Another Republican Guilty, GOP Scrambles to Kick Him Out of Office
Bob Allen, even with his racist defense, went down for soliciting sex in a bathroom. Maybe they should just change the labels on the doors of all men’s rooms in all legislatures to “Republican Caucus.”

Family man and family values voter Bob Allen was convicted this weekend of soliciting sex in a restroom in Tutusville, FL. You remember the story, I’m sure, that Bob Allen has claimed, in his defense, that there were some black guys hanging out near the public restroom, evidently the best excuse possible for trying to pay a guy for some sort of naked lube job. I’m thinking his defense didn’t work so well. The Orlando Sentinel is on the case:
Seconds after he was convicted Friday of soliciting a sex act in a park bathroom, legislative leaders were discussing how to remove him from office.
“This conviction makes it impossible for Rep. Allen to represent responsibly the citizens of his district,” Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio said in a statement. “Furthermore, it is my personal belief that it harms the reputation of the Florida House of Representatives. We will now take the appropriate steps.”
They just can’t get rid of Bob Allen fast enough. It’s been over three years since I was registered in his district, but I’m smiling this morning.
