Any man in his 30s willing to do anything sexual with an underage person is a mentally broken predator. I'm 36 and find it less than ethical to be with anyone younger than 25.
And that is a totally arbitrary number you just pulled out of your arse.
What matters, in reality, is what is legal.
Once a young lady is of the age of consent under the law, it doesn't matter how old the guy is, 38, or 68, if the girl is into it, and she isn't coerced in any way, then it is legal. Creepy, yes, and his constituents deserve to know about it, but... it is still legal.

That's the extent of the "blackmail." No claims that they would make anything disappear or anything like that. At least that's according to the accused.

It is fair to say I'm bias, but that bias is against both parties.
I'm not going after him purely because he's a republican... I think he should be removed if this is proven because he's clearly morally bankrupt if he thinks he can touch kids as a public figure.
I'm sure there are times I'm hypocritical, but I can't recall a time I've defended a politician for messing around with underage girls. What I do find hypocritical though is how people from both parties will go after politicians for sexual misconduct with adults, sometimes even consentual just extramarital, but defend their guy with fake news or "technically its legal". I didn't say the guy should go to jail,I said he shouldn't represent us. We all hold employees at place of work higher than the bar of legality.
