NJ GOP Mayor Has ‘No Idea’ How Rentboy Got Sexy Pictures of Him

These kids and their photoshopz!Ah, the old “probably it was some guy who broke into my hotel room and took pictures of me sleeping in my underwear” excuse. Medford, New Jersey mayor Chris Myers is here to fill the weekly news slot reserved for the outing of one or another garden variety self-loathing, escort-loving closeted Republican politician with a weak claim that he is totally clueless as to how a California rentboy got all those photos of Myers and his magical Superman-sized briefs asleep in a hotel bed (along with pictures of his IDs and his cell phone number). Or, uh, Photoshop maybe? Probably it was the terrorists with their Photoshop.

The photos appeared on a website started by the anonymous angry California rentboy, who claims the straight-married father of two inexplicably offered to buy him a car and then didn’t follow through on the promise. (Note to rentboy: “politician” is the top thesaurus-listed antonym for “promise keeper,” what were you expecting?)

Here is the weird denial Myers gave to PhillyBurbs.com:

Myers also said he has been to California and many other places around the world on business, but he couldn’t say whether he was there in October 2010 when the alleged incident occurred.

Myers said he wasn’t even sure the photos were of him and wondered if they had been altered.

“I’ve been down that road before, where a photo has been photoshopped to look like something it wasn’t,” he said, declining to provide specifics.

He said the bag with his identification in it was easily accessible and that someone could have sneaked into his hotel room to capture him sleeping and take photos of his personal ID cards and badge.

“I just don’t know. There are crazy people and I’m not going to justify craziness,” he said.

Myers is also declining to have the matter investigated, to save the anonymous rentboy the embarrassment, probably. [PhillyBurbs.com]

      It would take the rent boy 90 minutes to find his sad little prawn, and an auto jack to prop Christie up for service. A gas mask would also be recommended. I'd advise demanding time-and-a-half, plus workman's comp protection.

    Myers also said he has been to California and many other places around the world on business, but he couldn’t say whether he was there in October 2010 when the alleged incident occurred.

    He can't look back on his calendar and see if there were meetings scheduled in California? I'm a nobody where I work and yet I can look back several years and tell you if I was in another state. Thankfully, no naked hotel pics, but I'm not a closeted male republican either.

    • zappadoo76

      It was blackmail. Not "random." Not chosen in advance either. The rentboy decided to blackmail the mayor the moment he found out who he was. The mayor wouldn't give him what he asked for (BMW, recording equipment), so now the rentboy is outing him. That is as obvious to me as the nose on my face, which I can actually see if I look into the corner of my eye.

    When Anthony Weiner tried this excuse, the media went crazy. But, then again he was a Democrat cruising for some strange and not a Family Values Party guy. Besides, the approved Fox News version of escaping this type of charge is, 1.) He was set up. 2.) I won't dignify that with a response / we've talked this to death and I have nothing more to add, or 3.) Everyone does it, what's the big deal? All may need to be used here…before he resigns.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Weiner, though, didn't even get any. I'm guessing rentboy put out.

Perhaps they think they will get free/discounted services from rentboys just by flashing their business card. Which makes me think that a rentboy who advertises "Free BJs for All GOP elected officials" could make A LOT of money.

      Obviously he got Larry Flynt's groupon special.

      The rentboys could actually *give* free BJs and *still* make a lot of money, by blackmailing the dumb bastards.

      That'll teach Mr. Mayor from making promises he doesn't intend to keep. But someone should tell RentBoy that's total SOP for bad boyfriends.

    Yes, there is a seeeekrit plot against the mayor of Medford, NJ. Daniel Craig will play Myers in the movie version.

    [In a Public Relations class on 'Damage Control' ten years from now]

    "And so we see that in retrospect, Chris Myers' decision to release copies of his passport to the press in order to refute claims that he was in California at the time proved to be ill-advised. A skilled PR agent would have alerted Myers that the nearly two dozen stamps indicating trips to Thailand might prove detrimental to the mayor's public image."

    • GregComlish

      Ummm… I do.

      Not really sure where else I should put it. Gold is in a bubble. Asian market is in a bubble. Europe is fucked. Possibly looking at a double dip recession that could hit domestic stocks hard. Never really been a bond man myself. I'd consider real estate, but I'm too worried about job security to settle down.

      Guess I could just buy more energy futures but, I do like to keep some liquidity and not get excessive commodity exposure, which also could fluctuate during a double dip.

      • 102415

        I feel the same. I can't put it under the bed. I have a lot of dividend stocks already. If everything crashes it crashes we will all be fucked. I suppose I should stock up on hobo beans. Wait, maybe I should sell hobo beans. Didn't James Dean do pretty well selling beans in "East of Eden"?

    Its obvious now, isn't it, that he has a secret, evil, gay twin? Surely thats the most logical explanation, his secret, evil, gay twin periodically drugs him and then runs rampant in the world, impersonating him, and doing all kinds of homo and gay stuff everywhere, with rentboys and everything, and then the secret evil gay twin disappears, and poor Chris wakes up and has to deal with the aftermath. Secret evil gay twin is probably in cahoots with the rentboy, trying to extort a nice Mazda3 or a low mileage Chrysler Neon out of him. Who among us hasn't been down that road, in truth?

    Operation Mayor was a clean success, Chief. We drugged his room-service hamburger, then the whole team made an entry. We copied all of his documents on our XE36-1 secreted decoder rings and arranged him in various positions for incriminating photographs. Then we pulled out. He never knew what happened. We own him now and therefore, we own Medford.

        I don't know where you read about the rubber chicken, but that's not what's served at Republican fuckfests. IIRC, the last teabagger party they threw themselves (back when they still had money) featured steak and lobster, which apparently really pissed off the hoveround-riding rank and file Poorz they somehow suckered into joining their "party."

  • luke_warm

    I find it enjoyable when self-hating hypocrites who've been in favor of a whole anti-gay bigoted agenda get outed, but this guy seems to have positioned himself as a moderate republican who was against don't ask, don't tell, so I'm wondering what the uproar is about here. Is it just that he's gay?

    • Jukesgrrl

      I have no problem with him being gay. I care about his carelessness in embarrassing his wife and kids if they didn't know about his extracurricular activities, especially if they were used as props to advance whatever political career one has being mayor of a New Jersey hamlet. But you have a valid point. Innocent until proven guilty. Maybe the kids knew about Dad romping with rent boys in his Underoos.

  • Callyson

    Oh, and the piece de resistance, from the rentboy's website: Mr Mayor likes red flavored lube (scroll to the bottom of the webpage for that gem)…

    • prommie

      Flavored? For the felching?

      • user-of-owls

        Red-flavored is what the 'marinara' sauce in the school cafeteria was. It was awful, but not nearly as bad as the gray-flavored 'meat.'

        • tessiee

          They have (or used to have) something in the midwest called "red pop" (i.e., soda). You know it's bad when they're not even pretending to have a flavor instead of a color. It's like saying "chocolate colored milkshake".

          • user-of-owls

            aka, 'brown milk.'

            The Peruvians have taken the 'red pop' in a rather unsettling direction with Inca Kola, whose palish yellow hue is reminiscent…oh, just look at it.

          • Negropolis

            Faygo Libel! This Michigander demands a retraction of that statement, post haste.

          • tessiee

            Sorry, my friend, but no retractions are in order. Having lived in Ann Arbor for two years, I'm a former Michigander (or, as I like to call it, Mishugenah) myself, and I can state without fear of contradiction that Faygo absolutely did make something called "Red Pop", and it was on the shelves of every supermarket.
