Married, Anti-LGBT Ohio Politician Resigns After Being Caught Having GAY SEX In His Office!

Oops!!!! Ohio state representative Wes Goodman resigned his seat in the state's House this week after "inappropriate behavior" occurring in his state-provided office several months ago was brought to light in media reports.

Ohio state representative Wes Goodman resigned his seat in the state's House this week after "inappropriate behavior" occurring in his state-provided office several months ago was brought to light in media reports. Related: Twitter Reminds POTUS He's An Admitted Sexual Assaulter Here's the kicker: the "inappropriate behavior" cited against Rep. Goodman -- a staunch family values Republican who often discussed that marriage was ONLY between one man and one woman -- was an incident where he was caught in his office having sex with another man! Yeah... OOPS!!!! Even though the incident in question happened a couple months ago, Ohio House speaker Cliff Rosenberger was finally alerted to Goodman's gay sex show in the office earlier this week, at which point Rosenberger pushed the closeted Republican politician to resign. In a statement, Rosenberger said: "It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution." Yeah, no kidding. Related: Trump Slams Al Franken Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations Rosenberger's spokesman wouldn't go any further on details about the gay hookup, either, only to say that it was between Goodman and a person who was NOT a state employee, and everything was consensual with no sexual harassment or assault. Now, Wes Goodman's hypocritical, cheatin' ways (of course he's married with children, too!) have landed him outside politics, probably forever -- and it's the second consecutive month in Ohio that a GOP lawmaker has been forced to resign after a sex scandal! (Findlay, Ohio state Senator Cliff Hite, another Republican, resigned in October after a state employee alleged that he asked her for sex several times.) Keep producing those profoundly shitty, hypocritical Republican politicians, Ohio -- you're doing a bang-up job of it lately! [Image via Twitter.].....»»

Game Of Thrones Producers Respond To Backlash Over Their Next Show Being About Modern-Day Slavery!

Watch before you hate! That's what Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have to say to the critics of their next HBO drama Confederate. The freshly announced project imagines a modern-day America where slavery is still legal and has evolved into a modern institution. The show will follow characters on both sides of the [...] Watch before you hate! That's what Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have to say to the critics of their next HBO drama Confederate. The freshly announced project imagines a modern-day America where slavery is still legal and has evolved into a modern institution. The show will follow characters on both sides of the "the Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone" in the events leading to the "Third American Civil War." Video: GoT Star Gets WAY Too Into Shipping His Own Character! Needless to say, not everyone was hooked by the modern slavery concept -- especially from two white producers whose current show has been called out for a lack of diversity. Some critics were so appalled, they accused HBO of making a show that sounds like a white supremacist fantasy! But Benioff and Weiss -- along with producers Nichelle Tramble Spellman and Malcolm Spellman -- are telling haters to slow their roll, calling the backlash "a little premature" in a new interview. Speaking to Vulture on Thursday, the writers said no scripts for Confederate have even been written yet, and people should watch the premiere before they decide whether the concept offends them or not. Benioff noted: "So everything is brand new and nothing's been written. I guess that's what was a little bit surprising about some of the outrage. It's just a little premature. You know, we might fuck it up. But we haven't yet." While many critics were uneasy about Benioff and Weiss tackling this subject as white men, the project has the Spellmans on board, two prominent writer-producers of color, who both said audiences should wait for premiere night to judge the final product. Related: BBC Responds To Trolls Upset Over Doctor Who's First Woman Time Lord! Nichelle explained: "I do understand their concern. I wish their concern had been reserved to the night of the premiere, on HBO, on a Sunday night, when they watched and then they made a decision after they watched an hour of television as to whether or not we succeeded in what we set out to do. The concern is real. But I think that the four of us are very thoughtful, very serious, and not flip about what we are getting into in any way. What I've done in the past, what Malcolm has done in the past, what the D.B.s have done in the past, proves that. So I would have loved an opportunity for the conversation to start once the show was on the air." Malcolm added that there are "no sell-outs" involved with the series, but people who "feel a need to address issues." He said of the hate: "You cannot litigate this on Twitter. It's not possible. I don't know that we can change anyone's mind… but what people have to understand is, and what we are obligated to repeat in every interview is: We've got black aunties. We've got black nephews, uncles. Black parents and black grandparents. We deal with them every single day. We deal with the struggle every single day. And people don't have to get on board with what we're doing based on a press release. But when they're writing about us, and commenting about us, they should be mindful of the fact that there are no sell-outs involved in this show. Me and Nichelle are not props being used to protect someone else. We are people who feel a need to address issues the same way they do, and they should at least humanize the other end of those tweets and articles." Confederate is said to follow "freedom fighters, slave hunters, politicians, abolitionists, journalists, the executives of a slave-holding conglomerate, and the families of people in their thrall." The drama series is expected to start production after the eighth and final season of Thrones airs in either 2018 or 2019. Do YOU think a show about modern day slavery would work?

Matt Damon & Russell Crowe Allegedly Helped Harvey Weinstein Kill A Different Sexual Harassment Exposé — OVER A DECADE AGO!

Matt Damon and Russell Crowe have some 'splainin' to do!

Well, it appears as though the boys' club in Hollywood enabled the indie movie [...] Matt Damon and Russell Crowe have some 'splainin' to do! Following The New York Times' explosive exposé on Harvey Weinstein and claims of his decades of sexual harassment, many are left wondering how this was allowed to go on for so long. Well, it appears as though the boys' club in Hollywood enabled the indie movie mogul's behavior. Related: Model Zoe Brock Details Being "Harveyed" What do we mean exactly?? Apparently, this isn't the first time a piece about Weinstein's gross conduct has been written, as a similar story was drafted back in 2004. The reason it never saw the light of day is because Damon and Crowe allegedly helped Weinstein gut the investigation into a practically nothing piece. Sharon Waxman, founder of The Wrap, made these bold claims in a new story on Sunday. The longtime journalist revealed: "In 2004, I was still a fairly new reporter at The New York Times when I got the green light to look into oft-repeated allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein. It was believed that many occurred in Europe during festivals and other business trips there. I traveled to Rome and tracked down the man who held the plum position of running Miramax Italy. According to multiple accounts, he had no film experience and his real job was to take care of Weinstein's women needs, among other things." Ew. We're sure that job must've been a literal nightmare. She continued: "As head of Miramax Italy in 2003 and 2004, Fabrizio Lombardo was paid $400,000 for less than a year of employment... I had people on the record telling me Lombardo knew nothing about film, and others citing evenings he organized with Russian escorts." At the time, Lombardo denied the allegations about his job responsibilities AND "declined to comment on the circumstances of his leaving Miramax." Nonetheless, Waxman tracked down a London-based woman who had been paid off following an "unwanted sexual encounter with Weinstein." While the unnamed woman was too scared to comment on the harassment because of the non-disclosure agreement she signed, evidence of a pay off was supplied. Despite all of this evidence, Sharon's initial report of the situation never ran -- and here's where Damon and Crowe come in. Waxman relayed: "After intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly to vouch for Lombardo and unknown discussions well above my head at the Times, the story was gutted. I was told at the time that Weinstein had visited the newsroom in person to make his displeasure known. I knew he was a major advertiser in the Times, and that he was a powerful person overall." Still, the Times had a journalistic responsibility to publish the story, right? Wrong. The businesswoman added: "The story was stripped of any reference to sexual favors or coercion and buried on the inside of the Culture section, an obscure story about Miramax firing an Italian executive. Who cared? The Times' then-culture editor Jon Landman, now an editor-at-large for Bloomberg, thought the story was unimportant, asking me why it mattered." How awful. And shame on anyone who would help enable Harvey's predatory ways. We're just glad that people are speaking out now. [Image via WENN.].....»»

Roy Moore Now Suing Alabama Over Alleged Voter Fraud In The Special Election He Lost — But State Officials Aren"t Buying It!

You didn't think getting rid of Roy Moore would be that easy, did you? Weeks after losing the U.S. Senate race in a stunning special election, the accused child molester filed a lawsuit to try to stop Alabama from certifying Democrat Doug Jones as the victor. The complaint was filed late Wednesday, 14 hours before the meeting [...] You didn't think getting rid of Roy Moore would be that easy, did you? Weeks after losing the U.S. Senate race in a stunning special election, the accused child molester filed a lawsuit to try to stop Alabama from certifying Democrat Doug Jones as the victor. The complaint was filed late Wednesday, 14 hours before the meeting of Alabama's canvassing board to officially declare Jones the winner of the special election. Related: Mike Huckabee Schooled After Comparing Trump To Churchill! In the court filing, Moore, who lost to Jones by about 20k votes, said he believed there were irregularities in the election. The former judge is calling for not only a fraud investigation, but a NEW election! His attorney wrote in the complaint: "We call on Secretary of State Merrill to delay certification until there is a thorough investigation of what three independent election experts agree took place: election fraud sufficient to overturn the outcome of the election." One of Moore's "experts" includes conspiracy theorist Richard Charnin, who believes the 2004 presidential election and 2016 Democratic primary were also rigged. In Moore's case, Charnin allegedly found "irregularities in 20 precincts" of the state's Jefferson County, which were apparently "enough to reverse the outcome of the election." But state officials saw things a bit differently: not so much a case of rigged election as one of sore loseritis. Related: Right Wing News Network Falsely Called Roy Moore The Winner! Speaking with CNN on Thursday, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said his office had already received over 100 reports of voter fraud and had adjudicated more than 60. One complaint, Merrill added, claimed to be about a nonexistent town -- a report the State Secretary called "a flat-out lie." So despite Moore's cries for a do-over, Merrill confirmed state officials would be moving forward with certifying Jones as the winner on Thursday. Merrill revealed he would meet with Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and state Attorney General Steve Marshall on Thursday afternoon to certify Jones' win, adding that Jones would be sworn in when the Senate returns in January. It looks like Moore will be forced to deal with a shitty, embarrassing situation he didn't consent to. Now he finally knows what his accusers went through! [Image via C-SPAN.].....»»
