James you are right there are a lot of unanswered questions. Snd of course, everyone has feet of ckay. Most if us just dont know it. what was a 15 year old doing on an adult website? And the person being taken advantage of may have been Bean. He might have thought the young man was if age. But they say, not knowing is not an excuse. I guess he should have checked the drivers license.

Anyway, it's all speculation. And I still hate to see this happen.

The gay mayor of Portland, Sam Adams, had a similar underage liason(s). I dont know about Oregon. Must be something in the water. The "gay Lolita virus"? Is that Lolito?

@Daniel W, in enlightened countries, such as those free of religious bigotry, and where the age of consent is more in line with what we know about not only child development but scientific theories of nature over nurture causality, fifteen is not subject to statutory rape. Our laws need revamping considerably, bearing in mind the old 7's "law" based on the notion that 7's are a lifetime change number so that laws were passed to apply to those under 7, over 14, and, as is currently the law with regard to drinking, 21. Also ignored by the report is the level of sexual sophistication the boy had. I'd like to defend these men in court. Blow this whole issue up. For all we know, that 15 year old knew more about sex than both of the adults combined.

Very upsetting news.

Bean, 66, a prominent gay rights activist and major Democratic Party fundraiser, was arrested at his home in Southwest Portland and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center at 10:12 a.m. Wednesday. The indictment charges Bean with two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor, police said ... Both Bean and Lawson are accused of having a sexual encounter with the same 15-year-old boy in a hotel in Eugene last year. They had arranged the encounter with the teen after meeting him via a website, investigators allege.

I suppose, the 15 year old may have posed as older - the hookup websites require uses attest to being 18 or older.  I don't know.  And people are innocent until proven guilty.  And there are claims of an extortion ring

But it's still very upsetting news.

In India, gays can't get married, but monkeys can.  ">200 people attend monkey wedding".

OK as long as they are not gay monkeys.

I remember when dadt cane about. I think it was Sam Nunn who was so against gays in military even though we were already there. When clinton caved, that felt like such a betrayal. Fortunately, he was such a traditionally virtuous man, lining the example of traditional marriage, so no one can accuse him of hypocrisy on sexual issues. uh huh.

So right, Daniel. As the old Mellencamp song goes, "Ain't that America!" Don't Ask, Don't Tell was about as juvenile and absurd a policy as can be imagined, but I guess it was the most Clinton figured he could get.

Bertold, on the "114,000 veterans who were dishonorably discharged for just being themselves" - I remember thinking, when I was honorably discharged, "whew, that was close!"  A big weight was lifted off of me.  What a horrible way to treat people, especially people who were drafted, or enlisted, to risk their lives and give up their rights, to protect this country that so hated them and deprived them of the liberties they protected.
