News The Young Repredators

Wonkette has some more details about Glenn Murphy, the newly-elected chair of the Young Republican National Federation who resigned yesterday after a police report detailing Murphy’s sexual assault of another Young Republican emerged. The Young Republicans have scrubbed Murphy from their website, but Google has preserved Murphy for posterity.
Murphy—who, as a political adviser, urged GOP candidates to attack gay marriage—claims that the blowjob he was caught giving the unconscious young man was completely consensual. So for those of you keeping score at home: anti-gay closet cases blowjobs to sleeping young men? Good sex. Out gay people getting married? Good wedge issue.
And there’s more…
Glenn was charged with Sexual Battery for doing this exact same thing in 1998 (this victim’s girlfriend was in the same room!). So he was, of course, the natural choice to head the Young Republicans.
And you gotta love the quote Murphy gave the Jeffersonville News and Tribune after his election last month: “I will essentially be the mouthpiece and effective leader for the tens of thousands of Young Republicans, 18 to 40, across the country.”
