WARNING: THE REPORT ISSUED BY THE COMMITTEE OF GENERAL INVESTIGATING IS GRAPHIC.
Prior to voting to expel State Representative Bryan Slaton, the Committee of General Investigating issued a report on their investigation into allegations against Slaton which included providing alcohol to a minor, having sex with a staff member, and threats. The report is just 16 pages long and is chock full of gross details.
Slaton is accused of providing alcohol to a number of under aged staff members including a 19 year old identified as “Sophie” (not her real name). Slaton is a holier than thou, twice married, former pastor who has led the republican efforts against the gay community. Sophie is probably also a right wing holy Christian who porked a married man 26 years older than she is. From the report:
Sophie A. told Emily J. that she and Slaton had sex in various places throughout his apartment and that it “went on the entire night.” Sophie A. told Emily J. that it felt weird to have sex with him [Slaton] with pictures of his wife in the apartment.
Yep. That is so very Christian of both of them. But it gets worse. Here is another snippet:
Emily J. recalled her conversation with Sophie A. on the morning of April 1. Emily J. asked Sophie A. “did you have sex with him [Slaton]?” and Sophie A. replied “yes.” Sophie A. told Emily J. that she had lost her virginity and that she bled a great deal as a result. Sophie A. told Emily J. that “they” had to change the sheets the next morning because of the blood. Sophie A. had bloody underwear with her that she attributed to her loss of virginity. Sophie A. told Emily J. that she was keeping the underwear as a memento from the night. Emily J. saw bloody underwear on Sophie A.’s bedside table.
I warned you this report was graphic. Now this isn’t graphic but it is disturbing. Republicans think they are above the law.
Other than Sophie A., all employees of Slaton are male. All five men employed by Slaton were represented by the same attorney, Connor Ellington. Ellington is employed by the Law Office of Tony MacDonald. Upon the advice of Ellington, all five men employed by Slaton refused to meet with the independent investigator for an interview, even after being informed that a person must cooperate with an investigation in accordance with the Committee Rules.
You can read the entire report here. I hope the Committee has referred Slaton to the District Attorney. What he did was gross, illegal, and representative of the current Republican Party.
