It’s official “America’s Dad” has been indicted. Another fallen man will forever be known as “America’s Pervert.” Do you need me to name him? What a pathetic creep. He’s lucky not one of the women he drugged with Qualudes, wine, and promises of stardom is one of my family. Shame on the “men” who know these accusers.
