Homosachole: Roy Ashburn Goes Disco!

California state Senator Roy Ashburn (R-Bakersfield) is a fighter when it comes to marriage equality.  That is, his political position to fight against homosexual marriage rights is at odds with his raging desires of relieving his inner-most hunger for men.

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.
