    Indiana GOP’s House Leader resigns after texting sexually explicit video of himself cheating on wife to everyone on his “Contacts” list

    The family-values friendly Jud McMillin claimed his phone was "stolen in Canada," but resigned in disgrace anyway

    "The controversial House Majority Leader in Indiana — he cosponsored the state’s “religious freedom” law — resigned suddenly on Tuesday after a sexually compromising video was sent to all of the people on his “Contacts” list"

    McMillin has styled himself as a champion of the religious right's crusade against marriage equality. His campaign website listed marriage discrimination as his top issue. "I will protect the integrity of the institution of marriage," the site read. "In southeastern Indiana the family has always been the foundation of our strength of community. Our relationships with our wives, husbands, parents, children, siblings and other loved ones provides the glue that binds our common purpose. In these times of turmoil the rest of the country could learn something from our example."

    We've seen this sort of hypocrisy many times. Not only is it not surprising, it has almost become expected, that many of these most enthusiastically anti-LGBT individuals, who use religious freedom and/or family values as a vector for condemning LGBT people, fail to live up to their own rhetoric.

    Apparently he has had to resign from other public offices for various indiscretions, both sexual and otherwise. What really does the "integrity of the institution of marriage" mean to this panderer?

    Yeah, and the Republicans in the Indiana House voted him to be their Majority Leader despite his having previously resigned a position for having an affair with one of the parties in a legal case he was prosecuting, and then lying about it and getting sued. And there's some very shady financial transactions involving him with his family.

    Well, Republicans think their shit don't stink, as the old crude phrase goes, until the public gets wind of it. But this is their "normal", the only way they know how to function. Integrity is not a word in the Republican operational manual.

    So he gets to just resign and walk away before even accepting a fair dose of public humiliation?

    Does he pay back what he's profited on his hypocritical morality or does he get to profit like Trump from his various bankruptcies?

    Typical Republican Behavior

    Integrity is not a word in the operational manual of either the republicans or the democrats. Both parties are corrupt and sleazy.

    Some blame has to adhere to the morons who elect these people.

    Just like the Duggar family, Kim Davis and many of the other loudmouths who are "Religious Freedom" fighters, if you peer into their bedrooms you'd find them no more wholesome than others. This isn't a republican thing (as Kim Davis is democrat). This is a bigot thing. These bigots are using religion to back up their hate speak. They only care about those who think the way they do. I'm so glad this guy videotaped it for the win.

    Here is more about this Christian Crusader...

    Actually, the infamous Ms. Davis has changed her affiliation to Republican.

    We might have missed bashing this one earlier.

    You know what they say: Better late than never.

    and PS, I just google-news'd this guy. He pretty much fucking disappears right after he resigns. Ne'er a critical word spoken publicly since.

    How fucked up is this, that this Gob Of Poop gets paid out of public coffers for five years, causes untallied destruction to community (how many Indiana gay children committed suicide during his abuses?) yet now luxuriates in anonymity having Trump-like declared moral bankruptcy.

    If there is a God, then also there is a special hell set aside for the GOP. Or maybe they reincarnate as worms where they get to spend their next lifetimes eating shit and fucking themselves.

    I think you meant to write "philanderer" instead of "panderer".

    My late mother was once the secretary of the speaker of the house of the state of Tennessee back in the early 1930s. She told stories of how many of the senators and representatives behaved and would not be at all surprised about what is happening now. Apparently things have not changed very much in the last 85 or so years.

    More GOPer bashing Artless? Trade your broad brush in for a more narrow one. And tell us about the integrity involved in racing your motorcycle around Seattle while drunk, if not smashing your leg up in the process, while you're at it. Or, was it your brain that took the hit? And, why so late in bringing this rather old story to the fore more than half a year after it first broke, metta? Some pro-Hillary distraction/deflection, maybe?
    As a native Hoosier, I'm glad to see this idiot get his comeuppance. Now, perhaps Pence will again step in it and give Hoosiers a chance to rid not just the state house but the governor's mansion of some serious detritus.

    Jud ought to try doing what televangelist Jimmy Swaggart did many years ago when he got photographed at a motel with a hooker. Everyone thought Swaggart was done for. But then he apologized live on air to his television congregation, started crying, called himself a fallen sinner who was no better than anyone else, begged for forgiveness, and appealled to God's mercy. Jimmy's television congregation fell for it, and responded enthusiastically, and for awhile, Jimmy was doing better than ever. But he got caught doing the same thing awhile later, and that was pretty much his undoing. Never underestimate the gullibility of the American public. I bet if Jud made an open appeal directly to his constituents, apologized to them, and claimed that he was only human, he'd get away with it. He'd have to be more careful in the future, though.

    I do like his creative excuse that he's resigning to "spend more time with his family", though.
