Medford New Jersey Mayor Chris Myers has had better days. He now joins a much too long list of Republican elected officials who have been caught in gay sex scandals based on sloppy game, poor planning and overall loose morals. According to the Trentonian newspaper the small town mayor hired a male escort from the website Rentboy.com during a business trip to California in 2010.
For the low price of $500.00 Myers engaged in “End your career” sex but apparently this wasn’t his first time to the down-low rodeo. The mayor was so bold and confident in his game that he actually showed off his credentials to the escort and made all sorts of promises to keep in touch and support the man’s future music career.
Upon realizing that he was never going to get the extra goodies promised, the unidentified prostitute contacted the Trentonian newspaper in New Jersey and started sending incriminating pictures and emails from the encounter to prove that this Jersey member of the GOP was down with OPP (The other P stands for….).
I must admit though, the revenge element of this case strikes me as odd. It’s one thing for a gay prostitute to go after a political leader for hypocrisy if they find out the same guy who was paying them for sex is an anti-homosexual bigot. But, you’re going to break down a guy’s career for not fulfilling some bedroom promises to fund your dream to become the gay Ferrell?
Fortunately for Myers this scandal has broken in New Jersey – a place that apparently is quite forgiving of politicians in gay sex scandals. The last guy busted for stepping out on for the other side ended up with a better paying job and his wife got on Oprah. That wouldn’t be a bad result for a $500.00 night of shame and degradation.
