republican family values

Bible-Loving Ohio Teabagger Also Really Loves Prostitutes, Drugs

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

And this is just how he behaves in a televised interview.

Oh good, the Family Values club of GOP politicians can finally add another tally mark to the heterosexual column on their crowded “hookers ‘n coke scandal” scorecard! It’s a lonely column, that one. What a marvelous lede Cincinnati.com has: “Bible toting Clermont County politician Archie Wilson surfaced from drug treatment Tuesday to answer charges he traded drugs for sex at a bed bug infested motel.” Sexy!

He showed up in court today to deny all of it:

Wilson’s troubles began in June when a female inmate at the Clermont County jail, Amanda Lay, saw Wilson’s photo in a newspaper and asked to speak with a detective. She told investigators that Wilson, over a period of several weeks, had paid to have sex with her in Erlanger motels and that he had provided her with cocaine and pills, according to court records.

Lay, locked up for using drugs while on probation for receiving stolen property, introduced authorities to a second woman who claimed she also had “performed services” for Wilson in exchange for cash and prescriptions. While authorities have not released the name of the second woman, they said she told them she would “engage in shows or sexual encounters” for Wilson, whom she first met at the Venus club four years ago.

We smell a congressional run! [Cincinnati.com; thanks to Wonkette operative “Scott H.”]

    Good thing these kooks believe in a forgiving deity. Just a quick repentance and it's back to business.

      Jesus will forgive him, for a cut of the coke.

      As Archie explained it to me, "Look, son, God doesn't care whatin' you do with yer wanger, he cares about your soul. And subjugatin' women 'n coloreds. Yeah, we have subjugate the women and coloreds to save 'em. Bible says so…"

    Say what you want about "family values" politicians, but they know how to party.

    Amanda Lay
    Best prostitute name ever… better for a rent boy though.

      I'd do her. With three industrial strength condoms. And a 14-pack of Lysol from Costco.

      If that's her real name–WTF were her parents thinking?!?

    Understandable because to have sex at a non-bed bug infested motel in this economy requires expensive baubles from the Tiffany catalog.

    Hey, the Bible is full of sex and drugs, so he was just being very observant.

    Not to mention that paying for sex shows he is a good free market Conservative. Let the market decide! Why is it that Socialist always want to prevent the market from working?

      The LORD said to me, "Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another and is an adulteress. Love her as the LORD loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes."
      So I bought her for fifteen shekels of silver and about a homer and a lethek of barley.

      Jews love raisin cakes.

    The cops caught him in the hotel room paying the hookers with oxycodone, but he claims total innocence because… uh… he was FRAMED! Yeah, he was framed. Plus, you know, Jesus and stuff, so case dismissed.

    • MissTaken

      Ah yes, the good ole "Bitch set me up" defense.

      • SorosBot

        Bitches always are setting their clients; they just force the guys to show up at the hotel with the drugs and money, against their will.

    A long time ago, you had to swear on a Bible. You had to say something like. I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me God. You had to say this with one hand on the Bible and you had to wave at the judge with the other. Back then, if you did this, it made it physically impossible to lie. No matter how hard you tried, you just couldn't lie. This is why I think this guy is probably innocent. You simply can not do bad things if you are carrying a Bible around.
