So I’m about to put away my thinking cap and start my Friday night when the news breaks of the latest sex scandal involving yet another Republican senator.
Normally I wouldn’t bother commenting on it, but this time it involves a Puerto Rican politician, meaning from the actual island of Puerto Rico. It appears as though the senator and estadista Roberto Arango has been caught with his pants down and in a compromising position – literally.
Now the issue here isn’t whether Sen. Arango is gay (he is) or whether he takes nude pictures of himself (he does) or whether he posted pictures on the gay dating website Grindr (he did). What annoys me is his official response to the scandal:
“You know I’ve been losing weight. As I shed that weight, I’ve been taking pictures. I don’t remember taking this particular picture but I’m not gonna say I didn’t take it. I’d tell you if I remembered taking the picture but I don’t.”
