Another Republican Snared in Sex Scandal

January 18, 2008 at 8:55 am 5 comments

Its been like 20 minutes since the last Republican sex scandal, so of course its time for another one to surface. This time the sex scandal involves a Texas district attorney who argued all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court that sodomy should be illegal.

The district attorney who defended the Texas law criminalizing homosexuality before the US Supreme Court is desperately trying to keep his job following the discovery of e-mails containing sexually explicit videos, racist jokes and what is described as torrid love notes to his executive secretary.

Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal (R) is facing a state investigation into the emails which were discovered on his office computer.

Say it with me everybody: HYPOCRITE!

Rosenthal is married and has portrayed himself as a strong defender of family values and the sanctity of marriage.

In 2002 when he was vigorously defending the Texas sodomy before the Supreme Court, Rosenthal had this to say about adultery and homosexuality:

“I think that this Court having determined that there are certain kinds of conduct that it will accept and certain kinds of conduct it will not accept may draw the line at the bedroom door of the heterosexual married couple because of the interest that this Court has that this Nation has and certainly that the State of Texas has for the preservation of marriage, families and the procreation of children,” Rosenthal told the justices.

“Even if you infer that various States acting through their legislative process have repealed sodomy laws, there is no protected right to engage in extrasexual – extramarital sexual relations, again, that can trace their roots to history or the traditions of this nation.”

While Rosenthal argued in 2002 that there is “no protected right to engage in extrasexual – extramarital sexual relations” he is fighting to keep his job. He has, however, abandoned his campaign for re-election.

    What I don’t understand is if Republican lawmakers love their gay sex so much, why do they fight so hard to ban it?

    It’s yet another example of “me thinks the lady doth protest too much.”

    Quite often the most stridently homophobic among us are acting in an attempt to suppress or hide their own desires and attractions…
