Puerto Rican Senator Roberto Arango resigned this weekend after nude photos of him were found on the gay smartphone hook-up app Grindr. Arango had voted for Resolution 99, which would have blocked same-sex marriages, and he helped to block a measure banning discrimination and allowing for adoption rights for gays. In 2004. Arango served as the committee chairman for Puerto Rico for the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign, and played leadership roles for the Republican Party in Puerto Rico. Arango neither confirmed nor denied the photos were his, but said that he had taken a few photos of himself because he had been “losing weight.”

It is a bitter medicine, but perhaps Puerto Rico and the Senator himself will be better for it.

I might have considered his explanation possible, if not plausible, had he posted a “before” picture showing how fat his anus used to be before he slimmed it down to the size it was in the picture that’s caused all the commotion.

Okay, it’s starting to scare me how many euphemisms these guys have for anything involving Teh Gay.

My, hot man-man sex sure burns off the calories! It just makes a girl thrill that she can get into a size 4, so of course she has to show the booty off!

well, the guy is half right, his ass IS smaller now and he wanted to immortalize it.

Of course, now he’s an even bigger ass himself. :P

Now that he resigned, certainly Arango will be spreading his wings looking for other sources of income to show that he’s not thoroughly washed up. I smell an opportunity for him to earn royalties by allowing that infamous photo to become the logo-graphic for the soon-to-be-launched
