A "non-partisan" gay political sex scandal?
...guess which party
Yet another sex scandal for another gay politician. And since his party isn't mentioned in the story, can you guess which party he's in?
Three guesses, and the last two don't count.
PORTLAND, Ore. - More than a year after denying it, the newly elected mayor of Portland has admitted having a sexual relationship with a male teenager in 2005.
Sam Adams, who is openly gay, acknowledged the relationship in a statement Monday, after the Willamette Week newspaper broke the story on its Web site. ...
Adams, 45, said he and the teen were together in the summer of 2005, shortly after the teenager turned 18 in June, and when Adams was a city commissioner. The revelations come nearly a year and a half after Adams and the teen said rumors of a sexual relationship between them were false.
"I lied at the time because I was afraid that people would believe untrue rumors being circulated by an undeclared mayoral opponent that I had broken a law involving sexual relations with a minor. But this is not a good excuse," Adams said in his statement.
In other words, I knew they wouldn't want to vote for me if they knew I was a law-breaking hypcrite.
Of course, the truth came out just in time to be buried in Obamapalooza.
His party affiliation not mentioned in the story: Democrat. Funny how the press has a hard time getting around to mentioning partisan affiliations when it comes to their brethren in the Democrat party.
