The “family values” Republican House Majority leader in Indiana resigned suddenly Tuesday after he managed to text his entire contacts list a video of himself in a sexually compromised position with someone other than his wife.
Now-former Representative Jud McMillin has built a political career as a social conservative. He’s one of the guys who shouts about protecting “the integrity of the institution of marriage,” and cosponsored his state’s religious freedom law.
And like we’ve said a hundred times before, anyone spewing that much nonsense is almost guaranteed to be living a private life reflecting a decidedly different moral compass.
After he realized who’d received the message (and we can only image the breadth of a right-wing politician’s cell phone), he sent a Hail Mary note that read, “phone was stolen in Canada and out of my control for about 24 hours. I have just been able to reactivate it under my control. Please disregard any messages you received recently. I am truly sorry for anything offensive you may have received.”
Sure, blame Canada. And pay no attention to the gyrating liar on your screen!
Well, that plan failed, and one more hypocrite bites the dust. Though, judging by this 2011 Bilerico Project takedown on Jud, the boy’s had problems for quite a while.
McMillin then decided to complete the “blithering conservative caught with his pants down” charade by resigning with a statement that read the “time is right for me to pass the torch and spend more time with my family.”
It would be satisfying if it wasn’t so predictable.
