Shades of Larry Craig

George A. Rekers cofounded the Family Research Council with religious right icon James Dobson. And he's been a key leader of the "ex-gay" movement for years, even testifying on behalf of the states of Arkansas and Florida in defense of their laws banning adoptions by gays and lesbians. Alas he was caught a few days ago coming home from a ten day European vacation with a male prostitute he'd found on Rentboy.com.

Rekers first claimed he didn't know the man was a prostitute, then said he'd hired him to carry his luggage and finally went with he was trying to bring him the message of Jesus.
