Is this officially a "trend" now?

Within months of three administration officials being arrested on charges relating to child pornography, indecent exposure to minors, and related disturbing charges, a Texas GOP operative has been convicted of the same.

A political consultant whose company was behind a television ad accusing the Clinton-Gore administration of giving away nuclear technology was convicted of child molestation charges.

A jury deliberated almost two days before convicting Carey Lee Cramer, 44, of aggravated sexual assault of a child, two counts of indecency with a child by contact and one count of indecency with a child by exposure. He was cleared of nine other charges Tuesday.

At least he wasn't with Homeland Security or the Department of Defense.
