So he was attacked by acid… sounds like karma.
From Conservative Tribune: Under the Obama administration, Democrats and progressives are the untouchables. Scandals and crimes that would have buried any political figure not too long ago still have the same effect on Republicans and conservatives while Democrats, more often than not, get a free pass.
Donny Ray Williams is a former Democrat congressional aide who, last year, pleaded guilty to raping two women. According to reports, in 2010, Williams subdued his first victim, an intern, by drugging her with Ambien before assaulting her. Later that year, he claimed his second victim, who was too drunk to give proper consent.
However, due to an unrelated incident, Williams will not be serving any jail time.
In 2013, as Williams was walking down Washington Street, a man attacked him by pouring acid on his face and body. Williams suffered disfiguring and debilitating injuries from the attack. His lawyer used those injuries to successfully maneuver the judge into giving him five years probation in lieu of prison time.
Judge Robert Morin, who was reported to be somewhat reluctant to handing down this soft sentence, justified it by saying that Williams “was a victim of an independent crime and has serious medical issues.” (H/T UFP News)
After the attack, Williams was left blind in one eye with terrible second- and third-degree burns that put him in the hospital for two months. He has undergone nearly 20 surgeries with more scheduled. Currently, he has a large protuberance on the top of his head where doctors have implanted a rod to stretch the skin and aid in the healing process.
Williams believes that the attack may have been perpetrated by the jealous boyfriend of a woman he was seeing at the time.
As far as the two rapes go, Williams, who had denied the allegations in the past, pleaded guilty claiming that he needed to focus on his health after the attack and not a trial.
“How easy it is for men to use power to abuse,” Williams said in court. “Rape is cowardly, shameful and downright evil. I promise, I will protect a woman’s right to her own body.”
Williams, who says he is now $1 million in debt and jobless, began his career at the Capitol in 1999. He spent years working with politicians such as Sen. Mary Landrieu and Sen. Herb Kohl.
He also worked in the Obama administration as the general deputy assistant secretary for congressional and intergovernmental relations in the Department of Housing and Urban Development between April 2009 and October 2010, and served as a staff director for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee.
While the attack on Williams is tragic and the injuries he suffered horrible, it in no way excuses the barbaric acts he performed on his innocent victims. In much the same way his attacker took Williams’ eyesight, Williams took something from those two woman that they can never get back.
This is just another case of political correctness winning out over common sense. As a black man with connections to the Democrats and the Obama administration, it’s really not that surprising that Williams got off so easy.
