Maybe the tape is subject to the Open Records law and maybe — maybe — it was absolutely essential that reporters and lawmakers view it, even though there's no dispute about what happened. That doesn't lessen the creepiness dimension of adults watching teenagers having sex or for McDade's failure to be more discreet in releasing the tape instead of putting it in circulation like an R. Kelly sex tape. Why is it necessary for anyone in the general public to have that tape?
Sums it up pretty neatly, no?
Big tip of the hat to Jason.
