A conservative New York congressman who’s stuck his foot in his mouth before has begun to bemoan the coverage of the late Michael Jackson, labeling him a “pervert,” a “child molester” and a “pedophile” and saying that society is “glorifying” a “low-life” while ignoring the efforts of teachers, police officers, firefighters, veterans and volunteers.

The Associated Press notes wryly, “Jackson was acquitted of molesting a boy.”
