The GOP Congressman In The Steamy Aaron Schock FanFic Seems To Follow It Pretty Closely

398px-Adam_Kinzinger,_Official_Portrait,_112th_CongressAmong the more unusual political phenomenon to emerge in the past few months has been the popularity of fanfiction featuring Rep. Aaron Schock (R.-Gay Wardrobe) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R.-Ayn Rand). While the encounters between the two make up the bulk of the writing enterprise, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, like Schock an Illinois Republican, also plays a large (ahem) part in the narrative. Kinzinger was a one-time lover of Schock, who fondly recalls (in the fiction, of course) “Never a dull moment with Adam in the bedroom.”

Guess who likes to read all about it? Apparently, the real life Rep. Kinzinger.

In what is plainly his personal Twitter account, Kinzinger follows @PaulRyanXXX, the account for the fanfiction. (Displaying proper social media etiquette, @PaulRyanXXX thanked Kinzinger for the follow.) This is the same Twitter account that Kinzinger uses to follow other members of Congress, reporters, family members and a priest.

Schock has described Kinzinger as “a closer personal friend of mine who’s an active duty member of Congress [in the district] next door to me.” Now, it could be that Kinzinger, whom Schock endorsed over a more senior incumbent when two districts were merged into one in 2012, just has a good sense of humor. He might find the whole fanfiction thing amusing, particularly his role in it. The reasons for following the account could be cause for endless speculation.

But you have to be pretty oblivious to the world of social media to make yourself one of @PaulRyanXXX’s handful of followers. That’s especially true if you are an elected official whose fictional double has a major role in what the fanfic’s authors like to describe as “smut” and whose fictional lover is widely rumored to like men. Why would you need to make that particular account one of the 69 you follow? Presumably you guess no one will notice.

Except they just did.

    So lmao right now


    Not bad looking for a soulless republican. Certainly hotter than schock with his dead eyes and weirdly small face.

    I suspected Paul Ryan was gay from the first time I saw him. Plus he is so angry at the world that he fits the profile of a self loathing gay Republican exactly.

  • coffeeaugur

    If there was a gay gene …. I’m pretty sure they would both test positive. … which way does the swirl on the back of their head go … clockwise, or counter clockwise? How long is their ring finger compared to their index finger? :-D

  • TheMarc

    OMG gurl!! Then what did he do??!

  • Queertogeno

    @PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID: Yep, I wouldnt mind having a go at turning him from the dark side or, you know, just have a go.

    I suppose that some gays consider it sporting to stalk potential prey the so called closet cases and there is no shortage of the gay animal who thinks everyone is gay…I find it all rather tiresome because people always focus on the exception and assume that it is the rule…I am quite happy to limit my activities to the out and proud variety.

    I don’t know anything about Adam Kinsinger. Is his voting record as miserable as Aaron Schock’s when it comes to LGBTQ issues?

    I am curious as to why he follows @PaulRyanXXX but I’m not dumb enough to jump to the conclusion that he must be gay because he follows that Twitter account.

  • JDJase

    @ZaneStuart: On LGBT issues he pretty much matches up with Schock. In general he’s more conservative (Schock is more establishment, Kinzinger is more tea party).

  • michaelroy

    ok I’m in!! The whole love fest is hot!! yeah I said it!! so what! and I’m following @paulryanxxx now too! Thanks for the heads up. I’m guessing Kinzinger is a little turned on, or at least bi-curious like every other man, by the whole erotic panting too :D Boys will be Boys!!!! ;)

  • tricky ricky

    i checked both accounts. Kinzinger must have 2 accounts if the link goes to an account which is actually his. paulryanxxx does not have either of Kinzinger’s accounts following it.
