Police interviewed Rhodes on January 25 and also on January 28, 2017. He waived his Miranda rights both times. During the January 25 interview, Rhodes admitted to police that he had had sex with an underage male and an underage female. He also said that he did not know how old either victim was at the time but later admitted in the January 28 interview that he “probably knew the victims were 17 when he engaged in sexual acts with them.”
Rhodes admitted meeting the male victim through Grindr, and also acknowledged that the victim told him he was 17 years old. Rhodes said that he does not remember if he had sex with the victim in Gresham but said that he might have had sex there and that they did have sex in Troutdale. Also in the affidavit, the Oregon Youth Authority said that in 2015 Rhodes had told them that he sex with the male victim, and that he was on probation at the time for First-Degree Sex Abuse and First-Degree Sodomy.
IIRC, the former Democrat Mayor of Portland did something similar with an underage boy, and the left insisted it was not a big deal.
But the important thing is, he isn’t a hypocrite. Because if he said that molesting teenagers was wrong and then did it, that would be wrong. (Is a ‘SARCASM’ tag necessary?) If he were a Christian, a conservative, or a Republican activist … these offenses would discredit his entire movement and be a national news story. But since he’s an anti-Trump Democratic-Socialist Progressive, it’s a local crime story and no big deal.
Speaking of child molesters, the Rotherham Sex Gang chants ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they are sentenced to prison.
