2012 in Weird Florida Politics: Part One of the WTF Florida Awards
No one does sex scandals like the Sunshine State. This year saw allegations of GOP operatives carting golf carts full of hookers around the Bahamas, lesbian flings by top Republicans and porn-y sex letters. The nominees:
- Rep. Allen West for the letter her may or may not have written asking his wife to be his own personal porn star.
- The Republican Party of Florida for allegations they held a men's only fundraiser in the Bahamas with a golf cart full of hookers.
- State Rep. Richard Steinberg for resigning after sending harassing sexts to a married state prosecutor.
- State Rep. Mike Horner for resigning after his name came up on the client list of an escort service.
- Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll for allegations she had a lesbian fling with a top aide.
- State Rep. Peter Nehr for his leaked underwear pics
Listen, we still have no idea if the letter West allegedly sent his wife is actually authentic, but if not, it read as one of the most bizarre bits of political satire this year. While serving in Afghanistan, West made bizarre demands of his wife to be his "personal porn star," get a "pussy ring," and have her "hot mouth suck my dick and have warm cum fill your mouth and drip down your chin." That's just the tip of the particularly explicit iceberg.
