This doesn't bode well for Mormons, and it's probably a good thing for the republicans that McCain is in theÂ presumptive role, and not Romney.
Eldorado, Texas (AP) The investigation began with a call alleging physical abuse of a 16-year-old girl living there, Meisner said.
On Friday afternoon, the Department of Public Safety officials began executing a search warrant.
The warrant seeks records dealing with the birth of children to a 16-year-old and any records listing a marriage between a 50-year-old man and the girl, according to the San Angelo Standard-Times, which cited court records released late Friday in Tom Green County. Prosecutors in Tom Green, a larger county north of Eldorado, were handling the case.
It soon turned into a media circus with two buses containingÂ a total of 52 girls, ages 6 months to 17 years, being bused away on Friday to be interviewed by authorities, but only 18 were immediately taken into state custody, said Texas Child Protective Services spokeswoman Marleigh Meisner.
And to think, Clinton and Reno burned down the Branch Davidians with far less egregious charges.
I wonder what will happen to all of those girls now?
