He was called the conscience of the conservative movement. His wife is the assistant director of an Anti abortion rally called “March of Life”
Earlier this month Westley Goodman was allegeldy discoved having sex with man on the his desk in one of the state offices.
Mr Goodman was elected to represent the 87th District, in north-central Ohio, just last year. Prior to that, he worked as an aide to US Representative Jim Jordan, a highly conservative, anti-LGBT Republican.
The Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBT advocacy group in the US, named Mr Jordan in their Hall of Shame in 2014 for attempting to block marriage equality in the District of Columbia
There were rumors about Goodman being gay. Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger heard rumors that Goodman was gay and cheating on his wife as early as May 2016, a House spokesman confirmed Tuesday. But little could be done because Goodman denied those rumors when confronted, and they never involved another lawmaker or House employees.
Cleveland.com first reported Saturday that Goodman, a married man, had sex with men while working in Washington, D.C. and sent unsolicited, sexually inappropriate messages to younger men he met in conservative circles. Goodman, 33, continued sending messages while he was a sitting legislator, men who received the messages say.
Johnny Hadlock, a former congressional staffer, told the AP he engaged in sexual banter by text and had phone sex with Goodman while the two worked in Washington in the early 2010s. He said he was furious when, years later, he saw Goodman campaigning on the issue of “natural marriage” between a man and a woman, “because I knew differently.”
“Wes is a good guy. He’s a nice guy. He’s a gregarious guy. He’s a good networker. But he’s a hypocrite,” said Hadlock, whose story was first reported by cleveland.com. “He’s engaged in things with me and with others that I know are the antithesis of what he’s publicly proclaiming and standing for in his public life.”
The Washington Post reported Friday that another conservative group, the Council for National Policy, handled internally a complaint that Goodman fondled an 18-year-old college student while he was sleeping in a hotel room at its 2015 conference.
The student’s stepfather brought details of the encounter to president Tony Perkins, who also heads the prominent Family Research Council.
“If we endorse these types of individuals, then it would seem our whole weekend together was nothing more than a charade,” the stepfather wrote to Perkins, according to the Post. “Trust me… this will not be ignored nor swept aside,” Perkins replied. “It will be dealt with swiftly, but with prudence.”
In early summer, a non-House employee came forward with evidence of computer and cellphone screenshots suggesting Goodman had been unfaithful to his wife in suggestive or explicit photos and messages. The activity involved all appeared consensual, but Goodman was called in and warned that if he ever engaged in acts with House staff or on state property, it would become Rosenberger’s business.
“Representative Goodman denied all of it and said that ‘fake screenshots’ were being circulated,”
When he resigned his House seat, Goodman said in a statement that he hadn’t served his constituents “in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service.” He has not responded to repeated requests for comment on media accounts published since then.
This story isn’t over, men are slowly coming forward saying Goodman either fondled them, had uncomfortable conversations with him. Some of the men have released explict conversations Goodman had with men on Twitter and Craigslist.
President Trump has repeatedly demonstrated he chooses the absolute best people for his cabinet.
Three of them made headlines this week. reducing him to a co-starring role in the media. (he doesn’t like being a co-star) Bill Manafort is the star of this trio, he is a serial fashionista, he spends millions for his clothing and hair dye. Manafort brought an employee Rick Gates. Gates handled the day-to-day activities of the campaign. He took full responsibility for a lil plagiarism where Melania’s homemade speech sounded a lot like Michelle Obama speech. Finally a lot of us was introduced to the lil whippersnapper George Papadopoulos .
(Try saying Papadopoulos fast three times)
Da Prez is a maverick, you really don’t need to know anything about anything. He bucks the system. Even when he is warned about a prospective candidate, he relies on his instincts
Take Betsy DeVos, the Secretary of Educations who knows absolutely nothing about schools or education. The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr Ben Carson is a surgeon.
While you do need a couple of bucks, you don’t need to be a billionaire. You need to be well connected. You need to be someone who knows somebody, who knows you!
Your knowledge about the Prez is very important. His awards and commendations. It crucial that you compliment the Prez often. Embellishments are strongly recommended. ” Your is the best President the world has ever known” ” How old are you? I would have guessed 40″ “Your golf game is spectacular and keeps you trim” “I can clearly understand why THE BLACKS admire you so!”
This worked for the fashion forward Manafort. Manny was dirty, well known and well connected ,he was a notoriously dirty well dressed guy. After a few well placed compliments (wow Donald, that’s a firm handshake) he was in. Gates was a no brainer, if Manny was a good guy so Ricky Gates didn’t need a formal invitation. (Come on down, we’re having Nachos for lunch)
George Papadopoulos isn’t wealthy, but he knew someone who knew someone. He was a volunteer on Ben Carlson campaign. The thirty year old volunteered for many organizations for a short time, that made there way on to his Linked In page. He is currently an oil, gas and policy consultant. He impressed da Prez who said “He’s an energy and oil consultant, excellent guy”
Currently, there are many positions available in the his cabinet. If you know important people who knows people who know you, its very possible you may be the next Papadopoulos.
The quarterback is still unsigned but the protest he launched has grown, raising uncomfortable questions about race and activism for NFL owners – and fans
On Wednesday afternoon, the NFL will be forced again to confront a story it must wish to go away. At an hour when the league’s employees should be hustling home from their New York office they will walk into a rallyon the street outside, organized to ask the same inexplicable question that has perplexed many for months.
“Why is Colin Kaepernick still unsigned?”
The NFL season begins in two weeks and the quarterback who took the San Francisco 49ers to within seven yards of winning the Super Bowl four years ago does not have a job. His absence isn’t difficult to explain. His refusal to stand for the national anthem last year as a way to draw attention to racial inequality in the US has apparently made him toxic to the league’s owners who fear a backlash from white fans and corporate sponsors offended by a perceived lack of patriotism.
Its nearly two weeks since the airing of part four of the reunion and people are still talking about what executive producer Andy Cohen called the Megawatt Lie. While Bravo still haven’t officially announced her status, Cohen recently told “E” Parks, co-stars had no desire to film alongside her ever again. Which basically says, No Gurl ,you wont be back! Parks maintain she was set up by the producers. Could she be telling the truth?
People are STILL SQUAKING about the ATL Ladies
Earlier Today, Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County #RHOCO took to Facebook to share her thoughts about The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9 reunion drama involving her fellow Bravo star Phaedra Parks. “When you make up a lie about a cast mate (or husband) and try to destroy their character & reputation, YOU SHOULD BE FIRED,”
Bethenny Frankel, from the Real Housewives of New York #RHONY talked to US Magazine and said the reunion “made her feel dirty” “It was disgusting,” ““I don’t think Phaedra can bounce back from that,” Frankel concluded of the drama.
Frankel disagrees with Parks
She tells “E” “I’ve been doing this for 10 years,”“I actually, sadly, consider myself to be a veteran. The producers do not make you do these things at all.” “The producers don’t know exactly what’s going on, so they might say, ‘Are you going to talk to Kandi about this?’ They don’t know,” Bethenny insists producers would never plant a lie on the Housewives; saying the drama is real.
A Parks source said there was “a producer who told her the drug and rape story, which she repeated to another cast member. It snowballed. The editing was not kind to her.”
Sources close to the ex-Housewife told TMZ she’s mad as hell, because she claims a producer gave her the B.S. story she told to Porsha Williams about Kandi Burruss — the whole drugging and raping thing.
The producer didn’t necessarily tell her to repeat it with cameras rolling, but we’re told Phaedra explained the producer’s role during the reunion show. She’s also angry because that was edited out of the reunion to make it look like she acted alone.
We’re told the way Phaedra sees it, she was fired in retaliation for throwing producers under the bus. We’re told Phaedra insists the ‘Housewives’ crew knows she’s not the source of the lie. Sources said , she said she outted the producers and it was cut from the show. They’re not allowed to break the ‘fourth wall’ and talk about production. It may not have been entirely Phaedra’s fault, but she has to take the fall,” the source said.
Is the producer Carlos King? If so,what was his motive?
There are many rumors circling the Former Real Housewives of Atlanta producer Carlos King. Yes, like Parks, King will not return for season 10.
Carlos King insist’s he wasn’t fired He says his production company, Kingdom Reign, signed a production deal with ITV in November of last year and that he told the cast in January that he was leaving.
Edited: From Tamera Tattles (3/17/17)
I’m told it went down like this. Kandi came hard for Porsha. So Porsha rolled over on Phaedra admitting that everything she said was told to her by Phaedra. Phaedra blamed Carlos. She said Carlos told her all the stuff about the sex dungeon and “Marvin.”
If you are like me, at this point in the story you are thinking, “Wouldn’t Phaedra know more of Kandi’s personal information that Carlos King?” I am only reporting what I am told. So Carlos was behind the entire storyline against Kandi. I’m not surprised. But I am sure that Phaedra was more than willing to take that storyline and run with it.
Basically, Andy’s reaction about “stuff coming out” was about Phaedra basically admitting she set Porsha up with the lies to tell on Kandi. Again, THIS IS NOT NEWS TO US! HOW IS THIS NEWS TO ANDY? But apparently it was. Phaedra has always been Andy’s favorite RHOA. This time he finally went hard on Phaedra and told her she knew exactly what she was doing when she feed dumb old Porsha the information. .
In the end, Phaedra got the really bad edit as a liar and a shit stirrer. It’s about time. But again, this is not shocking to anyone but Andy. I wondered if all the mentions of Carlos would be aired and a source said that it would probably be edited to say “a producer.”
From Bossip: “Our sources also say that Phaedra tried to blame the lesbian & date rape lie she fed Porsha Williams on producer Carlos King,” wrote B. Scott.”Which might have something to do with why he won’t be back to work on the show next year.” (4/10/17)
Sheree Whitfield has had an issue with Mr King. In 2015, Ms Whitfield told the press she was “duped” by Carlos King. At the time she was a friend and thought she would receive her “Peach” following the departure of Nene Leakes in a backroom deal she brokered with shows former producer Carlos King. She learned she would only appear in some of the episode in season 8. She didn’t learn this until after production. According to a source, Whitfield met with the reality show producer earlier this year (2015)and pitched him a concept – a show about African-American real estate agents in Atlanta.
When Whitfield departed from the show three years ago she went on to get her real estate license and had been selling properties since.She wanted to be featured in the new show along with several other women she knew were also having success in the world of real estate and believed King could help her sell the show to a network.
‘Without telling Sheree, Carlos started pitching the show to networks and WE TV became interested,’ claims the source. He sold them the concept without Sheree’s involvement and then had to go back to her with a make-good once he did.
Is Carlos King “The Streets” and is there Bad Blood With Todd Tucker?
Is Phaedra telling the truth? Is a producer? Could it be Revenge? When I think of it? It was odd that Todd Tucker remained on stage through part 4. Normally the husbands have a segment on the reunion show and then are dismissed however, Todd remained. Perhaps Todd suspected King was involved.
(Edited) From Straight from the A (3/19/2017) Todd and Carlos were once partners in TV One’s “Hollywood Divas” Produced by Tuckers’ TTucker Productions and King’s Kingdom Reign Entertainment.
Todd and Carlos were partners in “Hollywood Divas “their business relationship soured because they couldn’t see eye to eye about how to handle production and the two lost a lot of money. Tucker and King are reportedly aren’t on speaking terms.
Kandi unhappy with King
Carlos King is working on an Xscape documentary with Jermaine Dupri. Word on the curb is that Kandi had no clue about the project and was actually planning one of her own prior to finding out.
Apparently Kandi doesn’t own any rights to Xscape or their music but Jermaine does and Dupri has been working with King to produce it. Needless to say, Kandi was apparently livid about the news and felt that Carlos intentionally deceived her. The trio have been at odds ever since.
Kandi and her reunited girl group Xscape have been working with Mona Scott Young (Carlos King’s former boss who fired him from LHHATL). It seems that Carlos was trying to get the jump on Mona and he succeeded by going straight to Jermaine!
I was also told that Carlos interviewed Mama Joyce for information about Xscape but at the time he did, Kandi had no idea that it was for the project with Jermaine.

Okay people of a certain age, you might need your smartphones for this reference. Can you imagine Ozzy and Harriet being a reality show, all sweetness and pies?
We watch reality for the Drama. ! And last night we got DRAMA! Dorinda Medley, gave us a bit of East Side Gangstah last night. Unlike her former castmate , Heather Thompson who co-opted “Holla” from someone on P-Diddy’s staff. Dorinda a genuine thuggish edge. A classy lady, who knows how to say Mutha Fucker without someone dropping the crystal. She was pissed and not taking it anymore!
Sonja After the Reunion
Of all the cast members it difficult not to like Sonja Morgan. She is fun, often delusional, but the life of the party. Tonight we learned Ms Morgan worked as a brand consultant to Donald T. After the reunion last year, Sonja has been talking to the press, about, Luann and Dorinda. These are just a few of the headlines from various tabloids ._________________________________
“Get facts straight was upset because it was my late husbands birthday!” Dorinda Medley continued on Twitter, tagging Sonja in her tweets, adding later, “been quiet and a lady all summer! But enough is enough with her slander! #TruthWillPrevail #SorryNotSorry.”
There were quite a bit, and Dorinda was done! The setting was Ramona home in the Hamptons. Ramona is close to Sonja and Dorinda and know about the heat from Dorinda. When Sonja arrives Carole tells her about Ramona going coo coo for cocoa puffs on Bethanny, over Bethanny’s being in soft porn. Sonja who is always cool,didn’t think it was an issue.
Dorinda-Lady D doesn’t make it Nice!
Sonja sits down at the table and says hi to both Luann and Dorinda like its a normal day. Lady D wasn’t in the mood for phony pleasantries and goes full in on Sonja, in front of everyone at the party, including Sex in the City’s Candace Bushnell. Lady D tells Sonja to “shut your mouth” and says her “Holland Tunnel” vagina should have an Easy Pass. It was like Bethenny attacking Luann last year at Lady D’s home in the Berkshires.
Zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds
Sonja tells Lady D, the only reason she’s been talking to the press is that she’s been doing an off-Broadway show. Tinsley steps in to help her drowning roommate, but Lady D, is unstoppable. No one is eating, they are in suspended animation. Lady, D goes off the rails telling Sonja to “Fix the toilet in your townhouse!”
Meanwhile, Bethenny running late drives up and calls Carole and hears Lady D screaming on the phone. Afraid to come in to the mess, She says she’s like Joe Pesci in Home Alone, hiding outside in her SUV.
Lady D was completely sober, after a few martini’s Sonja may have been cut (kidding KIDDING)
One of the male guest attempt to bring an end to this embarrassing fight. It works for a few seconds. Carole is making her exit to Bethenny’s ride and tells Ramona, she doesn’t want her to come to her election party. Ramona is clear that she’s coming even though its clear she doesn’t support Hillary. Carole doesn’t understand, Ramona is not missing any party. Carole doesn’t feel like she’s educated enough and doesn’t want her there if she’s voting for Trump. Ramona is pissed! She has been disinvited and would NEVER do that to anyone!
Delivered the Tag line of the Season!
Brunch with Luann
The ladies visit Luann renovated Hampton digs. Ramona is still pissed the Carole has uninvited her. Some how lost in the mind of Ramona is she just uninvited Sonja to her house, choosing Lady D.
When Tinsley and Sonja walk up to the house, they can hear the ladies talking about them. But there wasn’t anything negative, Dorinda( Lady D) said her piece and has move on and said she liked Tinsley. Dorinda and Sonja hug it out and both act like last night was a distant memory.
Tinsely on her own
(cue scary music)
Its clear Tinsely, didn’t read the official Housewife guide. Never venture out alone!
Tinsley meets with Dorinda and Luann for lunch at Tao’s and she is a bit nervous because she didn’t tell Sonja. Once again, Tinsley introduces herself with her tired little tale and gets Dorinda excited about her mug shot. (Tinsely do us a favor and put it on tape-so we the viewers wont hear it again!)
The rookies slips and tells Luann and Dorinda about Sonja’s new man. A man she calls Frenchy. Luann give Tinsley a little side eye that says, I will save this bit of juicy news for a later date.
Sonja has friends in high and low places and one of those friends saw Tinsley with Luann and Dorinda at Tao. Sonja’s not happy and she share’s this with one of her interns. Tinsley overhears the conversation and a fight starts. Tinsley gets emotional and just says she doesn’t have that many friends now in New York, so she needs Sonja to be cool.
Sonja reminds Tinsley that she didn’t give her birthday card. Tinsley gave Sonja a Candle and Sonja learns Tinsely brought a man home and had sex her her daughters bed. Sonja is outraged, and tells Tinsley no men!! Tinsley, feels Sonja is treating her as a child. Can you say YMCA?
She can wash her panties in the Toilet, if she want’s to!
“Frenchy’s ” name is Edgar ( I guess if my name were Edgar-I’d prefer Frenchy, too) and Sonja is getting ready for the date. We lucky views get to see lay out her panties on her bathroom floor and smelling them to see which ones are clean (Really Bravo? its come to this?) and then soaking then in her bidet.
Next week we will learn who the next president will be.
The Queen of Soul is coming out swinging against the fellow legend, accusing her of making up a story that she was Whitney Houston’s godmother, even though the alleged offense happened five years ago at Houston’s funeral.
“She blatantly lied on me … fully well knowing what she was doing,” Aretha Franklin said in a phone interview.
Franklin called The Associated Press on Tuesday, after sending a lengthy fax the day before, to address what she claimed was a “libelous” statement against her made five years ago at Houston’s funeral. At the time, Warwick told funeral-goers that Franklin was there and introduced her, but then realized she wasn’t in attendance.
