Oh good grief – so disgusting. You can’t make this stuff up. This adult man man sleeps in a crib, drinks from a baby bottle, and wears huge diapers. So who changes them? His friend and nurse, Sandra Dias might. He also goes to work, at an adult job and designs baby furniture, including a highchair for himself. Perhaps the real story here, other than Social Security officials sending the man a check each month, is that he promises to kill himself if the benefits stop. Stanley Thornton’s “condition” is termed “Infantalism.” It’s not sexual, he says. Senator Tom Coburn is trying to encourage an investigation into the Social Security benefits Thornton allegedly receives. Disclaimer: Stanley Thornton is not related to me (Maggie Thornton).
[COBURN] “Given that Mr. Thornton is able to determine what is appropriate attire and actions in public, drive himself to complete errands, design and custom-make baby furniture to support a 350-pound adult and run an Internet support group, it is possible that he has been improperly collecting disability benefits for a period of time,” Coburn wrote in a letter in a letter to the Social Security Administration’s Social Security Administration Inspector General Patrick P. O’Carroll Jr.
In response to Coburn’s glaring light on his taxpayer paid benefits, Thornton has threatened to kill himself:
[THORNTON] “You wanna test how damn serious I am about leaving this world, screw with my check that pays for this apartment and food,” he said. “Try it. See how serious I am. I don’t care. I have no problem killing myself. Take away the last thing keeping me here, and see what happens. Next time you see me on the news, it will be me in a body bag.”
Did I mention that Stanley Thornton is a “bedwetter,” perhaps in the “Diaper Lover” category?
