One is a Congressman from Indiana who hired a teenage male hooker from Craigslist, but then tried to say that this was some sort of political takedown he was trying to expose (?!). The other is a senator in Puerto Rico who was on Grindr with some very explicit photos which he claimed had been taken to document his recent weight loss. Oh Mary please!
I have an article out today about some of these summer '11 sex scandals as part of NEXT magazine's end-of-summer yearbook issue. (It should post to their site this weekend.) And over at New York magazine, the scandals have inspired them to compile a brilliant list of the top 6 worst excuses by gay politicians. To mangle Shakespeare--these ladies doth protest waaaay too much.
