Washington Post reports:
On a fall evening two years ago, donors gathered during a conference at a Ritz-Carlton hotel near Washington to raise funds for a 31-year-old candidate for the Ohio legislature who was a rising star in evangelical politics.
Hours later, upstairs in a hotel guest room, an 18-year-old college student who had come to the event with his parents said the candidate unzipped his pants and fondled him in the middle of the night. The frightened teenager fled the room and told his mother and stepfather, who demanded action from the head of the organization hosting the conference.
“If we endorse these types of individuals, then it would seem our whole weekend together was nothing more than a charade,” the stepfather wrote to Tony Perkins, president of the Council for National Policy.
“Trust me . . . this will not be ignored nor swept aside,” replied Perkins, who also heads the Family Research Council, a prominent evangelical activist group. “It will be dealt with swiftly, but with prudence.”
And guess who that “31-year-old candidate for the Ohio legislature who was a rising star in evangelical politics”?
Thats right! Wes
GoodHEAD Goodman the Ohio GOP State Rep who consistently touted his faith and conservative values, and resigned late Tuesday after being confronted with evidence of him having hot and tawdy gay sex in hie Statehouse office last Tuesday.
From the letter posted below from Perkins to Goodman it appears that they entered some kind of ex-gay therapy agreement and that Perkins had told Goodman not to run for office until his problem had been dealt with.
