More Minnesota Craziness: Kerry Gauthier
We need a “Minnesota” category.
From the state that gave us Al Franken, Eugene McCarthy, and Jesse Ventura—who actually appears more statesmanlike every election compared to the current crop of bozos—we bring you State Representative Kerry Gauthier, who was caught in a rest stop hooking up with a 17-y.o. boy he met on Craigslist.
The age of consent in Minnesota is the national minimum of sixteen, so as it stands there was nothing particularly illegal about the incident, excepting perhaps a misdemeanor penalty for committing a public sex act. But it is doubtful that they intended it to be observed so it’s not like he was getting children drunk and waving his penis at them, leading to them having a disturbed and dysfunctional life. Police are investigating the possibility that money traded hands, as Minnesotans are rightfully outraged when the implied sexual contract is stated so obviously, but they might have a hard time proving it in the face of their mutual denial unless Gauthier paid in advance by credit card (insert facepalm here.) So what was so crazy about this incident? S.R. Kerry Gauthier is a Democrat!
That’s right, Kerry Gauthier is neither a conservative family values republican nor a keep-gay-marriage-from-destroying-mine conservative. I don’t know what to make of this, since there is no way he is going to be able to apologize to his constituency for being a hypocrite and performing abominations before God unless he changes political parties and gets help to pray away the gay.
Why, being a confirmed bachelor, he doesn’t even have wronged wife or wrecked family. How will Minnesota ever forgive him?
