Portland Mayor Sam Adams’ Ex-Boy Toy Beau Breedlove Joins The Effort to Oust Him

From lovers to exes to enemies: Beau Breedlove is joining the recall effort against one-time paramour Sam Adams, the Portland mayor.


With the first effort to kick Adams out of office (because he lied to officials about his relationship with Breedlove during the election), led by Jasun Wurster, a failure, a second wave of uproar is three week’s away from a required deadline, on April 20, to submit 32,183 valid signatures from Portland residents. So far, they’ve got just 10-15,000 names jotted down. Will involvement from budding memoirist Breedlove (pictured above, in the sunglasses) help spike interest?

Well it’s certainly the heartiest endorsement the project can get.

Among the pro-recall group was Beau Breedlove, the former legislative intern whose relationship with Adams in 2005 sparked the scandal. Adams denied the relationship when rumors surfaced in 2007, while he was running for mayor. Breedlove, who is volunteering with the recall campaign, said in an interview after the rally that other gays and lesbians have chastised him for backing the recall of the city’s first openly gay mayor. Breedlove said that’s precisely why Adams should step down. “He should hold himself to a much higher standard than any other politician, because he’s not just representing the city of Portland,” he said. “He’s representing the GLBTQ community in a new way they haven’t been represented before.”

Breedlove said he and Adams kissed before he turned 18 but didn’t have sex until after he turned 18, which is the age of consent. Adams has maintained that no sexual contact took place before Breedlove turned 18. Adams was 42 at the time. The attorney general’s office declined to prosecute Adams, citing lack of evidence. “In reality, he was the one who was in his 40s and he was the adult in the situation. I never felt like a victim until the end, when he continued to lie and threw me under the bus,” Breedlove said Thursday.

Breedlove said he and Adams have had no contact since the attorney general’s investigation. “I have no interest in talking to him again, ever.”

So, the original effort to recall Adams was because he supposedly lied about Breedlove’s age when they first had sex? And even Breedlove says he was over 18 when it happened?

Sort of. The original recall push was tied to Adams lying about having any romantic affair with Breedlove, and pressuring him to lie about it to investigators.

    Wanky at best….

    Breedlove wants attention.

    This is so pointless.

  • Recall Curious

    Were any of the Sam Adams recalls about suppressing the rights of the GLBT community?

  • terrwill

    Looks like someone didn’t get their allowance money……….

  • Ed

    It looks like that modeling / porn career didn’t go very well for poor Beau.

  • DR


    This kid is an attention whore. That’s it. He has a lot of nerve turning around at the 11th hour claiming that he’s a victim. Whatever I think of Sam Adam’s actions, he was investigated, cleared, and it’s done. And I seem to recall that Beau wasn’t all that eager to testify against Sam. Maybe he went back hoping Sugar Daddy would take him back now that the dust settled and got annoyed when he didn’t?

  • Bryce

    This is so stupid. I live around Portland and find the recall effort idiotic. They tried once and it failed. The effort has 3 weeks to get 20,000 signatures. In like 9 weeks they have got 10,000. So I don’t see it working. As for Beau he is just wanting attention. He showed back up suddenly calling foul. He says it is not attention but yet posed for Unzipped soon after the affair broke in the news. His 15 minutes of fame are long gone and the media needs to move on.

    If having sex with staffers & interns WERE made illegal in USA politics, then many of our congressmen –so far no scandals with the congress ladiez !–& several governors, mayors & a president or two would be deep stinkky doody.

    Unless boy-toy Beau has other actual, political issue beefs with the mayor, he’s doing nothing other than making him self look bitter….

  • niles

    I don’t care for Adams or his actions, but enough is enough. He has already tarnished good gay candidates, dragging this old dirty laundry out again is pointless and counter-productive. Let him serve out his term and fade away into oblivion where he belongs. As for Beau, its time to leave your childish attention-getting ways and become a man.

  • jeffree

    Is “Beau Breedlove” his real name? sounds so like a pornstar name, don’t it !!
    If he does drag then I wonder if he *magically* transforms in 2 “Belle Breedlove”!
    Sounds like his petitioning days arent really working so well, so maybe another career will work out better….

  • Michael W.

    I don’t like his shoes in that picture. The whole outfit really, he looks like he can’t dress.

    He can still get the dick, though. Bet he gives good head.

  • Michael

    Why is it that radical anti-gay activist members of Congress can commit adultery and retain their positions in government, yet this single Mayor should be thrown out for a relationship with another adult? Sorry bud, at 18, you know what you’re doing. Mr. Breedlove needs to put this behind him and move on. Life is too short to be so angry and bitter.

  • Anyway

    These wasted electrons could have been used on Davey Wavey

  • wmcarpenter

    Mr. Breedlove has his own name tattooed on his body.

  • Tessie Tura

    @wmcarpenter: That, of course, is in case he forgets it.

  • Glasser

    “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” blah blah blah . . . The name Breedlove makes me grimace, before he gets my 15 miliseconds of ‘star’attention the name has got . . .

  • Brentinpdx

    Breedlove..what a waste! Funny thing when he was touted to be on the cover of Unzipped magazine. I was thinking yeah OK….. he is so less than OK. And the mag is about showing your member… he was all covered up and hiding his. He isn’t that great looking anyway.

    Go find a rock to hide under Breedlove!

  • ThisTownNeedsAnEnema

    Breedlove came onto Adams to raise his own stature – by any Queens Necessary!

  • mjpdx

    Saw the child walking down the street this evening in the Pearl. Too bad he’s let himself go after the photo shoot. Everyone forgets that Portlanders did have a voice in the recall effort. We elected not to sign the petition for a recall. Such a waste of time and money.

  • Ben

    It’s so great too, ’cause in Portland the kid is a total pariah. Way to work your way back into Portland’s good graces Breedlove; the whole “recall Sam Adams” campaign is tiresome to all but its most rabid supporters.

  • adman

    Another bitchfest for straights to laugh it up by. Great. Thanks Breedlove, you shallow little boy.

  • Mick Russom

    The world is shocked yet another gay politician is a sexual predator. Harvey Milk statutory raped underage boys. Barney Frank did it too. And Barney Frank gay-sexed a Fannie executive Herb Moses while Frank orchestrated the disastrous lending standards leading to the housing collapse. And now sex pig statutory rapist Sam Adams (the real Samuel Adams would be SICKENED by this man) is shaking up the police department finding more rape friendly law enforcement? That could be it. Remind yourselves that the NAZIs were extreme LEFT wing, national socialist German workers party, and most of the the NAZI leaders were homosexuals, from Ernst Rohm right down to Hitler. America, land of the sex pig and prison to the formerly free.

  • Guillermo3

    @Anyway: Yep___generally a less bitchy site,though Davey’s non-stop love/love/love/positivity does make me worry about my blood sugar level.

  • Guillermo3

    The real shame of it all is that despite his porn star/Chippendales moniker,Beau ain’t that cute.
