Again... and again. Yet another Republican who's done all in his legislative power to stamp out equality has been caught as a closet queer. Man, this story gets weary.
This time, 64-year old Indiana State Rep. Phillip Hinkle, who is married with two children, was nabbed paying a 20-year-old man he met over Craigslist for "a really good time."
The homophobic closet case admitted to the Indianapolis Star Tuesday that he exchanged e-mails with the young man, who wrote, "I need a sugga daddy," on the site's section for "casual encounters" between two men.
Hinkle paid Kameryn Gibson $80, promising a $50 tip for their salacious meeting... but the two did nothing but discuss sports, according to the politico—despite Gibson's admission that the Republican Congressman exposed himself and then tried to pay him off with $100 cash, an iPad and Blackberry to keep quiet. The homophobe, who voted in favor of a constitutional same-sex marriage ban earlier this year, made clear to the Star, "I'm not gay," and lamented, "I don't know why I did it. I was on the road to self-destruction."
Perhaps I can clear that up: Mr. Hinkle, you did it because you've lived a lifetime in a lie and such self-loathing became too much to bare, uh, bear. Honey, I can assure you, you'd find inner peace if you had the strength to be honest. But when you have the power to impact the legislature because of your own fear, you deserve every iota of shame that's coming out now.
