[Dem] Rep. Gauthier, 56, claims rest-stop oral sex with Craigslist boy, 17, was consensual
City Pages ^ | Aug 17, 2012 | Aaron Rupar

Posted on 08/17/2012 7:54:35 AM PDT by kevcol


Rep. Kerry Gauthier, D-Duluth, won't face charges for having oral sex with a minor at the Thompson Hill rest stop near Duluth, but at the least he's revealed himself to be a dishonest person, lying to the 17-year-old about his age and to police about what exactly happened in the woods that night.
.
.
Gauthier, 56, was then a bit more forthcoming, telling the officer that he met the boy through an ad he posted on Craigslist. In the ad, Gauthier characterized himself as a 43-year-old looking for man-on-man sex with "no strings attached." His ad received a receptive reply from the unnamed 17-year-old, who allegedly told Gauthier he is 18. The dynamic duo agreed to meet at the Thompson Hill rest stop for sexual relations.

They met on July 22 and headed for the woods for fondling and a five-minute oral sex session. Spooked about the possibility of being busted, Gauthier and his boy tryst decided to end it there, and the whole incident might never have been publicized had it not been for the boy's decision to take a leak right next a couple eating dinner in a car. The couple called police to report "suspicious activity," and when authorities arrived Gauthier was still there.

The responding officer, in a police report, writes that he drew his gun on Gauthier, who approached him with his hand in his pocket. "I told him he shouldn't walk up to us with his hand in his pockets," the officer writes.

"It was at that time I noted his zipper was open and part of his shirt was hanging out," the officer continues. "I asked him why his zipper was down and he said he didn't know.

From another article:
Because the age of consent in Minnesota is 16 it is not illegal to have sex with someone who is 17. However it can be a misdemeanor to engage in sex acts in a public place.

Trolling rest stops is one way to meet constituents. Even if they can’t vote yet.

Consensual? Well, heck, then - give him a committee chairmanship or something.

Is it really any of the government’s business what consenting adults do in the privacy of their rest stop stall?

Local media has mentioned his party. Gauthier is arguably the most flatulently and obnoxiously liberal member of the Minnesota Legislature.

[ Republicans are calling for Gauthier to resign, with MNGOP Chairman Pat Shortridge saying in a statement: “He can’t even serve his constituents for fear of having to face reporters.” We bet it’s satisfying for Republicans to be on that side of a sex scandal for a change! ]

WTH? We bet it’s satisfying for Republicans to be on that side of a sex scandal for a change? Most sex scandals involve Rats.

I don’t see how the “lying” angle is important here.
Did the kid make a different decision, based on him being “43” instead of 56?

I doubt it.

Everybody lies about sex. Isn’t that what Bubba taught us?

Anybody who reads this story and says the problem is “he lied”, is sick.

I thought Lawrence v. Texas was about consenting ADULTS in PRIVATE.

This perv was in public and with a minor. The first straw that broke after LvT was to lower the age of consent for homosexual acts.

Where is Nancy Pelosi this election cycle whipping up hysteria about homosexuals as she did in 2006 when one tapped his toe in an airport restroom and another sent instant messages to a minor?

56 yr old & 17 yr old males, advertised for perversion on Craigslist, met at a rest stop for same, one pees next to an occupied car.

Everytime I read one of these stories I shake my head - independent of all the other issues - the “lifestyle” of anonymous restroom sex just seems so sordid and sad to me - what an existence. The argument that homosexuality is just an “alternative lifestyle” doesn’t meet the common sense test - 56 year olds meeting 17 year olds for restroom romps is just pitiful IMHO.

I suspect the Franken-lovers in MN will ignore this entirely in hope of getting state freebies. MN people went off the wall with HHH in 1948 and never much looked back.

Anybody who reads this story and says the problem is “he lied”, is sick.

They 17yo lied and that is a problem. Some are insisting that this is statutory rape and the old pervert should be tried. Seriously though, he was lied too about that. If he should be charged with anything it should be some kind of luod act in public charge.

Anyway, this story makes me a little sick. If it was a Republican it would be all over the news and people would be calling for resignations and jail time. That double standard is infuriating.

HHH now though looks pretty respectable for a Minnesotan by way of SD if one ignores his penchant for big spending, as they do in MN.

They are anonymous sex hookups. They aren’t relationships.

And yet Anderson Cooper et al try to draw a moral equivalency to heterosexual relationships.

Have so soon forgotten Sen. Larry Craig and his foot tapping in a public rest room in an airport trolling for sex in the stalls??????????????
He now by the way says what he was doing in that rest room was offical business and the charges against him should be expunged from his record.

“No strings attached”? How about AIDS? There are people on the radio here in the Boston area who think that AIDS is not spread through anonymous gay sex.

No, the “foot tapping” incident was the first thing that came to mind when I read the story. But, Craig didn’t even do anything other than try and get some and that was all over the news. From the article it seems to me that Gauthier actually did engage in sexual conduct and with a minor to boot!! But, he is a Dem and nothing will come of this. Well, he may get a promotion, perhaps a position of some LGBT committee. This is a feather in his cap! LOL

Maybe it's because so MANY PEOPLE are screwed up perverted homosexuals who spend most of their lunches in public toilets.

Heck, I remember this one time, God sent a couple of Angels to tell some local villagers they were despicable fags, and were about to pay for it.

The homos bent the angels over a table and raped them.

Seems some people never change.

The minor is at the age of consent per MN statute.(16)

The Dem on the newpaper website are using this as justifcation it’s ‘no big deal’.

The reason sexual edginess is so “in” (public) these days is the dominance of homosexuality at the center of our culture.

Public sex with strangers and sexual parading is a big part of the thrill in sodomy. Flirting with death, stoking rage and sexual aggression is a common thread.

When homos talk about “being out of the closet” they mean they want the power to have sex publically with men and boys as they desire. Most people keep their sex private - in the closet (in their own bedrooms). Thats boring to homos. That’s one reason why “gay marriage” is a joke.

Senator Larry Craig commented on this incident. “sometimes the woods around the restrooms have litter on the ground that needs picking up before you feel comfortable using the restroom.”
