Wow...I didn't catch this one in July...but a Florida State House Representative-- REPUBLICAN Bob Allen-- was convicted of soliciting an undercover officer in a bathroom. Allen offered the undercover officer 20 dollars if he'd "allow" Allen to perform oral sex. Interesting...I thought men paid to receive a oral sex not to perform it.
Allen was found guilty an on Tuesday (11/13/07) he received his sentence for his crime. The maximum penalty was 60 days in jail and a $500.00 fine. Allen was placed on six months probation, ordered to pay a $250.00 fine, ordered to undergo testing for STD's, and is forbidden to return to Space View Park, where the incident took place. (Source)
With so many Republicans being caught for soliciting sex in bathrooms, as well as soliciting sex with children this year, it's amazing the Corporate Media has neglected to cover this phenomena. Especially since Republicans like to present themselves as the party with "real" family values.
