[COMMENTARY] Ex-Maine Candidate for Gov Released on $50K Bail After Child Porn Arrest

[TW: mentions of pornography, child pornography, and sexual abuse]

Eliot Cutler, a former gubernatorial candidate in Maine, was released from jail on Saturday after his arrest on charges of possession of child pornography. Bail was set at $50,000, which is nbd because rich pervy men almost always know someone even more rich and pervy than they are. Cutler is 75, so he’s not just a pedophile, he’s an old pedophile, which makes it seem even grosser somehow. But hey, moneyed white privilege makes it fine for him to go home to his wife (and ma’am, what are you still doing with this man in your golden years? Unless you’re also into it, in which case, maybe there needs to be an assisted living prison for older people who commit heinous crimes in the twilight of their lives).

Cutler served as an aide to the late Democratic U.S. Sen. Edmund Muskie and later as former Democratic President Jimmy Carter’s top adviser for environmental and energy issues and went on to serve as an environmental attorney and helped found a law firm in Washington, D.C., so it’s easy for people to assume he’s a Democrat. But Cutler was a registered Independent, which some think means “Secret Democrat,” but it really isn’t.

Now, maybe running as an Independent, as Cutler did, isn’t quite the blemish on politics as if he was more closely tied to one party, but it’s still a commentary on how white men can get away with things for years before anyone catches on. Cutler is out on bail but not out of trouble; he was charged with four counts of possession of sexually explicit material of a child under 12, and each carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. But since he doesn’t have a hard R next to his name, some people think it’s fine to play fast and loose with the facts.
