A left-wing college professor from California has been arrested and charged after unknowingly trying to arrange a way he can rape a seven-year-old little girl in an FBI sting operation.
Rodger “Rod” Githens, an associate professor at the University of the Pacific, has been charged with receipt and distribution of child porn, and attempts to sexually exploit a child, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Eastern District of California.
Per the New York Post:
The graphic complaint includes extensive details of Githens’ online conversations with an undercover FBI agent posing as a “‘taboo-friendly’” 30-year-old man who claimed to be sexually active with his 7-year-old niece.
During the exchange that began on Grindr on March 25, Githens said he was “experienced” with molesting children and expressed interest in meeting the man and his niece.
“[I would] love to have a dad or uncle invite me,” he allegedly wrote after the pair moved their conversation to the encrypted Telegram messenger service.
When discussing plans to meet in Fresno, Githens said he would bring the girl “her favorite chocolate bar…and an Ariel doll.”
The FBI later executed a warrant to search Githens’ home and found child porn videos that he has shared with other pedophiles.
Githens was the Alexandra Greene Ottesen Endowed Chair for Leadership & Organization Development at University of the Pacific.
His Twitter account has many mentions of Democrat political causes and news, including anti-gun posts, and posts attacking Trump and the fake :insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021.
Many #employees want to do meaningful work and they want their employer to either support or align with their values and identities. In this article, I outline two models #employers can use to address employee #activism.

There are decent people in politics. Rep. Tom Malinowski: "…it was 1 in the morning… I noticed somebody on his hands and knees…and it was Andy all by himself, just quietly removing debris and putting it in a plastic bag. He was clearly not doing it for an audience." https://t.co/BjhCHsuppo
