Photos Show That Bill Pryor Has Same Eye Condition That Was Present In Young Man At Gay Porn Site

Bill Pryor
Photographs of Bill Pryor indicate the federal judge has an eye condition that clearly is present in the young "Bill Pryor" who was featured at a gay porn Web site in the 1990s.

Strabismus is the medical term for a crossing or misalignment of the eyes. It is a disorder involving the muscles surrounding each eye, causing the two eyes to not line up in the same direction. The condition commonly is known as "crossed eyes," although only one eye is misaligned in most cases. Strabismus can lead to a vision problem called amblyopia, or "lazy eye."

One of our sources on the Pryor story, a former agent with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation, said he was convinced the young man in the gay porn photos was the current federal judge because "Bill Pryor is hard to fake a photo of."

That probably was a reference to the fact that Judge Bill Pryor, the former attorney general of Alabama, has strabismus. The young man who appeared in the photos at badpuppy.com--reportedly taken when Pryor was a student at Northeast Louisiana University (now University of Louisiana Monroe) from 1980 to 1984--clearly has strabismus. (See a large version of the photo, with the genital area blacked out, at the bottom of this post.)

A number of surveys show that strabismus occurs in 3 to 4 percent of the U.S. Caucasian population, including infants. The incidence in the adult population is lower than that.

In most official photographs of recent vintage, Pryor tends to be posed toward his right, and his right eye appears to be misaligned. The young man in the gay porn photo is posed toward his left, and his left eye clearly is off center.

How could this be? There are several possible explanations. Some cases of strabismus are constant (at least one eye is always crossed), and some are intermittent (the eyes look normal at times). Many cases involve "alternating strabismus," where the misaligned eye can change from one to the other. The Web site allaboutvision.com has one of the most clear and succinct descriptions of the condition I've seen:

Strabismus is a failure of the two eyes to maintain proper alignment and work together as a team.
If you have strabismus, one eye looks directly at the object you are viewing, while the other eye is misaligned inward (esotropia, "crossed eyes" or "cross-eyed"), outward (exotropia or "wall-eyed"), upward (hypertropia) or downward (hypotropia).
Strabismus can be constant or intermittent. The misalignment also might always affect the same eye (unilateral strabismus), or the two eyes may take turns being misaligned (alternating strabismus).

Can the severity of strabismus lessen over time? Yes, and vision therapy can help in some cases. Surgery, however, is the primary treatment for the condition:

In most cases, the only effective treatment for a constant eye turn is strabismus surgery. If your general eye doctor finds that your child has strabismus, he or she can refer you to an ophthalmologist who specializes in strabismus surgery.
The success of strabismus surgery depends on many factors, including the direction and magnitude of the eye turn. In some cases, more than one surgery may be required. The strabismus surgeon can give you more information about this during a pre-surgical consultation.
Strabismus surgery also can effectively align the eyes of adults with long-standing strabismus. In many cases of adult strabismus, however, a significant degree of amblyopia may remain even after the affected eye is properly aligned. This is why early treatment of strabismus is so important.
The earlier strabismus is treated surgically, the more likely it is that the affected eye will develop normal visual acuity and the two eyes will function together properly as a team.

Did Bill Pryor have surgery between his college years and now to reduce the severity of strabismus? Sources who have seen Pryor a number of times in person say the eye misalignment now is noticeable, but it appears to have improved considerably from his younger days.

The only way to know for sure about possible treatment is to ask Bill Pryor himself. We did that recently, and we soon will let you know how that went.

Should there be someone with operational facilities and self-motivating faculties there may still exist an opportunity to further develop this weighty story.

The law school's year book, revealing photos and names of others attending at same time; who, if contacted may or not be able to offer additional information.

Such as close friends, professors, how did a gay porn magazine come to be allowed on college campus, or was this effort completely covered up from college officials?

What about contacting the editor of the magazine, after all they must be getting some mileage[s] off this story. Background on photo.

The first time Pryor engaged in a lie, as a vehicle to cover-up, to keep covered-up these activities began the first day of his DISQUALIFICATIONS for Senate approval to U.S. 11th Circuit.

Pryor's history of unethical and immoral character and credibility
undermines judgments from his bench; deeming him NOT WORTHY of sitting in judgment[s] over others; as result of putting himself ahead of his sworn unto oath since Attorney General, HE SHOULD RESIGN.

I had no serious doubt the young man in the photo is THE Bill Pryor. This just adds to the evidence.

You educated me a lot about the condition known as crossed eyes. I feel for those who suffer from this--although I find it hard to feel for an a-hole like Bill Pryor.

It will be a cold day in hell when Bill Pryor resigns. But I agree with @8:39. Pryor has no business serving on federal bench.

I'm interested in the psychology of strabismus. I'm sure most sufferers turn out to be good, caring people. But I wonder if the affliction can help turn some people (Bill Pryor?) into semi or full-blown sociopaths.

As the ABI guy said, it's hard to fake a photo of Bill Pryor.

I had not noticed the eye condition issue before. But it's very easy to see in the "young Pryor" story. In looking at roughly a dozen photos of "adult Pryor," it seems he has it, too. It's not as noticeable as it is in the earlier photos, but it's there.

This is an interesting new element to the story. But I've been convinced from the outset the photo was THE Bill Pryor, mainly because of the way he reacted to it.

LS, I'm betting Pryor granted you a lengthy interview on this subject.

In alternating strabismus, the misaligned eye can shift from one side to the other, depending on what the individual is trying to focus on. Pryor probably has a "good side," where the misalignment is less noticeable, and that's why he tends to be posed a certain way in his judicial photographs.

I'm more concerned with the disease in Pryor's brain than with any misalignment of his eyes.

Good point, @1:42. Something also is missing in Bill Pryor's soul, and I would suggest that is his biggest problem.

his jaw too

john kerry same jaw

the condition has an actual name, a scientific - medical 'name'
