er. I would have tried to leave, too...
18-year old Kameryn Gibson was approached by a supposedly "in shape married professional, 5'8", fit 170 lbs, and love getting and staying naked," through the Craigslist M4M hookup forum. The "professional" offered Gibson up to $140 in order to come over to his hotel room and have sex with him. Gibson agreed, and came to the hotel room, only to find anti-gay state Rep. Phillip Hinkle waiting. The story then takes a turn for the even grosser, as Gibson attempted to leave:
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.The story appears to have been corroborated by incriminating e-mails on the BlackBerry, but Hinkle hasn't commented much on the scandal except to refer to it as a "shakedown."
Good job, Hinkle! You've joined the hallowed ranks of social conservatives who secretly like to get some man-on-man humpin'! Such luminaries as Larry Craig, Mike Haggard, and George Rekers have trailblazed this path before you, and I look forward to seeing your crisis of faith, resignation, ex-gay counseling, etc.
