Puerto Rican State Senator Roberto Arango is, of course, a Republican, which means he has to be anti-gay. Arango is so anti-gay and so disgusted by the acts of gays that he has to put his photographs up on gay site for gay dudes. How Republican of him. Gawker keeps on saying he's a Puerto Rican Anthony Weiner. No. Weiner is a Democrat - meaning he was sending his pics to adult females.
My Spanish is pretty awful. However in the video above, Arango says he can neither confirm nor deny that the pictures are of him because he's been documenting his weight loss and posting them on Facebook. He says he can't remember but wishes he could. Then he suggests that maybe the photos are of the Governor (who's in his party) or other political opponents. He basically flame throws (intentional pun) anyone he can think of instead of coming clean about his extra curricular activities. He does what Weiner did and thinks he's charming enough that if he just engages the media he can talk his way out of this.
Como se dice "checking into rehab soon?"
Here's the kicker: if these pictures were just of full frontal that happened to appear on a gay site - he could possibly survive politically. Sure. Documenting weight loss. It could happen. But that wasn't ALL the pictures that (ahem) ended up on the gay app. After the break, NSFW even though it's blurred.
I write for Fast Company, The Atlantic, Mother Jones and LA Weekly among many (many) others. My weekly column is syndicated in these things called "newspapers," which are analog blogs 80-year-olds seem to enjoy.
Cornel Rasor, who chairs the Idaho Republican Party's resolutions committee, says that he pushed for a resolution to void all local ordinances banning discrimination against LGBT people because he wants to be able to fire any gay man who "comes into work in a tutu."
