GOP aide confesses to molesting teen after claiming the boy 'built a fantasy'

Man, the parade of pervs simply won’t end. Two political ones in one week (Cantwell aide), now this.

A former GOP congressional aide has pleaded guilty to molesting two male teens, including the 13-year-old son of a family with whom the staffer lived while working on Capitol Hill.

37-year-old Jeffrey Ray Nielsen, who has worked previously for Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), as well the Republican chair of California’s Orange County, agreed to two felony counts of lewd acts upon a child, reports the Associated Press. A jury had deadlocked at an earlier trial this year — in which Nielsen was accused of engaging in sexual acts with a 14-year-old boy he met on the internet — and prosecutors were prepared to bring additional charges in a retrial.

The plea deal is expected to bring a sentence of three years in state prison, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“Prosecutors contended that Nielsen had met the 14-year-old victim on a gay Internet site and driven the boy to his Ladera Ranch condominium, where the two engaged in oral sex,” the Times reports. “The boy, a high school freshman, told a friend who alerted school authorities.”

The worst part of it is that Nielsen had claimed that the boy made up the whole thing — a fantasy. His lawyer painted Nielsen as “a conservative guy, responsible, caring and very family-oriented. He cares about people.”

Also, thousands of child porn images were found on Nielsen’s work and home computer. Now how stupid is that, loading up your work computer with child porn?!
