In the title I said "freshly outed" and that's not exactly true. Conservative Republican-- and Florida Attorney General-- Charlie Crist was outed by his even more extreme right primary opponent, Tom Gallagher, and DWT duly reported it on May 2 (with a cute little homoerotic Republican Party animation you must see. But now we have a handsome Republican lad (photo above) who admited-- even boasted-- to having done... well, you know what, with Crist.

At least Jason Wetherington, a rising star-- well... an ex-rising star as of today-- in the Florida Republican Party, isn't 16 or even a teenager like the boys Republican congressmen Tom Foley (FL), Jim Kolbe (AZ) and Phil English (PA) are said to prefer. (No one knows what kind of boys Denny Hastert and Mitch McConnell like but we may have more news on that soon.) Anyway... Wetherington is a full gown 21 year old man and Charlie Crist is free to sodomize him to his heart's content. It's just kind of icky that he's been sending out viciously anti-gay campaign pieces-- saying that gay couples shouldn't be allowed to adopt children-- while he and Wetherington, an ex-Katherine Harris staffer (but who isn't?) were... well... you know.

Wetherington also named another Harris campaign worker, Bruce Carlton Jordan-- a convicted felon-- as Crist's long-time lover. Crist has publically denied even knowing who Jordan is. "I don't recall the name," he lied. But Crist also denies he ever had sex with Wetherington or with any other men. Of course, all Republicans deny everything when they're caught. Think: Foley, Abramoff, DeLay, Ney, Cunningham, etc

This story was broken by Bob Norman, the same reporter who first outed Foley in print. (Foley was outraged and, like Crist denied everything and anything.) Norman has huge credibility and his story seems water tight to me. I wonder if the right wing religionist voters who make up most of the base of Florida's Gay Old Party will pull the lever for Foley and Crist a week from Tuesday. Stay tuned.

Great post Howie.
Who are these people? They need to realize their money won't keep them safe from the hatered they perpetuate.

It's really amazing, isn't it? The GOP features draft dodgers as warmongers, perverts posing as prudes, and homosexuals behaving as homophobes. Hard (shoudl I have said "difficult"? I don't want to get Denny Hastert excited.) to believe that these people are supposed to be the political paragons of virtue.

As for Hastert, it's not a huge secret that Hastert's gay. Denny, a former high school boys wrestling coach, lived with his Chief of Staff (pardon the pun) for 20 years in a "bachelor pad," and when his wife, a former gym teacher, comes to visit, she stays in a hotel, while Denny stays in his apartment with his Chief of Staff.

And as you know, I don't care what anyone does in private. I don't even care if they"pretend" to be straight. What pisses me off is the way they use their position to work against gay rights. I can handle fakes; can't handle hypocrites.

Amazing, I've often said that when those cretins in power start pointing fingers (which Repugs are want to do) you can bet your 'sweet bippy' that the actions are merely distractions to keep the guilt of their accusations from being focused back on them, where they belong.
