News He’s Not Gay

Richard Curtis, an anti-gay Washington state representative, caught up in extortion investigation—police believe he may have been victimized by a male prostitute—issues the big denial.
A Spokane TV station, KREM, reported on its Web site that Curtis and the man had a sexual encounter and were seen together at various spots around the city. Curtis was in the city for a retreat with other Republican lawmakers to craft strategy for the upcoming legislative session.
Curtis talked briefly with Columbian Editor Lou Brancaccio at about 4 p.m. Monday and denied reports of a sexual relationship.
“I am not gay,” he told Brancaccio. “I have not had sex with a guy.”
There are still lots of of unanswered questions—like, “If you’re not gay, how come your mustache is?” “What does a male prostitute working in Spokane look like?” And, of course, “Why would anyone attempt to extort a Washington state representative?” Being a state rep is a part-time job, and the pay is awful. Curtis may or may not have been sitting on dick, but he’s definitely not sitting on any money.
