Anti-Gay GOP State Sen. Got DUI After Leaving Gay Nightclub

From the HuffPost:

Early Wednesday morning, State Sen. Roy Ashburn (R-Calif.) was pulled over and arrested for drunk driving. Sources report that Ashburn — a fierce opponent of gay rights — was driving drunk after leaving a gay nightclub; when the officer stopped the state-issued vehicle, there was an unidentified man in the passenger seat of the car.

Ashburn has issued an apology for the incident:

  • Vlad the Impala

    Should that be an ‘h’ in his surname or should it be another ‘s’?

    • Mike K

      HA! Good one!

  • WordyGrrl

    And in just a few days, he’ll blame it all on Demon Rum and enter rehab.

    “Teh alcohol! It’s gay-making!”

    • Vlad the Impala

      Alcohol causes teh gay:

      “I get so used to putting a bottle in my mouth that I don’t notice when it gets replaced by a penis…”

  • Angry Sam

    Why can’t you monsters let him loathe himself in peace?

  • yram

    waaaa…call the wambulance .

  • Suddenly Don Knott’s voice pierces the silence, “well, surprise, surprise, surprise…”

    It Gets So Much Worse…

  • Dan (the Real one)

    Maybe they were both going to take a pee at a rest stop or something.

  • Chris

    Almost like that gay Austrian Nazi Haider who left a gay bar and crashed his sedan killing himself he was so drunk. Unfortunately this prick lived.

  • He represents the town I grew up in – but is loathed as somehow Bakersefield over a hundred miles away over a mountain range knows what my little desert community needs. The local paper forums are abuzz with people wanting him gone and someone more from the area to represent them, not a oil town guy.

  • Marlea

    Maybe he was going to do “undercover” work

  • mrclam

    Are there any NON-gays trying to oppose gay rights?

    Also, @Danno: I think it was Gomer Pyle who used to say “Surprise, surprise, etc.”

  • Barbwire

    I just love it when these hypocrites are exposed. Why are they always Republicans? (Rhetorical question)
