More (alleged) Republican Hypocricy

Seems yet another Republican gay sex scandal is brewing. He allegedly had consensual sex with another male and was possibly being blackmailed. He also voted against same sex domestic partnership and against a bill which would outlaw sexually oriented discrimination. He's a state lawmaker, though, so I doubt much will be heard about this on the national level.

Given how so many Republicans seem to be hypocritical about sex, it bugs me that I really can't say much about the spreadsheet. Years ago I happened to be privy to data from a company which had lots of interesting customer data. After a while, someone thought to do some data mining. The database had information about which political party a customer was registered with and which products the customer bought, so someone created a spreadsheet with purchased products grouped by political affiliation. How many people would kill to have this information? It was fantastic. As it turns out, the overwhelming majority of sex-related (as in pornographic) products were purchased by Republicans.

For a variety of reasons, I can't say any more and it frustrates the hell out of me. I knew the data sources and they were of extremely high quality, but since I can't prove it or cite sources, it just becomes another useless Internet anecdote :(
