Homosachole: Roy Ashburn Goes Disco!
Well that is what it seems. The republican had his Chevy Tahoe impounded and was sent to a holding cell after getting himself busted for driving drunk after leaving Faces, a gay nightclub in Sacramento Wednesday night.
There was a male "companion" with Ashburn, as the two swerved through the Sacramento streets in the early morning hours. I wonder where they were going? 7-11? At 2am you can't buy any more alcohol, so probably not. Were they headed to a swanky motel with hourly rates? Can't keep the wife and his four children waiting all night. Were they working on their platform? Were they looking for a fight or for love?
Ashburn was sorry after getting caught, stating, “I am deeply sorry for my actions and offer no excuse for my poor judgment. I accept complete responsibility for my conduct and am prepared to accept the consequences for what I did.”
Ashburn follows in the footsteps of Larry Craig, David Drier, Mark Foley and Charlie Crist who in recent years have been caught in compromising positions that contrast their anti-gay political views.
A DUI conviction doesn't call for dismissal from his lawmaking senator seat, but this is the final year of Ashburn's term.
