Goldschmidt (I apologize for the language in this headline)

I am at a loss to expand on the nauseating quality of the following passage, from an obituary about a woman molested by ex-Oregon governor and ex-ASUO President Neil Goldschmidt as a teenager, which appeared in the Oregonian today:

Word of the rape eventually reached Goldschmidt. “I subsequently learned she was just brutally assaulted,” Neil Goldschmidt told The Oregonian in May 2004, “and bad things happened up there for which she’s probably blameless, in the sense that she didn’t invite it — I mean literally ask for it. But she was always putting herself in circumstances like that.”

That was in reference not to Goldschmidt’s molesting her, but to this:

But just three months after she began her job at the law firm, a man named Jeffrey L. Jacobsen kidnapped and brutally raped her. He was convicted and is now in prison.

Thanks to UO Matters for the link.

    Neil Goldschmidt deserves to be dragged behind a car on I-5 for what he did.

    And that other guy deserves the chair for what he did.

    Sorry, but when it comes to violence against women and rapists, I have no desire to see them alive.
