Kerry Gauthier from Minnesota was caught receiving oral sex from a 17 year old boy in the bushes at a public rest stop after Gauthier placed a craigslist ad seeking the hook-up! (yes, craigslist has a ‘personals section). The two met for a rendezvous on July 22 at the Thompson Hill rest stop around 11 p.m. How this scandal has been kept quite for nearly a month while the press skinned Republican Todd Akins alive for his rape comment is a true testament to the mission of the left wing main stream media in America.
Both Republicans and Democrats have banded together to ask Rep. Gauthier not to seek re-election. He had been hospitalized in the wake of the scandal, being treated for shortness of breath, denying any and all interview requests.
Charges will not be pressed against the high-profile democrat politician as the sex, which occurred at a Duluth rest stop, was found to be consensual and the age of consent is 16 in Minnesota.
Minnesota House Minority Leader Paul Thissen:
‘I am deeply disappointed with Rep Kerry Gauthier’s conduct.”
House Speaker Kurt Zellers, R-Maple Grove:
‘I believe we have given Rep. Gauthier and the Democrat caucus a respectful amount of time to address this situation on their own. Rep. Gauthier’s actions are not becoming of a member of the House of Representatives, and today I am calling on him to resign from the Legislature.’
The Duluth News Tribune reported that a state trooper discovered the pair after a report of ‘suspicious activity.’
Police reports of the incident reveal that the 56 year old Gauthier put out an ad for an encounter on Craigslist personals and the 17-year-old boy responded. The 2 walked to a wooded area behind the rest stop pavilion for 5 minutes, where they engaged in oral sex and touching, according to official police records.
The trooper approached Mr Gauthier on his way back from the encounter:
“It was at that time I noted his zipper was open and part of his shirt was hanging out. I asked him why his zipper was down and he said he didn’t know. I told him to zip it up and leave. The male seemed nervous.”
Then, the trooper saw the teen:
“He stated that he had met an older man at the rest area after corresponding with him in a response to a Craigslist ad.”
Both Gauthier and the 17 year old said the sex was consensual and there was no cash exchanged. The teen also told police that he lied about his age, telling Mr Gauthier he was 18 years old.
In a flippant remark Gauthier told the Duluth News Tribune:
“I think it’s a private matter and I don’t need to talk about it.”
