"A Colorado Springs man who narrates the Bible in Spanish on CDs and works in the Spanish broadcasting department of Focus on the Family appeared in court Monday in Golden on two felony counts of using the Internet to lure a 15-year-old girl for sex, The Denver Post reports.
"Juan Alberto Ovalle, 42, was arrested Friday when he drove to Lakewood to meet the girl — who turned out to be an undercover officer — after discussing various sexual acts he wanted to perform with her, the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office said."
This is not the first time that someone from Focus on the Family was spotlighted for major (alleged) hypocrisy.
In 2006, Media Matters reported:
"While both Dobson and Minnery deny working with Abramoff, email exchanges between Abramoff and associates Ralph Reed and Michael Scanlon appear to contradict Dobson and Minnery's claim that Focus on the Family's activities in opposition to the expansion of a Louisiana casino had nothing to do with requests from Abramoff or Reed."
Mr. Abramoff received a four-year prison sentence for his role in a corruption scandal that involved lobbyists, federal government officials, and aides.
An old college friend of Abramoff, Mr. Reed was director of the "Christian Coalition" in the '80s and '90s. He appeared to be a voice on all things moral -- until he allegedly helped Mr. Abramoff promote the interests of one gambling-casino client by mobilizing Christian coalition members to protest against a different gambling-casino owner.
After the Abramoff scandal hit headlines, Mr. Reed lost a bid for lieutenant Governor of Georgia.
