Roy Moore supporters scuttled Bill Pryor's chances for SCOTUS seat, but new report doesn't tell full story about Pryor's ties to badpuppy.com and gay porn

Bill Pryor No. 1
Roy Moore supporters helped stick a fork in Bill Pryor's chances for a U.S. Supreme Court seat earlier this year by arguing Pryor too often sided with gay interests, according to a report at a conservative news/propaganda site. A prominent Alabama whistle blower and opposition researcher suggests the site, Yellowhammer News (YH), isn't telling the whole story.

Quin Hilyer, author of the YH article, takes Democrat Doug Jones to task for a recent ad hinting that Moore, while chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, went easy on child sexual abusers because -- as reported in a string of investigative articles connected to the Moore v. Jones U.S. Senate special election (set for Dec. 12) -- Moore himself is a child sexual abuser.

Hilyer decries Jones' attack on Roy Moore, just as he finds Moore's earlier attack on Bill Pryor to be unseemly. But Hilyer does not complete the circle with the Pryor story and essentially sets up a false equivalency. Siegelman-case whistle blower Jill Simpson, in a post at her Facebook page, is more than happy to complete the circle that allegedly torpedoed Pryor's SCOTUS hopes.

In so doing, she raises the likelihood that -- regardless of what Roy Moore supporters might have done -- the genesis of the Pryor implosion rests with our reporting at Legal Schnauzer on the judge's ties to 1990's gay pornography. In fact, Simpson adds some fascinating history about the Pryor gay-porn photos, which are connected to a couple of Montgomery lawyers -- one on the right and one on the left.

Bill Pryor No. 2
As a right-wing "think tank" type, Hilyer assiduously eschews any reference to Pryor's nude photos that appeared at badpuppy.com. (Hilyer also fails to reference Pryor's exceptionally close relationship with Trump AG Jeff Sessions, which involved the "evil elf" making frequent late-night visits -- caught on surveillance -- to Pryor's Montgomery apartment.) Here is how Hilyer explains his distaste for the Doug Jones ads about Roy Moore:

Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones’ latest ad highlights three Alabama Supreme Court cases in which then-Chief Justice Moore “sided” with defendants accused of sexual crimes involving minors. The obvious implication is that Moore sympathizes with such sexual abusers because he is one.

Hilyer then decries the hatchet job Moore supporters supposedly executed on Pryor, when Donald Trump was considering the Alabamian for a seat on the nation's highest court:

Moore’s associates bizarrely accused Pryor of being “a strong ally of the homosexual lobby” merely because Pryor’s decisions (or dissents) in three cases happened to reach “results” favored by homosexual parties to the case. I joined some conservative legal luminaries in explaining how viciously unfair the accusation was, because in all three cases Pryor’s legal reasoning was plain for all to see, and it hewed closely to the actual facts at hand and the specific procedural issues involved.

Hilyer posits that Moore associates attacked Pryor on "intellectual" and "legal reasoning" grounds. But look what Hilyer conveniently left out. In the Jones-Moore scenario, Hilyer claimed "the obvious implication is that Moore sympathizes with such sexual abusers because he is one." The implication in the Moore-Pryor scenario would be of a parallel nature: That Pryor sympathizes with gay interests because he is gay. More specifically, as our Legal Schnauzer reporting has shown, Pryor is ardently homophobic in his public statements while being a married, closeted gay in his private life.

Bill Pryor No. 3
Quin Hilyer might not want to complete the circle on the Bill Pryor story, but Jill Simpson is more than happy to do it. She is quick to say that she was not aware Roy Moore supporters had anything to do with Pryor finishing a distant third, with Neil Gorsuch of Colorado taking top honors, in the SCOTUS sweepstakes -- although she gives Team Moore props if they were able to pull that off.

Simpson, however, does not seem to buy the notion that the Moore crowd attacked Pryor only on a "legal debate" basis. She suggests any such attack almost certainly included an emphasis on Pryor's ties to gay porn -- he sympathizes with gays because he is a closeted gay -- and that comes back to our reporting. We have published four nude photographs of Pryor that were taken during his college days at Northeast Louisiana in the 1980s and found their way to badpuppy.com as the digital era exploded in the 1990s, shortly after Pryor became Alabama attorney general.

Here is Simpson's take on Hilyer's article and the information he leaves out:

I had no idea it was Roy Moore's group who destroyed Pryor's chance of getting on the Supreme Court,  but cheers to Roy on that one. We progressives also fought against Pryor getting on the bench, for political prosecution matters against Don Siegelman and other progressives. Pryor might claim to be a terrific good Catholic, who believes in religious freedom, but I recently saw the clip of him basically asking Roy to denounce God, and Roy refusing, which cost him his bench seat. That is not a good Catholic to put on the Supreme Court. After watching, I realized Pryor is more creepy than I thought.

Simpson also reveals the Pryor gay-porn photos have revolved for years around two Montgomery attorneys -- Tommy Gallion (a conservative) and Priscilla Duncan (a liberal):

I find it amusing that Roy Moore's bunch was unhappy with Pryor since he is so gay friendly in cases to the LBGTQ community. Years ago, trying to show what a hypocrite Pryor was -- talking all his religious-right BS -- a bunch of his Bad Puppy pictures fell in my lap as Priscilla [Duncan], my lawyer at that time, had a stash that included the magazine her husband had obtained to help back Pryor off Siegelman.

Bill Pryor No. 4
Then I got to see Tommy Gallion's set after I introduced Priscilla to [investigative journalist] Wayne Madsen, and some [of the photos] appeared [at Madsen's site]. Poor Gallion thought he owned the one set, only to be surprised that Priscilla had a pretty good collection as well.
Priscilla and Gallion both were pretty good oppo folks for their respective parties, and I got caught in the middle, as I at times, was represented by both before my testimony in DC.
Simpson then gives Gallion credit for having the better collection of Pryor porn:

I must admit Gallion's collection was far better than Prscilla's collection, and the drum major outfit -- with the cape and Pryor naked -- is something I will never forget seeing in my entire life. 
So hats off to Roy if he knocked out Pryor from going on the Supreme Court bench. After seeing the photos that I believe are Pryor naked in the drum major cape, I have often wondered what he wears under his 11th Circuit robe -- and does he on occasion surprise folks with what is lurking under it, like he did with his drum major cape in the picture I saw? 
I know it is naughty to ponder, but once you see the Gallion collection, you never forget that cape outfit. Roy Mooe did a public service if he got Pryor off the Supreme Court because Pryor is 100 percent eaten up by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which favors the 1 percent of richest Americans. They harm all of us when they own court members and, the chamber is where Pryor's loyalty lies.

Bottom line: Roy Moore's supporters might have caused Bill Pryor's SCOTUS dreams to fly off the tracks, but they almost certainly could not have done it without a major boost from our reporting at Legal Schnauzer.

This scenario, by the way, is worth considering: What if Moore representatives went to, say, Jeff Sessions earlier this year and said, in so many words: "We are about to blow the rails off the underground gay train you and Pryor have been riding for years -- unless you make sure his SCOTUS nomination gets derailed?" And what if Sessions, Pryor, and Bob and Rob Riley now are firing back by supporting Doug Jones and helping to unearth tales of Moore's taste for the tender flesh of teen-aged girls?

That would fit. As we've reported here, with assistance from Jill Simpson, Jones is firmly ensconced in the GOP Sessions/Pryor/Riley camp. And this would be exactly the kind of bare-knuckles, back-street brawling that has caused Alabama to become perhaps the country's No. 1 political sewer.

Not a big fan of Roy Moore, but if he kept Bill Pryor off SCOTUS, God bless him.

Four "Pryor porn" photos in one place? That's almost more than my stomach can handle at breakfast time.

So good to see Bill Pryor's schlong back in the news again.

Legal Schnauzer kept Pryor off SCOTUS, not Roy Moore.

Just before Thanksgiving 2016, trip to Washington, met with Rudy in Trump Hotel and discussed copies of Alabama documents qualifying for investigations into The Hobbs Act, and specifically revealing first hand via hand delivered envelope Pryor's narratives and photos from gay history and background.

@8:16 --

Interesting. Is "Rudy" the one also known as "Guiliani"? You're saying Moore supporters met with Guiliani? Can you elaborate on the alleged Hobbs Act issues, who was the target of those?

By Pryor narratives, I assume you mean posts from Legal Schnauzer? I'm not aware of such narratives being published anywhere else, other than numerous news outlets that followed up on our reporting.

Are the Pryor photos ones other than those published at LS?

LS --

You've got to find the photos of Pryor wearing the cape -- and nothing else. What a hoot.

Bill Pryor got on the federal bench because of one attribute -- and it's hanging between his legs. That's what "Evil Elf" Jeff Sessions always has found attractive about "Tripod Pryor."

No one should ever use the words "Yellowhammer" and "News" in the same sentence. What a joke! It should be called the Dax Swatek Conservative Fake News Service.

Hope Bill Pryor rots in hell. He did more than anyone else to steal the 2002 election for Bob Riley. Would like to see Pryor roasting on a spit, with a pineapple in his mouth and flames all around. Yours is coming someday, Billy Boy, and it might not be all that far off.

Doug Jones has a man crush on Bill Pryor. You ought to read Jones' 2007 House Judiciary testimony. It's basically a public blow job for Pryor. Sickening.

If Priscilla Duncan's husband got a copy of the gay-porn magazine why didn't Siegelman use it more effectively?

Anonymous said...

@12:10 --

Good question. Perhaps the Siegelman case shifted from a state to a federal investigation when Rove & Co. realized Pryor was vulnerable because of the gay stuff? Not sure, though.

Doug Jones is such a phony. Any Democrat who plans to vote for that horse's ass needs to consider these words from Jones' 2007 testimony. Jones got out his knee pads for Bill Pryor's benefit:

"Despite the fact that he somehow seems to be touched with the broad brush of allegations of partisanship in this matter, the fact is that Bill Pryor has never advocated an investigation for any reason other than that which the law requires, the investigation of criminal activity without regard to political affiliation. He never shied away from tough public corruption cases, but I never saw him pursue any criminal matter for partisan political purposes. Had I seen any evidence of that in the years we worked together, I would have never supported his nomination to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals as I was proud to do."

Priscilla Duncan said...

The only true comment here about Priscilla Duncan is that she is a lawyer and a Democrat. Jill Simpson never met her husband. There was no magazine. I now doubt all I read here. Simpson is as big a liar as Roy Moore.

the one thing you can say about Doug Jones, is he doesn't try to have sex with teen age girls. In Canada we have a name for men who want to have sex with under age females: pedophile.

The post certainly details a lot of back ground on Alabama politics. You couldn't make this up, if you tried.

Tribalism is alive and well in Alabama, right or wrong, I'll vote for you if you're part of my tribe. Not good for the future of any country.

Still hungry for more news about BP and his marvelous and now widely seen pinga. What's up? Why no more pictures for almost a year? I'd pay for the magazine.

Some things in life can't be rushed, I've found -- they sort of unfold at their own pace. The Hunt for Bill Pryor Schlong Photos seems to fall into that category. Our lines are open 24/7, and operators are standing by, for those who might be able to add to our celebrated Pryor Collection.
