Republicans have long stuck to the claim that transgendered people would use the rule to enter public bathrooms and molest children of the opposite sex. It was that fearmongering that led to the now widely criticized “bathroom laws.”
As it turns out Dan Avery of NewNowNext pointed out in late March that far more Republican lawmakers have been arrested for lewd conduct in bathrooms than trans people.
For those of you keeping count at home.
Republicans – 3
Trans People – 0
Here is the Republican Hall of "Shame" on you:
Hinson, a Mississippi congressman, was arrested in 1981 after he was caught having oral sex with a government worker in a public bathroom. It wasn’t his first time being caught, in 1976 he was arrested for exposing himself to an undercover agent
Hinson eventually came out as an LGBT activist. He passed away from AIDS in 1995.
Craig, an Idaho Republican senator, was arrested following an incident in a Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport bathroom in 2007. An undercover officer said he attempted to solicit him in a sexual transaction between bathroom stalls.
Craig denied his attempt to solicit sex in a public bathroom and plead guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct. He later tried to withdraw his plea and ended up not running for another term in 2008
Florida state Representative Bob Allen was arrested for allegedly agreeing to pay $20 to perform a sex act an undercover cop in a public park. African American men hanging around.
After resigning from office this winner said he was only in the bathroom to high from a “scary” group of African American men who were hanging out nearby.
Avery brought up a good point following this strange case. “It just goes to show that for Republican politicians, it’s better to be thought of as a racist than as wanting to suck another man’s d*ck.”
