Pennsylvania Legislative Furry Arrested For Trying To Sex Young Boy

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

A pervert in Pennsylvania has been arrested. HOORAY FOR FRIDAY NEWS! Alan David Berlin, 40, and longtime staffer in the Pennsylvania state Senate, was charged Thursday for being a terrible panda furry who loved teenage boys so, so much. But is he only a panda furry?

No! That’s why we have a jump in this post!

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pennsylvania attorney general says a legislative staffer wanted to dress up in a panda costume and have sex with a 15-year-old boy.

Attorney General Tom Corbett says 40-year-old Alan David Berlin, of Carlisle, was charged Thursday with attempted sexual exploitation of children and related crimes.

A Corbett spokesman says the boy’s parents alerted authorities after finding graphic messages on his computer. He says agents found wolf- and cat-type costumes in Berlin’s home.

C’mon now.

    First duck fucking and now this. It’s like Animal Planet gone terribly terribly wrong.

  • Pilate

    [re=327688]user-of-owls[/re]: win, for not referencing South Park.

  • gjdodger

    “Hey, Kid…how would you like to be, ‘The Boy who Tried Wolf’?”

  • Jukesgrrl

    You promised a panda furry and the agents only delivered “wolf- and cat-type costumes.” Damn you, Newell! And damn Pennsylvania. Wanting to dress up as a panda and DOING IT are two different things!!1!!11 (Oh well. Thanks for the photo and for properly hyphenating the costumes.) Pandas are hawtt.

  • Makeithurt

    Damn parents. Fucking up everything for everyone. What’s wrong with a little “pandering”. As Auntie Mame says, “When you’re from Pittsburgh you have to do something.” Go Steelers! Go Pens! Woo-hoo!

  • user-of-owls

    [re=327698]thejesusandmarycheney[/re]: Priceless! Ganaste!

  • Joehoya

    But in panda years, the boy was 35.

  • the problem child

    Think there’s a fifteen year old boy on wonkette right now crying for his lost panda love?

  • S.Luggo

    You left out the very bestest part:
    “A spokesman for Sen. Jane Orie [R-40] says Berlin has been suspended. Berlin worked in the Senate [on the Republican side of the aisle] about a decade, including the last several years with the Allegheny County Republican.”

    Orie is a former prosecutor, who ran a law and order campaign.

    What can I say? Family values!

  • mollymcguire

    [re=327698]thejesusandmarycheney[/re]: win.

  • kthxbai…also

    Wait, why did Liddy want to dress like a panda?

  • T. Way

    [re=327706]gjdodger[/re]: Ha ha.

  • user-of-owls

    [re=327713]S.Luggo[/re]: What can I say? Family values!

    Exactly. The Ursidae family.

  • mollymcguire

    Apparently Mr. Berlin was caught on tape.

  • dougbob

    maybe he and diaperman can put together a revue and go on the road to promote family values & such…

  • S.Luggo

    [re=327719]user-of-owls[/re]: Point.

  • Colander

    A boy never forgets his first pandjob.

    You all know that.

  • Bill_TX

    So, IS he a Republican? I’m assuming he is.

  • Mr Blifil

    Where is the controversy?

  • Tommmcatt

    Can you imagine being the 15 -year-old in all this? He had to mentally process:

    1. That the person who was coming on to him was 40, and wanted to buttseccks him.
    2. All of the bizarre images of animals “yowfing”, or whatever the fuck they call it, that the dude had to have sent him
    3. That the 40-year-old who sent him all the furry porn wanted to fuck him buttally while dressed up as a panda.

    Try fitting that in between algebra class and games of Magic the Gathering. I’d put down payments on the shrink NOW if I were his parents.

  • nugsybogues

    don’t hate. without republican furries, gaybashers, pedophiles, religious zealots, snowbillies, extortionists, bitters, fatties, pillheads, gangstars (im looking at you steele), and all around delusional wingnuts, what would we discuss? like…policy or some shit? i just got the chills thinking about it. or maybe thats the dry ice fusing to my nipples (im trying this bipartisan thing out).

  • S.Luggo

    Mr. Berlin is going to learn the meaning of sexytime when he tries to sleep in his panda suit after ‘lights out’.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    A 40-year-old furry is just intensely sad.

    Of course, if you’re still 38, then it’s totally cool.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=327739]Bill_TX[/re]: Well, DUH

  • Bearbloke

    [re=327814]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: Happy 38.9999999th Birthday!

  • President Beeblebrox

    Pedo Bear approves.


  • Bearbloke

    [re=327843]Bearbloke[/re]: A picture!… and he looks just like your mental image of a Child-yiffing ReThuglitard….

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Who here hasn’t wanted to dress up as a Panda and have sex with a 15-year old boy?

  • american mutt

    wait, i assumed this was some nonsense wonkette headline with little truth to it…

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    @Lionel Hutz Esq.: More to the point, who here hasn’t dressed up as a panda and had sex with a 15-year-old boy, amiright, guys? Guys?

  • Numbat Dundee

    [re=327681]ManchuCandidate[/re]: But the sad is good because he’ll cry, his mascara will run and he’ll have panda eyes just in time for the prison sex.

  • amabokarab

    Sully was right – Repugs are kinkier! Trust me its hard to smuggle panda suits into hooskow, poor guy. Still owe a buttload of smokes.

  • the problem child

    Ok, the Penn. AG has a Child Predator Unit. I thought pandas were vegetarians?

  • The Huffington Pogue
  • PsycGirl

    I had planned to dress up as a boy and have sex with a 15-year-old panda, but apparently there are a whole ‘nother set of laws forbidding that too.

  • Jefferson

    “Who lives in the east ‘neath the willow tree?.

    Don’t say that.
    Don’t touch there.

  • DustBowlBlues

    [re=327713]S.Luggo[/re]: You’ve answered the only question that mattered. Yes, another freako Republican.

  • DustBowlBlues

    Ted Bundy worked for the Republicans in Olympia, btw.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    [re=327856]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: Well, I did have Alberto Gonzalez issue a legal opinion authored by Jay Bybee that says that it was perfectly legal. I see no reason for anyone to revisit my actions.

  • Sabre_Justice

    It’s rather terrifying that I’m not surprised in the least.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    It’s guys like this that give Furrys a bad reputation. You sir are an embarrassment to your suit!

  • sezme

    I always thought that pandas had a hard time getting in the mood. Or perhaps they’re just usually in the mood for 15 year old humans.

  • Max’s Dad

    Who knew KISS were Republicans?

  • PsycGirl

    Honestly can you imagine the parents’ reaction when they checked out the incriminating evidence on the computer? I would guess that while one dreads seeing pedophiles come on to your 15-year-old son, you know it happens. But in a panda suit? A panda suit? Nothing in the Parent Primer could prepare you for such a thing.

  • ThePerfesser

    HELLO YOUNG MAN! My name is Hsing-Hsing. Would you like to see my thing-thing?

    Perhaps you’d like a nice Chinese tea bag. Sounds like something that might interest you, my friend?

    This all sounds like a very, very bad Stewie Griffin fantasy. Rupert? Rupert?

  • FormerDCite

    No one could understand why Mr. Berlin was such an enthusiastic volunteer to play Santa at every holiday party. “Hello little boy, how would you like to sit on my lap and talk about the first thing that pops up?”

  • Deepthroat

    Dude, i always thought that was a butch when i’d see it around the cafe!

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    One good panda pun!?! (thanks, Colander) What kind of pandamonium is this? Berlin wasn’t arrested for pandaring? His arrest doesn’t mark the start of a pedophile pandamic? He isn’t looking at pandatory jail time? He wasn’t singing, “it’s a marvelous night for a pandance?” I am bamboozled by this…

  • Bruno

    [re=327739]Bill_TX[/re]: I’m not sure there is even a point of mentioning if people like this are Republicans. It goes without saying that they are. If they are Democrats, that counds as real news, because of the shock involved.

  • S.Luggo


    1. Pa. Republican senate staffer Pandaman comes, heh heh heh ,,, a-heh, from Carlisle, county seat, so to speak, of Pa.’s Cumberland County, where former (until his arrest for videography with intent to butthole) Republican County Commissioner Bruce Barclay worked, again, so to speak.
    2. Rick Santorum went to law school in Carlisle.
    3. Mere chance or pure circumstance?
    Ex-PA Official Taped Sex With Hundreds of Male Prostitutes

  • oldguy

    How is Furry-Fox News covering this?

    I personally find the cat-type costume difficult. Think Halle Berry and then substitute Alan David Berlin:

    And check the 4th paragraph – Berlin proposed sex in the backyard, in a shed in the backyard, and at a motel with another guy while Berlin took pictures.

    But no sex with Sheeple?

  • ThePerfesser


    So then I guess it’s official: Panda Boy Berlin and County Commissioner Bruce Barclay put the cum in Cumberland County!

  • Aloysius

    No joke, a couple I knew in college used to engage in public cutesy-talk on a regular basis. He called her “Panda,” and that was her cue to say (in a cuddle-wy, presumably panda-esque voice), “I’m not fat; I’m fluffy.” So when the story mentioned a panda suit, I already had visions of a chunky alt-chick from the early 90s. Fast forward to the present: those pictures of Pedopandaman have struck closer to home than I would like. I keep hearing him say, “I’m not fat; I’m fluffy.” Until a few minutes ago, I thought it amusing that I fucked a fat girl-furry in college. I now see the need to seriously rethink my life to this point.

    [re=327814]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: A furry is just intensely sad.

    There, fixed it.

    And so it goes. Maybe it’s the water.

    On Tuesday, Ronald P. Frank was a deeply involved member of the Wormleysburg-area community: borough councilman, code enforcement officer for Lemoyne, commissioner of the West Shore Bureau of Fire and a former crossing guard at Lemoyne Middle School.

    On Wednesday, he was in Cumberland County [PA] Prison in lieu of $250,000 bail, accused of sexual misconduct with three teen boys.
