|Wonkette says,"This may come as a shock, but a prominent anti-homosexual Republican attorney general has apparently been caught having homosexual intercourse with his homosexual gay male assistant. Bonus: The dude’s wife caught him, in their bed. This is the rumor that the AG’s office has officially denied, so now of course everybody is spilling the sordid details."|
The Attorney General in question is Troy King, who, of course, is only interested in outlawing homosexuality and sex toys. His gay lover is either a college “buddy,” or a very young youngster and “Homecoming King” from Troy University. What are the odds of a dude named Troy King getting caught in bed with a Homecoming King from Troy University?
Rumors Swirl On Possible Alabama AG Troy King Gay Sex Scandal, Possible Resignation
The rumor mill in Montgomery is swirling of news of a potential resignation by Republican Attorney General Troy King, amid rumors that he was caught by his wife having sex with a male aide and subsequently banished from his home by his wife. King, a potential GOP frontrunner for Governor in 2010, succeeded Bill Pryor, one of George W. Bush’s most controversial judicial nominees. In addition, King was also an early endorser of John McCain.
A spokesperson for Alabama Governor Bob Riley denied that Attorney General Troy King is preparing to resign in the wake of a massive rumor campaign that has yet to be fully confirmed. The word is, according to multiple sources in Montgomery and elsewhere, that King was recently caught by his wife in a gay affair with a male aide and banished from his home.
According to Tara Hutchison in the executive office of the governor they have heard of no plans in the works for King’s resignation. She said she had not heard that he had been kicked out of his home because of a gay affair.
Governor Bob Riley’s press office refused to return multiple phone calls from this independent press outlet even though some sources accuse Riley of perpetrating the leak. The attorney general’s press office also declined to return phone calls seeking comment.
The Locust Fork News and Journal heard about this a couple of weeks ago from a Montgomery lawyer, and have had numerous contacts with people trying to confirm the truth of the rumor.
I just heard from a very reliable source that Troy Boy is resigning as Attorney General. No report of King’s official reason, but the unofficial reason almost certainly involves the rumors swirling around Montgomery that he was recently caught in embarassing misconduct. The resignation may be enough to keep King’s personal life out of the papers, but I don’t look for him to run for governor in 2010.

|it seems that most people with a public strong anti gay position are gay themselves. i guess they think that by crusading against homosexuality is a good way to deflect suspicions of their own sexuality (i.e. good cover). sad and pathetic but true.|

|Not surprising. A study several years ago at a university in Georgia proved that 70% of homophobic men are physically aroused by gay porn, versus 20% for the non-homophobic population.|
Using this tidbit, I've confronted two guys that loved throwing around gay slurs around; both admitted to cross dressing and "experimenting with guys." It's amazing to watch. Try it some time with your favorite homophobe.

|This guy ..... sheesh.|
Funny that people who are so outspoken against something are usually the ones guilty of doing it. I am SO glad I don't live in Alabama anymore!

|So let me get this straight.. The AG, who is a Republican, who has pushed to ban sex toys in the state, was caught with a male in bed. |
Why does the Republican Party have the most hypocrites??? I mean, the Republicans can keep them and all, but geesh... there coming out of the wood work (or closet.)

|This is the greatest news I have heard yet! There is a God and he is sick of his people ...he he he okay he is sick the sheeple herders that are liars. Anyway, I hope this gets proven, drug out in public, through a long and painfully embarrassing national news story, complete with is wife crying, sexual assault charges, and sodomy charges. I don't hate gay guys, I hate homophobes that can't just accept their friggin gay!|

|Wow - don't be so surprised|

|Wow, it's pretty easy. Until 1972, the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association both considered homosexuality as a mental illness. Until the Stonewall riots of 1969, it was illegal to serve alcohol to a gay person. Many people from that era have a very difficult time coming out of the closet. Their religion, politics, and self-loathing prevent them from enjoying the God-given life they deserve as an openly gay man. So, they become hyper anti-gay, thinking its the perfect way to hide their own homosexuality.|
It's very sad. Fortunately, as more people come out as gay and lesbian, public perception has changed enormously, even from a few years ago. People who are in their 20's and 30's have a very difficult time understanding what all the fuss is about being gay. That's a wonderful thing. It's sad those in the religious and political right can't get over their own prejudice. It will be a great day when they do, for everyone's sake, especially their own.
|Just Another Republican Hypocrite|

|This is yet another example of Republican hypocrisy that defines the party itself. This self-richeous a-hole fought so vocally against gays, fought vigorously against selling sex toys in Alabama (c'mon now, in our own bedrooms, for goodness sake - what possible harm could that do except subract from sales tax revenue!) yet is caught in HIS OWN MARRIAGE BED having sex with another man - it couldn't have been better written and more ironic than had a soap opera writer penned it! Yet the mindless religious rightests adored the ground he walked on and most certainly would have paid millions to support his race for governor in 2010. What has our world come to people??!!|

|This kind of thing always comes up around elections. I know he isn't up for anything this year, but he is a republican who endorses McCain. I live in Troy, am still involved with the university, and have heard nothing about this. The only way you can be sure of something like this these days is if you have photos of him with his weiner where the sun don't shine....and even then it may have been Photo Shopped.|
|Its about time|

|Another self rightous SOB has been nailed. He put Alabama on the "map" with the sex toy ban, and now this. Being gay myself, it does not supprise me to see someone as vocal as King against gays, turn out to be a closet case. It's just sad that someone with that sorta influence, could not put his efforts to better use. Oh, and by the way, to the poster that mentioned "SODOMY" charges.. wake up, Sodomy is not illegel between consenting adults.. Hasn't been in several years now.!|
|I agree with JEFF|

|It IS True!|

|What Wonkette has been saying is true. It is all over Montgomery, AL that this is NOT the first time he has been caught. The first time was in his SUV and was covered up by the police. The second time is what everyone is talking about. He was caught by his wife in his own bed making out with the homecoming king from Troy University. His name is John Godwin.|
This information comes from an executive assistant to a very high ranking official in the Alabama Government.
|Yea, he is Bi/Gay|

|My close friend in Montgomery told me tonight, that this particular story on Troy King is not true. However, he said that Troy had several incidents of gay activities since college....He went on to say that this latest story on him was a political attack and at the same time saying they were motivated statements based on his past homosexual activities.|
So, it looks like we have another Republican in the closet, but his activities are sneaking out???

|There was an article in the Birmingham News today discussing how much Troy King is paying his "boy". Nine months ago, boy Godwin started as an intern making $10 an hour, without a degree or experience in law. Now his title is chief aide and he makes $54,000 a year. The article also says that Godwin's job "requires" him to travel with Troy King. Easy for those late-night get togethers?|
|Stop rumor milling|

|I have not seen this confirmed in any major media outlets, nor any smaller local news media in Alabama. It has not yet appeared on his Wikipedia page, and the talk page discusses failure to find any factual evidence.|
It's a rumor. Seeing as things like this keep happening to republicans, it's a pretty believable rumor. But a rumor nonetheless.

|Typical f*cking christian/republican hypocrite.|
|Why so gullible?|
Posted by Inquirer on 2009-01-11 14:25:51
|Why are so many people so quick to believe this? Not saying it's not true. Just curious why this story, and most other news stories, are always readily gobbled up by the public as TRUTH. Could you at least try to think?|
Due to this we get treated to comments like, "Typical f*cking christian/republican hypocrite."
I lose a little faith in humanity when I see comments like that. These droppings are on EVERY message board and comment section of any web page having to do with a "Christian" politician screwing up; as if a politician who claims to be a Christian actually has to be. It's funny (not really) how people know these politicians are full of sh*t, but will still pick and chose what they want to believe from them. Anyway, atheists and hardcore liberals have been eating this BS up for hundreds of years and still haven't realized how lame of an argument it is. Sadly, most Christians haven't either.
If you keep believing lies just because they suit your wants and desires, your whole life becomes exactly that...a giant lie. And you show the world your stupidity every time you regurgitate it.

Posted by Robert on 2009-03-26 06:59:05
|The reason the republican party has so many hypocrites. It is because the rich and greedy who control them won't put them in a position where they can betray them unless they have something to blackmail them with and hence be able to control them. The rich and greedy purposefully seek them out, professional corrupt politicians who believe in nothing, who shameless pull the mantle of Christianity about to cloak their venal, greedy, self serving nature.|
