Rennie, who resigned from his position at LGBT Youth following his arrest late last year, lobbied for homosexual issues in the Scottish parliament, and has visited with the Prime Minister of England as “the Executive’s most important and influential adviser on gay issues affecting children,” according to the Daily Mail.

Among other issues, the group lobbied for adoption to homosexual couples under Rennie’s leadership.

Rennie and fellow homosexual activist Neil Strachan, who was found guilty of assaulting an 18-month-old boy he was babysitting on New Year’s Eve 2005, are facing maximum sentences of life in prison as the ringleaders of an extensive network of pedophiles.

The two men shared victims and images of the abuse with six other men found guilty in the bust. The group was found guilty last week of over 50 charges, including sex attacks on children, conspiring to abuse children, and possessing and distributing child pornography.
