After explicit photos of Puerto Rican state senator Roberto Arango were released last Friday, he quickly resigned on Sunday. Arango was presented with a dilemma when nude picture of him surfaced from the gay hook-up site, Grindr.
At the time, Arango neither confirmed nor denied that the pictures were of him. In fact, he said the pictures were taken to show off his weight loss. I hope he didn't think that explanation would suffice, but he stuck with it. However, by the end of the weekend, Arango presented his letter of resignation to Senate President Thomas Rivera Schatz.
Arango joins a growing list of anti-gay Republicans with their own gay scandals. He supported an anti-gay marriage resolution and opposed adoption rights for gay people in Puerto Rico. Isn't it very interesting how these matters play out?
