Exactly one week ago, I ran a strip pondering when the next GOP sex scandal would happen (see Hot Buttery GOP Action). Well, it didn't take long.

From the AP:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- A state lawmaker who has voted against gay rights resigned Wednesday, days after he was quoted in police reports as saying a man he had sex with after they met at an erotic video store was trying to blackmail him.

Rep. Richard Curtis, 48, said he was resigning immediately to spare his wife and children more public embarrassment. In a written statement, Curtis said, "Events that have recently come to light have hurt a lot of people. I sincerely apologize for any pain my actions may have caused."

Curtis, a Republican, told a newspaper in his southwest Washington district on Monday that sex was not involved in what he said was an extortion attempt. He also declared he was not gay.

But in police reports, Curtis said he was being extorted by a man he had sex with at a hotel room in Spokane, where Curtis was attending a GOP retreat. The other man, Cody Castagna, 26, contends Curtis reneged on a promise to pay $1,000 for sex.

CNN is reporting that the police report on this incident is Fifty pages long! That I must find. It will make great reading.

So where does that leave us? Well more proof that the GOP has suckered the Religious Right all this time. I wonder when they will wake up? The rest of us have our eyes open.

UPDATE: CNN's reporting of a 50 page police report was in error. Why am I not surprised? However the REAL 15 page police report can be downloaded HERE. A MUST READ!!!!

Stormy, please post a link to the police report when you find it--I'm sure we could all use a little titilation along with our schadenfreude...

Found the report. Click the link in the UPDATE!

Oh my GOD! This report makes Rocky Horror look like Captain Kangaroo.

"Add dick to the list"

Haw haw.

I think we need a category on this site just for Republican sex scandals. It'd be used more than "Book and reviews", that's for sure.

BTW, the dude Curtis is from Washington, not Oregon. But it's not that important.
