Another Shamed Republican! Tennessee Senator Resigns Over Affair

| Filed under: Politik

ap-stanley.jpg

Tennessee lawmaker Paul Stanley is resigning from the state Senate after an affair with a 22-year-old intern, McKensie Morrison, was revealed.

The Republican Senator wrote in his resignation letter, "Due to recent events, I have decided to focus my full attention on my family and resign my Senate seat effective August 10."

The married 47-year-old father of two admitted to the affair after the intern's boyfriend, Joel Watts, attempted to extort $10,000 from Stanley to prevent the release of damning photos.

Stanley's legislative proposals were mostly of the business matter, but, not surprisingly, he also tried to ban gay couples from adopting and cut funding for Planned Parenthood because he believes unmarried folks should not be having sex.

What about married folks having sex with people who aren't their spouses?

    Another hypocrite Republican!!!!!!! Americans will never learn, unfortunately…….not that the Dems are saints, not by a long shot……but it certainly speaks volumes about the lunatic agenda the Repubs stand behind.

    Not even they believe their own B.S!!!!!!!!



  10. 10

    He's gross, the whole thing was probably a blackmail attempt from the get go.
    How else does the douche BF have photos?



  11. 11

    If that is in deed true, then he is truly, truly deceitful



  12. 12

    What is the deal with affairs? Keep your legs closed to married people! PERIOD



  13. 13

    You have to stay away from girls in their 20's especially if you are MARRIED and much older. That sounds like EXTORTION and the boyfriend my go to jail on this one. I hope Jon G is reading your blog. He seems to ONLY lay with gals in their 20's and he is STILL



  14. 14

    Boyfriend committed extortion and got no money but ruined old horny butt's career and maybe his marriage too. Jon Gossilin should read this blog. He seems to only lay with gals in their 20's also and is still legally married also.



  15. 15

    My father was a writer. You would've liked him. He used to say that artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up.



  16. 16

    some 22 year hold was hitting THAT? ick…and oh yea, he's a total hypocrit!



  17. 17

    I like money and power as much as anyone else, but not to a degree that I would fuck middle aged republican. Where are the attractive young girls with good sense these days?



  18. 18

    Are we going to discuss the MANY MANY MANY MANY shamed Democrats? Funny that you don't discuss their scandals. But that's right, you are a moron with an agenda.



  19. 19

    Rofl as if Democrats aren't doing the same disgusting, unethical things. Dems are just better at not getting caught and less likely to admit that they've done something wrong.

    Personally I'm more concerned about the fact that none of our senators, Democrat OR Republican, have bothered to read this crap ass healthcare bill that Obama is trying to cram down our throats, but I suppose this will do as a distraction for CNN to "report" for the next two weeks.



  20. 20

    perez is a bigger hypocrit than this guy.



  21. 21

    Republicans are sure digging themselves a hole. What a hypocrit. I don't know who is worse: the senator or the tramp that slept with him.



  22. 22

    Okay, Perez… not only Republicans cheat on their wives. ALL politicians do, INCLUDING DEMOCRATS. Get a life.



  23. 23

    ROTFLMAO!

    So where was your headline when a bunch of new jersey democrats were arrested last week? you are such a hypocritical asshole.

    ANOTHER HYPOCRITICAL REPUBLICAN.

    WOW, WHAT A SHOCKER.



  27. 27

    I'm beginning to realize that ALL politicians are corrupt.
    Also, I hate made-up, bimbo names like McKensie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  28. 28

    …no one likes a perv closet case. How 'hard' is it to have self respect, admit to what you are and don't be a sneaky fucker?



  29. 29

    SCUUUMBAGG
    once again, never trust politicians



  30. 30

    He said young people should not have sex before marriage. I'm taking the "young people" reference to mean teens and early twenties. Certainly, it's a hypocritical statement in that he was having the affair with a 22 year old, but he didn't say all unmarried folks should not have sex. Perez, once again, you distort the truth, even when it's not necessary.



  31. 31

    Way to have a valid point, Perez. I'm proud of you!



  32. 32

    Well, can't he just go to C street to fix it?
    .
    Those repubes are always pointing fingers!



  33. 33

    Re: karencarpenter – 28 Looks like "hard" is the problem here! Not your typical impotent repube! LOL!

    This is a disturbing trend lately from the 'holier than thou' party… bunch of hypocrites!



  36. 36

    where's the celebrity…..slow day mario?



  37. 37

    still waitin' on my fucken rob post……asshole……



  38. 38

    Shut the fuck up, Mario.



  39. 39

    If he's doing a good job, then who cares. JFK and Bill Clinton both screwed around and kept their jobs.



  40. 40

    What exactly does the fact that he's a republican have to do with the fact that he's a pig? Do you really think democrats don't have their fair share of dirty little secrets, because news flash they do like good ol Bill. Why must everyone drive a wedge into every singe polical news story? United we stand, divided we fall you idiots. We NEED both parties. It's proven that when the houses are all republican it's bad and when they are all democratic it's even worse. They need each other to keep balance. I feel sorry for all the young impressionable people that read this crap and think one party or the other is the enemy because it's only bringing our country to her knees, wake up and read your history books people. Without republicans this country wouldn't exist and without democrats a lot of civil issues wouldn't even be looked at. hmm, what's worse no civil rights or no country to fight for? I choose both parties looking at each individual and choosing who's the best to represent me by thier views not their label. Oh, and if you really wanted equality why make the comment on married people cheating? What? Gay people don't cheat? Give me a break you are reaching now.

    Another holier than thou Republican outed to America as they hypocrite they all are. I'm loving it!!!



  42. 42

    Hipocrites, hipocrites, hipocrites!
    No surprise here that Republican's are a bunch of hipocritical douchebags!



  43. 43

    He looks much older without his make-up. He'd better be more careful with his love gun.



  44. 44

    HAHAHA!! It's funny that all these law makers who are trying to tell us how we should be sexually are so sexually "immoral." I really couldn't care less that the guy had an affair, but when he stands up in public and condemns people for their sexuality and for having premarital sex (what is this, the 50's??) I think he deserves th ebacklash he will receive.



  45. 45

    Re: ladycat – B/c Republican's ARE pig's. ANd the thing is darling, Democrat's don't go around judging and putting other people down. So for pompuous ass Republican who is gonna be a fucking pig, hell yeah air that fucking dirty ass laundry. Expose the skidmark for what it really is, sweetum's.



  46. 46

    Re: Mercine – Well, JFK and Clinton didn't go around condemning other's for sinful action's now, did they?

  47. LEAH. says – reply to this


    47

    LOL @ the idea of only republicans being dirty perverts and having affairs

    politicians have been doing it for years, including members of your precious democratic party. the democratic party that…still as a whole doesn't support gay marriage? am I right or am I right? i don't know where gay people got the idea that the democrats are for them…they're not. Some are, but so are some republicans.

    and as somebody else said, um *cough* JFK and Clinton *cough*?? At least this guy has the dignity to resign, not lie directly to the american people about sleeping with chubby interns.



  48. 48

    Perez…why is it JUST Republicans…truth is…all men are scum!! Please post a story on Pennsylvania's Governor DEMOCRAT Ed Rendell and his sex scandal with Eliot Spitzers SAME prostitute! Then I won't hate you anymore…



  49. 49

    His girlfriend was an unmarried person. Having sex with him. Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…



  50. 50

    Re: BOOMBOOMPOWrez – Hey hey hey!! LOL how's it going love?! Keep kickin ass bud, ur hot!!



  51. 51

    Had the intern become pregnant you know he would have sent her directly to Planned Parenthood. I'm so tired of Republicans trying to tear down a group that allows women of limited means to care for their bodies.



  52. 52

    … and they say gays getting married with destroy the institution of marriage…



  53. 53

    Google her. Any man who doesn't want to tap her doesn't have a dick. I could use some myself. And remember, it all started at chapaquitick. It takes talent to lead the way.



  54. 54

    um hi. remember bill clinton? your past president? who had an affair and then LIED UNDER OATH? did he resign? nah. but he's a democrat, so no one cares.

    and as for his legislation, he has to do what his constituents want him to do. so if the people voting for him in tennessee are homophobic, guess what he's gonna do.

    perez, stop writing political posts. you're supposed to do celebrity gossip.



  55. 55

    Who cares… everyone cheats.. married and not married. i am sure you are used to that Perez!



  56. 56

    Re: ladycat

    It's called being a hypocrite. Look it up. www.dictionary.com

    Sure, dems do it (practically everyone in power does)…but not while espousing family values and all that other garbage (the Do As I Say Not As I Do).



  57. 57

    Didn't see the Perez article about the 44 Democrats in New Jersey arrested for corruption, racketeering, selling body parts, etc….

    I guess all 44 corrupt DEMOCRATS are 100% faithful to their spouses, but 100% CRIMINAL to their country and constituents.



  58. 58

    Yes we KNOW that Republicans AND Democrates cheat. People do this though it's wrong-duh. HOWEVER!!! It's ALWAYS the Republicans that think they are sooo above wrong and everyone else that condemn OUTWARDLY about gay rights and sex OUT of marriage and can't even back that up with their own action Palin anyone? You know something more recent than Kennedy-who was KILLED by a non-Democrate (Republican politicans also tend to be closet gays).
    For the record-Clinton did not boink Monica. She helped relieve his stress…and the country was in a lot better shape than the 8 years after!!!



  59. 59

    This guy is a total hypocrite babbling on and on about family values while fucking a 22 year old. Naturally, his republican buddies are making excuses for him. What a bunch of twats.



  60. 60

    When will you Republicans Learn!!

    Get Rid of the Self-Righteous Stand that your Party Loves So Much!!

    Sarah Palin your new Saviour puts the "arse" in American so Well!



  61. 61

    For all of you going on and on about how democrats get caught too. Yeah, they do…..HOWEVER, this is about a man whose political platform was FAMILY VALUES and he got caught fucking an intern. I would think it was funny no matter what political party….as long as the person who got caught was peddling all that conservative family values bullshit.



  62. 62

    Wow, another fucking Republican hypocrite! What a shock! Gees with a 22 year old? Yuck…….



  63. 63

    YUCK. I can't imagine what the allure was. His wife is probably happy about it, because now she can divorce him and doesn't have to have sex with his ugly ass anymore. I bet he is a pee-wee quick shot too.



  64. 64

    so what now - did he feel left out ??



  65. 65

    I actually knew this girl. We had a biology class together at APSU in 2007. I can say I'm not surprised by this, at all. She's got quite the history.



  66. 66

    Too funy democrats don't judge. Look at Clinton. He was our President! Geez even perez shoud know better that a cheater is a cheater. Ingeneral Republicans feel others can bury themsemves they don't need to step in and destroy someone for being immoral. Everyone makes mistakes. These stories should be kept a bit more private for the sake of families. I am sorry for all those that JUDGE republicans.



  67. 67

    That's disgusting.



  68. 68

    you mean YET ANOTHER repuke who is trying to preserve "the sanctity of marriage" by denying homosexual American's their rights was caught pissing on his own wife, family and marriage? no…I don't believe it. disgusting pigs…the whole lot of them.



  69. 69

    What's with these horny Republicans? They sure crave the young flesh.



  70. 70

    Got 'em…..



  71. 71

    You liberal parasite, why don't you take about all of the scandalous Democrats? Or how that Hispanic fat ass Obama is appointing as a Supreme Court Justice got humiliated by being RACIST towards WHITE people? Hey you should post about how Obamas ratings are starting to suck wind. Democrats enjoy that ride on your sinking ship!



  72. 72

    you know what's sad..any corrupt politician news doesn't surprise me anymore.



  73. 73

    Was she in on it.
    I mean maybe they planned it.
    She started the affair and the pics
    were held as blackmail. Otherwise
    why would a 22 year old be attracted
    to this old mess.



  74. 74

    Re: BeautifulBrunnette69 – Whassup! You're are even HOTTER. I can't wait till I can get my own pics up on the computer. I feel like a looser w/o my own personal pic for my profile. Hopefully soon!

    HAHAH you go ahead and say here is another shamed republican.. well perez you dumbass look at our FAILING DEMOCRAT president that all you idiots voted for. hahahah I am just so glad people can start saying LETS JUST BLAME OBAMA. NOBAMA. :) Its great that you point out peoples flaws because everyone sees you and thinks how pathetic can a human get.. perez sure wants to find out !



  78. 78

    All these southern conservative republican immoral hypocrites are really the most disgusting human beings on this planet and you can only imagine the garbage that votes for these hypocritical taliban scumbags. Don't vote republican people and don't spend money in red state cesspools if you can help it ,mainly the south,Utah,Kansas,Idaho and of course the main sewer Texas. The repubican south is the most homophobic,anti-choice trash in the country.



  79. 79

    Re: Renfamous – Well we sure know that Fox republican propaganda for white trash news won't cover it will they. And the reason that it's more nauseating is most of these scumbags that cheat on their wives with young interns are southern republicans and because this trailer trash swine are the ones always puting down other people for being immoral,and usually their targets are people born gay,a woman wanting a simple medical procedure or people simply disagreeing with them. Nothing makes me more sick than your typical immoral republican trash with their fake posturing on morality. To me morality is something like govt wanting to cover all people with medial coverage like the rest of the western world. That's real morality and christianity,but funny something opposed by most of the conservative trash in red state america ironicaly these happen to be the poorer states which would benefit from Obama's plan.



  80. 80

    Re: Vintage7787 – You crack me up ,most liberal states are fcking rich,the poorest least productive states are all republican dirt poor shit holes with uneducated bigoted slime like you living there. You people make me sick.

    Where are people's morals today. Both the politician and his slutty intern are at fault.



  82. 82

    I'll never support a Paul Stanley solo career even as a US Senator, unless he is in full KISS makeup. We should be outraged, America. Who cares if he is effing the 22 year old intern? Maybe she saw "KISS vs the Phantom" on TBS and got obsessed.



  83. 83

    Where are the attractive young girls with good sense these days? Re: kahn_artist

    Well they aren't S-o-c-i-a-l-i-s-t Democraps that's for sure.

  85. 85

    First off, ew don't use AP Images they're mean and let me go because of the economy =( Secondly, can't we say that all republicans are shamed? Not just "another" one? Come on Perez, let's be realistic with the people.



  86. 86

    Yeah, GOP rule: Marriage is between a man and a woman, and his mistress, and whomever and whatever else is willing…. Especially f they wrote their own vows and forgot the "forsaking all others" clause……However,I wonder if this guy was set up and was scammed..Wouldn't most boyfriends be satisfied with a chance to clock the guy? TSK TSK , this senator was set up, my call.
