GOP'er Busted for Heading Young Republicans

Damn! Will the GOP ever learn to keep their mouths shut? Read the below story and keep in mind that Glenn was charged with Sexual Battery for doing this exact same thing in 1998 (with the victim's girlfriend asleep in the same room!). So he was, of course, the natural choice to head the Young Republicans.

Former GOP Chief Pleads Guilty To Deviant Conduct:
Glenn Murphy Faces Jail Time, Sex Offender Status

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. -- The former chairman of the Clark County Republican Party has pleaded guilty to criminal deviate conduct.

Glenn Murphy Jr. had a top spot in local Republican politics and was making a name for himself as president of the Young Republicans National Federation. But after a Young Republicans get-together last July, a young man claimed Murphy made a bold sexual advance on him.

Police reports said Murphy shared a bunk bed with his victim, a 22-year-old who had had too much to drink, and the next morning the victim said he awoke to find Murphy performing a sex act on him. The victim said he told Murphy to stop and pushed him away.

Prosecutor Stanley Levco said other incidents involving Murphy would have been presented as evidence had the case gone to trial. A Clarksville police report shows Murphy was involved in a similar incident in 1988, but no charges were filed.

Levco said he thinks that may have been another reason Murphy pleaded guilty as charged.

Criminal deviate conduct is a Class B felony in Indiana. If the judge accepts his plea, Murphy will have to register as a sex offender. Sentencing is set for June 30.

Murphy resigned his political posts when the allegations surfaced.

“I will essentially be the mouthpiece and effective leader for the tens of thousands of Young Republicans, 18 to 40, across the country,” Murphy told the Jeffersonville News and Tribune after he was elected in July 2007.
