Bob "Blowjob" Allen’s appeal in his sexual solicitation case is denied by the Brevard County Circuit Court
The disgraced and closeted anti-gay Florida Republican state legislator was sentenced to six months of probation and resigned from the state legislature after he was convicted of offering an undercover male police officer twenty bucks to perform oral sex.& ; The former co-chairman of the John McCain continues to maintains his innocence and his heterosexuality.
His attorney, Greg Eisenmenger, argued in the appeals hearing in May that Allen wasn’t charged under the right statute, saying that in order for Allen to be guilty of solicitation, he would have had to request money and sex from the officer. Eisenmenger said it was the officer who suggested “sex for money.”
Prosecutor Pat Whitaker countered that the statute under which Allen was charged also prohibits inducing people into prostitution. He said Allen’s actions show he induced the officer into having “sex for hire” by agreeing to pay.
Bob Allen was voted the Tampa Police Union's 2007 Lawmaker of the Year and sponsored numerous bills related to internet and public sex crimes. Allen, who is married with children, always voted against gay rights legislation ... just like fellow closeted, anti-gay latrine queen Larry Craig.
Allen now has the option to appeal to the 5th District Court of Appeals, and, he probably should. The oral arguments should be very colorful. Gotta love those family values. Closeted, anti-gay racist Republicans are really the gift that keeps on giving.
