought The New Republic. Kicker:

In 2011, Elizabeth Lynn Dunham, Goldschmidt’s teenage victim, died in hospice at age 49. She spent most of her life battling addiction and mental illness. Neil Goldschmidt is still with us. When he’s not in Oregon, he lives on an estate in the South of France.

Democrats are the “rape culture” feminists never notice.

UPDATE: Here’s a Weekly Standard story from 2012 in which Mark Hemingway remarks: “Portland is quietly closing in on San Francisco as the American city that has most conspicuously taken leave of its senses.”

    You think that’s bad, just think if some other guy somewhere not related to this case had sex with a college girl and she regretted it the next day! So much more important than what some Democrat did. She prolly initiated it anyway, right leftists????

    By some accounts, Goldschmidt’s assignations with this woman continued on and off from 1974 to 1991 (+/- a year either way). Goldschmidt was married pretty much the whole time and among those looking the other way was the girl’s mother.

    One thing I’d qualify. She was nearly 30 years old when this business ceased. At some point, she ceased being his mark and started being his collaborator.

    One other thing. The woman’s cause of death in 2011 has not been revealed, but one might infer it was the consequence of decades of drug and alcohol abuse. I’ve known people who did this to themselves with no history of having been a middle aged man’s jailbait toy. While Goldschmidt’s corruption of this woman as an adolescent is godawful, it was only one vector in the many influences on her life. I don’t think it’s fair to attribute much of her subsequent dissipation to him.

    Damn straight that’s more important. College is where they tie the nice little bow on their previous12 years of publik skool brainwashing, before they send the little snowflakes out into the world to share their stoopid, while their parents sit by, oblivious and uncaring.

    How about uncaring parents as one of the vectors? If that had been me, I guarantee they never would’ve found Goldschmidt’s body after my male relatives did what had to be done. I pity that girl, that she had no one to defend her from predators.

    Only Republicans and conservatives rape women; Democrats and leftists simply provide them with individualized sex education programs.

    That tweet is poor rhetoric. The way human brains work, the first sentence lands.

    Mr. McCain: Ever since your banishment from Twitter I’ve been trying to tweet even more of your articles than I did before, to keep your name out there. Might I suggest a “Tweet this article” button to make it easier?

    Also: how about a “Follow me on Twitter” icon, with a link to “You can’t, and here’s why”, the story of your banishment.
