More GOP values
This upstanding member of the community, Thomas Adams, is the mayor of the Chicago area town of Green Oaks, and is a former chairman of the Lake County Republican Central Committee. He also spents time on the net trolling for and sharing kiddie porn pix. Nice.
Adams, 67, faces 11 counts of disseminating child pornography and two counts of possession. Lake County Judge Victoria Rossetti set his bond at $100,000.
Prosecutor Patricia Fix said sheriff’s and state’s attorney’s investigators first received tips on Adams’ alleged illegal activities in March 2005. Adams allegedly sent child pornography, via attachments to e-mail, to undercover police in Clearwater, Fla.
The alleged pornography includes both still images and at least one explicit movie of a boy masturbating, Fix said.
…Defense attorney Thomas Briscoe argued for a minimal bond, saying Adams “has no criminal record, and these are all images, there are no live victims.” Briscoe added that Adams “has been involved with public service most of his life.”
Well that‘s a real mitigating factor, isn’t it?
