Provided here is a list of high profile Republican pedophiles. While sexual abusers can be found on all political sides, it is clear there’s a rampant problem within the Right-wing that hasn’t been addressed. This is evident in the fact that most of these cases happened within the last 20-years, and many others within the last few years.

We would like to remind our viewers that this list is incomplete as many offenders have managed to expunge their criminal records and erase their images from the Internet. As many Republicans, including some provided in this list, commonly engage in accusing others of Satanism and pedophilia, we thought we’d leave you with this quote: “Accuse your enemy of what you are doing, as you are doing it to create confusion.”
