Anti-Gay Republican Rep Phillip Hinkle Refuses To Step Down After Craigslist Scandal

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

And what's more, he is refusing calls from the House Speaker, public and private, who is insisting that he resigned from his position.

Earlier this month, Indiana Rep. Phil Hinkle was caught offering a teenage boy $80 for sex after responding to a Craigslist ad online. Since then, Rep. Hinkle has been repeatedly asked to step down from his position. He is already being removed from several of his committees and chair positions and as he has offered no explanation or apology for his actions,his constituents want him gone.

However, it seems Finkle refuses to leave his post, insisting that he, not this young boy, was a victim of a crime, though of what crime we're not too sure. He is refusing to speak to House Speaker Brian Bosma, but he did offer his first public statement on the scandal, saying:

"I was on the road to self-destruction, and I don't know why….I say that emphatically. I'm not gay…I went to the edge, but I didn't fall over the edge."

That … is all crap and you know it!

This is not something that is just going to blow over, sir. You've REALLY stepped in it and you have very little options left open to you. We suggest accepting that not only is your political career over, but that you are in fact a man who has never really delved into his real feelings. Resign from office and go get to know yourself. Maybe you'll learn a little something about tolerance and self-acceptance along the way.

    Maybe Gays are witches, just like the women burned in Salem really were putting impure thoughts in the towns folks head. That explains it! *implied sarcasm*

    i don't understand Hilton…aren't you suppose to be rallying around this guy because he is gay

    I know the Perez bashers are going to bitch about his having a gay agenda or for this not truly being celebrity gossip, but guys like this need to be called out and I'm all for dragging out their news cycles so they can't quietly disappear.

    another repressed republican idiot…who hates and then is one himself…be free people…gay is ok…no need to hide and you would be happier just admiting who you are….this is what happens with conservatives…glad I am not a repressed conservative.

    He's not anti-gay, idiot. The kid was over 18, and set it up for shits and giggles. Yet had no problem showing up to take the money. Read the entire story before you pass judgement.

    Re: Enrico Palazzo – Agreed. And I find the term 'gay agenda' to be homophobic. The only 'agenda' is equality, and an end to discrimination. Simple.

    barney frank runs gay prositiution rings out of his apartment and they let him run fannie and freddie which caused the whole financial crisis by loaning people money who had no down payment and no ability to pay, but were the right color.

    so we know you dont really care about this stuff unless its a republican.

    you have no honesty and no shame.

    Re: understudy3 – Trading sex for $$$ is illegal;Gay or not gay, underage or not. Tell a judge it was for shits and giggles and see what happens. "Your honor I wasn't going to DO the DRUGS ,just wanted to buy them for shits and giggles. Either way you look at it he broke the law and should resign.

    Re: bobo99 – Bobo99, Barney Frank is a openly serving gay politician. Phillip Hinkle is a closeted GOP politician, who I might add has voted to strip away all gay rights in Indiana, and has openly spoken against and condemning homosexuals. This individual is not only a hypocrite, but he's trying to gloss over the fact that he is gay. No one goes to meet a same sex individual at a hotel for sex, and then claim they don't have homosexual tendencies. Come on, how stupid does he think we are! So, Perez Hilton, is merely pointing out these above points, and is only "criticizing" Phillip Hinkle because of his attempts to further repress homosexuals, hypocrisy towards homosexuality, and his voting record against any rights for homosexuals in the state of Indiana. This man deserves everything that is coming to him. I'm sure Perez would be in support of this man, If he readily admitted his faults and worked to help homosexuals. It's difficult to support someone who also hates you. So, you can't compare Barney Frank and Phillip Hinkle in this case. Just because they're politicians, they're situation and lives are apples to oranges. Phillip Hinkle needs to eat crow, and prove to us that he deserves our compassion, understanding and acceptance.

    I'm completely convinced that all these super-right-homophobes, like this one, bachman, especially her husband, are all Gayer than a 21 dollar bill. They are simply projecting something about themselves.

    Republicans are so freaking stupid. Get rid of the Bush Tax cuts for the rich and everything will be on the mend. It's not complicated. Can these people walk and chew gum at the same time? They just bash gays to get the bigot crowd. The Republican elite don't really give a crap about gays, it's all about money and power.



  14. 14

    Typical Republican.



  15. 15

    You should clarify that he is a rep for the state, not the country, Perez.

    Re: bobo99 – That's just the beginning of it. Then they supposedly leveraged and repacked those mortgages and resold them over and over all over the world.

    I'm from Indiana and he's a state disgrace … not because he likes dick, but because he won't support same-sex marriage … wonder if his wife will appear on OWN or Maury … "My Husband sucks dicks and RUINED my life." >>>>>. LMFAO … he's a pinch-faced, sad sack legislator on the back side of his career … let him writhe in peace >>>> LOL

    Re: buck – It's clear you don't understand

    Re: Dontbeasheeple – I agree with everything you just said, except: If this man were a Democrat, or was openly gay, Perez would claim this was all "no big deal", and that a mistake in his personal life shouldn't be cause him to step down from his position. Perez has a looong history of bias in favor of people who fit his own agenda.
