INDIANA: City Council Candidate Who Opposes LGBT Rights Outed For Gay Dating Site Profile

Brent Randall doesn’t want LGBT protections added to the civil rights ordinance of his Indiana town, where he is running for city council as a Republican. And as these things so often go, Randall has been outed for having a profile on Adam4Adam. The Terre Haute Tribune Star reports:

A prominent public personality, Randall serves as the radio voice for Goshen High School football and basketball on, head Goshen High School boys golf coach and relationship development manager at Eby Ford Lincoln in Goshen. He is currently running against Democrat Adam Scharf for Goshen’s District 5 City Council seat. Support from Randall’s “We Are Goshen” Republican team of candidates was swift and strong Friday afternoon.

“He is the same person today as he was yesterday and is the right person to serve on City Council representing District 5,” said Goshen Republican mayoral candidate Mary Cripe Friday afternoon. “We are deeply saddened to see someone’s private personal life be exposed, by no choice of his own, for what can only appear to be political motivations. His entire life is turned upside down. Our only hope is that this is not some type of political tactic by the opposing party, as we all signed the Fair Campaign Pledge.”

According to Randall, state law already protects LGBT citizens from discrimination. As you and Gov. Mike Pence know very well, Indiana has no such law.

  • vorpal

    I don’t have anything nice to say.

    • Keiffer

      …then come sit by me!

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Well I do !
      Until today, every person named Brent that I knew, met or saw a pic of have been HOT.

      Isn’t that nice?

      • vorpal

        I’m positive that some people out there find men with 12 chins attractive.
        (That’s nice too, isn’t it?)

        • motordog

          considering some of the things I’ve seen on deviantart…even this closet turd has a chance.

          • vorpal

            Oh, motordog… I hear you. I so, so hear you.

            Until deviantart, I didn’t realize that taking famous characters from video games and other media and making them ridiculously morbidly obese and featured in porn scenarios was a thing.

            I want what little innocence I had back.

          • GayOldLady

            You boys just need to stop looking at the deviantart, or is it hard to look away from, like a car wreck?

          • vorpal

            Believe it or not, there’s actually a lot of really great stuff on there! (Not to mention lots of super racy gay deliciousness featuring my extremely hot “video game” boyfriend! I just didn’t need to see a 600 lb version of him doing unspeakable things :(…)

          • Christopher Smith

            There totally is. 🙂 particularly BDSM stuff…

          • Furface

            Rule 34, Vorpal. Rule 34.

        • Ben in Oakland

          I was going to post “Brent, there are only 5 things I don’t like about you. your chins.” But you beat me to it. Thank the lord I don’t believe in for that, because I almost used up my mean quota for the day.

          • vorpal

            Oh, come now: lying and saying he ONLY has five chins is probably the nicest thing that one could claim about him.

            You are too sweet for your own good, Ben :-).
            (And your avatar used to be the cover photo on my facebook profile!)

          • Ben in Oakland

            Really? I’m too sweet? How…sweet!!!

            I didn’t mean to steal your photo. I just found it somewhere, since Grandma was demanding that I have an avatar, or be branded a nerd.

      • JT

        Fortunately, you’ve never experienced the ugliness that is wingnut Brent Bozell.

      • vorpal

        OMG. From the article:

        “Brent Randall, a prominent public personality”

        “Prominent” is definitely a NICE way of putting it :-).

    • Cuberly
    • Jamie_Johnson

      I like you.

  • Jack_Carter_USA

    You know, this happens so often we should just start assuming that anyone who is loudly anti-gay is in the closet until proven otherwise.

    • safari2bongaloo

      He’s too gay.

    • motordog

      Can we make it a “No Touch” list? Seriously, if these people are actually gay, then THEY should be forced into lives of celibacy. (Mind, if one CHOOSES celibacy, that’s fine…these assholes just don’t deserve love or passion).

      • safari2bongaloo
        • sach2

          That was funny!

        • Shoryo Tombo


      • popebuck1

        The sad thing about that idea is, if these guys had been able to get laid in the first place, they might not have turned out so bitter and hateful. Openly gay high school and college students need to start volunteering to seduce their local uptight Christianists – these guys need to be taught that sex is fun and not shameful BEFORE they get caught up in the destructive Republican evangelical lifestyle.

        • clay

          chicken, or the egg?

        • amati1684

          Good luck finding volunteers for that assignment; it really does fall under the heading of charity work.

          • Blake Jordan

            Maybe we set up a funding campaign that all LGBTs contribute to, so these brave soldiers that sleep with poison get compensated..

          • nebbish

            I’d happily seduce the Mormon lads who come a’calling every now and then.

          • Lee Cox

            And they’d be right to turn you down. They’re not there to be your sexual playtoys. They have a divinely-commissioned job to do, and they take it very seriously. I, for one, would have been highly insulted if you tried to seduce me like that during my missionary service — and I’m as gay as you are!

          • McSwagg

            “They have a divinely-commissioned job to do, and they take it very seriously.” LOL

            So it’s OK for you to ‘recruit’ others into your cult, but you are insulted when someone else tries to ‘recruit’ you? Not a double standard at all!

          • Lee Cox

            I’m not even going to dignify that ignorant, disrespectful, doubly offensive remark with a response. I will simply pretend that you didn’t make it.

          • McSwagg

            Ignore away. I am offended when your nut jobs knock on my door and insist that I have to listen to their invented nonsense about their imaginary ‘friend in the sky’ who is going to give them their own planet to rule when they die. If you want people to respect you, quit shoving your dogma down their throats and mind your own business.

          • Jafafa Hots

      • VodkaAndPolitics

        I say that all the time to my friends who are fine picking up “Discrete” or “DL” guys on Grindr. They almost always have wives and sometimes kids. Not only are those guys statistically more likely to engage in risky sex, I don’t think they should experience the joy of gay sex without paying the price of coming out.

    • Brendan Denehy

      I do assume that…

    • FAEN

      It seems the hypocrites never learn.

    • JoyZeeBoy

      I’ve assumed that was true since I was 12.

    • JT
    • JohnVHedtke

      I sure do. The odds seem to be in favor of it.

      • Beagle

        Or some combination of the three.

    • abel

      Man, I’ve been assuming that for years. My favorite example of reaction formation is Miss Tonette Perkins. I truly believe the man is a deeply closeted homophobic gay man.

    • Christopher Husbands

      I always have.

    • RVABREAD22

      How do you know someone didn’t create a fake profile?

      • Jack_Carter_USA

        Nice try, but he already said the profile is genuine: “My life has changed a lot over the last six years since my divorce… (The profile page is) still active. I do check it. I do talk to people. I’ve never met anybody from that profile. I do enjoy meeting new people of all different walks of life… I don’t even know if I consider myself bisexual or not. I just experimented a little since I was single again.” –

        • bamcintyre


        • RVABREAD22

          He has his enemies. Also, the gay agenda wants everyone to believe that anyone who speaks out even slightly against homosexuality is a “closet gay”. While that is true in some cases, I would say not. By that logic, people who march in gay pride parades and watch Glee must be straight!

          • Jack_Carter_USA

            Which part of “he already said the profile is genuine” do you have trouble understanding?

  • I’m shocked. Shocking. No really, this is totally unexpected.


    • BlueberriesForMe

  • chris james

    Such self-hatred this man must have. So if he doesn’t have any protections in Indiana why doesn’t he get fired for working around minors…I mean…he probably thinks all gays are pedophiles.

  • safari2bongaloo

    If the local law duplicates the “state’s protection”, then passing it would have no affect. So, why not assert local control and strengthen the state’s pre-existing protection? I dare you pudgy homocon.

    • Ray Taylor

      There is no “states protection” in IN.

  • typical rethuglican. . . .

  • Chris Baker

    “We are deeply saddened to see someone’s private personal life be exposed, by no choice of his own, …” except when you put up a profile on a gay dating/hookup sight, it’s your choice, and you risk being exposed.

    • TampaZeke

      Public figures give up a certain amount of their right to a private life. Even still, there is NO right to not be exposed for political hypocrisy.

      • Ben in Oakland

        More importantly. There is no right not be exposed as a poles-smoking, fudge-packing homo-hatin’-homo. That’s the problem with being in the closet. There is only one direction to go in.

        • Prixator

          “There is only one direction to go in”

          Is that from the back?

    • b

      Why were the deeply sad? Fucking guys is a joy. And when those guys want equality and protection, just give it to them, as you were so willing to give them your fucking dick.

    • MattM

      Not to mention the field day these same outraged folks would have if it was the Dem candidate whose hypocrisy was brought to light.

    • Guess

      Most troubling for the big guy is Memories Pizza has blocked his phone number for deliveries.

    • Duane Dimitrov

      Chris, I think you’re unaware of the rule that conservative politicians can act with impunity in whatever way they like.

      For example, having a profile on a gay dating/hookup site and loudly complaining about how evil LGBT people are.

      It’s just common sense when you think about it.

    • Sporkfighter

      As Mark Twain said, “Three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead.” Sharing a secret with the internet never works.

  • Hope he remembers to add “Self-loathing” to his Adam-4-Adam profile.

    • Judas Peckerwood

      In this case, I can understand the self-loathing.

      • Yeah. And come to think of it, shouldn’t it be Adam-4-Steve?

        • Ragnar Lothbrok


          • Yeah. Unless it’s one of those do yourself sites. Then I guess Adam-4-Adam makes sense.

  • delk


  • motordog

    Ugh…I hate that we so often end up being our own worst enemies! How fucked up is it that this world was able to take these lgbt people and twist them when they were young and impressionable to turn so viciously on their own. If every lgbt homophobe could just accept themselves (and others) as they are, the ranks of our enemies would be decimated.

  • Baby Dave

    I think we should make it a priority to out each and every GLBT republican in Indiana.

    • StSean

      i’d bet money that being this anti-gay and closeted AND a sports coach there will be some “bad touch” accusations coming his way soon.

    • bcarter3

      Damn! At the same time?

      You could easily expand the list to include old dead guys like Roy Cohn and Terry Dolan and Cardinal Spellman. Not to mention more religious grifters than you could count.

      Eh, on the personal side he’s probably hoping he’ll get more sex if he oppresses the people he wants to screw, just like straight rightwingers are about women.

      I’m actually hoping his only sex was with Rush Limbaugh, though I hear Rush prefers underage Latino boys.

    • JCF


  • I would love to see his A4A profile. I can only imagine the action he gets. Santa fetish, gainers, stuffers, bellys, he could be a rent boy. In the linked interview he refers to, “my heart of hearts.” He might want to focus on his heart before it blows up and kills the man.

    • KCMC

      epic chub chasers special

    • Reality.Bites

      In a place as small as Goshen I can’t imagine even a broadly appealing man would get much action. Those who appeal to more narrow tastes, I’d guess even less.

      • True story. I was fucking with a gun nut on twitter. He was a real prize, let me tell you. So I capped his IRL photo avatar, googled “micro penis photos” and then created a Growlr profile based on made up attributes, his pic and the photos. I’m on Growlr, so it was easy to just redo my own profile, new name, new pics, etc. After I was done, the profile went live, I capped it, then Tweeted it out to him and his followers. Much hilarity ensued.

        Do you want to know the amazing thing? Within minutes of the profile going live, my phone lit up like a loose Vegas slot machine. I couldn’t believe it. The amount of people in my own area who were eager to hook up with this greasy hair loser and his micro penis was mind boggling. Maybe it was a case of low hanging fruit (no pun intended) or fresh meat, but whatever it was, he was one hot ticket.

        • Reality.Bites

          I told you already, I was drunk and I meant to message the guy next to you. Those photos are small.

  • MikeBx2

    Not sure I’ve ever heard of Adam4Adam. I’m an open and proud 50 year old gay man and I learn about these sites from bigots who turn out to be closet cases. Fascinating.

    • Schlukitz
    • Arkansan

      I have learned more about the gay lifestyle from the straight bigots on news sites than I learned from being out and about for 35 years.

      • motordog

        “straight” bigots…we need to start using scare quotes the way they do.

    • LonelyLiberal

      Tru dat. I did it the old fashioned way and picked up my tricks at Home Depot.

      • motordog

        Oh, sweetie…we should TALK! Nothing like a blue-collar hottie on a Sunday afternoon; work boots, jeans, t-shirt with a contractor’s logo…scattered throughout my bedroom…I not proud to admit a touch of smugness when I’d note a kid’s seat in the back of their extended-cab pickup trucks.

        • LonelyLiberal

          I’ve always had a slight weakness for rough trade, working class guys. And I find a T-shirt with “Bill’s Plumbing” to be a challenge that must be met.

        “Discrete” instead of “discreet” — nice touch.

      It is exceedingly depressing to consider, even for a moment, how many tens of thousands of on-the-down-low, closeted, self-hating pieces of shit like this exist…just in the USA alone.

      And…it would be even more depressing to know how many of them, are in high positions to wreak havoc and destruction on their brothers and sisters lives just to advance their own self-interests.

      I know and respect the fact that Joe Jervis admonishes us not to wish harm or bad thoughts on those who say and do ugly things against LGBT people because they can pick it up and use it against us on anti-gay sites.

      Since this prick is one of our own and given the circumtances, I am sure that Joe won’t mind it I tell Brent Randall to eat shit and die.

        They keep saying that only 3 or 2% of the population is LGBT so they have every right to discriminate against us, which makes no logical sense. If all these homophobes came out I bet the actual number of LGBT Americans would be, at a minimum, 12% of the population.

        • Schlukitz

          You may well be right, Rebecca.

    • Sporkfighter

      You speak the truth. Internal demons torment those too weak to stand up and say “Fuck you, I am what I am, and I don’t need your approval.”

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Lands o’ Goshen! Look what he put on the wearegoshen website:

    ““Serving the people of the 5th district in Goshen with integrity and honesty is my #1 priority” Brent stresses. ”

    • To paraphrase the sentiment voiced elsewhere on this page: “Pay no attention to the self-loathing faggot with the dick in his maw.”

    • JCF

      “Brent stresses”

      Oh, since his outing, he “stresses” NOW!

    You BET the two-faced FRAUD deserves to be EXPOSED, this hypocrite who, to get elected, betrays his own!!

    • Macbill

      And may no one ever suck or be sucked by him. May he lead a suck-less life.

      • billbear1961

        He should be shunned.

    • RJ Tremor

      He’s not my brother, I would never consider him one of us.

        Certainly not now!

    • Homo Erectus

      Why did he think an A4A profile was a good idea fer chrissake?

  • TampaZeke

    I’m willing to start a Go Fund Me page to send him to China for some of those electro-shock, de-gaying therapies. I know it won’t work but it will give us a little hope that maybe THIS time there will be a miracle.

    • Maybe we should put those funds to better use and just buy all of the non-self-loathing GLBT folks in and around Goshen tasers.

      • Sporkfighter

        Better still, buy a gay Russian a round-trip plane ticket out of hell and put him on the return leg.

      So glad he’s not my type.

    And we are deeply saddened that while he sleeps with men, he doesn’t think his sexual partners deserve the same human and civil rights protections that straight people have.

  • Richard

    A typical Republican hypocrite.

  • greenmanTN

    Well land o’ Goshen! A political homophobe who turns out to be a closeted gay man? Will wonders never cease?! (And the answer seems to be that when it comes to this, NO they will not cease anytime soon.)

  • Jan Wesselius

    And the lady supporting him says ““We are deeply saddened to see someone’s private personal life be exposed, by no choice of his own,”
    But it’s OK if he makes other personal lives a sheer hell on earth.

      Your life would be far worse if you had to be him. Without self respect, there’s not much to life but eat-shit-sleep-repeat.

  • Jim

    Now that he’s been outed, he’ll find out soon enough if he’s right about LGBT anti-discrimination protections in Indiana law. How long is he going to be a high school boys golf coach, I wonder?

        *one minute later*

        don’t judge me for my choices in life, it’s like hard being a right-wing gay …
        yeah. it’s hard because of people like you, you troll.


        • William

          A guy I nailed many years ago asked, after we were done, if I was a faggot.

          • RJ Tremor

            “If your butt can’t tell, there’s no hope for you.” I hope that’s what you told him.

          • William

            I was speechless.

          • Reality.Bites

            If you mean “nailed” as in you were the top, and not just that you had sex with him, then traditional views of these things would suggest that HE was the faggot.

            Personally, I was never able to understand why the guy who managed to get an erection in the presence of another man and then orgasmed in his mouth or rectum, is somehow heterosexual while the man who may not have received any sexual pleasure at all was considered gay.

  • Refugay

    It’s much easier to use a position of power to manipulate and take advantage of a marginalized group of people without legal protections than those with equal protection under the law. Brent Randall, closeted, self-hating queer, can’t suffer having his dating pool diminished any further than it already is. Sad, for him, but he’s getting exactly what he deserves. I hope he’s shown no mercy.

  • dcurlee

    I sure he was just doing research ha. Asshole

  • Sk3ptic

    This story is so 2002. Or 1995. Or 1984. Or 1978. Screw it. That could go back forever.

  • rabbit_ears

    Hope gets hit with what they try to tar all gay teachers with, since he’s working with kids he should take his own advice and fire himself.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Perhaps he could get a fresh start working for FRC in North Korea.

  • RJ Tremor

    “We are deeply saddened to see someone’s private personal life be exposed, by no choice of his own, for what can only appear to be political motivations. His entire life is turned upside down.” I have no feeling of sympathy for someone who is a hypocrite. He can’t live his life in a lie and screw over others living honestly in the process. You don’t legislate from the glory hole.

    I’ve been asked to let everyone know Bill_bear will be coming by in a few minutes to comment. He’s having a bit of trouble getting out of bed.

    • clay

      I imagine he’s having some assistance, staying in bed.

    • rabbit_ears

      Poor Billbear! Looks like someone put up a glass wall around his bed while he slept. I blame the FRC.

  • sbd

    From the look of things, let’s be glad that only his sexuality and hypocrisy have been exposed.

    • noni

      They didn’t mention he is a lesbian.

      • GanymedeRenard

        Let’s not offend lesbians, shall we? No decent member of the LGBT community should be compared with this creature. 🙂

  • While these things usually turn out to be true, it strikes me that it would be remarkably easy to create a fake profile for anyone. Has there been a confession or admission from Randall?

    • Posted before I went to the original article. Looks like he admitted to posting and maintaining the profile.

  • LarryChemEngr

    That’s the standard Republican bullshit, that current law already protects minorities. It is a boldfaced lie, of course. But, let’s assume just for one minute that there already are effective laws on the books that protect minorities from discrimination. So, the worst that a new law would do is add a bit of clarity and maybe some redundancy. So, why the fierce opposition? Unless…wait for it….Republicans are full of shit.

    Sounds about right for Indiana. Most towns there have churches on every corner and almost everyone is full of Jeebus. Not to mention the state is highly Republican.

  • p5uwtCq

    You made yourself a homophobic hero by denouncing all those queers.
    But having your double life exposed is among your greatest fears.

    Your tenuous claims to moral superiority.
    Can never conceal your naked hypocrisy.

    Spreading the hatred in the name of your little tin god.
    But you’ve got some private pastimes your docile followers might find quite odd.

    If you obsess over someone else’s sexuality.
    It might be you, not they, who could use some therapy.

    Since when is it your business whom they take to bed?
    Why don’t you just clean out your own closet instead?

    You open your bible and begin to cherry pick.
    But maybe it’s you who’s in denial; maybe it’s you who’s really sick.

    What’s preached from the pulpit and proclaimed in the pews.
    Leads to another tragedy on the evening news.

    Its innocent victims suffer across the nation.
    All this holy hate-filled rhetoric is the true abomination.

  • James

    A, not surprised, B, hope nobody ever fucks the miserable bastard again.

  • Outlaw Woman

    Allow me to explain the pathology that drives guys like Brent Randall …
    guys like Brent like gay sex to be “taboo”, and “dirty”.

    For them, the sense of doing something secret and illegal is the attraction …
    That’s not to say that Brent isn’t gay, he is, but with gay marriage now legal, and being gay is generally more accepted across the nation, he loses that sense of being an “outlaw” and he hates it.

    • Schlukitz

      You’ve hit the nail squarely on the head.

      Creeps like Brent are as hooked on the thrill of “down-low” and “dirty” homo-sex as any crack addict.

  • Outlaw Woman

    Plus, I imagine in his little Indiana town of Goshen, no matter how much support his republican compadres claim to give him, he knows his life is going to completely change.

    Sports team announcer? Not in republican Goshen.
    High School golf team coach? Not in republican Goshen.
    Some sort of PR guy for a Ford dealership? Not in republican Goshen.

    He’ll find all that out soon enough as he sees all his republican “friends” keeping their distance.

  • Mark

    “His entire life is turned upside down”

    Because of the lie? – or because of the way the repug right wing fuckers treat him? Or both?

    • Steven Leahy

      Yes, he is quite the victim, isn’t he? Anything he gets as a result of this, he has coming. Somehow none of his crowd cared about the damage they did to the LGBT community. No sympathy here, ever.

  • Ninja0980

    Misery doesn’t love company asshole.
    You had no right to make other LGBT people suffer because of your own self-loathing hatred.
    I hope you die alone and miserable.

      A most intriguing question, actually.

  • Michael Abbett

    I’ve lived in Indiana for 52 years, gone through so many married men for kicks in my younger days. His type are a dime a dozen here. Back when the AOL chat rooms were the popular place for pickups, I guarantee you that about half the men in the M4M rooms were businessmen on the DL looking to hook up. Then I’d see them out with their wives later. Oh, the nervous looks of recognition. The closet is a horrible place and makes men do all sorts of paranoid and self-destructive things.


    omg i hope he goes BACK in the closet as hes one FUGLY old queen who NO one is going to want in the gay community!!!

    • TallBearNC

      Maybe that’s why he’s bitter. A bitter old queen taking it out on the gay community

      However he could come to my sub part of the community:bears

      My part welcomes all sizes, and from non furry to monkey furry heh

      Looking at him he’d be a “chub” unless he was furry all that case a bear. But most bears have facial and body hair

      Plus in the bear community, u r not old until u are usually 60+

      I’m not dissing mainstream as mainstream gay has gotten better at acceptance over the past 20-30 yrs

      But I sure someone would be into him in the bear community. Not me. I agree. He fell off the ugly tree and hit almost every branch on the way down

      Buy hey…I find guys hot that my own husband goes…YUK!!!! (Skinny, geeky, furry otters).. I actually have a wide range. But my point is I’m sure there’d b someone for him if:
      1) he stopped being republican
      2) dealt with his internal homophobia and embraced who he is

      Being rep. And gay is a deal breaker for most lgbt ppl. If u r rep. Many lgbt ppl won’t date u nor b friends with you – except other rep. Gays. I mean I get why some lgbt ppl are republicans..they have a lot of the republican belief sets but they wish their party accept gay ppl. I struggled with this from 20-25, but I stayed democrat cuz I could b part of a party that tore our rights down even if I had some republican beliefs…or I should say conservative

    I am never going to understand what passes for logic in the republican party.

  • Happy Dance

    I think if you put your profile and picture on a dating site, you are fair game to all those who see you and know of your hypocrisy! If you don’t want to get caught, then don’t be a douche!! No one would have said anything if you were not such a bagger!! And speaking of bags…..

  • DaveRob

    If you’re looking for sympathy, it’s in the dictionary under S. . .

    So the republican party of Indiana says outing someone is wrong and it’s wrong for anyone’s private life to be used for political purposes. And they said this with a “straight” face. The hypocrisy of some of these folks is truly astonishing.

  • SirGuy DeBrownsville

    It was said that he told inquiring reporters, “I was just… um… doing research into that debauched lifestyle… yeah, that’s it. Probing deeply into the homosexual lifestyle, sucking up as much information as possible, going deep into the bottom of their thinking… yeah… research.”
