I don't think most of the stories have delved much further than the OMG SEX, because that really is all most of the press care about. A congressman caught with his pants down again....

I'm a little cynical in that I don't think he's worse than the other congressmen caught doing things they should not have done. Most of the actuall illegal stuff goes right under the radar because it's just money, not OMG SEX!

I'm also aware that I could never ever run for any position in politics at ALL, not even city council, because I am sleeping with two guys, and one of them is married!

They know about each other and the wife likes me and is ok with it, but, you know if it hit the press, that no one would care about that. They'd just call me a slut and a whore and it would be over.

And that's the way it used to be for people who were gay in politics. It took years of pretty much exactly what you said (as well as marches, etc) for that to change, but it DID, and things aren't going to get any better for us until we do the same.

Yesterday while driving some where I heard a news story in which a porn star who he had been exchanging emails with basically said she thought he was creepy. Every chance he got he try to work in something about his dick.. On top of that he called her and told her to lie about the the whole thing . So if a porn star thinks he's creepy that's enough for me....
