Roberto ‘I really don’t remember’ Arango – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Huffington Post

A Puerto Rico lawmaker has resigned following reports that explicit photos of him surfaced on an iPhone application for gays and bisexuals, the head of the U.S. territory’s Senate announced Sunday.

Sen. Roberto Arango, a Republican who represents the capital of San Juan for the island’s governing party, presented his letter of resignation after a weekend meeting, Senate President Thomas Rivera Schatz said.

Schatz did not release the lawmaker’s letter, but said the circumstances that led to the resignation “are very lamentable.”

Local news media published photos from the application showing a man’s nude upper body with a cell phone obscuring his face.  Another showed a fuzzy image of a face that seemed to match Arango’s.

Arango has neither confirmed nor denied suggestions by local media that the photos might be of him and apparently was not asked if he had posted them. During a recent interview with WAPA TV in Puerto Rico, the senator said he has taken pictures of himself with a cell phone to document his recent weight loss. Another photo showed a rear view of a nude man on his hands and knees.

“I really don’t remember having taken those pictures of myself, but it doesn’t mean I didn’t take them,” he told the station. “I really don’t remember.”

(yeah, that works)

footnote 1:

Pedro Julio Serrano, founder of the gay rights group Puerto Rico for Everyone, said Arango voted in favor of Resolution 99, a proposal that would block any attempt to permit same-sex marriages in the U.S. territory.

He also helped block a measure to ban sexual discrimination in the workplace and opposed adoption rights for gays.

Well hey, that’s ‘very Republican’ of the guy.

footnote 2:

Assholes, EVERYWHERE!

Nude man, not named Irene, on Florida beach claimed he was ‘helping’

Via: UPI

A man accused of strolling naked on a Florida beach told officers they  couldn’t arrest him because he was “helping people,” police said.

Vero Beach police said a couple and their teenage daughters flagged down an  officer shortly before 8 p.m. Aug. 19 and reported a man exposing himself in the  shower area of the Humiston Park beach, TCPalm.com reported Friday.

The officer arrived to find Robert  Johnson, 57, standing nude in view of about 15 to 20 people with his  genitalia “plainly visible,” the arrest affidavit states.

“You can’t take me to jail for this, I’m just out here helping people,”  Johnson allegedly told the officer when he was asked for identification.

Johnson was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and resisting an  officer without violence. It was not clear Friday what sort of help Johnson was  offering his fellow beachgoers.

Would-Be Erotic Dancer Forces Flight Back to Domodedovo

Via: The Moscow Times

A London-bound flight was forced to return to Domodedovo Airport shortly after takeoff Friday morning after a drunk female passenger (see mug shot) began stealing other passengers’ eyeglasses and attempted to perform an erotic dance, transportation police said, RIA-Novosti reported.

Fifteen minutes into BMI flight BD0896, which took off at 7:15 a.m., cabin crew received word that the woman was acting strangely and disturbing other passengers, the report said.

The woman, a native of Almetyevsk in the republic of Tatarstan, was so disruptive that the crew decided to return to Domodedovo Airport, where the Airbus A-320 landed safely at 8:30 a.m.

The would-be erotic dancer was detained and sent to a hospital in Domodedovo for a medical examination. Authorities were deciding what disciplinary action should be taken against her, an Interior Ministry spokesman said.

The spokesman added that the woman acted normally prior to the flight, and he speculated that she had a low tolerance for alcohol. (yeah, think?)
