Republican Bruce Barclay, County Commissioner in Cumberland County, resigned amidst a sex scandal after being charged with rape. The elected official whose website has pictures of him with Karl Rove, Lynn Swann and Jack Kemp got caught having his pictures taken in even creepier circumstances: with male prostitutes. It seems the Commish had a thing for installing video cameras all through his home and taping his weekly encounters with male "escorts."
Ironically the video may exonerate him from the rape charge but this item from his website may be far more disturbing:
"Bruce Barclay resides in Monroe Township. He has hosted 17 international high school exchange students in the past ten years."
That information is on his personal biography page and if he had this extensive video recording system installed and operating while hosting seventeen underage teens in his home the charges against him could be severe. His biography also lists him as serving on the Children's Services Advisory Board and, ironically, the Victims/Witness Policy Board. His listed profession is that of an electrical contractor so I assume he installed his video taping system himself.
Someone needs to investigate and check with those seventeen teenagers and discover if anything criminal happened.
Update: Now the man who falsely accused Barclay of rape has been arrested for making false statements. William McCurdy, 20, of Berks County, was arrested for his false accusation and the Commissioner absolved of the charges due to the extensive video recording system the Commissioner installed in his home which revealed the sex was consensual. It was the allegation of rape which led police to search Barclay's home and discover he recorded about 100 sexual encounters. The question remains if he also invaded the privacy of the exchange students he hosted.
