GOP Struggles With McCain's Florida Campaign Co-Chair's Oral Sex Bust, Vitter's Diaper Fetish

"I'm not in anyway associated with that they are saying, this is disgusting." -- Florida Rep. Bob Allen on the "very big misunderstanding" and "gross mistake" of his arrest at a Titusville park after asking a male undercover cop if Allen could blow him for $20

UPDATE: Scott from Reality Cubed passed Bob Allen's police report along, from Broward for Change. It's priceless; I'm not sure where the misunderstanding is in the report. Click to enlarge.

Joe.My.God has been following the political antics of Rep. Allen for a while; I'll share just one kicker from his pad.
Laugh #1: Rep. Allen is the author of failed Florida House Bill #1475, the "Lewd and Lecivious Behavior Act" which would have made public masturbation in the presence of another adult illegal, whether the other adult consented or not. Florida statutes already cover such behavior for when a minor is present and the bill died in committee in two months ago. I'm pretty sure Rep. Allen was violating #1475 when he offered to blow that cop, doncha think? Lucky for him it didn't pass!
Surf over and read the rest (protect your keyboards from spewage).

Also, Mike Rogers over at PageOneQ reports on Allen's voting record and ties to McCain:
Bob Allen (R) was appointed Florida co-Chairman of the McCain campaign in March. At the time, McCain said he was proud of the support he received from Allen and that Allen and his three co-chairs were "respected leaders in their communities and have real experience wrestling with the important issues of our day."
... PageOneQ has obtained information regarding Allen's voting record and ratings by advocacy organizations. Between 2003 and 2006 Allen voted with the Christian Coalition over 90% of the time. Allen has been endorsed by the Florida Right to Life Committee and this year he voted to impose a 24-hour waiting period on third-trimester abortions.
I had some Freeper reaction to Allen's arrest, but the free speech advocates at Free Republic pulled the thread.
