I've been coming across so many of these types of articles in the last few months it's getting pretty humorous. I think that most people, at least most of the Democrats aren't really concerned with facts and details of what happens and people sexual preferences, just that those involved are rabidly anti-gay hypocrites. So I'll start collecting the articles I come across.

Yeah, you just don't see a headline like that every day. The only thing missing is that the cross-dressing lawmaker is an anti-gay Republican and the tryst was with a man.
So you have to read Pam Spaulding's post on this latest GOP gay sex scandal. This one is from Washington State and as you read through the post and the updates, it just keeps getting better. So, read it. Pam got some of the updates from Dan Savage at The SLOG. Okay, Dan's post is also a must-read including all the updates. The whole story is sordid and creepy and just keeps getting better. Dan wrote, "My head is EXPLODING."
Through Dan, we got that headline in the title of the post, "Cross-dressing state lawmaker blackmailed following late night tryst" -- and it wouldn't be fair to not give a couple of the paragraphs:
State Representative Richard Curtis says he's not gay, but police reports and court records indicate the Republican lawmaker from southwestern Washington dressed up in women's lingerie and met a Medical Lake man in a local erotic video store which led to consensual sex at a downtown hotel and a threat to expose Curtis' activities publicly.
A search warrant unsealed Tuesday morning disclosed that State Representative Richard Curtis (R - La Center) had sex in his room at the Davenport Tower with a man identified as Cody Castagna, 26, of Medical Lake, who he met at the Hollywood Erotic Boutique on October 26th.
Curtis, according to a search warrant unsealed Tuesday, went to the Hollywood Erotic Boutique on East Sprague on October 26th at approximately 12:45 a.m. The store clerk, who had talked with Curtis, referred to him as "The Cross-Dresser" and said that during their conversations he confirmed he was gay and was married with children at home.Wow.

During his visit to the video store Curtis was observed wearing women's lingerie while receiving oral sex from an unidentified man in one of the movie viewing booths inside the store.
