Leaving commentary to a minimum, since this guy is really only well known for his past in the local political scene.

Former political boss Jimmy Germano, a North Greenbush Democrat, apparently propositioned a boy for sex in Vero Beach Florida.  When that plan didn’t go so well, Germano decided to proposition the mother who had confronted her son’s stalker.

Germano was arrested and released on $15,000 bail.

Via the Times Union:

Former North Greenbush Democratic political boss F. James “Jimmy” Germano was arrested in Vero Beach, Fla., for asking for sex from boy and his mother.

The Vero Beach Police Department confirmed that Germano, 83, who controlled the Democratic Party in the town for decades before retiring to Florida, was arrested Nov. 2 on felony charges of procuring a minor for prostitution and soliciting a prostitute. He also was charged with two misdemeanor counts of stalking.

He is free on $15,000 bail, officials said.

Germano was active in town Democratic politics and patronage for four decades and lead the town party for 31 years, before he stepped down Aug. 26, 2002.

According to a report by Vero Beach Detective James Kelly, Germano approached a 12-year-old boy who was walking to his bus stop at 6:54 a.m. that day. In a statement to police, the boy said an older, heavyset man approached him driving a black Cadillac with New York license plates.

“He stopped and asked me if I wanted a ride and sexual stuff and I kept walking to my bus stop,” the boy said in a written statement.

The boy then used his cellphone to call his mother, who rushed from her home to the bus stop. The mother, 31, said in the statement that she was then approached by Germano in his car and repeatedly propositioned for sex.

Jim Franco has a copy of the police report, and his own accounts of Germano’s erratic behavior dating back to the ’90s, including this gem:

While he was trying to take over the Democratic Party Committee back in the 1990s after Ed McDonough resigned there was a battle on the floor and one person called him a thug. He stood up and said: “You call me a thug again and I’m going to break their F***ing knees.”

Nothing quite says peacenik like a threat of knee-capping.

France’s Plans to Legalize Gay Marriage Include Banning the Words ‘Mother’ and ‘Father’

September 25, 2012 at 5:41 pm (Father, France, Gay Marriage, Mother, Parents)

Unreal.

Via the UK Telegraph:

The move, which has outraged Catholics, means only the word “parents” would be used in identical marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples.

The draft law states that “marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender”.

It says all references to “mothers and fathers” in the civil code – which enshrines French law – will be swapped for simply “parents”.

The law would also give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples.

Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told France’s Catholic newspaper La Croix: “Who is to say that a heterosexual couple will bring a child up better than a homosexual couple, that they will guarantee the best conditions for the child’s development?”

Last I checked, and my science may yet be a little rusty these days, it doesn’t matter how a child is conceived, you still need a mother and father and their respective cells to create a life.  No?  So the terminology is still viable.

If a gay couple raises a child, then they are the parents. But that child still has one mother and one father, no matter who raises them.
