Sometimes I wonder if it's a requirement for a Republican politician to be God-fearing, corporate loving and closeted. It feels like every other month another one is caught with his pants down (literally). This week, our lucky winner is Republican member of Puerto Rico's senate: Roberto Arango.
Last week, a Puerto Rican TV show Dando Candela found some very revealing pictures of Arango on the gay hook-up site, Grindr.
The TV show confronted Arango and instead of coming clean about it, he said this: "You know I've been losing weight. As I shed that weight, I've been taking pictures. I don't remember taking this particular picture but I'm not gonna say I didn't take it. I'd tell you if I remembered taking the picture but I don't." Okay, but how do you explain the bent over picture and the active Grindr account?
The interesting thing about Arango is that in 2004, he was the vice-chair of George W' Bush Puerto Rico campaign. That was also the campaign where Bush threatened a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.
Oh Roberto...I'm sure we will see more "weight loss" pictures as time progress. Keep up the good work, senator.
