Another day, another sex scandal involving a god-fearing republican who just happened to be a key supporter of John McCain. That and the fact that this legislator had also co-sponsored bills on public sex is pretty much par for the course with these guys. In a tearful, blubbering performance at a press conference Allen vowed to fight this grave injustice to the bitter end.

As expected, once news of the McCain connection broke a minor regional story hit all the national media.

McCain's campaign, already on life support, looks about ready to expire at this point. Good riddance, too.

State Rep. Bob Allen, a co-chair of Republican presidential candidate John McCain's Florida campaign, is expected to address Thursday charges (.pdf of arrest) that he offered to perform oral sex on an undercover male police officer for $20.

Allen, who sponsored a failed bill that would have tightened the state's prohibition on public sex, scheduled a news conference at his lawyer's office to discuss Wednesday's arrest. A spokeswoman for Allen declined further comment.
