Chances are you've read how GOP leaders like, Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senator Larry Craig (R-ID), Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), Republican religionist shill Ted Haggard, Congressman David Dreier (R-CA), ex-Congressman Mark Foley-- currently using hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to keep his sorry ass out of prison-- have consistently voted against the interests of gay men and women and supported a viciously homophobic Republican agenda while living wild gay lifestyles in their closets. But right wing sexual hypocrisy hardly begins or ends with the Republican gay mafia.

Big news in DC this weekend is about a prostitution ring-- oddly, for Republicans, involving women-- and heads in the Bush Regime inner circle are beginning to roll.

The demise of a call-girl ring and pending trial of an alleged madam claiming thousands of clients has the US capital riveted by the chance powerful men may now be caught with their trousers down, with a senior state department official apparently first to fall.

Deborah Jeane Palfrey, 50, dubbed the DC Madam in local media, has been arraigned in federal court on charges of operating a Washington prostitution service for 13 years until her retirement in 2006.

Palfrey has denied she ran a prostitution ring. Her company, Pamela Martin and Associates, was simply a "high-end adult fantasy firm which offered legal sexual and erotic services across the spectrum of adult sexual behavior and did so without incident during its 13 year tenure," she said.

Palfrey contends her escort service provided university educated women to engage in legal game-playing of a sexual nature at 275 dollars an hour for a 90 minute session, the Washington Post reported.

...Friday, the US State Department announced that Randall Tobias, the embattled head of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), was resigning for unspecified personal reasons.

...Tobias since 2003 also was President George W. Bush's first global AIDS coordinator, a job which drew criticism for his emphasis on faithfulness to partners and abstinence over condom use in trying to prevent the spread of the AIDS virus.

ABC News is reporting tonight that her clients go beyond Tobias and that plenty of Bush White House officials, Pentagon officials and well-connected Republicrook lobbyists and lawyers have been breaking the laws they demand the rest of us follow. Keep in mind that Tobias also insisted that his employees sign anti-prostitution loyalty oaths advocated by right wing religionist loons. Think Progress has a funny video of Brian Ross explaining how these Republicans are claiming they may have hired the hookers but that they didn't... inhale.

So at the same time you have the Republican transvestite running for president (of the United States... of America) flip flopping on his career-long support for gay civil unions turning around for the sake of redneck votes in a South Carolina GOP straw poll, you also get yet another right wing leader being arrested for child porn.
In the latest disaster to hit the American radical right, Kevin Alfred Strom, the founder of National Vanguard and a major neo-Nazi leader for nearly 20 years, has been arrested and charged with child pornography and witness tampering.

Federal agents arrested Strom near his home in Stanardsville, Va., on Jan. 4, after he was indicted for allegedly having pornographic images of children on his computer between Oct. 17, 2005, and last Aug. 4.

Unlike most of the people involved in the latest round of sex scandals, Strom wasn't working directly for the Bush Regime but he was a deputy to right-wing hero William Pierce, author of The Turner Diaries, the blueprint for the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. "Strom's arrest set off a firestorm on the radical right, which has seen a number of its key activists arrested recently for embarrassing crimes, some of them sexual in nature. "If Kevin's genuinely guilty," one extremist wrote on the racist Stormfront web forum shortly after the arrest, "then the credibility of his work-- indeed the credibility of all intelligent White nationalist work-- will be severely crippled, and we shall be reduced to apologetics for years to come."

Another wingnut, Bill White, a rival rightist, cut to the chase: "The fact is that the white nationalist movement has been littered with sexual deviants. The entire reactionary wing of the white nationalist movement is corrupt and must be destroyed." This probably has closeted Republican perverts cringing and hoping that don't get burned in these new scandals. Another Republican exposed-- this one far closer to the Bush Regime than either White or Strom was US naval commander Harlan Ullman, the man credited with developing Bush's "shock and awe" strategy.

I think you need to get in touch with some reality: immorality, sexual or otherwise, is not unique to one political party. Remember, Bill Clinton and adultery (more than a few occasions), lying under oath? You cannot accuse an entire party for the actions and moral failings of certain individuals. Do you remember that for years the Democrats were the party that supported black slavery and opposed black civil rights? As for Strom and Pearce, openly avowed neo-Nazis and white supremacists, they clearly cannot be linked to any mainstream political party. The bottom line: you cannot engage in such sweeping generalizations and hope to claim or maintain any intellectual integrity.

Who is the party that is claiming the moral high ground? I presume you heard about the guy that was charged, by the Decider, with stamping out world wide prostitution? What did he just get caught doing? Hypocrite, I'd say. It sounds like you voted Republican. Did you? The Republicans are the ones going around kissing the ass of phony religious people like Pat Robertson, James Dobson and Jerry Falwell.

Glad you asked, David. Let me clarify, I have disdain only for Republican gays-- and, at that, only the ones who go about trying to harm the lives of other gays while hiding in the closet, making believe they are straight while promoting their party's deadly and divisive homophobic agenda. Is that too difficult to understand?

This is a blog, screeds are fine here. And, it is the hypocracy, not the use of prostitutes. When Bill Clinton was impeached, the Dems condemned him as well. But, the GOP comes back with retorts that I often heard from my teen aged kids....."Everyone else is doing it!!!"

It is going out on a huge limb to say anyone here would excuse Democratic corruption or hypocracy. Anyone who says so, knows very little about content here.

This regime is about greed and incompetence. Along with Cheney's delusions. The goal of which in all cases is no accountability.
