A certain lil' congressman allegedly likes his trade rough

Lil' Patrick McHenry isn't a character in Comedy Central's brilliant Lil' Bush, which features Lil' Cheney, Lil' Rummy, Lil' Condi, Lil' Tony Blair, Lil' Jeb, Lil' Hillary, Lil' Mikey Moore, Lil' Obama... but not Lil' Lil' Patrick McHenry. He's too... lil'! But he may be about to get a lot bigger, at least in terms of the traditional media that has made Larry Craig a household name-- and soon. DWT readers already know that the North Carolina arch-conservative (other than 3 nut-case freshmen, McHenry's got the most reactionary voting record in Congress) is allegedly another hypocritical closet queen waiting nervously for his moment on the national stage.

And yesterday BlueNC gave Rep. McHenry's closet door a nice, loud jolt. In a scandal that will prove to be far bigger than South Park's outing of Tom Cruise (covered in great depth and detail by Wikipedia), it looks like there is a connection between McHenry and a murderous Republican homosexual love triangle/escort service.

The murdered gay Republicans include Ralph Reed's purported ex-lover, Ralph Gonzalez (former head of the rabidly homophobic Georgia Republican Party), David Abrami and McHenry guy-pal Robert Drake, the shooter. All three were found last week in a murder-suicide in an Orlando apartment. According to right-wing website, the North Carolina Conservative "All three men were active in Republican politics." They mention that Drake is "an associate" of McHenry's but don't define that. He is alleged to be an associate of quite a few younger men, some of whom are gay and some of whom are just gay-for-pay. (Note: The websites in this GOP report are graphic, pornographic gay prostitute sites and if you don't want to see that kind of stuff DO NOT copy and paste the links. They are purposely not in the form of links.)
Gonzalez was an influential political consultant, who owned Strategum Group, and managed Congressman Tom Feeny’s 2002 campaign. The house was owned by Gonzalez; Abrami lived with Gonzalez. Newspapers and political websites have been abuzz with posts from friends and associates of Gonzalez, who speculate the motive for the murder-suicide as being a gay love triangle gone wrong.

...Another, more sinister motive has been put forth by several sources, including Reporters there say that Drake was associated with the owner of a gay escort service in the Virginia Beach area. The owners of that escort service are facing charges that they murdered the owner of a rival company catering to the gay community. A source for the Crime Blog reporter states:

“My solid, but unconfirmed, sources say that Drake was trying to hit Gonzalez up for cash to raise money to defend a kid (Harlow Cuadra) who is on trial for murder up in Pennsylvania. The 26 year old “kid” ran a gay escort and porn business in Virginia Beach and may have had several Republican clients–Drake being one. (See and . . My sources say Drake may have approached Gonzalez for funds for Cuadra’s defense, threatening to blow the lid off everything by MAKING THE REPUBLICAN CLIENT LIST OF THE GAY ESCORT BUSINESS PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE.”

More sordid GOP details are available. Meanwhile there are jailed Republicans, dead Republicans, outed Republicans... And McHenry's office... well, the press secretary is on vacation so they have no comment. I couldn't get them to put me on the phone with Lil' Congressman McHenry. Maybe he was making preparations for the Republican National Convention.

Wait a minute, wait a minute. Are you saying that Patrick McHenry, the biggest piece of shit on Capital Hill, is actually a CLOSETED QUEEN? That he is a SELF-HATING MAN LOVER?

OH, if this were only true!! McHenry is a toad of the very most scabrous and nauseating type.

This is what I have been waiting for. The outing of Sen. Craig may have been timed to overshadow this event.

The one thing that makes no sense is why Drake would murder at that point, if his alleged motives are correct. If he had this list he certainly could have continued to use the threat of disclosure to get the cash he needed.

It would seem to be more likely that Gonzalez communicated with someone, either as a warning or in order to get the money Drake demanded, and that person decided to solve the problem.

As you go further and further into the different diary links, you find more and more republicans involved.

Patrick McHenry, Tom Feeny, Jack Abrahmoff, Underage Gay Porn, Gay Prostitutes, Client List, MURDER?

Let's not forget all the good work Rep. McHenry's done with his Servicing A Member Program The many young strapping GOPpies who've participated seemed to have enjoyed it, especially the overnight sleepovers at McHenry's house. One liked it so much, he underwent a seven hour daily commute so he could continue to sleepover at McHenry's while he attended law school.

Here in the NC high country the lil' scumbag supposedly represents, we have suspected this waste of oxygen of being a closet queen. The NC ALE (Alcohol Law Enforcement) is investigating charges of underage drinking at his victory party after his election. His election is very suspicious. Young republicans were bussed in from other districts not as closely contested to work at polling places here. Such corrupt individuals. Shame on us for allowing this scum to be in office.

This stuff is amazing. Even my cynical mind is blown away by the extreme insanity emerging from the conservative movement in regards to homosexual hatred and hypocrisy.

Even though he was not a national figure I'd hate for folks to forget about good ol' Spokane, WA mayor Jim West who was busted for soliciting young men online while setting anti-gay policies in public.

Is there a complete list of these scoundrels anywhere?

Ted Haggar
Jim West (R-Spokane mayor)
Mark Foley
Larry Craig
Jeff Gannon
Patrick McHenry

... I'm sure there's more and would love help compiling the list if anyone cares to help.

Thanks. And great reporting on these subjects "DownWithTyranny".

They are all over Washington DC. Larry Craig was in the club. The crazy part of this story is the analysis of the talking heads. I believe they're way off the mark. Larry Craig isn't ashamed of being gay. He is greedy, he is evil and most likely diagnosable as a psychopath. He loved being part of the club. All the perks... travel, great salary, pension, best health care plan on the planet, access to the pages. It's such a long list, there's not enough time in the day to go through it. These guys don't mind throwing people under the bus for their own personal gain. In fact, I would imagine they enjoyed it. Craig's voting record is just one example of this. He's a bad, bad, nasty, naughty boy. How disgusting where those words coming out of his mouth about Bill Clinton. What the fuck man. Really, you couldn't write this stuff. This is crazy shit. Larry Craig didn't give a flying fuck about the family values crowd period the end. In order for these crazy assholes to get the keys to the white house front door, they had to throw red meat to the 23%ers to get them into their voting block. And throw it they did. Clearly, without the family values crowd there was no access for them. They are PREDATORS, the worse of the worst. Rat Bastards.

DO NOT overlook the election fraud aspect of the history of these political operatives and their connections.

Is this focus a smoke screen? Is this why someone leaked the Craig story?

Georgia 2002 and Diebold illegal patches, the Curtis testimony, stealing Florida 2000 and the White House, illegal voter purging, felonious voter caging, Tom Feeney, Ralph Reed, Jack Abramoff, Katherine Harris, Roger Stone, Dick Morris, Craig Snyder .....

I am the last gay reporter to have talked with murder defendant Harlow Cuadra the day before his arrest 5/14/07. Cuadra and his partner Joe Kerekes ran the Virginia escort service Norfolk Companions. In my hour and a quarter interview with Cuadra, Joe sometimes interjected some comments, including this one which in hindsight I find particularly intriguing:

"Damon your readers don't know who we service, we've got guys working the DC crowd including someone in that whitey house and the one who consults for him in Florida..."

I didn't use that quote back in May because my focus was only on Harlow Cuadra at the time, but in light of subsequent events it takes on major significance.

FACT: Norfolk Companions had up to 40 escorts working with them at various times, most of them very young, unsophisticated (18-22) Navy types recruited from the nearby naval base who wanted to make some quick and easy cash.

FACT: Many Washington politicos regularly visit the Norfolk, Virginia area in connection with the naval base.

FACT: Murder victim and Florida based Republican political consultant had a major Karl Rove connection. Karl Rove until recently was deputy White House chief of staff.

In my opinion, Gonzalez very likely was connected to Harlow and Joe via Jason Robert Drake, the ex-Marine shooter in his murder who offed himself after killing Gonzalez and his live-in "housemate". Drake did indeed try to obtain major funds for Cuadra's defense from Gonzalez based on actual or potential Norfolk Companions escort services rendered.

Even the most obdurate right winger, looking at these facts and connections, must admit there is something going on here that is much bigger, deeper and darker than anything we've been led to believe as the mainstream media shirk their duty in following up on this.

As I say on and the P.I. says on, this thing has BLACK OPS written all over it.

The ROLLING STONE article about BRENT CORRIGAN, the young gay model who is the nexus of the Cuadra-Kerekes murder case, in the September 7th edition may shed significant light in view of who contributed to the article on an attributed as well as deep background basis.

I wrote the BlueNC piece and never stated that Jason Robert Drake was a lover of Patrick McHenry. I have no evidence or information that he ever was. I do have sources that he worked for McHenry and that both of them have histories of political dirty tricks. McHenry is a Rove wannabe. McHenry has been tied to both Drake and Gonzalez professionally. And McHenry appears to be bisexual from all I can put together.

I'm suspicious that Drake is the murderer in this case. Why murder the people he supposedly wanted to extort money from? It makes no sense. I agree with the comment that this has BLACK OPS written all over it. I've heard from insiders that the lists of Republican clients were taken from the home before police arrived, that the crime scene had unofficial visitors. Notice that after they prematurely and unprofessionally called it a gay lovers triangle murder/suicide, they have now stopped saying anything except that there are so many conflicting stories "we may never know" the motive. Also an unprofessional attitude this early in the so-called investigation.

I think that research needs to be done on the entire story. Particularly these people's ties to faulty software, software to rig elections, Norfolk call-boy operations, and general control of the media coverage.

That McHenry is a closeted gay who speaks against gay rights for political gain is the tip of the iceberg and almost irrelevant at this point!

Please keep up on this story. There's a lot of scared sources out there that need to know that national attention will be paid if they decide to go on the record.

Is there a client list that you could ask the jailed gay escort guys? If so, all these pieces of crap would be exposed.

As for the stealing of elections stuff, if seems that patrick mchenry may have done it in the primary in 2004.

To some of the commentors here: Quit BLAMING the dominant Christian straight culture for these closeted Republican perverts, pedophiles and killers ... we did not create them.
They are a part of gay culture. They LOVE being in the closet and doing all the dirty things they do, sexually and politically. That is why they are smirking all the time. It's all a part of their little boymeat-loving lifestyle.
Great piece, btw. It just goes to show: no matter how paranoid you are, it's worse than you think.

You forgot that Congressman from Virginia Beach that was outed a year or two ago, who was buddies with Pat Robertson. He left office, too. And then there's California's congressman David Dreier, who is largely responsible for making Arnold Schwarzeneggar their governor. Dreier was outed a few years ago yet the media in California has refused to print a word about it.

Madam Curie,
You have to be kidding. Of course it was the dominant conservative Christian culture that created all these closet cases. They do not love being in the closet, deprived of acceptance for whom they are. They are driven to madness by a society that tells them they are evil from BIRTH. If you do not see this, you need to please open your eyes. You can not be told you are evil by 100% of society from birth without it making you nuts. Those of us who muster the courage to come out are far too few, and we are only able to do it if we are financially capable of doing so and are fortunate enough to have families that will not despise or reject us for being gay.

Madam Curie,

You're a dolt if you believe that. Being gay and raised catholic nearly drove me to such depths of madness as these freaks. You cannot imagine the self hatred a Christian upbringing can inflict on a gay man (yes, especially a man I think). After many suicide attempts I finally broke down and accepted myself. I suggest you educate yourself. It IS the christian culture, which is morbid and life and earth denying to its very core, which causes all this mess.

from the april 1999 article...

"Drake may indeed be a Marine's Marine. A previous posting was one of the Corps' most prestigious - the Corps oldest barracks at Eighth and I streets in Washington, D.C.

Marines posted there are handpicked for their service records, abilities and looks. Drake was part of the Silent Drill Team that is a crowd-pleaser at many events, a captain stationed in Washington said.

While in Washington, Drake was often photographed, earning him a ribbing from other soldiers."

Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


* Funeral escort for Marines and dignitaries.
* Ceremonial honor guard for state functions.
* Security Forces for Camp David and the White House.
* Parades
o Friday Evening Parade
o Tuesday Sunset Parade at the Iwo Jima Memorial
* Provide military correspondence courses for Marines and other services through the Marine Corps Institute.
* Training to maintain MOS proficiency and emergency preparedness.

The Marines assigned to the D.C. barracks must meet strict height and weight standards, since they perform in ceremonial parades, funerals and other ceremonies for Presidential and other National dignitaries. During the summer months, a Sunset Parade is held every Tuesday evening at the Marine Corps War Memorial in Rosslyn, Virginia, near Arlington National Cemetery. In addition, an Evening Parade takes place at the Barracks every Friday evening from late spring until the end of summer. Both Sunset and Evening Parades are open to the public.

Good story,

but I think your readers need to understand simple points:

1. Unlike gay liberals, there is no mambly pambly need to find "acceptance" and have a group hug.

2. They are not in the closet, they simply don't feel like sharing with you what size dildo they like. They live quite openly.

3. They are not hypocrites, they simply disagree with you on what is a "gay" right. Marriage is not guaranteed in the constitution for anyone.

4. They get to have power, money and sex. Jealous, much?

5. Most important - Woodward & Bernstein. They're still alive. Every criminal conspiracy can be taken down. Always follow the money.

@ Jeff:

Oh, for God's sake. Piles of closeted gay Republicans pretend to be happily married heterosexuals. Power is simply a more tempting option to them than satisfying sex.

And your point #3 is ludicrous, in that the constitution does protect the right to marry, which is why the civil rights movement was necessary -- to protect the EXISTING rights of people to marry regardless of race. Read up on the 9th Amendment, which states that a right doesn't have to be specified in the constitution to be protected.

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

This sordid mess with McHenry underscores his gutter consciousness, total incongruety, and beyond lack of integrity. His abysmal failure as a representive, unfortunately, is moreover an indictment of the pple of the
10th district who voted for him and who are equally unenlightened, uneducated, and easily snowed. As the candidate who opposed him in the general election in 2004, I interviewd with Ben Wells from the National Journal who did his best to expose McHenry for what he is; and the sheriff he defeated in the run-off primary knew things abt McHenry but would not use them in his campaign vs McHenry. I hope the pple of the 10th which is now 3 fewer counties are finally beyond fed up with this schizophrenic idiot and elect a an authentic stateswoman Rep. Patsy Keever.
