Senator Norris, aspiring President of Ireland, has a few problems;
The Sunday Independent today publishes a letter which was written 14 years ago by Senator David Norris to the judges of the High Court of Israel in which he pleaded for “mercy” for his then 45-year-old former lover who had been convicted of the statutory rape of a 15-year-old male.
The letter, which was give to the Sunday Independent by Senator Norris on Friday, is written on Seanad Eireann notepaper.
In the letter, Senator Norris, then 53, stated he himself had been mentioned at the time, 1997, as a possible candidate to be President of Ireland
To the chagrin of the left, this means Ireland will not be getting it’s First openly gay President. Seeking clemency for male rapists is not the conventional route to the Presidency.
