Judicial Watch Founder/Clinton Nemesis Larry Klayman Might Have Touched His Children In Their Swimsuit Areas

Stranger dangerWell this is gross and awful. Larry Klayman, who made his bones with Judicial Watch, which was constantly suing Bill Clinton every time he sneezed (with his penis), and who most recently has been writing for WND and representing totally rad heavy metal children’s entertainer Bradlee Dean, may have sexually abused his own children! Ha? Ha? Hilarious?

Specifically, Larry Klayman was appealing a Cuyahoga County court order regarding visitation and his wife’s attorney’s fees, and the court found that previous magistrates had not been in error when they took away his visitation rights and awarded his ex-wife a shitload of money.

From BradleeDeanInfo, via CityPages:

From Appeals Court Judge Mary Boyle, July 26,2012 [PDF]

{¶25} The issues raised by Klayman involve credibility assessments made by the magistrate. Klayman challenges these findings. The magistrate heard evidence from the children’s pediatrician who reported allegations of sexual abuse to children services, and from a social worker at children services who found that sexual abuse was “indicated.” Although the social worker’s finding was later changed to “unsubstantiated” when Klayman appealed, the magistrate explained that the supervisor who changed the social worker’s finding did not testify. The magistrate pointed out that he was obligated to make his own independent analysis based upon the parties and the evidence before him. In doing so, the magistrate found on more than one occasion [Klayman] act[ed] in a grossly inappropriate manner with the children. His conduct may not have been sexual in the sense that he intended to or did derive any sexual pleasure from it or that he intended his children would. That, however, does not mean that he did not engage in those acts or that his behavior was proper.

{¶26} The magistrate further found it significant that although Klayman denied any allegations of sexual abuse, he never denied that he did not engage in inappropriate behavior with the children. The magistrate further found it notable that Klayman, “for all his breast beating about his innocence * * * [he] scrupulously avoided being questioned by anyone from [children services] or from the Sheriff’s Department about the allegations,” and that he refused to answer any questions, repeatedly invoking his Fifth Amendment rights, about whether he inappropriately touched the children. “Even more disturbing” to the magistrate was the fact that Klayman would not even answer the simple question regarding what he thought inappropriate touching was. The magistrate stated that he could draw an adverse inference from Klayman’s decision not to testify to these matters because it was a civil proceeding, not criminal.

This does not mean Larry Klayman is guilty. (Because we are liberals.) There are lots of reasons a man might have touched his children, on the real, and we are not privy to the testimony. Also, if anyone is going to constantly invoke the Fifth Amendment when he has the opportunity to clear his name, it is Larry Klayman, because he is a crazy person. It just means fucking ew.

      If that is the Cuyahoga River, then I am okay with it catching on fire again.

      Just the part under him of course.

    WHAT
    THE
    ACTUAL
    FUCK?

    • Terry

      An innocent man would have been denying the inappropriate behavior from the rooftops.

    • Doktor Zoom

      Again, not necessarily evidence of guilt; he refused to "even answer the simple question regarding what he thought inappropriate touching was."That's not necessarily the strategy of a guilty man so much as the strategy of a paranoid (and lawyer) who doesn't want to provide anything that could potentially be used against him because he's certain that the opposition is out to get him.

      None of this makes him any less of an asshole in his choice of legal clients, of course.

  • Mojopo

    Would it not be in his best interests to clear his name, so his poor kids don't have to hear about this from schoolmates who have Google? Oh, this makes my heart hurt. Those poor kids, either way.

    • Antispandex

      I know. But, seriously, when did the conservatives ever care about children? I mean, once they are already born.

  • SorosBot

    I'm trying to think of a joke here, but nope, can't come up with one about this. Ugh fuck people.

    Doesn't that new papyrus they discovered say that Jesus was OK with this? Because I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere… maybe on the Judicial Watch website.

    • Antispandex

      If it's true (and, who are we kidding here), I'm thinking a mill stone around the neck is just about right.

  • mavenmaven

    Robert Novak's calling Klayman "a prickly troublemaker" was more on target than he knew…

  • Callyson

    Can't snark when it comes to child abuse. I just hope the ex-wife gets herself and the kids a good therapist with that shitload of money, and that they find a way to heal somehow…

    • Monsieur_Grumpe

      Yeah. My humor just turns to hate.

    • Terry

      …and a restraining order in case he doesn't go to jail.

  • CalvinsChoice

    Somehow, this is all Bill Clinton's fault.

    • Serolf_Divad

      Well, he can always pull a Newt Gingrich and say that it was love of country that made him molest his own kids.

    • HogeyeGrex

      Anything to do with a penis is Clinton's fault, silly liberal.

    • Geminisunmars

      I would have thought Obama's.

    • Antispandex

      Well, he was the first one in history to engage in sex with someone other that his wife, hence, leading us down the path to depravity.

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    Now, show us on the Republican elephant where the bad man touched you, son

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    There are lots of reasons a man might have touched his children, on the real, and we are not privy to the testimony.

    Yes. For example, there might have been a black widow spider on his penis. Or perhaps a vampire. Or a black vampire. Or a spider widow. Don't Praying Mantis eat their men?

      Every time I feel guilty for (my mother's sake) that I've completely cut off all contact with my own sexually abusive father, seeing your reaction to this kind of story makes me feel a whole lot better about my decision. Thanks.

  • PsycWench

    This must have been some pretty inappropriate touching if the children's pediatrician is the person who reported it.

    • Steverino247

      Yup. That's my professional experience with such matters. Although, some doctors report everything to cover their asses, which leads to real confusion elsewhere. There's no more shitty cases than child custody cases, my friends.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

      Yeah I can't imagine what it would take to set off that alarm short of bleeding orifices. Or maybe she got a look at Dad's whole vibe and thought "uh-oh." Kind of a no-brainer when you think about it.

      Bill Donohue is currently taking the gas pipe as Obama is ahead with Catholics, including white Catholics. Might make him wonder who his Catholic League represents. No, that would require self awareness.

        Timmy D & Billy D need to admit their apostasy & leave the Church & convert to the Redneck Biblebleaters that they have always been.

  • DaveJ

    The more conservative a person is, the more rank and horrific will be the thing that eventually brings them down. Pretty much a guaranteed fact of life at this point.

    Also "and that he refused to answer any questions, repeatedly invoking his Fifth Amendment rights, about whether he inappropriately touched the children" is deeply disturbing. If the answer is "no," then why not say "no." If the answer is ANYTHING other than "no," then let's fire up the wood chipper.

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

    I feel bad for his kids. But people obsessed with other peoples' sex lives send up a red flag right away. Now about that Ken Starr fellow…

  • Antispandex

    Of course it's only bad when lierals do it, hippies! You remember when a certain portly conservative talker was caught with illegal prescrition meds, and then was later busted on a return trip from an apparent sex-cation? That is perfectly acceptable behavior because he wasn't an ELECTED official. See, where you screwed up there? Morals are for elected persons, and when they are caught, you need to check for their party affiliation. (R) = Unsubstantiated rumor. (D) = Impeachable offense. It couldn't be more logical.
