Anti-Gay Lawmaker Resigns After Getting Caught with a Man in His Office
Ohio state lawmaker, Wesley Goodman, who was vehemently anti-gay has resigned after he was allegedly caught having sex with a man in his office.
Goodman, 33, was elected last year after working for the Conservative Action Project, a network of economic, social and national security conservatives; and he also worked for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. His wife is an assistant director of the ‘March for Life’, an annual rally protesting abortion.
Apparently, Goodman’s public image of a conservative, married, anti-LGBTQ straight man was at odds with his private life. In private, he exchanged salacious texts and emails with gay men he met on Capitol Hill, and sent sexually suggestive messages to young men he met through conservative circles who were too intimidated to publicly complai. The Washington Post reported that he was finally driven out of the conservative “Council for National Policy” after he tried to pull the pants off the teenage son of a Republican donor in a hotel room in the middle of the night.
Goodman seemed to confirm the incident, saying in a statement: “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life,” he said. “That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service. For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry.”
Hmm, I’m gonna start keeping track of how many anti-gay lawmakers get outed as gay. Seems to happen fairly often.http://sambagblog.com/2017/11/20/anti-gay-lawmaker-resigns-getting-caught-man-office/http://sambagblog.com/gallery/2017/11/Wesley-Goodman-gay-640x426.jpghttp://sambagblog.com/gallery/2017/11/Wesley-Goodman-gay-120x80.jpgGay Issues
