The Richard and Cody Affair

Richard Curtis and his boytoy Cody Castagna

If you think Filipino politicians are pain-in-the-neck, wait til you hear about Richard Curtis, the controversial Washington state representative who voted against same sex domestic partnerships and anti-discrimination laws.

In 2007, he was caught by the police having sex with a male prostitute, Cody Castagna whom he met in an adult bookstore. And photos of Curtis in female underwear began to surface.

Curtis eventually resigned from the office.

i know there was a serious debate in intellectual circles in the 1990s about "outing" right-wing closet public officials and it seemed like it leaned towards "not okay." However, when public officials actively oppose parity in the law for LGBTs or actively support campaigns to deprive LGBT of rights or establish discriminatory schemes, i think they themselves make their homosexuality an issue (and if they commit a crime which exposes it, even more so).
