Will this come up in Rick Perry's confirmation hearing-The Search for the Hidden Life of Rick Perry?

One of the persons who I have worked with at the Texas Democratic Party is a truly interesting person named Glen Maxey. Glen Maxey was the first openly gay member of the Texas legislature. Glen claims to have the record for the most naked voters registered between midnight and 6 AM and so far no one has dared to dispute this claim. Glen is a member of the DNC and was in charge of the Texas delegation at Philadelphia (he got my youngest a guest pass for the first night of the convention).

Back in 2011 when Rick Perry aka Governor Goodhair was running for the nomination, Glen researched the rumors about Goodhair being bisexual. There have been rumors about Goodhair being caught in bed with the male secretary of state back in 2004 and Kay Bailey Hutchinson attempted (poorly) to use these rumors against Goodhair in the 2010 GOP primary for governor. These rumors had no effect on the primary between KBH and Goodhair and Goodhair fell apart before these rumors were used in the 2016 race. My daughter is LGBT and I personally do not care about Goodhair's sleeping partners.

Just before the Oops comment in the GOP debate, Glen had come out with a book documenting Goodhair's "dates" with a number of gay prostitutes. https://www.amazon.com/Head-Figure-Search-Hidden-Perry/dp/1468025988/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483039707&sr=8-1&keywords=glen%20maxey%C2%A0&tag=viglink20248-20

“On June 23, 2011 a national reporter called Glen Maxey, the first and only openly gay state legislator in the history of Texas. Rick Perry was making noises about running for president, and the reporter asked about rumors that Perry possibly may have had homosexual sex. Glen had heard the rumors before but never investigated them. Now curious, Glen sent out messages to his wide network of gay and political contacts. Within hours, he received astonishing information from multiple sources. For the next five months, Glen’s life was consumed with investigating the rumors and stories about Perry. Did Rick Perry have sex with men? Read this remarkable book and decide for yourself.”

One of my daughters is LGBT and I personally do not care about Goodhair's sleeping partners. I wonder if this book will come up in the confirmation hearings for Goodhair?

Glen is a true character, You cannot say that Texas politics are boring.

1. Irrevalent

Only proves he's guilty of hypocrisy. Not disqualifying. This isn't 1956

2. It will be disqualifying to the idjit knuckle-dragger fascists who voted for the Greatest Leader

And that will be enough for DJ 'Augustus' to pull the plug on his appointment. Don't want to disappoint Vlad the Enabler, who would NOT approve.

3. Are you serious..LMPV....one of your daughters is LGBT...yet this is a path you follow?

 

This is beneath anyone with common decency regardless of the target....."....and I personally do not care about Goodhair's sleeping partners."
Then why post it?

4. Nobody advances in the Republican party if they don't have some serious skeletons in their closets.

They are all crooks, so the only way they can trust one another is if they can destroy anyone who gets out of line.

The guys with the biggest skeletons rise to the top. They blackmail one another to high office.

Unfortunately for Republican cohesiveness, homosexuality isn't that big of a skeleton these days. Blatant hypocrisy about it rates a zero. Every Republican office holder is a hypocrite.

To be, say, Speaker of the House like Dennis Hastert was, or President Elect like Donald Trump, you've got to have raped a few minors.

I don't even want to imagine what Pence has in his closet, he's such a knob.

5. Perry is such a slimeball that I don't mind seeing

Him crushed by his own party as they react to rumors. Perry wouldn't lift a finger to help anyone but his cronies as he demonstrated by using the budget surplus for crony capitalism instead of restoring public education, teacher salaries, etc. Screw him. If this is what it takes to keep him out of Washington, I'm fine with it.
