Endless Cummer Begins: Minnesota Pol Caught With Live Boy — And The Pol Is A Democrat?

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Where the boys areWell, this makes no sense at all. A Minnesota state representative was caught having Rest Stop Hijinks with a 17-year-old boy — and the state representative is a Democrat? No no no, Democratic politicians get nabbed making sex on grown up ladies; it is 100 percent always true forever that if there is a live boy in the equation, the politician in question is a sad closet case Florida Republican or Baptist preacher! Minnesota just cannot keep its shit straight, we guess! Oh well, Democratic state Rep. Kerry Gauthier, who represents Duluth, told the Duluth News-Tribune “I think it’s a private matter and I don’t need to talk about it.” Everybody hear that? Sure, no problem!

The Northland News Center reports:

State Patrol will confirm that one witness approached a trooper around 11 at night on July 22nd to report an incident.

The State Patrol turned the investigation over to the Duluth Police Department. Police spokespeople say they are conducting a criminal investigation but they refuse to say why Gauthier was arrested.

However well placed sources today told the Northland’s NewsCenter, the incident involved a 17 year old boy with whom Gauthier was reportedly engaged in a sexual act.

Because the age of consent in Minnesota is 16 it is not illegal to have sex with someone who is 17. However it can be a misdemeanor to engage in sex acts in a public place.

Our sources say Representative Gauthier met the young man on Craig’s List and that police are investigating the potential that money changed hands which could make it a criminal matter.

So obviously it is time to shut down CraigsList. Your Wonket thinks we can all agree on that.

Minnesota, land of 1000 statutory rapes.

Somebody alert Bathhouse Gollum.

Schmannnity August 16, 2012 at 11:52 am

He must be a transsexual.

SorosBot August 16, 2012 at 11:54 am

Wait, people can meet prostitutes on CraigsList? We must shut it down now, along with all of the nation's alt weeklies!

CthuNHu August 16, 2012 at 12:12 pm

And truck stops! And Las Vegas! And Trump Tower!

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 12:20 pm

What about places where people prostitute themselves to corporations? We'd have to shut down the Ways and Means Committee and such.

Designer_Rants August 16, 2012 at 12:33 pm

And ACORN, since a fake pimp went into one of their offices once. Oh, too late.

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Can't we form a undercover sting operation to investigate this for a few years first? I'm not a cop or in law enforcement, but wouldn't that make me the perfect volunteer for the job?

bikerlaureate August 17, 2012 at 12:35 am

After the Tampa Stampede, of course.

Wadisay August 16, 2012 at 11:54 am

So we can now say that toe-tappin' and wide-stancin' still work in Minnesota's restrooms.

dennis1943 August 16, 2012 at 1:44 pm

"In a victory for bipartisanship"…………………

"The theory of Republican forbidden little boy love is a theory, and essentially the theory of Republican forbidden little boy love is not science — Wonkette made it up," Waide said.

Beetagger August 16, 2012 at 11:55 am

I blame Michelle Bachman for turning him against women forever.

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 12:29 pm

And Marcus for being so damn sexy hawt and yum yum yummy. Also. Too.

dennis1943 August 16, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Not women,but maybe Chritianmingle.com…………………

Extemporanus August 16, 2012 at 11:55 am

DINO.

MacRaith August 16, 2012 at 11:55 am

Let's see, what are the Fox News talking points going to be?

1. Democrats do it too, therefore Republicans don't do it.
2. The one Democrat should be punished much more severely than the dozens of Republicans who have been caught doing the same thing, because nothing else would be Fair and Balanced.
3. It's Obama's fault, because Obama's monogamous scandal-free marriage is causing the complete moral decline of America. Also, he's black.
4. The obvious solution is more tax cuts for the rich.

AbandonHope_ August 16, 2012 at 11:58 am

Wow, it's like I'm there watching Fox and Friends.

OH MY GOD MY BRAIN SHUT IT OFF

SorosBot August 16, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Come now, it's not like a Democratic Congressman in a scandal that involves no actual sex but just dick pics would be hounded out of Congress, while a Republican can hire hookers to force him to wear diapers and still get reelected.

freakishlywrong August 16, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Again. Can't tell if serious. We've gotten way too good at this shit..

nounverb911 August 16, 2012 at 11:55 am

Does Marcus "Pray away the gay" in Democrats too?

AddHomonym August 16, 2012 at 11:56 am

Gauthier is now just somebody that we used to know.

mayor_quimby August 16, 2012 at 11:58 am

Fucking winning the day, bravo!

WhatTheHeck August 16, 2012 at 11:59 am

Now that song is stuck in my head again. Thanks.A.Lot.

ChillBill August 16, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Man, I fucking hate that Peter Gabriel b side!

Pragmatist2 August 16, 2012 at 11:56 am

Hmm. he's in Minnesota and he met the boy on Craig's List. So now we know what Larry Craig has been up to since that incident at the Minneapolis AIrport.

Boojum August 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

So, the 17 year old's name is Craig? Who else is on his list?

foxpuppet August 16, 2012 at 12:30 pm

And is that his first or last name?

Callyson August 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

“I think it’s a private matter and I don’t need to talk about it.”

So Gauthier doesn't go for the dirty talk. OK then…

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Seems like he took "how to answer interview questions" lessons from Ann Romney. Was he stroking the nose of Magic when he said that?

SayItWithWookies August 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

When a Democrat has rest-stop sex with a boy it's evidence of how debased liberal values are — but when a Republican has rest-stop sex with a boy it's because his standards are just so high not even he can live up to them. It's all in how you approach the ethics of the thing.

emmelemm August 16, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Also, Jesus forgives him.

Texan_Bulldog August 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

If he's not a crazy homophobic, family 'values' jerk face, sounds like a personal problem. It's the hypocrisy that's so annoying.

Typodong3 August 16, 2012 at 12:05 pm

EXACTLY.

sullivanst August 16, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Although it does seem he runs on a law-and-order platform, which invokes shades of Spitzer. His thing appears to be drugs though, so not the hypocrisy of a prostitute-prosecutor procuring prostitutes.

TavariousChinaSmith August 16, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Look, if a prosecutor wants to procure a post-pubescent prossie for the purpose of peering at his penis, who are we to peg the poor public-serving pederast?

noodlesalad August 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

He's just reaching around the aisle.

Oblios_Cap August 16, 2012 at 12:04 pm

One can only wonder if this story had a happy ending.

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Come back tomorrow for more.

Tundra Grifter August 16, 2012 at 11:58 am

Here in California, 17 will get you twenty. Years.

Blueb4sinrise August 16, 2012 at 11:59 am

Sounds FRENCH to me.

Swampgas_Man August 16, 2012 at 11:24 pm

More like Greek Active.

JustPixelz August 16, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Things like this didn't happen before Ryan was on the ticket.

Oblios_Cap August 16, 2012 at 12:03 pm

He was probably imagining those dreamy blue zombie eyes while that young fella was servicing him.

Typodong3 August 16, 2012 at 12:05 pm

You mean imagining Ryan?

Oblios_Cap August 16, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Since he's not a member of the press, probably not.

Oblios_Cap August 16, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Occupation: Social services : I'll say!

Hey, the act wasn't illegal. Just doing it in public. He's apparently unmarried, so it's nothing he'll have to explain to the missus.

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 12:23 pm

But he might have to explain it to a mister, though. Ever think of that?

Fare la Volpe August 16, 2012 at 10:47 pm

Bum bum BUUUUUUUUM.

ChillBill August 16, 2012 at 12:02 pm

A Blue Dog, prolly.

AbandonHope_ August 16, 2012 at 12:04 pm

In Minnesota? Almost certainly.

widestanceromance August 16, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Blue Ball Democrat?

HogeyeGrex August 16, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Well, certainly a dog, anyway.

Baconzgood August 16, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Cocktober is cumming early this year.

FakaktaSouth August 16, 2012 at 12:06 pm

As it is a thousand degrees this morning, I am going to assume Cocktober will also be a part of the Indian Cummer that will surely overtake us all.

SavageDrummer August 16, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Cocktaugest?

ph7 August 16, 2012 at 12:03 pm

He's invoking "the Romney":

1. He has been very transparent
2.There’s nothing he's hiding
3. No, he won't talk about it.

Typodong3 August 16, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Arent these underaged sexual encounters supposed to take place in "quiet rooms"??

widestanceromance August 16, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Quiet, except for the slurping.

metamarcisf August 16, 2012 at 12:05 pm

If this politician was a democrat, Wonkette would've ignored this story.

kittensdontlie August 16, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Afterwards, the young man was dropped off at the playground,…so no harm, no foul.

sbj1964 August 16, 2012 at 12:07 pm

The guy was just Polling his district.

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 12:39 pm

And cramming his agenda down the throats of the young voters?

An_Outhouse August 16, 2012 at 12:11 pm

This is clearly Obama's fault.

SavageDrummer August 16, 2012 at 12:12 pm

But… if they close down craigslist where will I get free futons and pianos?

MissTaken August 16, 2012 at 12:12 pm

He's just reaching around for the youth vote.

elviouslyqueer August 16, 2012 at 12:13 pm

“I think it’s a private matter and I don’t need to talk about it.”

See, this alone would've marked him as a Democrat. A Republican would've:

a) Denied, denied, and denied again;

b) Started finger pointing at the police, the boy, the rest stop security, the state Department of Transportation, and quite possibly Ray LaHood (because, hello, OBAMA);

c) Called a hastily-arranged news conference to confess that he was a sinner who needed to get "right with God" and/or "spend more time with his family to try and heal from this traumatic experience";

d) Checked himself into rehab; and

e) Booked an interview with Hannity in order to assail Obama for putting too much taxpayer money into law enforcement patrols of rest stops (and entrapping and arresting innocent citizens) when he really should be shoring up defense spending and creating jobs.

Jus_Wonderin August 16, 2012 at 12:34 pm

B.I.N.G.O.

An_Outhouse August 16, 2012 at 12:52 pm

The scary black man was intimidating and when he's nervous he needs to suck on something.

neiltheblaze August 16, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Is he at least a blue dog???

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 12:26 pm

if there is a live boy in the equation, the politician in question is a sad closet case Florida Republican or Baptist preacher!

Don't forget the Catholic priests. Saw a story today about a priest who was arrested because they found him in just his underwear running after a 12-year-old in the street. Wonder what his excuse will be.

metamarcisf August 16, 2012 at 12:31 pm

His excuse is he didn't have time to take off his underwear.

Steverino247 August 16, 2012 at 2:19 pm

He's collecting for the Red Cross?

Limeylizzie August 16, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Is he gay-married?

Fare la Volpe August 16, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Not now he isn't.

Generation[redacted] August 16, 2012 at 12:26 pm

A rest stop? Seriously? People do this?

Fare la Volpe August 16, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Honestly, I thought rest stop sex went out of style with Castro clones and handkerchief code.

Misty Malarky August 16, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Is it a public place if you hold the stall door shut with your free hand?

Just wondering…

Jus_Wonderin August 16, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Wait now, why would I know this? Oh, I see now.

Texpunk August 16, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Free hand?

MinAgain August 16, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Why are closeted gay men such cheap-asses? Would it kill them to rent a hotel room?

Jus_Wonderin August 16, 2012 at 12:36 pm

It might be the thrill of risking getting caught. So, a fail in this instance.

MinAgain August 16, 2012 at 12:44 pm

You'd think screwing a 17 year old boy would be enough of a thrill, on its own.

BadassKitty August 16, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Kerry was my neighbor. He is gay and out of the closet.

MinAgain August 16, 2012 at 1:46 pm

I stand corrected.

NYNYNYjr August 16, 2012 at 12:33 pm

"Let's just say it's someone I used to know," said Rep. Gauthier about the encounter.

Misty Malarky August 16, 2012 at 12:33 pm

OT: Why do the Republicans get all the dreamy-eyed dreamboats?

Nostrildamus August 16, 2012 at 2:33 pm

They own all the eye-ball manufacturing plants?

foxpuppet August 16, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Closet Republican. Clearly.

Beowoof August 16, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Who knew democrats like sucking dick too.

An_Outhouse August 16, 2012 at 12:55 pm

I wonder how much money Larry Craig got for his list.

Guppy August 16, 2012 at 12:59 pm

As far as I can tell, he's not married, and the sexytimes he was having appears perfectly legal (sex with a 17 year-old is almost never wise nor sane, even for other 17 year-olds, but still legal in like half the states). Is he a Blue Dog? Is he a marriage-defending Chick-Fil-A fan?

Without some hot, nasty hypocrisy, this "Endless Cummer" is just a disappointing, half-hearted hand-job.

I mean, who here hasn't had misdemeanor public sex?

Steverino247 August 16, 2012 at 2:21 pm

I mean, who here hasn't had misdemeanor public sex?

You really expect us to answer that?

HistoriCat August 16, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Define "misdemeanor public sex".

Guppy August 16, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Ask the Border Patrol.

Fare la Volpe August 16, 2012 at 10:58 pm

I mean, who here hasn't had misdemeanor public sex?

Memories~
Like the corners of my mind…

ttommyunger August 17, 2012 at 7:12 pm

You mean, today?

Troglodeity August 16, 2012 at 1:06 pm

The age of consent in Minnesota is SIXTEEN? Man, Minnesota must be home to some seriously depraved, immoral politicians.

SorosBot August 16, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Sixteen is the age of consent in most of the US, as well as Europe; for whatever reason most people think it's eighteen, maybe because that's the age of consent for porn, but that's not the case in most states.

anniegetyerfun August 16, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Did he take the teenager across a border and get him a gay abortion? That's also totally legal.

HistoriCat August 16, 2012 at 2:49 pm

As long as you leave him back at the swing set, of course.

Naked_Bunny August 16, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Republicans would be pleased at this sudden display of bipartisanship if they were capable of feeling happiness.

BadassKitty August 16, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Kerry was my neighbor when I lived in Duluth. He's gay and very open about it. Nice guy, too. It's not illegal since the boy was 17 but it is pretty poor judgment. WTF, Kerry? WTF????

Thunderclees August 16, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Finally, the restrooms at MSP are getting a break.

MadBrahms August 16, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Rebecca, I'm a little worried at the number of times you used "live" as an adjective in this post. It makes me worry what other scandals are in the Wonket pipeline, which sounds like a dark, dark place.

fuflans August 16, 2012 at 2:37 pm

i found my current job on craigslist. and i do not usually have to take my clothes off.

HistoriCat August 16, 2012 at 2:50 pm

"Usually" you say – do go on.

thefrontpage August 16, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Sounds NORWEGIAN to us.

thefrontpage August 16, 2012 at 3:16 pm

People should be suspicious in this state, because here are the names of all the rest stops on Minnesota Route 69, the main thoroughfare through the state:

1. Craig's Lair

2. Larry Craig Memorial Rest Stop

3. Bette Midler Bathhouse and Rest Stop

4. Mark Foley Rest Area

5. Peter Pan Rest Stop

6. Neverland Rest Area

7. Republican Rest Stop

8. Wide Stance Rest Area

9. Craig's List Appreciation Rest Stop

10. Twinkling Stars Rest Stop

Fare la Volpe August 16, 2012 at 11:00 pm

10. Twinkling Stars Rest Stop

I threw just a little.

Lazy Media August 16, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Well, it is certainly true that any sex involving a 17-year-old is a disgusting crime and is exactly the same as forcibly raping an 8-year-old.

ibwilliamsi August 17, 2012 at 12:34 am

The sad part of this story is that he will resign in shame, while a Rethuglican would make his ditz of a wife stand next to him while he apologized and said that he had a sex addiction that he was cured of by his Minister.

The Dems need some of those sex addiction curing ministers.

ttommyunger August 17, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Call me crazy, or an apologist, but I smell a set-up.
