Republican House candidate Anthony Bouchard admitted he legally raped a 14-year-old girl and made pregnant at age 14.
The Casper Star Tribune reported:
The US House of Representatives candidate Anthony Bouchard was in a relationship with a 14-year-old girl and impregnated it when she was 18. He announced this to the Star Tribune late Thursday, hours after telling his supporters the relationship on a Facebook Live video.
"The bottom line is it's a story when I was young, two teenagers, a girl getting pregnant," he said on the Facebook Live video. "You've heard these stories before. She was a little younger than me, so it's like the story of Romeo and Juliet."
Bouchard apparently never read Romeo and Juliet because his story is that of an adult raping a 14-year-old girl and making her pregnant. This is a crime, not a Shakespearean tragedy.
Bouchard has created a stir for being the trumper who will primarily blame Liz Cheney for having the courage to vote against Trump as well as advocating democracy.
His background as a minor rapist makes him, like Matt Gaetz, the perfect Trump-style candidate.
Filming a Romeo and Juliet style love story minimizes legal rape and leaves out the facts. The couple, divorced after three years, and their ex-wife committed suicide at the age of 20 and he is estranged from his son.
Republicans appear to reward crime and immorality, but Trump's main chosen opponent is believed to be imploding against Liz Cheney.
