CBS News: Bill Maher defending sex between adults and minors
In wake of Milo downfall, video surfaces of Bill Maher defending sex between adults and minors
Bill Maher has been taking credit for Milo Yiannopoulos’ fall from grace, but his past may be coming back to haunt him.
But that same attention may now be coming to Maher, as a 19-year-old clip from his former ABC talk show, “Politically Incorrect,” resurfaced earlier this week. The clip features Maher defending Mary Kay Letourneau, a teacher convicted of having sex with a 12-year-old male student. Letourneau and the student went on to have two children together while he was a teenager.
“She is in jail because she is in love. That’s how I view it,” Maher said in the clip. “Basically, they’re having a family and they’re keeping the mother in jail because she won’t conform to what society feels should be the perfect American family.”
