Fresh off the heels of his totally awkward interview about that time he sexted with a 17-year-old Catholic school boy, Republican Mike Yenni has found himself at the center of yet another lurid scandal. This time it involves even more sexts, more men, an alleged extortion plot, a retired hypnotist, and a lie detector test.

The scandal dates back to 2010, when Yenni was the victim of an alleged extortion plot during his campaign to be mayor of Kenner, Louisiana.
At the time, Yenni was in his early 30s and working as the city’s administrative officer. During his mayoral campaign, his opponent, Louis Congemi, got his hands on some pretty racy texts the young politician had sent to not one, not two, no three, but eight different men (and one woman) using a taxpayer funded BlackBerry.
Congemi allegedly threatened to leak the texts to the press if Yenni didn’t immediately drop out of the race. That’s when the FBI swooped in. Yenni stayed in the race and ultimately won the election.

Now, WWL-TV in New Orleans has confirmed with three of the eight men who Yenni sexted that the messages were, indeed, authentic. Not only that, but the station has also confirmed that Yenni took a lie-detector test to convince his then-girlfriend-now-wife Michelle and her family that he was faithful and, presumably, heterosexual, as well. Apparently she wanted confirmation before tying the knot.
Oh, but it gets even weirder. Because in addition to all that, certified polygraphist Ronnie Lauland has told WWL-TV that he personally administered the voice-stress analysis test to Yenni six years ago. At the time, Lauland was a 78-year-old retired hypnotherapist and former NOPD police officer. Interestingly, after Yenni was elected mayor, Lauland scored a job working as a code inspector for the city.
Lauland insists he got the job after responding to a post on Craigslist, and that there wasn’t any sort of quid pro quo thing involved. But some people beg to differ. At least one source says Yenni instructed the city’s personnel office to hire Lauland and that he signed the man’s official notice of employment.

Per usual, Yenni is remaining pretty tight-lipped about everything. When WWL-TV chased him down for an interview outside his office, he ran for the safety of an elevator and said he had “already talked to a reporter.” Watch the awkward encounter HERE.

We’re making this guy a STAR!
And he very well could have passed the test considering that many narcissistic gay men delude themselves into thinking they’re not inherently homosexual because they have regular sex and relationships with (aka the Nico Tortorella’s of the world).
His wife is either smart as hell or dumb as hell. If it gets to the point where a lie detector test is needed, you already have your answers, lady. Of course, he’s just your garden variety closet case who hasn’t caught up to technology and the age of “everyone’s looking at you”, so his stupidity is just there for all to see.
If Mike Yenni likes dirty talk, that’s his right. It’s consenting, isn’t it?
It’s hilarious how the gay community uses the idea of consent to justify all sorts of promiscuous behavior and yet here we have the gay media attacking somebody who talks dirty with consenting adults.
You really are hypocritical gays, aren’t you?
@Donston: Why should Mike Yenni have to submit to identity politics? He is entitled to make his own choices in regards to his identity.
Yenni is entitled to be turned on by mainly women. Are you jealous?
@Donston: That’s what I was thinking too. Apparently he wasn’t going to take any chances though.
I’m sure some or most were underaged too. The 17 yo said he wanted him to introduce him to his friends.
@Brian: A real man wouldn’t have to submit to a polygraph test to prove his heterosexuality. In any case actions speak louder than polygraph tests.
Now he can sext teen boys and suck dick and not have to bear the shame of being gay. When his wife finds sexts of naked boys on his iphone she can be assured that it’s all just innocent heterosexual fun.
Maybe he’s Greek? How’s that Brian?
Sounds like the wife is just as delusional as he is. If it gets to the point of needing a lie detector test wouldn’t you just cut and run?
@Jack Meoff: I can understand that a liberal woman would cut and run. Liberal women are very homophobic towards any sign of male homosexual desire in the men they date or marry.
Mike Yenni’s wife impresses me because she’s a good conservative woman who understands that Mike’s alleged sexting with men is a simple form of male recreation and not a defining identity. Thank goodness there are good conservative women like her around.
Good conservative women are far more tolerant than liberal women.
Yenni identifies as bisexual, that’s it, game over. He just hasn’t read the memo, that everyone knows it. Remember folks, Brian is a plant to stir up trouble. Yeah, he’s just here to piss you off, don’t fall for it. If you feed the trolls by engaging them, they keep com’in back. Just a heads up.
Mike Yenni and Aaron Schock would make a cute couple. Aaron is probably way too old for Yenni though.
Kind of reminds me of David Vitter. Especially the eyes: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2015/11/09/22/2E47B94400000578-3310667-image-a-5_1447109844397.jpg
Jeez just let it both of their actions were consensual. That boy clearly had a crush on him
Yeah, that’s called bisexuality.
It’s the B part of the whole lgbt thing.
Look it up.
@Jack Meoff: My sentiments exactly. She sounds like a rose colored glasses Stepford android. She definitely needs an in shop tune up unless: she knew it all along and decided to take the ride anyway. That’s pretty typical with these types of scenes.
@Xzamilloh: Watch the video with her. She’s either very deluded or just hoping they can pray the gay away so that she can have a seemingly “straight” Catholic husband and father of her kids. It was painful watching them interviewed together. He seems like more an idiot than she is by several miles.
What hasn’t been said is that few people are 100% straight or Gay or whatever. Considering how much social, religious and other kinds of pressures there are to conform, it is amazing more people aren’t like Yenni. Wanting it all. He may indeed just like to talk dirty, or look at photos, who knows? His wife doesn’t have to be an android to acknowledge few people are perfect spouses. Including herself.
