A bunch of you sent me this story. I usually don’t post on Saturdays, but how can I resist “Cheater invents gay tryst to cover up straight affair”?
For those of you just tuning in, Todd Courser, a Michigan Tea Party Republican, married with four children, was having an affair with a another representative, Cindy Gamrat. The woman’s husband found out. So to cover up the work place affair, he had his aides trump up a story that really he was out nightclubbing getting strange cock from gay guys.
From his email to his aides, suggesting the spin:
Todd Courser caught on tape behind Lansing night club… Courser secretly removed from caucus several weeks ago due to a male-on-male paid for sex… He is a porn addicted sexual deviant… His cock is hanging out all over Lansing, that’s why he was thrown out of caucus.
Am I the only one who thinks that Todd Courser gets a hard on just talking about “his cock.. hanging out all over Lansing”? To his aides? To anyone reading this?
As to why would anyone do something so flamboyantly stupid? Have you read the Stupid Shit Cheaters Say? This makes sense in a disordered, wingnut kind of way.
“In a controlled burn, you do a little bit of truth mixed in with a lot of lies.”
Gee, I wonder how he knows? Experienced cheater, are you Todd?
According to the Detroit News, Courser thought the “herd” — his term for his chumpy constituents — would buy it.
During the May 19 meeting, Courser instructed Graham to send rank-and-file Republicans across Michigan what he called “an over-the-top story that’s obscene about me.” It was designed, Courser said on the recording, to “inoculate the herd” — an apparent reference to Courser and Gamrat’s followers in the tea party movement.
“It will make anything else that comes out after that — that isn’t a video — mundane, tame by comparison,” Courser, a married father of four, told Graham.
Uh oh. No one bought it.
Sympathies to Mrs. Courser and her children.
