Alabama AG Troy King In Gay Scandal

Looks like another GOP anti-gay politician gets caught in a gay tryst. I never tire of these hypocrites getting their comeuppance!

The Locust Fork Journal is NOT a particularly reliable source of information. It's no more than a blog trying to act like a newspaper to push extreme left wing views. This doesn't mean it's wrong necessarily but it's highly unlikely to be credible. To put it in perspective, the owner's a left wing Drudge wannabe with .000000001% of Drudge's readership and makes Drudge look like a centrist.

There's not a word of this in any of the AL papers. Also, if there really are rumors flying around regarding this in the legal community, I would almost certainly know through contacts with family and friends who are lawyers and lobbyists.

For the moment, I'll treat this like the latest UFO story in the check in line.

So far the story's not showing up in the mainstream wire services but if it does, whooooo-hoooooooo!

Like that preacher, Ted Haggard? "Ohh, yeah, I smoked meth with the guy, he's a gay prostitute, we got naked, but it was only a massage and I'm not a homo."

I'm not a GOP apologist, however just because we have this rash of incidents doesn't mean Repub's are gay hypocrites. I'm sure there are closet gay hypocrite Democrats as well. However I have to say with the few incidents I have heard of it kinda puts a stereo type on an affiliation or group. The media blitz nowadays doesn't help matters either.

If you want to see a really funny take on this, check Loretta Nall's latest blog entry. FYI, she organized a drive to send sex toys to Troy King last year protesting him trying to get the legislature to tighten up laws around them. She got it started with an inflatable pig "toy".

http://nallforgovernor.blogspot.com/

The "I'm Troy King and I'll blow" parody song to the the tune of "King of the Road" is actually pretty funny.

For those who don't remember Loretta from the hottest candidates thread a while back, she is the MJ party founder, write in Libertarian candidate for governeor, general entertaining whacko from AL.

You know something, it's amazing the unsubstantiated vitriol that's allowed to stand here against a conservative but when I started a thread criticizing Andrew Young for racist comments he made(substantiated ones btw) the entire thread was deleted because it wasn't PC and some users felt that I was being a racist by pointing out his racism.

As for those who would suggest that I should SD this thread, that's not the answer. I believe in an open exchange of what we'll only loosely call "ideas" in this case and all others without a one sided definition of what is and is not PC censoring the dialog.

I'm getting long winded here but the main point is, please hold up a mirror. Ask yourself what your reaction would be if it was Drudge or O'Reilly smearing somebody you like with no apparent basis in fact. I can assure you that the local MSM here would love to toast King and their deafening silence on this is a very good indication that there probably is no substance to the story.

Note that I could be wrong, he could be "guilty". This really isn't relevant. Personally it wouldn't break my heart to see him gone as his positions on a few things are offensive to me.

As for hypocrite gay politicians, many here are conveniently forgetting McGreevey for example - he took it a step farther in fact and made poor decisions pertaining to his job directly related to his sexuality as well, i.e. appointing his boyfriend to a post he was unqualified for.

Satirically comparing the RNC to a gay bar is hardly vitriol. This is politics, not high tea at Buckingham Palace.

Apparent being the operative word here. The blog story cites several sources...it's impossible to say whether they're reliable or not. The fact that the governor's office -- and the attorney general's office, for that matter -- did not return multiple phone calls does raise some questions.

What about McGreevey? He ultimately went public. I'd be more worried about Ken Melhman and his ilk...

Appointing one's significant other to a post they're unqualified for. Is that news? Hell, nepotism comes as naturally to politicians as lying...just ask Paul Wolfowitz.

No no, that's just the point. The Dems don't run around claiming that homosexuals are the cause of all the country's ills and that it should be illegal/caning/stoning/whipping, etc.

There are gay Democrats and they are quite open about it.

There's nothing inherently wrong with taking the story at face value.

Time will tell. The blogosphere does tend to have a strong self-correcting mechanism built in.

If (If) the allegations are true, Mr. King won't be the first and certainly won't be the last public figure to rail against gays from the rostrum while secretly stashing an autographed Barbra Streisand boxed set of CDs in his boudoir.

btw, I just got back from dinner with some friends including a senior partner from the largest law firm in AL. They are VERY well connected in Montgomery and he was well aware of the rumor and would really like for it to be true. He is also more sceptical about it than I am -gives it less than 10% chance of being true. It's not over yet but it seems like a good bet that we're going to bend the needle on the BS-o-meter.

Bush cheerleaders on this board will be shocked to hear this, but: I did some research on this subject. Apparently, Alabama had an attorney general named Troy King. He resigned but had once thought of running for governer. He was not very popular, anyway in reading posts of people from Alabama. He is also married to a woman.

Nothing in any site I read said anything about him actually doing the deed with another man. He looks like a bottom to me. Also, he looks like the type that would fight tooth and nail for any anti-gay legislation, including sodomy laws, but still meet another man in a dark and seedy motel or truck stop bathroom.

And the media on the right thinks gays will destroy marrige.

I read on multiple sites that said he resigned is why I believed he resigned. If he has not, I apologize.

Still, you are right about one thing:

Quoting BHMBAGLOCK (Reply 36):

However, IF (I don't belive he did, but if) he was caught fooling around with another guy, this "man" should resign and be shamed. As a gay man, it sickens me when these posers come along saying how horrible homosexual acts are, how sick homosexuals are as they stand up with their wives, then, get caught doing the dirty with someone he just met in some nasty dirty bathroom.

What two (or more) consenting adults do in the privacy of their own home is their business. But, when hypocrites start screaming at the top of their lungs about sickness, those are the ones that need to be knocked down a few notches.
