Republican Home candidate Anthony Bouchard admitted to statutorily raping and getting a 14-year-old lady pregnant when he was 18.
U.S. Home candidate Anthony Bouchard had a relationship with and impregnated a 14-year-old lady when he was 18, he informed the Star-Tribune late Thursday, hours after he disclosed the connection in a Fb Dwell video to his supporters.
“So, backside line, it’s a narrative after I was younger, two youngsters, lady will get pregnant,” he stated within the Fb Dwell video. “You’ve heard these tales earlier than. She was just a little youthful than me, so it’s just like the Romeo and Juliet story.”
Bouchard apparently has by no means learn Romeo and Juliet, as a result of his story is that of an grownup raping a 14-year-old lady and getting her pregnant. That’s against the law, not a Shakespearian tragedy.
Bouchard has been producing pleasure as a result of he’s the Trumper that will probably be primarying Liz Cheney for having the nerve to each vote to question Trump and arise for democracy.
Given his background as a rapist of minors, he’s the proper Trump-style candidate, similar to Matt Gaetz.
Spinning this a Romeo and Juliet model love story minimizes statutory rape, and leaves out the details. The couple divorced after three years and his ex-wife dedicated suicide by the age of 20, and that he’s estranged from his son.
Republicans appear to reward criminality and immorality, however one suspects that Trump’s chosen major challenger to Liz Cheney is imploding.
