Robert Bauman makes the news again

From the papers of The Boy Scouts of America on their employees, scoutmasters and volunteers who may have had sexually abused children and whose names were on a do not let back in the Boy scout list comes Robert Bauman.  Back in 1980 then U.S. Rep. Robert Bauman, R-Md., who was affiliated with the Boy Scouts on the Eastern Shore, was quietly put on the organization's blacklist after his arrest for picking up a 16-year-old male prostitute.  As I recall it came out at a time when he was running for re-election.  He had held office from 1973 until 1980 and was a husband and still is a father of four children.

I think he finally said he had bouts of alcoholism and homosexuality when he could no longer deny it . 

Above Robert Bauman in 1980.

Today Robert E. “Bob” Bauman is Legal Counsel to The Sovereign Society, and serves on its board of directors and was the founding editor of The Sovereign Society Offshore A-Letter.

He wrote the book; "The Gentleman from Maryland: The Conscience of a Gay Conservative "

and he had an interview about a year ago with the Washington Blade

Today he would probably win re-election as it is a much more safe environment for homosexuals plus as I recall he was conservative
