There's a lil bit of a wrinkle to the story:
The chairman of the Clark County Republican Party — who last month was elected president of the Young Republican National Federation — has resigned both posts, apparently in the wake of a criminal investigation.
On Tuesday afternoon, Glenn Murphy Jr. e-mailed media outlets a letter announcing his resignation from both positions, citing an unexpected business opportunity that would prohibit him from holding a partisan political office.
However, the Clark County Sheriff’s Department on Friday began investigating Murphy for alleged criminal deviate conduct — potentially a class B felony — after speaking with a 22-year-old man who claimed that on July 31, Murphy performed an unwanted sex act on him while the man slept in a relative’s Jeffersonville home.
In 1998, a 21-year-old male filed a similar report with Clarksville police claiming Murphy attempted to perform a sex act on him while he was sleeping. Charges were never filed in that case.Here's the police reports for both incidents - they're eerily similar.
Now the legal stuff: Glenn has not been arrested nor has he been charged with a crime. And like most any other American (at least until dubya erases that part of the Constitution) he's presumed innocent until proven otherwise.
But really, couldn't he just hire James Guckert and be done with it? Murphy's a Republican. Surely he can spare $200 for some quality oral sex.
