75 Year Old Politician (Democrat) Fondles Breasts of 103 M-I-L Who Has Dementia
(MIL = Mother In Law.)
This is so disgusting. I’m also at a fail to see how my fellow conservatives keep promoting these views that marriage makes makes men more godly and mature, or how being in a nuclear family makes society better in some fashion, when I see news stories of married men who are doing things like fondling elderly women who have dementia.
All the dirt bag in this story is concerned about is that this act has him in trouble and may ruin his career. He doesn’t care that he objectified a woman, and his own MIL, plus, she has dementia. This guy is a sicko.
The article mentions that this guy is a Democrat.
A former Pennsylvania politician has been convicted of indecent assault after admitting that he fondled the breasts of his 103-year-old mother-in-law suffering from dementia — the “biggest mistake” of his life, he said.
William Spingler, former commissioner of Radnor Township, said during a hearing Thursday that the “stupid, harmless act” has destroyed his life, (Link): the Delaware County Daily Times reports.
“I mean, my reputation is destroyed, my business is destroyed,” said Spingler, 75. “It was just something that I shouldn’t have done.”
Spingler, a Democrat who stepped down from the Radnor Board of Commissioners in 2015, admitted fondling his mother-in-law at a nursing home on two occasions in December, but denied making any sexual contact on a third occasion.
Spingler told Philly.com in January from his real estate office in Paoli that he had cared for the woman since his first wife — the woman’s daughter — died in 2007. She lived with him for eight years until she was placed in a nursing home in Radnor when her dementia worsened.
…Spingler said the woman usually recognized him during his visits to the nursing home, but that changed after a birthday party on Dec. 8. One week later, Spingler admitted touching the woman’s breast for “shock value,” or to alert her to his presence, he said.
“I got nothing, no recognition out of her and I made the biggest mistake of my life,” he said. “I thought for shock value, you know, I could get her to say something, let her know I was there. I touched her breast. It was the dumbest thing I ever did, but I did it to get her attention and let her know that I was there.”
