Is there another anti-gay Republican political sex scandal brewing?

Posted on August 21st, 2011 by admin1 in republican email lists

I can’t beleive it! — I guess that makes me an atheist — but it seems that it’s always the married anti-gay Republican politicians who want to pay for gay sex. All the Gay Democrats want to get married, lol . . .
What’s up with that?

Anyway, here’s the link . . .

Emails shared with The Indianapolis Star suggest that state Rep. Phillip Hinkle — responding to a local posting on Craigslist — offered a young man $80 plus tip to spend time with him Saturday night at the JW Marriott hotel.

The emails, sent from Hinkle’s publicly listed personal address, ask the young man for "a couple hours of your time tonight" and offer him cash up front, with a tip of up to $50 or $60 "for a really good time."

The email exchange is in response to the Craigslist posting in which the young man — who lists his age as 20 in the ad but says he is 18 years old — says, "I need a sugga daddy."

The young man told The Star that they met, but that he tried to leave after the man told him he was a state lawmaker. He said the lawmaker at first told him he could not leave, grabbed him in the rear, exposed himself to the young man and then later gave him an iPad, BlackBerry cellphone and $100 cash to keep quiet.

When contacted by The Star about the emails, Hinkle, a Republican who represents portions of Pike and Wayne townships, did not contest the emails but said, "I am aware of a shakedown taking place."

Asked what he meant by shakedown, Hinkle would not elaborate. He directed further questions to his attorney.

Hinkle’s lawyer, defense attorney Peter Nugent, said he was unable to say what Hinkle meant by a "shakedown." Nugent said he is investigating the situation, but he does not know what happened Saturday. Nugent said he has not filed a police report and does not yet know whether he will.

Asked whether he had seen the emails and the Craigslist posting, Nugent said, "Oh, I’ve seen some emails, but not all of them." He would not be more specific.

"I’m trying to get to the bottom of everything involved," Nugent said.

Wednesday, Nugent faxed this "official statement":

"Representative Hinkle is aware of the inquiries by The Indianapolis Star and we are investigating the matter at this time. We request that everyone respect the privacy of the family at this time."

Hinkle, 64, who lists his occupation as coordinator for community partnerships for Wayne Township Schools on the Indiana House website, has been a state lawmaker since 2000. He is best known in the Statehouse for his interest in local government issues. On the website, he also notes he was a co-author of the bill that created the "In God We Trust" license plate.

The young man, Kameryn Gibson, told The Star he posted the Craigslist ad in the "Casual Encounters" section under m4m, which is shorthand for men for men. He used his adopted sister’s email address.

    It’d be ironic but unsurprising. It seems it’s always republicans who are caught with guy-on-guy scandals.

    Republicans love to violate civil liberties, especially on homosexuals…we need to get the far-righters out of office and allow homosexuals the right to be equal citizens, not second-class.References : agnostic

    Whenever it is a political sex scandal involving homosexuality, you always know it’s the Republican Party (Mark Foley, Larry Craig, etc.) But whenever it is a political sex scandal involving straight sex, you know it’s the Democrat Party (Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, etc.)References :

    religion created murder, war, paedophilia and hate.

    some religious people do not hate but most atheists love. giving away a good will not help people but their children might grow up without a brainwashed opinion of the world. we are not all equal but must be given the opportunity to become equalReferences :
