Politicians and Sex: Redux

Remember Paul Stanley? Not the vocalist from KISS but the Tennessee State Senator. I wrote about him several times in regards to legislation he had introduced to ban gay and lesbian couples from adopting children.

He is in the news again.

Stanley recently sponsored a bill designed to prevent gay couples from adopting children. And when a Planned Parenthood official recently sought his support for family planning services for Memphis teens, Stanley told her, according to the official, that he "didn't believe young people should have sex before marriage anyway, that his faith and church are important to him, and he wants to promote abstinence."

So far, so far Republican. But you can see where this is going...

In a sworn affidavit, a Tennessee state investigator has said that Stanley admitted to having a "sexual relationship" with a 22-year-old female intern working in his office, and to taking nude pictures of her in "provocative poses" in his apartment.

He loves Jesus though so it's all good.
