Robert A. McKee, a long-serving Republican delegate from Western Maryland, announced his resignation yesterday after authorities, who say they are conducting a child pornography investigation, seized two computers, videotapes and printed materials from his Hagerstown home.You read the first two paragraphs and you KNOW where this is going. Yes, the appologetic statement for decades of deception:
First elected to the House of Delegates in 1994, McKee was chairman of the Western Maryland delegation and sponsored legislation to protect minors from sexual predators. McKee, 58, also resigned yesterday from his post as executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County, a child mentorship program where he has worked for 29 years.
"For me, this is deeply embarrassing," McKee said in a statement. "It reflects poorly on my service to the community."Seriously, deeply embarrassing? I should think that would be the least of your "deeplies," the biggest being "in deep shit." But, we're going to have a solution:
"In the meantime, I have entered treatment," McKee said, without providing specifics. "My primary focus is to get well and stay well. I know this can only happen with the support and prayers of my family and friends and the help of professionals."Gee, how about you get treatment BEFORE you get in trouble. Waiting until AFTER you're deeply involved in a scandal, like child porn, rings completely hollow. It's as vomitous as a drunk running to AA after he kills someone and pulling the "poor me" card to elicit empathy.
Maybe he can hang out with Jim West.
