Tea Party Republican Explains Why He Made Up Gay Sex Story About Himself

This is just… beyond words. You’re having an affair (both of you are married) and you pretend to be gay to cover it up? How fucked up is your brain?? Never mind. Don’t answer that. You’re a Tea Bagger. ’nuff said.

A Michigan congressman is claiming that he was blackmailed in a “clandestine operation to control public officials” after local media revealed his attempt to conceal an affair with another lawmaker last week.

The Detroit News reported on Friday that state Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat, both tea party-backed Republicans, were having an affair, and were making a bizarre attempt to cover it up.

Both lawmakers, who are each married with children, are now being investigated for violating House rules and misusing state resources.

On May 19, Courser allegedly instructed his former aide, Ben Graham, to email other Republicans with an anonymous accusation that Courser was paying for sex with a man behind a nightclub. The congressman indicated that he hoped the false story would minimize the blowback if news of his affair later spread. Graham, who secretly recorded his conversation with Courser, refused to send the email.
