Yesterday, John posted the news that Religious right leader, George Rekers, reportedly hired a rent-boy, via Rentboys.com “to carry his luggage” on a recent European vacation. Rekers actually tried to “explain” this development to Joe.My.God via Facebook.
Turns out Rekers is also available for hire. He was paid $87,000 by the State of Florida to be an expert witness in its defense of the adoption ban. Via Towleroad:
Florida taxpayer dollars were used to compensate George Alan Rekers, the “ex-gay” activist caught recently returning from vacation with a hustler from Rentboy.com, to defend the state’s ban on gay adoption.
Rekers While the ACLU defended Frank ‘Martin’ Gill and his sons, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum paid Rekers and his colleague Walter Schum close to $100K to spread their falsehoods in order to keep children away from the loving care of gay parents.
They were the only witnesses the state called.
Some people will do anything for money.
AG Bill McCollum is now a GOP candidate for Governor of Florida.
