    We saw wall to wall coverage and day after day of ranting and raving by the media about Anthony Weiner, as media "journalists" demanded that Weiner resign.

    Yet this MORE despicable and hypocritical scandal by Repub pol Phillip Hinkle has scarcely been covered at all - and we hear no demands for his resignation.

    WTF?!

    We constantly hear the right-wingers whine about the "liberal media"?
    We don't have a liberal media.
    We have a right-leaning media that is THOROUGHLY UNFAIR AND INCOMPETENT.

    Someone will find a way to spin this and say Hinkle was tempted by the gay devil. He will repent and make it look like it's the gay communities fault.

    vincent7 saidSomeone will find a way to spin this and say Hinkle was tempted by the gay devil. He will repent and make it look like it's the gay communities fault.




    He's already trying to blame the victim.
    Hinkle has claimed that he's just the victim of a "shakedown" - even though there are multiple emails from his email account and his phone to the victim proving that Hinkle offered the boy money for sex.

    Hinkle committed a CRIME.
    He offered to pay an 18 year old boy for sex.
    Hinkle's wife tried to BRIBE the boy by offering him $10,000.00 to try to shut him up.
    Bribery - ANOTHER CRIME.

    Yet this story just slips right on by and the Repub pol gets a pass from the media.

    Weiner sent naughty pics online - which is not illegal - and he's forced to resign.
    Hinkle picked up an 18 year old male prostitute online - which is illegal -and he gets a pass.

    THERE'S SOMETHING FUCKING WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE

    BTW - I'm pissed at Hinkle and the double standard - not you.

    He'll get reelected just like Vitter.icon_mad.gif
    Has Fox News even aired this yet? Better yet, anybody living in Indiana with access to local Fox stations?

    Vitter was indeed reelected -- he's thriving with Republicans last I heard. This sexual deviant and law-breaker with a diaper fetish is just fine with Republicans. It's only us gays and Democrats they think are criminals. Ask the right-wingers right here on RJ.

    Not only is he an asshole, but he's a cheap asshole.
    Only $80? He should be ashamed of himself! The cheap fuck.
