San Diego sounds like a lovely place.
Todd Bosnich says he joined [Carl] DeMaio’s campaign last year eager to work for a candidate who shared his values and who, like himself, is an openly gay Republican…
One morning last April, Bosnich said he arrived early at campaign headquarters and DeMaio called him back to his office.
“I came over to his office, door was open. And he was masturbating,” Bosnich said. “I saw his hand, his penis in his hand and he had a smile on his face.”
Morning boss. Morning Todd. You watch last night’s episode of To Catch A Predator? Boy I tell you some people. Okay, ready? STAND BACK.
Bosnich said the harassment that culminated that spring morning started months before, when DeMaio drove Bosnich back to his car after drinks with the staff at a local bar.
“We were making small talk on the way back. And when he pulled up to my car, he reached over into my lap and grabbed my crotch. And I flipped out. And I pushed his hand away,” Bosnich said. “I just was shocked because I’d never had anyone do something like that to me, especially in a position of authority and trust.”…
“‘That’s just the way Carl is,'” Bosnich recalls [campaign manager] Knepper saying. “And that if I really felt that uncomfortable I shouldn’t have let him know that I’m a gay man.”
Didn’t your mother ever warn you? Never tell a sex maniac you’re gay. He’ll get tipsy and clutch your balls for sure. Everybody knows. Oh by the way.
This is not the first time DeMaio has been accused of sexually inappropriate behavior. Last year, a fellow city councilman, Ben Hueso, said he twice caught DeMaio masturbating in a semi-private city hall restroom accessible only to city officials…
“He was furious; he looked like something serious had just happened,” [councilwoman] Emerald said. “He said DeMaio was in there (masturbating). And I said do you want to grab a police officer and have him arrested? Because this is a violation of the (city) code. He said no, but he was pretty upset.”
So the first openly gay Republican happens to be the mythological pervert the other 99.9% of Republicans have been warning us about. Time to take a long look in the mirror. Maybe some things aren’t exactly what they seem.
