An anti-gay Kentucky principal who in 2009 who tried to ban books with “homosexual content” from his high school was arrested Tuesday on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.
Todd Wilson, the principal of the Clark County Area Technology Center, located at the George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester, Kentucky, was arrested by state troopers after a complaint saying they saw Wilson give child pornography to another person.
Kentucky State Trooper said Wilson had about 15 images of child pornography, which resulted in 15 counts of distribution of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor, and another 15 counts of possessing matter portraying sexual performance by a minor.
In 2009, when Wilson was the principal of Montgomery County High School, he came under fire for banning a number of books from the classroom for “homosexual content.”
The controversy was over a number of contemporary LGBT young-adult books being taught next to classic works like Beowulf.
The Montgomery County High School administration, backed Wilson and banned the books.
Moore police have recommended three prostitution-related charges against State Sen. Ralph Shortey. The charges include: soliciting prostitution of a minor, prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church and transporting for the purpose of prostitution. Police say the investigation started after a man was found in a motel room with an underage boy. Employees at the Motel 8 in Moore say a person by the name of Ralph Allen Shortey checked in shortly after midnight March 9, and police arrived about 30 minutes later.
Pam Pollard with the Oklahoma Republican Party released the following statement: “The Oklahoma Republican Party takes all accusations against elected officials seriously, especially when the welfare of a minor is involved. We have reached out to Senator Shortey for comment and have not heard back from him at this time. We await the report from law enforcement on whether charges will be filed.” The Senate has filed a resolution to impose punishment on Shortey for disorderly behavior. It passed with a 42-0 vote.
Shortey was the Oklahoma state campaign chair for Trump during the primaries and was himself endorsed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

I want to apologize to all the people I may have offended because of my comments on having a Gay or Bisexual Bachelor. The comment was taken out of context. If you listen to the entire interview, there’s nothing but respect for Gay people and their families. I have many gay friends and one of my closest friends who’s like a brother has been a constant in my life especially during the past 5 months. The word pervert was not what I meant to say and I am very sorry about it. Everyone knows English is my second language and my vocabulary is not as broad as it is in Spanish and, because of this, sometimes I use the wrong words to express myself. What I meant to say was that gay people are more affectionate and intense and for a segment of the TV audience this would be too racy to accept. The show is very racy as it is and I don’t let my 5 year old daughter watch it. Once again, I’m sorry for how my words were taken. I would never disrespect anyone.”

So here we have Juan Pablo blaming English being his second language, his comments being taken out of context (even though there is audio), and or course stating that he has “gay friends” to get out of it. One has to wonder what context J.P.G. actually meant to use the word “pervert?” in.
Of course this apology only happened after GLAAD possibly smelling money from ABC reached and some free publicity reached out to J.P.G. and then reported his apology on their website which is totally different than the apology above that Juan Pablo Galavis posted on his Facebook page.
“I have heard from many gay Latinos today who are hurt because of what I said and I apologize. I know gay parents and I support them and their families. They are good parents and loving families. I am a father and I know the feel of being a father, why wouldn’t I want my gay friends to also be happy parents? I also want gay and lesbian youth to know that it is fine to be who you are. Gay or straight, Black or White, Latin or American, what matters here is to respect who we are. I look forward to meeting with gay and lesbian families as well as Monica and Wilson from GLAAD. Gay and lesbian people, and the children they are raising, wrongfully face discrimination and I want them to know that I’m on their side.”
Whats really interesting is if you read the Facebook apology and GLAAD’s version even though they are different don’t even sound like the same person wrote them. Do they?
Did GLAAD help write this apology specifically for their website and release?
Of course Juan Pablo will be meeting in Los Angeles this week with Monica Trasandes, a leads GLAAD’s Latino and Spanish-Language Media Program, and GLAAD’s Wilson Cruz who never met a piece of publicity he didn’t like.
