On Tuesday, we brought you the story of Republican Rod Jetton's arrest for beating his mistress unconscious during sex. On Wednesday, TPM unearthed an op-ed Jetton wrote a couple of years ago and surprise, surprise - he refers to gay sex "deviate sexual intercourse:"

Rod Jetton, the former Missouri House Speaker, fired a state lawmaker from his committee chairmanship in 2007 because the lawmaker had changed a bill in order to end a state ban on gay sex -- or what Jetton called "deviate sexual intercourse."

In a 2007 op-ed he wrote for the Southeast Missourian newspaper, Jetton explained why he had recently removed Rep. Scott Lipke, a fellow Republican, as chair of the Committee on Crime Prevention and Public Safety. Lipke, he wrote, had sponsored and handled a bill to protect children from sexual predators, which Jetton supported.

But, wrote Jetton:

Lipke chose to use the bill to delete 14 words from our laws in order to repeal the gay sex ban in Missouri.

Thanks to that deletion, it is now legal to engage in deviate sexual intercourse with someone of the same sex here in Missouri. This law had been on our books for decades. Read one...

These people are unbelievable. So in Rod's mind, he can push a woman beyond her boundaries by beating the crap out of her during sex, and that's perfectly acceptable -- but if two men wish to make love...now THAT is deviate behavior. It is becoming clear why this guy was a rising star in the Republican Party.
