What a slimewad!

Somehow this story slipped by Miss Ginger, until Kaio posted about it all the way from London:

Portland Mayor Admits Past Relationship With Teen
Sam Adams' spokesman says the mayor will make a public apology in Portland on Tuesday.
Tuesday, January 20, 2009

PORTLAND, Ore. -- More than a year after denying it, the newly elected mayor of Portland has admitted having a sexual relationship with a male teenager in 2005.
Sam Adams, who is openly gay, acknowledged the relationship in a statement Monday, after the Willamette Week newspaper broke the story on its Web site.
In Washington, D.C., for the inauguration, Adams, a Democrat, will cut his trip short to issue a public apology Tuesday afternoon in Portland, said Wade Nkrumah, his spokesman.
Adams, 45, said he and the teen were together in the summer of 2005, shortly after the teenager turned 18 in June, and when Adams was a city commissioner. The revelations come nearly a year and a half after Adams and the teen said rumors of a sexual relationship between them were false.
"I lied at the time because I was afraid that people would believe untrue rumors being circulated by an undeclared mayoral opponent that I had broken a law involving sexual relations with a minor. But this is not a good excuse," Adams said in his statement.
Despite the rumors, Adams coasted to victory in his race, making Portland the largest U.S. city to ever elect an openly gay mayor. He was sworn in Jan. 1.
In his statement Monday, Adams apologized to the teen for making him lie about the relationship. He also apologized to colleagues and voters.
The young man, now 21, did not immediately return a request for comment.

What a slimewad!!! First, he has sex with a kid. Then, he lies about it. Then, he says, "Hey kid, I'm sorry I had sex with you." Then he says, "Constituents: I'm sorry I lied, but I thought you wouldn't elect me if this got out."

Ya think?!!! I'm not sure if a city can impeach a Mayor, but Portland should sit this asshole on the flagpole at city hall and leave him there!

We work so hard to earn the respect of the world, despite asshats like George Michael, Boy George, and now this stupid douchewad! It's so frustrating!

And on top of that, he's ruined the name of a perfectly good beer!

You,Miss G are funny as hell. "Ruining the name of s perfectly good beer" LOL!

I don't drink anymore, but the beer has more going for it than that man does. He could of made strides with the gay movement. Instead he takes it backwards into something it shouldn't be. Thankfully this man is NOT a representative of the gay friends I have. (Hugs)Indigo

Too bad they can't bring back impaling on pikes!

Shame on him for sullying the good name of Sam Adams!

Seriously, you're right--this type of behavior only fuels the fire of those who believe bad things about gays. Ugh.

At least it was not Sam Adams lite, which is my preference when available :o)

Truthfully, it probably won't ruin the beer for me. I do love me some White Ale. But you hit the nail on the head, calling him a slimewad.
