Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was arrested in a Rockland hotel overnight and charged with raping a 15-year-old girl, police said.
The 51-year-old former linebacker for the New York Giants was taken into custody by Ramapo police. He was being held in the town jail with an arraignment in Town Court scheduled for this afternoon.
He was charged with third-degree rape, a charge that involves having intercourse with a minor. The victim was reportedly beaten during the attack
Needless to say, Taylor is presumed innocent until proven guilty. However will Obama wait for Taylor’s conviction before appointing him to the cabinet?

Turd Flower on presidential civility, and leadership, Karl Rove, Wall Street Journal 
:If Mr. Obama is serious about his commitment to courtesy and respect, then he will need to demonstrate presidential leadership and rein in the verbal excesses of the leaders of his own party. He could start by having a conversation with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who condemned those with different views on health care as being “un-American.” He might also share a word with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who recently accused Republicans of being “anti-American” and wanting to continue to “make love to Wall Street” by pressing for changes in a bill regulating the financial industry.
You have to give away what you want to receive. If person, even a president, wants reppect, he has give respect. A major problem for Dm Won, a/k/a President of the United States Barack Obama, that he shows respect to one. Dim Won demands respect, but give none. No wonder he gets none. It ain’t rocket science, but Obama is no rocket scientist.
