So, Richard Curtis resigned. Do you know Richard Curtis?
Rep. Richard Curtis, 48, said he was resigning immediately to spare his wife and children more public embarrassment. In a written statement, Curtis said, "Events that have recently come to light have hurt a lot of people. I sincerely apologize for any pain my actions may have caused."
Curtis, a Republican, told a newspaper in his southwest Washington district on Monday that sex was not involved in what he said was an extortion attempt. He also declared he was not gay.
But in police reports, Curtis said he was being extorted by a man he had sex with at a hotel room in Spokane, where Curtis was attending a GOP retreat. The other man, Cody Castagna, 26, contends Curtis reneged on a promise to pay $1,000 for sex.
Yeah, extortion... computer says nooooo
This is just the latest in a long list of GOP sex scandals. Now, don't get me wrong... I have no problems with sex. I have no problem with anyone getting their freak on for that matter... What I have a problem with is the hypocrisy. I do not think it is right to legislate against gay rights, against same sex unions, against hate crimes being disignated for the GLBT community when so many of them turn around and break the laws they legistated for by hiring prostitutes, having adulterous affairs, and things like that (can you say wet suit?) .
What is going on with the GOP? Maybe, just maybe they should erect a tent that is bigger than their closets....
After the sex scandals of 2006, you would think the GOP would have learned to keep these things... well... in the closet.
Instead, so far this year, we have Gary Aldridge, Bob Allen, Glenn Murphy Jr, David Vitter, Larry Craig, Richard Curtis, let's see who else did I miss? Was our favorite Crystal Methodist this year or last? I simply can't keep them all straight (pardon the pun) anymore.
It is time for the GOP to stop being the family moral abstinance values party that preaches to America. It is time to either start practicing what they so haughtily try to impose on all of us OR... better yet... get off the box and just be honest with themselves and the rest of America.
Alrighty. Tri Supplied the Bagels, we got the coffee going... and BobR Wishes all of you... Feliz Dia de Las MEurtos!!!
How is that for a great team effort? See you inside.
:peace: and :heart:
