Did you guys know that Republican Rep. Phillip is a tea party favorite too?
The Indianapolis Star reported that emails suggest Republican Rep. Phillip Hinkle arranged to pay Kameryn Gibson up to $140 for “for a really good time.” The paper published emails between Hinkle and Gibson detailing a plan for them to meet at a downtown Indianapolis hotel.
The pair reportedly connected on Craigslist. Gibson indicated in a listing to which Hinkle responded that he is 20-years-old. According to the Star, however, Gibson says he is actually just 18.
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, a Republican, called the situation "a tragedy."
The Evansville Courier & Press reports:
Hinkle, who is 64 and was first elected in 2000, voted this spring for a constitutional gay marriage ban. Several years ago he also was the House sponsor of the measure that created Indiana’s “In God We Trust” license plates.
Hinkle is not the first politician to find himself in hot water over an alleged sex scandal involving Craigslist. U.S. Rep. Chris Lee (R-N.Y.) resigned earlier this year after finding himself embroiled in controversy. The AP reported in February:
Bill Clinton was a democratic party favorite, he lied to congress. He cheated on Hillary, though looking at her and listening to that shrill voice I can understand why. But none the less, he was prez, a big difference from a state Rep.
As far as TP favorite, well look at it this way. We the TP can not use a brain probe to see what lurks behind the words he speaks. If you cared to evaluate things in their entirety, you will see the TP is up in arms. I just emailed him and told him to resign, to go away. Or else become a democrat, the platform that embraces perversion.
