Tennessee rebooblican State Senator Paul Stanley palin'd out on Tuesday to spend more time with his family. His actual, wronged family:
"Due to recent events, I have decided to focus my full attention on my family and resign my Senate seat effective August 10," Republican Paul Stanley wrote in his resignation letter.The "recent events"? Getting caught adulterously boning an intern, and then getting blackmailed over the sex tapes.
Court records show that Stanley, 47, told agents investigating a blackmail case that he had a sexual relationship with intern McKensie Morrison. Her boyfriend, Joel Watts, is charged with trying to extort $10,000 from Stanley in April in return for explicit photos of Morrison that Stanley had taken.Fun fact: Stanley "sponsored failed measures to ban gay couples from adopting children. He also spoke out against funding for Planned Parenthood because he said unmarried people should not have sex." *snicker *
Ah, those repuglicans & their moral values -- an inspiration to us all.
