Rentboy #2?

There are bound to be others, aren’t there. Another former escort and self-described former porn star now says that he was hired by George Rekers to provide full body massage with “light sexual contact.” He said this happened “when I was in my 20’s” — he’s 41 now. He also claims that he’s a close, personal friend of Ted Haggard and believes that Haggard “is a faithful husband to his wife,” and that very much unlike Rekers, Haggard “is a dedicated Christian, and he is no enemy of gays.”

Jo-vanni had the fortune (or misfortune) of having been photographed with Rekers in the Miami airport, which makes his connection to Rekers indisputable. Proving “Chaz’s” connection to Rekers might be extremely difficult, and I don’t know how he will be able to make the connection stick. But whether this particular allegation is true or not, I do believe we can be certain that there are more Jo-vanni’s out there just waiting to come forward. Some, under all kinds of motivations. Caveat emptor.

I don’t trust him. Not sure why but I don’t get a good gut feeling about him.

Rekers has a ‘mark’ on his body that both men can describe to verify all.

Two little foster boy’s adoptions are in the appeal process because of Florida’s Attorney General, Bill McCollum. These boys have been with their adoptive parents since 2004, one was an infant when placed. Florida has already made it clear they plan on REMOVING both boys and finding them new homes if their ban is upheld in the Court of Appeals!
Florida begged Gil & his partner to initially take these children despite them being in the process of moving to Georgia-promising it would only be short term. When the Social Workers never moved the kids and couldn’t find them another home-Gil and his partner actually sold their home in Georgia and stayed in Florida simply so that the boys wouldn’t have to be moved or separated into two foster homes. That was their level of commitment to those kids.
The boys are doing fantastic with them and are obviously bonded at this point. So naturally those children want a permanent home. Mental Health therapists have already testified that it would be devastating to the boys to move them at this point. But Florida’s AG chose to ignore those facts and dug up Reker as a way to deny the adoption.

Here’s a brief story on them

And here’s the latest update on the boys:

Isn’t is amazing that in Florida a gay couple is good enough to be licensed as foster parents but not a permanent home! And Florida’s Attorney General was willing to stack the deck and spend $120,000 on a fake expert (that was discredited in an Arkansas Court 3 yrs earlier) who has since been revealed as man who hires male prostitutes.

Of course, that same Attorney General is now running for Governor-so I guess him making children pawns in some political game is what appeals to him conservative base in Florida.
