I hate to say I told you so... well, not really

And should I add that it's not all that shocking as to who he actively supported in the last three presidential elections (3d and 9th paragraph down)? But hey... he's a good Catholic boy. No excommunication needed.

What a charming little article from Here's some of it; (Emphasis mine) Catholic Democrat arrested on prostitution charges
Eric McFadden, formerly of Ohio's Faith-Based Initiatives office, was arrested on prostitution charges. An active Democrat, he called himself the "guru" of prostitution in Ohio.

The former director of the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives for the governor of Ohio was arrested Wednesday for his involvement in an online prostitution ring. Eric McFadden, who has also formerly served as the president of the organization
Catholics for Faithful Citizenship and spokesperson for Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, will face seven prostitution-related charges tomorrow in court.

Eric McFadden, 46, the former head of the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives for Governor of Ohio, Ted Strickland, was arrested this morning (January 14) and faces two counts of promoting prostitution, two counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor, two counts of pandering obscenity involving a nude minor and one count of compelling prostitution, Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien told the Springfield News-Sun.

McFadden’s faith outreach has not been limited to the Ohio governor’s office. In 2004, McFadden worked for Catholics for Kerry and in 2005, served as the president for the organization, Catholics for Faithful Citizenship. In 2006, he was a spokesperson for Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, and more recently, he was Hillary Clinton’s lead Catholic outreach organizer as the State Faith & Values Outreach Director during the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

According to NBC 4 in Columbus, Ohio, detectives suspect McFadden was involved in a “hooker-review” site that led to the creation of a Brewery District brothel.

Police also believe that McFadden is a man they have been tracking who posts under the name “Toby.” Authorities have been searching for him over the past two months after busting a prostitution ring on Craigslist.

McFadden used complex encoded postings on Craiglist that would look like useless or corrupted data, in which he would embed the information of the woman available, the type of sex interaction she would be willing to perform and the place to meet her. Paradoxically, McFadden's code name in his transactions was "mcfaddencatholic."

Police also note that on McFadden’s online posts, he claimed to be the “guru” of prostitution in Columbus, Ohio. He wrote reviews on prostitution services as well as advice on how not to get caught, reports NBC 4. (D'oh!!)

Upon hearing of the arrest, the organization, Catholic Democrats reacted saying that it is “sad news” that a “committed Catholic Democrat” has been arrested under such accusations.

McFadden who has been a supporter of John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama described his Catholic outreach in 2007 on the Buckeye State Blog as giving “a voice to Catholics so they can stand up and say, ‘I am a Catholic Democrat, and I’m proud and these are the principles that I believe in.’ (That's the best description of the Smoke of Satan I can think of... whatever YOU believe is the Truth. Jesus, shmeesus.)
I lay the responsibility for guys like this directly at the feet of the majority of our fearless shepherds who've sat on their collective brains and either done nothing or gave a wink and a nod to individuals like McFadden.

I'm pretty sure anyone who would be a pimp doesn't really understand what the word "Catholic" means. Let's hope he has a conversion in prison before somebody kills him or worse. In the meantime, get that scum off the streets and away from women and children, stat.

This and the fact that they're always changing things, it's no wonder nobody takes Catholic bishops seriously.

It's evident that he lives his beliefs, which clearly include the notion that pelvic issues are more important than what God wants for us.
