Republican Vermont State Senator Normal McAllister was arrested for both sexual assault and for pressuring tenants to pay for rent with sex.

The Republican lawmaker pleaded not guilty to those charges yesterday.

Prosecutors charge that McAllister tried to solicit sex from tenants and employees in negotiations over rent payments. One woman specifically said McAllister “would ask her for sexual favors in exchange for her continuing to live and work at the property.”

And there’s this unbelievable tidbit:

Police also allege that McAllister asked the second woman if she would be interested in traveling with him to several farms in the Richford area to have sex with migrant farm laborers in exchange for cash. McAllister said he and the woman could split the profits, but she refused the offer, court papers state.

There was also a third woman who he had allegedly sexually assaulted on numerous occasions. The police recorded some of McAllister’s phone calls and in one of them, he apologized for causing one woman “physical and emotional pain.”

    If these charges are true, he’s exactly the type of person we want running our government.

    Pitch him off nearest tall cliff after the trial.

    If he’s found guilty, he should be castrated, then sent to jail.

    now THERE’s a few repressed issues, eh? good ol’ GOP family values in action!

    My, my, how quickly we have forgotten about former US Representative Barney “Butt Man” Frank and his boy toy who was hooking out of his house in DC.

      Only in your dreams, my little hash brown.

      Nice way to deflect from the subject at hand. EVERYBODY was fooled! Well, except for those who can READ.

      • John Tarter May 10th, 2015 at 11:04 pm

        It’s true, only Barney wouldn’t resign. Democrat values forbids such an action.

        • bpollen May 10th, 2015 at 11:11 pm

          Still deflecting. I said we forgot only in your feverish dreams. But keep flogging that dead horse, mon petit Tot, and maybe, just maybe, if you wish HARD enough, somebody might NOT identify you as a troll from the first post. Probably just after that dead horse reanimates and mounts a conservative troll.

          Was Barney Frank, indicted, charged or convicted?
          Answer: No.
          Just like Benghazi and Hillary, all you have is you right wing wacko radio innuendoes, rumors and outright lies.
          Next time, if you want to deflect from a story about a family values “pimp”, try posting a real story based on facts.

          I don’t know about “Democrat values”, Democratic values usually demand people like this resign, while Vitter gets a standing ovation and Fox News puts a (D) after the names of both Mark Sanford and Mark Foley.

      Liar… but since you are a republican you are incapable of ever telling the truth, the fact checking sites have concluded that republicans LIE 300% more than democrats.

    • tracey marie May 11th, 2015 at 3:57 pm

      you are filth

  6. frambley1 May 11th, 2015 at 12:34 am

    And let me guess, this guy also routinely votes against the rights of landlords to use sexual favors as payment for rent? What a hypocrite!

  7. CandideThirtythree May 11th, 2015 at 2:25 am

    More of those family values that republicans are always screeching about?

    (Police also allege that McAllister asked the second woman if she would be interested in traveling with him to several farms in the Richford area to have sex with migrant farm laborers in exchange for cash.)

    I can’t stop picturing an Elephant donning a purple pimp hat with Superfly playing in the background. GOP the P stand for Pimp.
