'via Blog this'Eric Bodenweiser, a former Republican candidate for the Delaware state Senate with ties to Christine O’Donnell and the Tea Party, was indicted Monday on charges that he sexually abused a child.
Bodenweiser, who suspended and then ended his campaign earlier this month, was indicted on 113 felony charges, including 39 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and 74 counts of unlawful sexual contact, according to The News Journal. Bodenweiser is currently being held pending bail on charges that he sexually abused the victim between 1987 and 1990.
What makes this particularly irony is that Bodenweiser is (or was) a member of the Delaware Family Policy Council. The group tackles such issues as “… crime, poverty, divorce, unwanted pregnancies, academic failure, and teen suicide.”
