(TeaParty.org) – The archdiocese of Philadelphia is facing all too familiar criticism following the revelations that the former head of the sex abuse victim’s fund is connected to Jeffery Epstein, and is in an alleged abuser himself.
George Mitchell (pictured above), former Democratic senator from Maine, who was chosen to oversee the archdiocesan Independent Reconciliation and Reparations Program (IRRP), has now been accused of serial sexual abuse of an underage girl decades ago.
The accusations come from Virginia Roberts Guiffre, who also accuses Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell of being his recruiter. Approaching her in 1999, when she was 15 years old, and coercing her into having sex with the supposed financier.
Guiffre says that the abuse went on for 3 years (until she was 18), during which time she was kept as a “sex slave”, forced to service high power men including George Mitchell.
Guiffre brought the accusations in 2015, in Florida, but it had been ordered sealed until earlier this month.
Since then, Mitchell has denied the accusations, denied ever having had contact with Guifree, saying, “I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre.”.
However; Mitchell wasn’t able to put as much light between himself and Epstein in his denial. He said “In my contacts with Mr. Epstein I never observed or suspected any inappropriate conduct with underage girls,” Mitchell added. “I only learned of his actions when they were reported in the media related to his prosecution in Florida. We have had no further contact.”.
Seems that everyone that knew Epstein managed to fly in his private jets, visit his mansions, and even his private islands, and yet none of them ever noticed the underage sex slaves. I would think that even with pagan temples, stuffed poodles, paintings of Bill Clinton in drag, and other creepy decorations that the sight of a few underage sex slaves would still be enough to get one’s attention.
After all, it’s not like Epstein’s behavior went entirely unnoticed. Court filings from 2011 state that Epstein got himself banned for life from President Trump’s Florida resort Mar-a-Lago for inappropriate behavior towards young women. But I’m sure he never acted that way in front of the many accused in private, just at Trump’s resort.
Maybe Mitchell is a bad judge of age, but with his relationship with Epstein being known as early as 2003, and Epstein pleading guilty to sexually abusing an underage girl in 2008, who the hell gave Mitchell the job of being the head of the IRRP in 2018?
Does putting the friend of a known sexual predator in charge of the compensation fund for victims of predatory priests sound like a good idea?
Was R Kelly busy?
