Namely, that it’s something that should happen at public rest areas with 17-year-old boys you meet on Craigslist.
Democratic leaders in Minnesota are demanding a state lawmaker withdraw from his re-election bid after police claim he admitted to having sex with a 17-year-old boy at a rest stop.
While Rep. Kerry Gauthier, 56, will lose support from fellow Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party members if he continues with his campaign, party leaders stopped short Monday of asking him to immediately resign.
The first-term legislator wasn’t charged in the alleged July 22 encounter because the legal age of consent in Minnesota is 16 and no money was exchanged, according to the St. Louis County attorney’s office. Police say the two had oral sex behind a rest stop pavilion in Duluth after the teen responded to Gauthier’s Craigslist ad looking for a “no strings attached” sex.
What’s the big deal? So he had anonymous sex in a rest area with somebody who’s not old enough to vote for him yet. What are you, a homophobe? It’s not like he said something stupid about rape. Now, that shows a lack of judgment.
