The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Hope. Change. Ambien. Rape.

Donnie Ray Williams takes the “war on women” seriously.

A 36-year-old Democratic staffer has been arrested for drugging and sexually assaulting women:

Donny Ray Williams Jr., 36, who served as staff director for a Senate subcommittee and worked in the offices of several members of Congress, gave at least one woman Ambien and assaulted her while she was unconscious, according to court papers.

Williams was charged with 10 counts of first- and second-degree sexual abuse and related charges in connection with attacks that authorities said occurred between July and December 2010. During that time, according to his profile on the LinkedIn Web site, Williams was staff director of a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee.

Oddly enough, the Washington Post couldn’t seem to remember for whom Mr. Williams worked.

Luckily, the Weekly Standard was able to fill in the blanks:

And though the Washington Post story fails to mention it: The staffer has worked only for Democrats, including: Senator Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana, Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Rep. Jan Schakowskay of Illinois, Senator Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, and Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, among others.

Additionally, Williams appears to have worked in the Obama administration as the general deputy assistant secretary for congressional and intergovernmental relations in the Department of Housing and Urban Development. He held this position from April 2009 – October 2010, or 1 year and 7 months.

Like most left-wing news organizations, the Post routinely omits the party association of Democrats who are accused of committing crimes, and they rarely include follow-up reporting (unless they bury it deeply in the print edition, or deep within their web sites). When similar crimes are alleged against Republicans/conservatives/Tea Party types, the party affiliation becomes party of the accusation, if not suggested as a trigger.

It’s shamefully dishonest manipulation of information in the service of politics, and precisely the reason you’ve never heard the same Democrats attempting to silence conservative talk radio have never even hinted at a “fairness doctrine” that demands objectivity from the print media.

    Much like how the Washington Post only noted a “scuffle” at FRC, without mentioning the gay activist and his many bags of Chick-Fil-As.
