Republican campaign staff crime wave! (latest 2/21)

Post by Mr. Fed » Thu Jul 12, 2007 6:23 pm

Y'all will recall one of Giuliani's state campaign reps being arrested for cocaine distribution.

Don't count McCain out, though. Surprisingly, he still has campaign staffers, they haven't all resigned.

One, though, has started a jobs program.
State Rep. Bob Allen was arrested Wednesday afternoon at a local park after offering to perform a sex act on an undercover officer in exchange for $20, police said.

Allen, R-Merritt Island, was booked into the Brevard County jail in Sharpes on a charge of solicitation to commit prostitution, a second-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in the county jail and a $500 fine.
Allen is just showing the sort of business spirit that makes the party great.
Titusville police were at Veteran's Memorial Park on East Broad Street on a burglary detail when they noticed an unshaven man acting suspicious, going in and out of the restroom three times, said Lt. Todd Hutchinson.

An undercover officer decided to go into one of the bathroom stalls, Hutchinson said. Moments later, Allen knocked on the stall door and offered to perform oral sex on the officer for $20, according to the police spokesman.
And ... wait for it ...
Allen told a television reporter that what happened was a "misunderstanding."

No, no, wait...am I going to pay you, or you pay me?


He's McCain's Florida campaign chair.

Oh .. and from the AP, dramatic convention is satisfied:
The lawmaker had sponsored a failed bill that would have tightened the state's prohibition on public sex.

And the crime wave continues...
he exposed himself in front of a female employee and chased her around the room yelling "Suck it, baby, suck it." It is unclear whether or not there was physical contact. She filed a personnel complaint.

In a one-sentence letter to House Speaker Joe Hackney, the two-term Republican lawmaker from Stanly County immediately resigned his seat representing the 67th House District.
He should have talked to Bob Allen and made 20 bucks.

Party like it's 1951
Coy Privette, a retired Baptist pastor, conservative lawmaker and outspoken advocate for Christian groups, was charged Thursday with paying a 32-year-old Salisbury prostitute for sex acts.

The 74-year-old Cabarrus County commissioner was arrested at his home in Kannapolis early Thursday. He appeared before a Rowan County magistrate on six misdemeanor charges and was released on a promise to appear in court Aug. 22. He did not return e-mail messages or calls to his cell and home phones, and no one answered the door at his Kannapolis home.

Privette, a prominent Republican with a 30-year career, is one of the state's most vocal opponents of alcohol sales and legal gambling. He also serves on the State Baptist Convention of North Carolina and as president of the Christian Action League of North Carolina.

The Bob Allen update
.
State Representative Bob Allen told police he was intimidated and just playing along when an undercover officer suggested the lawmaker give him $20 and oral sex in a public restroom.
Intimidated? Into oral sex? That's a good one.
Allen indicates he was scared when approached in the Veterans Memorial Park men's room. He said --quote-- "This was a pretty stocky black guy, and there was nothing but other black guys around in the park."

It's sad to see how Republican loyalty to their own party members has fallen these past few years.

Whatever happened to the days when they would back up someone like Maui Rep. Brian Blundell even after he groped an undercover officer in a public park men's room?

Well, they've already convinced their base that black men are pathologically sexually aggressive towards white women. How hard would it be to convince them that they're sexually aggressive towards white Republican men as well?

Here's the police report, by the way.

Apparently the freshly elected head of the Young Republicans, Glenn Murphy, has been forced to step down due to allegedly giving a do not want BJ to sleeping man after a Young Republicans function. After having every mention of him scrubbed from the national Young Republicans site he penned a why I stepped down letter that is almost as bad at saving face as scary stocky black guy remarks. He makes no mention of the investigation in the letter at all. Amazingly this isn't the first time he has been in trouble for such thing. Read the fun here.

OMG there's more, this time among the Michigan Young Republicans...
The former head of the Michigan Federation of Young Republicans admitted today that he sexually abused a colleague during a national convention here last summer.

Michael Flory, a 32-year-old attorney from Jackson, Mich., pleaded guilty to sexual battery on the day he was to stand trial for rape.

...

Flory gained some notoriety at age 18 when he gave a televised speech to the Republican National Convention in the Houston Astrodome in 1992. The Michigan Young Republicans' Web site once hailed him as "one of the rising stars of GOP politics in America" and declared that "Mike has earned a great name for himself."
The details are as tawdry as you would expect.

What is it with restrooms and Republicans? I've been in a fair number of restrooms, and personally they are pretty much the last place I would like to conduct "lewd conduct". I mean like, ew, and shit. Not to unduly disparage the fine state of Minnesota's public facilities.

For non-link clickers, apparently Republican Senator Larry Craig of Iowa pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct based on an attempt to get an undercover Minnesota police officer to do lewd things to/with him in an airport restroom. He calls it a "misunderstanding".

Again in Minnesota! Looks like the GOP picked the right location for their convention. Maybe they should change their name from Grand Old Party to Circuit Party.

Now, let's be fair to Senator Craig. It's pretty obvious that access to anonymous homosexual sex in restrooms is very important to a large number of Republicans. As a prominent Republican who happened to be passing through our lovely metropolitan area, investigating the available possibilities is the considerate thing to do. Now the other Republicans know that airport bathroom is not a good place to go when they're in town for their 2008 convention.

What kills me is that in their minds, having anonymous sex with strangers in public bathrooms is somehow better than being openly gay and possibly in a committed relationship with a same-sex partner.

It's a crazy society we live in.

Rubbing his foot? Making hand gestures under the stall partition?

I can't keep up with gay code. I'm just going to visit public restrooms and yell out random phrases until I get an offer. Than I'll remember to avoid those phrases.

Me: (standing at urinal) "Lafayette, I have arrived!"

Guy standing next to me: "Oh, you want a Cleveland steamer, eh?"

Me: "Hell no, just testin' the waters." (leaves in a hurry)

2 minutes pass

Me: (reappearing at urinal next to previous guy) "Ummm...what's the 'steamer' part entail?"
