Today’s Bob Allen Creative Excuse Award goes to Washington State Representative Richard Curtis (R-La Center).
[Cody M.] Castagna told Spokane police that Curtis had agreed to pay him $1,000 for unprotected sex then stated he didn’t have the money, a claim Curtis denied to police, according to a police report.What did Representative Curtis claim he was doing?
Curtis, however, told the detective he gave Castagna $100 for gas money and insisted the money was not in exchange for sex, according to the affidavit. Curtis did tell police he met Castagna at the Hollywood Erotic Boutique earlier that day, according to the affidavit.
Next time I run out of gas in front of a sex shop I hope there’s a Republican legislator nearby who’s handing out Franklins to random strangers who’re in need of a fill-up.
What kind of a guy is Rep. Curtis?
In 2005 and 2006, Curtis voted against a bill that granted civil rights protections to gays and lesbians, and in 2007, he voted against a bill that created domestic partnerships for same-sex couples.
All kinds of gory details (and the quotes presented here) are found in this story from The Daily News in Longview, Washington.
