Can you believe it? Yet another conservative sex scandal!? Just when we were getting over cross-dressing Richard Curtis‘ resignation comes news of Catholic principal Paul Schum hustling his junk in fishnets.
Via Smoking Gun:
Meet Paul Schum. The Kentucky man, a Catholic school principal, is facing a prostitution charge after Louisville police found him dressed like a woman and loitering in an alley Tuesday night. According to a criminal citation, a copy of which you’ll find here, Schum, 50, was wearing fishnet stockings, fake breasts, and “all black leather” when officers discovered him “loitering in high drug trafficking and prostitution area.” The citation notes that Schum, who heads Bethlehem High School, had “no reason for why he was in alley…dressed up in women’s leather other than for prostitution.” Schum, now on paid leave from his school post, is due in court on November 27 to answer a misdemeanor charge of loitering for the intent of prostitution.
We wonder what anti-gay Cardinal JesÃºs LÃ³pez RodrÃguez would have to say about this one. Or, better yet, Catholic League leader Bill Donohue.
