Anti-gay senator told to step down after ‘sex video’ found on his work laptop

Joseph McCormick July 30, 2016

A Republican state senator has learned the hard way about being too concerned with what other people do in their bedroom, and looks set to resign after a video of him having sex was found on his work computer.

Nebraska Republican state senator Bill Kintner faces calls to resign from many, including the governor of his state, after the video was found.

It has not been revealed the nature of the “sexually explicit video involving Kintner”.

The married senator is anti-LGBT, anti-abortion and has been accused of racism.

It has been reported that Kintner alerted the Nebraska State Patrol after he fell for “what he believed to be a potential internet scam that occurred while the senator was in Massachusetts using his state computer,” said a State Patrol spokesman on Friday.

Republican Governor Pete Ricketts is among those calling for the senator to resign “if the allegations were true,” saying he had spoken to him on the phone.

“Due to the ongoing investigation of this issue, I have been unable to say anything publicly,” the governor said in a statement.

“If the allegations are true, Senator Kintner needs to resign.”

The case has been handed over to the ethics watchdog group The Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission.

The Commission is expected to come back with an answer on the case on 5 August.

Kintner is married to the governor’s chief policy advisor, Lauren Kintner.

A strong opponent of same-sex marriage, the senator is reported to have “loudly opposed same-sex marriage, gay adoption, and transgender rights. He has also publicly declared that Christians should let gays know their business isn’t wanted by providing them with bad service.”

He has also been accused of racism, and was previously strongly criticised for posting a photo of a beheaded woman to show his support for the death penalty.
