    Gerry Adams, the leader of Sinn Fein is to run in County Louth at the next General Election. The sitting Sinn Fein TD, Arthur Morgan has announced that he is resigning from the position. Sinn Fein has been in serious electoral difficulty in Louth since it was revealed that Gerry Adams had helped his brother Liam Dominic Adams set up home in Dundalk, County Louth after Liam Dominic Adams had admitted to Gerry Adams that he (Liam) had raped his toddler daughter Aine from she was four years old.

    This move by Gerry Adams and Sinn Fein is a move of desperation as Sinn Fein's vote in the Republic has been eroding over recent years, leading Sinn Fein members such as Christy Burke has been resigning from Sinn Fein in significant numbers in recent years.

    The people of Louth are now to be asked to forget the fact that Gerry Adams knowingly helped a child molester to move into their community, Sinn Fein members in Dundalk are being asked to forget that their own children were exposed to a child rapist as Gerry Adams had rubber stamped that child rapist's position in their organisation in Dundalk.

    The fact that Sinn Fein are putting forward a high profile pensioner for the Louth position shows that they have no long term strategy for their electoral position in the Republic, they are hoping that they can hold the seat in Louth and after that the majority of the Sinn Fein leadership including Adams, Mc Guinness, O'Caolan, Ferris will be retiring. Its really about grumpy old men holding on to power before they are pushed aside as were the Stickey leadership before them.

    How would Americans react to this moral dilema?

    We already did!

    Here in Massachusetts, a man ran for Rep, and we learned that when he was a cop years ago, he covered up for his cop- friend, who was molesting teenaged girls during "arrests".

    He heard one girl screaming, did nothing, lied to her parents, then refused to submit a report on his buddy.
    His buddy went to prison.

    He says he heard nothing, saw nothing, and ergo did nothing.
    But the girl herself came out and told people the truth.
    "He protected his friend, instead of protecting me."

    He was a Tea-Party candidate, btw.
    And all his supporters still supported him...still do.
    They brought up Barney Frank, and Gerry Studds, Ted Kennedy....etc.

    Well, look what YOU did! sort of thing.

    Then, they started blaming the gir's parents. "What was she doing out?...you know..the old standby--"She DESERVED" it!

    He lost his bid for Rep, thank god, but he had the support of both Scott Brown and Mitt Romney....something to consider when they ask for your vote.

    Its not true to say Sinn Fein's vote has been eroding over the last few years. It has been fairly steady, and they've surged in popularity since the economic crisis. It is a real dilemma. There is no question that what Gerry Adams did was wrong, but on the other hand it was his brother.

    On Sinn Fein - I can't even consider them as a legitimate party, God knows what they'd do if they got into government.

      That looks like Im condoning Adams behaviour! Im absolutely not! All I meant was that can understand protecting his brother, but not to this extreme.
