A question of Integrity.
Rapist- man who commits rape.
What in the name of good judgement made Labour TD Kathleen Lynch and former Lord Mayor of Cork, John Murray write letters of support for convicted rapist Trevor Casey .
I see this morning Kathleen Lynch has apologised for her letter, claiming she did not personally know Casey, but that when his mother approached her asking her for the letter, she felt obliged to provide it.
If she did not know the man in question she had no right supporting him in a case of rape and sexual assault of two minors. For that matter his mother ought to be hanging her head in same too.
What Trevor Casey did was abhorrent. He raped and sexually assaulted two young girls, threatened them and then put them through the additional horror of a court case. People of influence have no business discussing his 'stock' or pleading to the courts for leniency.
I'm glad Lynch apologised for her actions. She has proven at least she understands the word integrity. I wonder will John Murray do the same.
