Blaine Border Chief Accused of Raping Foster Child

The Bellingham Herald is reporting that Joe Giuliano, the subject of a previous SW cover story, has admitted to having sex with his 14-year-old foster child.

Giuliano, who is by far the most accessible border patrol agent I've ever interviewed, seemed to me a pretty good guy. As a reporter in Southern Arizona, I spent plenty of time with Border Patrol agents. Most of them - not all - but most of them were complete assholes. Giuliano, I always thought, was a breath of fresh air. He actually considered the lives of the migrants who fell under his control and took the time to listen to the concerns of the community. I always thought that was pretty admirable.

So, to say that this accusation comes as a shock to me is an understatement. I'd like to believe it didn't happen, but if everything the Bellingham Herald says is true, it looks like a pretty open and shut case.
