DiFatta: Yet Another Republican Bathroom Scandal

Timothy Kincaid

October 5th, 2007

joeydifatta.jpgStop me if you’ve heard this story: A married Republican elected official goes into a public bathroom…

This time it’s Joey DiFatta, a councilman in Louisianna that had been running for state Senate. Those plans have been terminated because of “health issues”.

Per the Times-Picayune DiFatta was stopped twice but not arrested. One incident:

The report said DiFatta slid his foot into the deputy’s stall and tapped the deputy’s foot. In the report, Conley noted that such activity is common among men to indicate a willingness to participate in sex.

The deputy inside the stall, Detective Wayne Couvillion, responded by tapping his foot, and DiFatta reached under the partition and began to rub the deputy’s leg, the report states.

The detective asked DiFatta, “What do you want?” according to the report, and he replied, “I want to play with you.”

Children entered the department store bathroom and the officer terminated the sting.

In a depressingly familiar way, Joey’s profile is hardly shocking:

Joey is the father of two sons and he has three grandchildren. He is a taxpayer in St. Bernard and St. Tammany parishes and he is a concerned citizen. Currently, Joey Di Fatta is serving as Chairman of the St. Bernard Parish Council. He was elected as Councilman-at-Large 2004-2008.

Although DiFatta’s campaign and interests seemed focused primarily on recovery from Hurricane Katrina and other economic issue, his Plan for Louisianna does include

Defend our conservative values from attacks by extreme liberal groups

And so councilman DiFatta joins Senator Craig and Representative Allen in the club of “not gay” values defenders who seem unable to refrain from inappropriate behavior in public bathrooms.

well they certainly can’t be seen in a gay bar, and apparently they’ve never heard of the internet.

And to think I waste my time trying to pick up men in a bar. I should just follow around the nearest Republican representative. They get the best dick.

Deny, deny, deny! This toilet-side activity probably isn’t the first time for any of these folks. However, it’s their first time getting caught.
