  •  'Right Wing Family Values' aren't really (10+ / 0-)

    for the devout. They're for everybody else. You know, the heathens with no morals.

    Convicted Zumba John Is Anti-Gay Advocate of "Traditional Values":

    Surprise, surprise. The first man convicted of paying Maine Zumba madam Alexis Wright for sex is also a staunch (and married) advocate of Christian family values who donated $1,000 to an anti-gay marriage group last fall.

    Fortin's involvement with "family values" causes were first reported last fall. According to state records, in October 2012 — roughly one year after he paid for sex with Wright — Fortin donated $1,000 to Protect Maine Marriage, a “Christians for Traditional Marriage” organization that fought the 2012 legislation that eventually legalized gay marriage in Maine. Through his company, Diamond Developments of Maine, LLC, Fortin also donated $350 to Garret Mason, a conservative state Senator opposed to gay marriage. Fortin Construction Inc, another company owned by Fortin, bills itself as a "A Christian Family Owned Company" online.

    * 'Convicted Zumba John' would be an awesome name for a punk band!
