Maybe they Needed Robo-Johns

The other day I referenced that Ft. Lauderdale’s mayor wanted automated bathrooms to cut down on “homosexual sex”.  Now perhaps we know where he got the idea.

State Rep. Bob Allen (R-Merritt Island) was arrested Wednesday afternoon at a local park after offering to perform a sex act on an undercover officer [in a bathroom stall] in exchange for $20, police said.

Those wacky Floridians. And because hypocrisy and irony dance a tango:

Allen, who sponsored a failed bill that would have tightened the state’s prohibition on public sex, scheduled a news conference at his lawyer’s office to discuss Wednesday’s arrest.

UPDATE: Allen has held his press conference wherein he claimed he was not guilty – but said some peculiar things:

It is not true. It is unaccurate, and it is therefore not guilty…and I will be standing strongly for that.   …

And there are many details that they will lose the burden of proof.

In other words, Allen will try to claim that the cop was lying and that you can’t prove otherwise. I have doubts that this will be very convincing either to the court or to his constituents. My predictions: plea to some lesser charge, leaving office to pursue other ventures, claims that he’s doing so to shelter his family from scrutiny.

He wanted to pay $20 to give someone oral sex. Ugh!

Have you seen his picture? $20 was WAY too low.

Those are very nasty comments to be making about someone who is obviously a troubled person.

He may be troubled, but he should be in therapy somewhere instead of introducing laws to make people who behave like he does felons. An honest whore would be ashamed.

On a lighter note, I’d like to see a picture of the hot cop who got offered $20 for some dick.
