    They just cannot help it!

    1. Nawal Husnoo 25 Aug 2011, 5:07pm

      Yeah, self-repressed homosexuals tend to be the worst homophobes! I wrote the description once: [Gay Agenda, 2:7] (, [Gay Agenda, 2:10] (, and never have to change it, as it applies to them so consistently!

    2. They being gays?
      This man (Hinkle) is obviously part of the ‘gay community’, but has not ‘come out’, or are you referring to the immoral slug that solicited for homosexual sex?
      Both immoral homosexuals, both filthy buggers.

      1. Interesting to note that it’s often the homophobes who shout loudest about it who wind up in hotels with rent boys, eh Keith.

        1. I see no distinction. one is a gay old fogey and a hypocrite, obviously not homophobe since he is not ‘averse’ tp homosexuals. The other is an immoral lslug of low character that trades his filthy perversions for money.
          Both lowlifes, both courting loathsome disease, neither homophobic though by definition. A most curious yet incorrect accusation if ever there was one!

          1. Never mind Keith.

            No-one would ever suggest that someone who professes abhorrence of all things homosexual but who hangs around gay news sites like an old tart outside a sailors’ tavern touting for trade, could possibly be repressing any urges if you know what I mean.

            And someone who has a morbid fascination for the details of sex practices that I for one had barely heard of – let alone been interested in – couldn’t possibly have mixed motives – naming no names, eh, eh?

            Have no fear, your secret’s safe here…

        There is no ‘”gay community” as you put it.
        It’s about time you took the word ‘sex’ out of ‘homosexual.
        Being gay is between the ears, not the legs.

      3. “…obviously part of the ‘gay community’”
        That’d be in the same way that anyone of Sub-Saharan African descent is part of ‘the black community’, is it?

    3. Dan Filson 30 Aug 2011, 9:40pm

      By “They just cannot help it!” I am of course referring to Republican politicians, but it seems endemic amongst a wide variety of politicians the world over to preach one thing and practice, quite well in some cases, something quite else.

  2. He’s just digging a hole for himself!

    1. I had assumed be was paying for sex so he had a hole ready and paid for!

  3. Ha Ha. [That is all …]

  4. sounds pretty gay to me…

  5. Creepy, disgusting excuse for a man..

  6. Jock S. Trap 25 Aug 2011, 2:53pm

    What a bloody hypocrite.

    No doubt he’ll continue with his anti-Gay stance, too. coz he’s not Gay right?!! Yeah right!!

    This is what happens with the Keiths/Phillip Hinkles of this world. A world that do far better without them.

    1. Nawal Husnoo 25 Aug 2011, 5:09pm

      Definitely not gay! He didn’t have sex with the hooker afterall!

      [Gay Agenda, 2:8] (

      1. because the “hooker” backed out!

  7. Me dear, gay dear, no dear…

  8. To Mr. Hinkle:

    Please just shut the fvck up before you make yourself sound any more ridiculous than you already do.

  9. It’s not people like him I blame. I blame the morons who listen and follow them and believe them when they say they aren’t gay and aren’t homophobic and not hypocrites. Then believe that this is the kin of politician and human we bee in power with great responsibility.

  10. the power of repressed homosexuality continues to amaze me..

    1. Nawal Husnoo 25 Aug 2011, 5:09pm

      Let’s see how long this definition holds!

      [Gay Agenda, 2:7] (

      1. priceless site…

        Thanks, Nawal :)

  11. Well see ya Mr. Hinkle, and give our regards to Mr Tumnus, Mr and Mrs Beaver and the White Witch when you see them again at the back of the closet.
    From what I hear, Narnia is getting a bit overcrowded with Republican homophobes…

  12. What a pathetic excuse for a man.

  13. Hmmm, hiring a rentboy on Craigslist was done for “a joke”… Yep well I know just what he means.
    Whenever I want to have a laugh I go looking for callgirls on websites and invite them round to a hotel room so I can share the joke of not being attracted to them with all my mates who aren’t there to witness the moment.
    File that excuse up there with “I hired him to lift my luggage” and “I left my mobile phone set to vibrate stood upright in the middle of the shower when I slipped”!

    1. har har har…

  14. Well we know he’s a complete liar just from his Craigslist ad… fit and in shape? Disgusting, I’d rather shoot myself in the face.

    How people like him can live down the shame and embarrassment is beyond me.It must take a special amount of denial, arrogance and brainwashing to truly socialise/work within these groups, my mind simply cannot fathom it.

    1. a couple of extra strength Tylenol every 6 hours ought to it for some..

  15. He says he was edging on doing something… lol! Again, should we be surprised to learn that the GOP has yet another homophobic closet case in the mist. What I find particularly disturbing is how he chose to hook up with a teen (i.e. the old ‘theory’ that picking younger man means they’re less powerful, perhaps less likely to have any stds… just like the powerful men who want sex with men have always done… more like hedging!) I hope his wife won’t be so goddamn dumb to stand by this SOB.

  16. I didn’t inhale …

    I have a wide stance …

    We were doing meth not sex …

  17. Hahahahaha,’pay for gay’,lol.Makes a change from ‘gay for pay’,lol.
    “I don’t know what I was doing”
    “I was on medication”
    “My wife doesn’t understand me”
    Hahahaha,just ‘fess up & be done with it! But nothing happened,so no harm done,lol.

  18. Always reminds me of Senator White from Little Britain USA…

    1. Perfect! :D

    2. Haw haw haw…. :)

    3. Very apt

  19. Big surprise another hypocritcal Republitard…..none of them are as conservative as they say ….they just say what people want to hear so they can get the votes but in reality do not practice what they preach…..pathetic … and let live and be done with it!!

  20. Looks like Roy Zimmerman’s Ted Haggard song is never going to lose relevance…

  21. If he’s not gay, then what was he doing trolling Craig’s list and soliciting a young male? Hardly the behaviour of a straight man. Another delusional republican closet case. From what I’ve read, the boy’s sister kept the telephone conversation between Hinkle’s wife and her in which she offered $10,000 to keep quiet.

  22. The next time some self-loathing homophobe tries to gives out some anti-gay sh@t, I will send them this article – don’t ya just lurrve it when a HYPOCRITE gets exposed?! Not that being gay is in itself anything to be ‘exposed’ about (mind you, I live in a free thinking Western society – not sure about Indianapolis!

  23. Mumbo Jumbo 25 Aug 2011, 7:37pm

    “I am an in shape….5’8″…170 lbs”

    Pear shape.

  24. Oh Who Cares 25 Aug 2011, 8:22pm

    Nasty homophobic politician. Nasty thiefing rentboy. Both as vile as one another.

  25. Nancy pelosi and their committe should have this twissteed hippocrite and biggoted hippocrite, who also hurt his familiey resign , just like wang wui and weiner, the man coursed a high school boy to a hotel under false pretences, and then tried to sexually assualt him when he came out of the bathroom naked, these types of wicked men who have wives and children constantly hurt and devasted and the victum who said he was scarred at one point when he found out what the wicked senator really wanted and was trying to do, this nation politicians, that are wicked and abusive and this was a child young colored boy, the naacp should have filed on this man , and the man is a racist and bigot, but yet seeks out litle boys behind his wifes back , the white house and nancy should have him resigned immediattley, he has done worse as the other men with sexaully harrassing and assaulting young women and boys, he needs to be removed now, and start cleaning house like edwards said , there are others

  26. Please let there be pics of this joker floating around in cyberspace, preferably in a sling please;-)

  27. Hinkle’s story sounds to me very much like that place in east London…

    Bow Locks.

    Another closeted self-loathin homosexual caught with his pants down! Nowadays many of us can freely admit to being gay without many problems. It is not just celebrities but everyday ordinary people stating their sexuality on television or in the media. It is time that those closeted gays stop hiding behind anti-gay propaganda and come out and join us. Fred Phelps, Robert Mugabe etc take note!

  29. Spanner1960 26 Aug 2011, 9:45am

    Playing Devil’s advocate here, the guy was born just after the war, in a deeply homophobic country, and probably through peer pressure has had to suppress his gay feelings all his life, and conform to what the society around him demanded.

    Had he wanted to “come out” at the time, it would have not only been dangerous, but also put pay to any political career he may have had. Before everyone jumps on the “self loathing hypocrite” bandwagon, just take a moment to consider what you might have done had you been in his shoes.
    I by no means condone his actions, but just because someone voted against gay marriage does not make them “anti-gay” or homophobic. He is simply voicing what the majority of his constituents and his party demand. had he gone against the grain, he would have almost certainly lost his seat and disappeared into obscurity.
    Rent boys are a necessary evil, and far better for him to have a discreet affair than be seen publicly trying to fulfil his natural sexual urges.

    1. “had he gone against the grain, he would have almost certainly lost his seat and disappeared into obscurity”

      There are worse things than disappearing into obscurity, such as sinking into the infamy and public betrayal – of his wife as well as gay people – in which he now finds himself…

      There is a difference between not being a hero on the one hand, and actively collaborating with oppression. Many far older than him have shown much more integrity and dignity.

      1. Spanner1960 26 Aug 2011, 3:32pm

        I lived into my 30’s with a girl before I ever came to the realisation I was gay. Sometimes it’s not an obvious smack-in-the-mouth epiphany that many have, sometimes it takes years to draw the conclusion that has been staring you in the face all your life.

        1. While possibly pitiable, it still doesn’t justify hypocrisy, does it?

  30. “Hinkle claims he is not gay and can’t explain why he set up the meeting.”
    Funny isn’t it, these inexplicable actions people suddenly make?

    1. He also said he did it for a joke, you know, one of those elaborate expensive jokes where you risk your career and your marriage by making yourself the punchline.

    2. Spanner1960 26 Aug 2011, 3:35pm

      It’s obvious he is trying to protect himself. We all know what is going on here, and if he were to openly admit to to his sexuality, his entire life, family and career would crash down in front of him. Can you not forgive the man for trying to prevent that happening?

      1. Not only that, some people are actually bisexual, possibly more than are 100% gay or straight. Are bisexual people expected to declare for one or the other as if they were casting a vote in a first past the post election and then cease being bisexual?
        If he is bisexual but only indulges his bisexuality occasionally then he can say with some honesty that he is not gay.

        That doesn’t of course excuse his political stance on gay issues. But that is a seperate issue I maintain.

        1. Jock S. Trap 27 Aug 2011, 9:00am

          Excellent comment, Ray and a very good point.

          Personally I think if everyone was honest about themselves, there would be more Bisexuals than even heterosexuals.

      2. “Can you not forgive the man for trying to prevent that happening?”
        Self-serving behaviour may be predictable, that doesn’t make it attractive, appealing or sympathetic. Did you feel equally generous to, say, the UK politicians who were caught out in the expenses scandal?

        1. Jock S. Trap 27 Aug 2011, 8:58am

          ““Can you not forgive the man for trying to prevent that happening?””

          Indeed Rehan.

          Also why do I have to forgive someone for deliberately disrespecting LGBTQ people at every opportunanity then is caught with his trousers down.

          I’m all for people keeping quiet about their sexuality unless they happen to damage the community they hide from.

  31. Spanner1960, just because a politician must vote according to the wishes of his or her constituents, doesn’t necessarily make those wishes are right. Using that argument would have probably stopped American blacks getting their civil rights if the wishes of the majority had opposed them.

    Voting againt the rights of gays while denying what he was doing in a hotel room with only a towel wrapped around him and then exposing his bits to the young man IS anti-gay and IS about self-loathing. Stop acting as an apologist for him. This is August 2011, not 1950. Homosexuality was decriminalised in the early 60s in America. There is NO excuse for what he did and lying about who he really is. Soliciting sex from someone of the same gender isn’t straight, end of. Voting to ban gays marrying IS antigay whether one is straight or gay. There is such a thing as a conscience, clearly this man has none, or any closet case for that matter.

    1. Spanner1960 26 Aug 2011, 4:19pm

      Robert: Like I pointed out, I am only acting as Devil’s advocate here and attempting to show the other side of the coin. This may well be 2011, but many people are still very much “old school”, along with their associated values; the chances are they will never change. It is said that once you hit 30, your opinions and values are set in stone. It is up to the new generations coming up behind them to change things, hopefully for the better.
      On a personal note, although I am in a CP and support gay marriage, I do not support gay adoption or blood donation. That is my personal standpoint. That does not make me anti-gay or homophobic, it simply means my views differ from other people’s. So many people demand “democracy”, but only when it supports their viewpoint. Just because the majority demand something does not necessarily mean that that is the right way to go.

      1. You can oppose gay adoption and blood donation an NOT be homophobic if you can point to sound empirical evidence that there are more measurably and objectively negative outcomes associated with adoption and blood donation by gays than by other groups. There isn’t. See the problem?

      2. You can oppose gay adoption and blood donation an NOT be homophobic if you can
        point to sound empirical evidence that there are more measurably and objectively
        negative outcomes associated with adoption and blood donation by gays than by other
        groups. There isn’t. See the problem?

  32. ….doesn’t necessarily mean those wishes are right”…I meant to have said.

  33. he meets a teenage male
    sugar daddy
    he his a male
    he wants to have a good time
    Playing DOMINOES
    he is not gay
    who his he taking us for IDIOTS
    you are a big lie caught with your pants down you are a disgrace without Balls

    1. He may be bisexual? Quite a few people are?

    2. Hey, don’t go bashing domino, it’s an amazing game ! Everytime I want to play domino I hire a tranny hooker to play with me and we play for hours !

  34. Typical hypocrite! condemns others and then when he gets caught expects not to be judged or condemned and/or worthy even of some sympathy!. Sounds like his wife might have more insight when he alludes anyone that knows her knows she would not keep any of his mistakes quiet! How many others/?
