The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Kimberly Riordan. Knucklehead doesn't do justice when describing this Wilmington Township Illinois mother. She allowed her fourteen year old handicapped daughter to be raped by a child molestor and then tried to pay the man hush money. Where do mothers like her and this one come from? To do this to their own flesh and blood? Crimes like this just infuriate me and they are getting all too common.
For allowing a heinous crime to be committed against her daughter, Kimberly Riordan is today's Knucklehead of the day.

A Wilmington woman took $10,000 to cover up the crime of a man who repeatedly raped her disabled teenage daughter for months, Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow said Thursday.
"I've been doing this for 28 years, and I've never come across a case with allegations of this nature," Glasgow said after announcing the charges against Kimberly Riordan.
Riordan, 32, reportedly retained a twice-convicted sex offender to baby-sit her quadriplegic daughter, who suffers from cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair.
The suspect, Larry Lee Southwood, 68, of Wilmington Township, raped the 14-year-old for the nine months leading up to his arrest Christmas Day, police said.
Southwood paid Riordan $10,000 to keep her from ratting him out to the cops, and she went along with the deal, lying to Detective Sgt. David Margliano, Glasgow said.
Riordan claimed she had no idea Southwood raped her daughter. She was charged with three felonies in the incident -- criminal neglect of a disabled person, obstructing justice and concealing a fugitive.
Riordan has a son and another daughter, Glasgow said, and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services took custody of all three children Wednesday night. Riordan surrendered Thursday evening and was held in lieu of $250,000 bond.
