State Rep. Richard Curtis, R-La Center, admitted to having sex with a man he met at an adult video store in Spokane last week, according to a police report released Tuesday afternoon.
Curtis, 48, is married and has two daughters. The two-term legislator and retired fire department captain was in Spokane last week for a retreat with other Republican lawmakers in preparation for the 2008 Legislature.
During a brief phone interview with Columbian Editor Lou Brancaccio on Monday afternoon, Curtis said he did not have sex with the man and is not gay.
Or, maybe I should have titled it "This week's Republican who doesn't think sneaking around and having gay sex makes him gay"? Oh, but I like DownWithTyranny's better "Republican sex mania Richard Curtis can't quite get the toothpaste back into the tube".
Madsen, in his report, said Castagna told him that Curtis wouldn't say what he did for a living.
"I work to help people out," Curtis reportedly said, before adding, "If I told you, I'd have to kill you."
But, hey, it's ok with his wife...
Castagna said Curtis told him that "his wife knew he liked men when they got married, but she was not into that, so he only did that when he was out of town," the detective wrote in his report.
I wonder if she knew about "the bag with the nylon rope and toy stethoscope in it"?
