Once again, a Democrat politician is involved in a child sex abuse scandal. This time it is the turn of Robert Jacob, former mayor of Sebastopol, California, who was arrested over the weekend, accused of repeated sexual assaults and possession of child pornography.
Robert Jacob, 44, is a well-known cannabis entrepreneur in the state of California. His arrest triggered a new sex scandal involving Democratic politicians for alleged assaults in the city between Dec. 2019 and March 2021, when he was no longer in office as mayor, Fox News reported.
Jacob was elected as mayor by the Democratic party in 2013 and served a full term in office. He was recognized for being the first U.S. Mayor to have worked in the medical cannabis industry, owning two cannabis dispensaries at the time of his election in December 2013.
The entrepreneurial politician, not only dabbles in cannabis production, but also self-titles himself as an ‘inspirational leader’ on LinkedIn and promotes himself as a principal of Robert Jacob Executive Consulting, a firm dedicated to advising cannabis startups.
Sebastopol Police Chief Kevin Kilgore reported that on March 30, 2021, police received information of alleged sexual assaults committed by former Mayor Robert Jacob in the city between Dec. 2019 and March 2021.
The charges include sex with a minor and transporting a minor to have sex with them, distributing child pornography, and soliciting a minor for lewd purposes.
“Right now, that investigation is ongoing to determine the number of victims,” Kilgore said, the Press Democrat reported.
Jacob was arrested about 7 a.m. Saturday. Police said they contacted Jacob in the 7400 block of Woodland Avenue and took him into custody on an arrest warrant outlining several felony sexual assault crimes against a minor.
The former mayor is now being held without bail at the Sonoma County Main Adult Detention Center on suspicion of five felonies and one misdemeanor. He has also received community-wide disapproval, including current Mayor Una Glass, who said the charges against Jacob were “very disappointing.”
Sex and child molestation scandals abound among Democratic politicians.
Currently, Democrat Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, is embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal after several women denounced him for making sexual advances and displaying inappropriate behavior.
Former President Bill Clinton is another major Democratic figure who was accused of sexually abusing women and participating in collusion with the late billionaire pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, in trips to his private island where they held sex parties that included underage girls.
Other lesser Democratic supporters have also been implicated in sex scandals, such as the case of Harold “HL” Moody Jr, former Communications Director for the Arkansas Democratic Party, who was arrested for possession and distribution of child pornography in 2018.
In all cases, the role of the hegemonic media has been pitiful. Trying to hide the news or even defending the accused without solid arguments. Paradoxically, these are the same media that show banners highlighting gender ideology and the defense of women’s rights.
