DEAD RAPIST would have been the better headline.

joel.... this is not sammy the boy lover adams

No, John, he wasn't. He was much worse. He raped a 13-year-old girl who had placed her faith in him...his babysitter. A young girl who considered Goldschmidt to be "a mentor" and "a visionary." He continued to rape her for almost two decades, well past the time it was a crime of child sexual abuse.

We've heard the term "hush money" a lot lately, applied to another man with political juice. Goldschmidt paid hush money to his young victim, 21 years his junior. He paid $350,000 to his victim to buy her silence.

Goldschmidt's victim died at 49, after years of drug and alcohol abuse and mental illness. Her problems were the result of an imbalance of power and exploitation at a time in a child's development when she was particularly vulnerable.

Joel .. Don’t leave out the young girls mother worked for the scumbag in his office!!!! Don’t forget he used cops to deliver the cash envelopes! Don’t forget The Oregonian calling it an unfortunate affair!

There are relatives of the victim who are sure her mother was aware of the ongoing abuse. Maybe not from the start, but while she was still too young to consent legally. The basement of the victim's home was the scene of some sexual meetings.

Also of interest in the whole sordid affair is the role it played in Goldschmidt suddenly dropping out of the 1990 governor's race. Was Goldschmidt's wife at the time aware of the relationship and what role might it have played in their divorce?

There's much, much more to this story, but you won't find it in the O.

Good Riddance to bad rubbish.
