Extreme right-wing positions on "social issues" are directly correlated to the number of skeletons a public figure has in his or her proverbial closet. Don't argue with it – it's science.

What is noteworthy, however, is the way the internet has forever changed the art of cruising for boy ass. The fact that this incident took place via email and chat rooms hits pretty close to home for members of my generation.
