It looks like Amazon.com has pulled one its stocking stuffers after receiving thousands of angry comments and threats of boycotts. Until last Wednesday, Amazon had been selling the self-published e-book The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct by Philip R. Greaves II.

“Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.”—Amazon.com

Greaves, the Mr. Lonelyhearts of anxious childmolesters, offers guidelines for pedophiles “to make pedophile situations safer” for the children involved with them.

“I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter [sic] sentences should they ever be caught.”—Philip R. Greaves II

Greaves said that he published the book to tackle the media’s unfair portrayals of pedophiles. According to Greaves, “True pedophiles love children and would never hurt them.”

The 47-year-old claims he has not had sexual contact with a child as an adult, but did as a teenager. Greaves added that an older female had first introduced him to oral sex when he was seven years old.

Although Amazon defended selling the book, company spokesman Drew Herdener refused to address the controversy or respond to questions about company’s vetting process for its digital publications.

Based on the illegal standard used to count Alaska’s write-in votes, it looks like Lisa Murkowski and the state’s GOP establishment have taken pointers from the Democrat playbook and are about to steal the election for the U.S. Senate. (See the 2008 Minnesota Senate Race starring George Soros and Stewart Smiley as Democrat candidate Al Frankin)

Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai and Lt. Governor Craig Campbell have instructed election officials to accept misspelled votes for Murkowski even though the law states that misspelled votes “may not be counted.” Fenumiai and Campbell have ordered election officials to determine the “voter intent” for each ballot cast. (See the Bush-Gore 2000 presidential race and Florida’s hanging, dimpled, and pregnant chads.)

According to a preliminary injunction filed by Thomas Van Flein, Joe Miller’s attorney, some Alaskan voters had mentioned on radio stations, in blogs, and in newspaper stories that they intended to write in variantions of Murkowski’s name as a protest vote because Murkowski failed to keep her word and abide by the electorate’s decision in the Republican primiary.

However, the counting boards have awarded Murkowski protest votes that included names such as “Mercowshit” and “Fuckowski” on the grounds that two syllables of her last name were phonetically correct.

What’s more, allegations of vote-padding and ballot-stuffing abound:

“[S]worn affidavits from eyewitnesses in Alaska [have testified] that ballot boxes were stuffed with “hundreds”of ballots; that write-in ballots from the Native Alaskan villages of Cordova and Angoon were all written by the same person; that a Fairbanks ballot box was easily accessible and prime for voter fraud; and that major employers intimidated workers by driving them to the polls and giving them Murkowski campaign items to take inside the voting booth. Earlier, secret cameras caught federal contractors encouraging their employees to vote for Lisa Murkowski.”—Ben Johnson
