My problem with thes entire incident is that this apparently happened in a PUBLIC RESTROOM. I have kids, and I really don’t think that sort of behavior is something they need to be exposed to. They have to grow up fast enough already.
Well, there’s that, too.
I see Barney Frank weighed in on this:
“What he did, it’s hypocritical, but it’s not an abuse of his office in the sense that he was taking money for corrupt votes,” said Frank, D-Mass. “I think people should resign when they have clearly done the job in a way that is dishonest.”
Actually, Barney, the police report indicates that he tried to use his position as a US Senator to influence the arresting officer’s decision to charge:
Added Frank: “It’s one thing to say that someone can’t be trusted to vote without being corrupt, it’s another to say that he can’t be trusted to go to the bathroom by himself.”
So we have a Senator who we ‘trust’ to make the laws for this country and we can’t trust him not to solicit anonymous sex in a men’s bathroom?
What is it about these bathrooms?
I mean, the last place I would find ’sexy’ would be a men’s public bathroom. Hell, I can’t think of the last time I was ever sexually aroused in my own personal bathroom.
The sound of Sloan valves flushing just doesn’t do it for me.
Then there was Bob Allen, the bathroom trawler of the Florida House. He was arrested last month on a charge that he offered to perform oral sex on an undercover cop and pay him $20. Later, he said that he did it because he was afraid of the other black men in the bathroom.
I’m thinking that maybe someone is putting something in those deodorizer sprays in the public bathrooms that cause high profile, otherwise, “Not Gay” Republicans to want to perform sex acts in the bathroom all of a sudden.
Whatever it is, you Republicans had better get to the bottom of it soon (no pun intended), because guess what city the Republican Convention is going to be in…
