OHIO: Family Values GOP State Rep Resigns After “Inappropriate Behavior” In His Office With Another Man

The Columbus Dispatch reports:

State Rep. Wes Goodman, who consistently touted his faith and conservative values, abruptly resigned late Tuesday after being confronted with evidence of inappropriate conduct with another man inside his Riffe Center office, the second Ohio lawmaker to fall within a month.

House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, R-Clarksville, met Tuesday afternoon with the Cardington Republican soon after the speaker became aware of an incident from weeks ago in the lawmaker’s office that, sources said, involved a male in a consensual situation.

No harassment complaint, sexual or otherwise, was filed against Goodman. But someone, reportedly not a staffer, who knew of or witnessed the incident informed House Chief of Staff Mike Dittoe of the situation early Tuesday afternoon.

Cleveland.com reports:

Goodman, 33, was elected to the 87th district seat in 2016 after working for the Conservative Action Project, a network of economic, social and national security conservatives. He also worked for U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan for more than six years, promoting “promoting constitutional, fiscally responsible, pro-family policies,” according to his 2015 candidacy announcement.

Jordan’s office said no allegations of wrongdoing nor accusations of misconduct were made during Goodman’s tenure there. “Congressman Jordan is deeply disappointed by this troubling news, and believes Mr. Goodman’s resignation was the best course of action for the Ohio House of Representatives, Mr. Goodman’s constituents, and his family,” spokeswoman Melika Willoughby said in an email.

Goodman’s website hails his commitment to “natural marriage.”

Family. Healthy, vibrant, thriving, values-driven families are the source of Ohio’s proud history and the key to Ohio’s future greatness. The ideals of a loving father and mother, a committed natural marriage, and a caring community are well worth pursuing and protecting.

Life. Human life begins at conception and is to be protected under the laws of God, nature, and the state of Ohio. At the statehouse, this means enacting legislation that reduces abortions. In our cities and towns, this means encouraging communities to provide support and safety networks for single mothers and urging fathers to involve themselves in their families.

According to the AP, Goodman regrets bringing “personal struggles and trials” into his public life. Uh huh.

      • Boreal

        Two possibilities: Either he finds Jeebus, who always shows up after these events
        Or
        He comes out as a proud homocon and Joins the LCRs, thus maintaining his self loathing and ability to circumvent gay rights for the icky librul homos.

        • AmeriCanadian

          Or a third possibility. He renounces his “dalliances” and stays in the closet visiting the tea rooms along the expressways.

          • Boreal

            That’s part of possibility one. Jeebus forgives all and if he can convince his wife that he still likes the vagina.

          • Lizard

            He could be bi.

        The homeowners told police they were home at about 4:45 p.m. Saturday when someone walked in an unlocked back door. The man, wearing only a tight T-shirt and black high heels, then realized he was at the wrong house and left, according to Rutherford police Capt. Patrick Feliciano.

      That was exactly my reaction! What’s inappropriate in having consensual sex with another adult? It’s not clear to me why he resigned. Is it the sex with a man part? The cheating part? The sex in his office part? I don’t know about the third, but the first two are certainly not crimes.

        2) I have been going to their rural county every other weekend since 1985 and there is a whole younger generation (now the next) who know about us. They grew up knowing me.
        3) They want to stay on our good side, they use our home overnight when they have to come to Columbus for decent out patient care.

        SO, tenderly embracing his wife with whom he obviously shares a deep, physically intimate relationship. Momma always said to keep your hands in your pockets while shopping– what’s his excuse after he’s married?

    • clay

      I don’t think the Duggars approve of tops that exposing, and Schock prefers more worked out guys who don’t wear that belt OR those jeans.

    • Chucktech

      All snark aside, this woman probably had no idea. And IMO, she doesn’t deserve to have her life fucked up by this little twerp. She should divorce his closeted ass and move the fuck on with her life.

      • AmeriCanadian

        In the words of our inept “leader”…she knew what she signed up for (by marrying a public figure).

      • TominDC

        She was perfectly fine with her husband’s public stance on “family values” that keep people in closets, marrying people of the opposite gender.

        So yeah, her hands aren’t exactly clean.

      • Chitown Kev

        eh….she probably had an idea but either couldn’t process it or she simpl didn’t care unless it went public

      I would imagine that his wife, for all of her sweet looks, shares his vicious right wing ideology. You just don’t associate with, let alone marry, someone whose views are that extreme if you don’t share them. Sorry little lady, but you went fishing in a toxic pond and pulled out a stinker.

      His lack of courage to face life as a gay man must have made his life a deserved hell.

      • clay

        Yeah, she didn’t get that hair without some serious control issues.

        • prixator

          And look at how tightly she is holding on to him. If they actually do have sex (with each other), I’d wager she’s on top. Perhaps a strap-on involved?

    Molesting multiple kids over many years doesn’t boot you off the ballot as long as those children are female. One “incident” involving a consenting adult who happens to be of the same sex? Gone. Those priorities aren’t fucked up at all, no sirree.

    As a side note, “At the statehouse, this means enacting legislation that reduces abortions” is a pet peeve of mine. The kind of anti-choice legislation conservatives pass doesn’t reduce abortions. At all.

    • AmeriCanadian

      Wasn’t this a self-imposed resignation though? What would have happened if he hadn’t resigned? Would he be expelled? I’m curious now.

      • BearEyes

        I suspect he was pushed

      If he hadn’t run his mouth with all that “family values” crap, I would have advised to come clean, say his office wasn’t an appropriate place, remind everyone it was consensual, and tell everyone to fuck off about it and that he’s not going anywhere.

      But, he DID run his mouth with all that “family values” crap, so fuck him.

            My best friend is similarly affected. Well except when it comes to Judy Densch. He hates the poor dear. 🙁

          • Silver Badger

            It is an affliction, but at least a harmless one.

    The appearance is he was forced to resign because it was a gay liaison. I find any Republican who is gay to be repugnant, but I suspect if he’d been caught with a woman it wouldn’t have been reported nor would he have been forced to resign.

    OK, so the guy was getting a quickie in the office. Consensual. Yeah, it’s kinda tacky (pun) to do it in the office. But not a crime. So why is this guy resigning? Oh, yeah, the hypocracy.

    Is this our version of the 1980s daycare molestation frenzy?

    • Treant

      No, because they keep admitting the charges and have corroboration that they did, indeed, succumb to the mighty power of the Big D.

    • Gustav2

      Wienstein Effect

      • gaycuckhubby

        Agreed

      • Treant

        Probably. These things do tend to release from the floodgates in cycles.

        But it’s not the daycare molestation frenzy if we demand proof positive in each case. Hard as that is for the victim, I’m going to be shouting “not guilty” until proven.

        • Natty Enquirer

          I hope that takes more than a second accusation.

          • Treant

            At one, I’m neutral. At two, I’m wondering. At three (assuming no collusion nor other issues), the politician is on my crap list.

      Well it’s certainly not a good time to be publicly promiscuous.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Cute news anchor, that Mark Taylor.

  • marshlc

    So, I’m asking seriously – what are the chances this causes him to take a long hard look at his life, come out, get out of that marriage, get out of that political party, and start living the life he should have been living all along? Does that happen?

    I sure hope that happens.

    • He’ll say he’s been forgiven. Then revert back to exactly what he was doing.

    • Gigi

      Slim to none. He’s an indoctrinated fundie.

    • madknits

      Zip. Zero. Zilch. Bupkus.

  • Gigi

    If he was being “inappropriate” with a woman I doubt the person who caught them would have turned him in. Even if they did, if he was straight he would have held a press conference with his wife and children by his side, asked for privacy, admitted that “Satan” was at fault, confessed that god had forgiven him, and refused to resign.

    • Gustav2

      In the last few weeks there has been 2 Republicans and one Democrat who had to leave the legislature, this is the only gay one. Weinstein Effect.

  • gaycuckhubby

    Al Franken is being accused of groping

    • Treant

      Citation required, and second accusation required. Franken doesn’t have that rep, so…I’m not inclined to believe it on first word.

      Not that I ever do believe it on first word. 🙂

      • gaycuckhubby

        There are pics of him groping a sleeping soldiers breasts

        • marshlc

          That’s not good. Citation?

        • Tomcat

          Actually from the picture he may not have even touched her.
          He may have just pretended to touch her.

          • Tomcat
          • Lizard

            I dunno…look at the shadows. He’s either touching her or less than a centimeter away.

          • Tomcat

            A centimeter away from a soldiers gear is still a long way.
            And it is obvious he was doing this for humor.

            But if people feel it is necessary for him to go I guess there will be another opening for a GOP senator soon.

          • Lizard

            If nothing else, the joke is in bad taste, but I’m not sure that’s an offense worthy of resigning. It’s the other accusation about sexual assault that worries me.

          • Treant

            While I do see shadow under his fingers, indicating that he’s NOT touching her but extremely close–although the fingertips require more analysis. At the very least the photo is extremely questionable.

            If a setup, it’s not particularly funny, but one wonders why he’d do this as anything other than an understood prank given that the room definitely has four people in it at least.

            If not a setup, the floor analysis is that it’s extremely crass, and I can certainly go on from there depending on the circumstance.

            While I wouldn’t’ve wanted some high school photos released in the news (not that I’m newsworthy), Franken’s a grown-up and there’s no excuse even for tasteless humor.

          • Tomcat

            He should OWN it, Explain it and apologize for it and ask her for her forgiveness but nothing more.

          • Treant

            I tend to agree in this instance. Unless more comes out, this is not resignation-worthy.

          • Lizard

            Realistically, I don’t see his career ending over this. Any good PR liaison could get him out of this. Short of more accusations, I see his career weathering it, though it might stop a presidential run in 2020 depending on how it’s handled.

            That’s doesn’t take into account whether or not he should resign or be forced out over it.

          • Mike C.

            Or at least explain the picture and its context.

          • Gustav2

            He has in a statement.

        • Treant

          Citation still required. He’s a comedian and has been on visual media for decades.

        • clay

          is it the sleeping soldier who’s doing the accusing?

          • gaycuckhubby

            She saw the photo. Also has other complaints while she was awake

      • Tomcat

        But there are pictures!

    • Gigi

      Sounds like a right wing plot to take down someone that they despise.

      • gaycuckhubby

        But it isnt when Rep are accused?

        • Guess

          nope! no right wing plots ever! 🙂

        • Mike C.

          A right wing plot against another right winger? It could happen I guess.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Then left wing plots?

    • The_Wretched

      And relevant how?

      • gaycuckhubby

        An OT news update. Thats all

    • Mike C.

      ‘Franken said he does not remember the incident the same way but acknowledged the photo “wasn’t” funny.

      “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann. As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasn’t. I shouldn’t have done it,” he said in a statement.’

      Sounds/looks like an unfunny skit and photo op. Not even remotely the sane as a man who attacked a 16-year-old waitress and left her bruised and humiliated on the roadside.

  • LeeCMH

    Had it been a woman, the GOP would have tried to cover it up. From their POV, he was a good-ole-boy who made a mistake.

        • Dayglo

          Thanks. He’s cooked.

            Honestly, after reading the allegations and his statement, I doubt it. Assuming no more accusers come forward, his career should weather it with a decent PR liaison.

  • Mark Damon

    This morning, I was watching a TV movie from 1998, “A Change Of Heart” starring Jean Smart as a happily married woman who discovers her husband is gay. My first thought was “Boy, this is dated” but then…maybe not! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8e7e35684ff66a8923ac7ae5337123e72b7480eeff49242667687cfd7282b23e.jpg

      • Mark Damon

        Touche!

    • Ernest Endevor

      Unfortunately it’s not dated at all. Our safe cities have expanded in number and there is a general raising of ‘acceptance’ but on a personal level many men and women are still terrified to face their truth.

    • TominDC

      It’s only dated if you live in the more civilized parts of the country.

      I was in a gay bar in West Virginia this past summer, and I met quite a few gay men there who were on the down low (married to women and had kids).

      http://thehill.com/homenews/news/360656-woman-accuses-al-franken-of-kissing-groping-her-without-consent

      ‘Franken said he does not remember the incident the same way but acknowledged the photo “wasn’t” funny.

      “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann. As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasn’t. I shouldn’t have done it,” he said in a statement.’

    • Lizard

      There’s a very tasteless photo circulating where he appears to be grabbing a woman’s breasts, along with an accusation that he “forcibly kissed” a woman for a skit on one of his overseas comedy trips.

      I’m inclined to think that the “joke” was that he couldn’t actually touch anything through all the body armor and that translates very badly in a photograph where we don’t know what she’s wearing. It isn’t funny because a man should never grab a woman’s chest (no matter what she’s wearing), and he’s said as much.

    • Leo

      It’s more than just the photo but that’s what’s trending. Everyone can look further down the thread as I’m not posting the link again. Groping and kissing, etc. I’m arguing for consistency for the situation beyond the photo. Cleaning house needs to happen now and be consistent across the political spectrum. I’ve said that from the beginning. I’ll leave it there.

    Why are so many homocons white Christian and closeted? Is the money that good?

    • Ben in Oakland

      No. The butt sex in the broom closet is that good.

    • clay

      That’s the homocon politicians. The homocon preachers, however, aren’t always so white.

      • BeaverTales

        I’m having trouble thinking of a non-white homocon who has run for political office on a platform of “natural marriage” and fighting LGBT rights.

        Christian faggots denying our rights from the pulpit? I’ll concede they come in many colors.

        Congress is mostly a bastion of white privilege. The damage that can be done there is more immense than being an elected dogcatcher in Alabama

        Help me out here. Names?

    • No. Every Sunday wee gaylings have to sit and suffer through a lecture telling them their honest and “god given” sexual desires are wrong, will lead them to roast in hell forever, etc. And while many of us were forced to sit on those hard pews each Sunday, without their hate spew having any effect, on others it was destructive to their very cores. In the dark of night, they know they are GLB, but can’t accept the breaking ranks to live their truth.

            Ironically, Wes’ office is located in Columbus Ohio.

            Columbus is one of the most gay-friendly cities in the mid-west.

            There is a plethora of choices for gay men and lesbians to socialize and not just bars.

            It is a tragedy for a person here in Columbus to feel he cannot go to forums with gay people because of his hateful politics and, instead playing in his office.

    These people live by the old Victorian rules…public virtue, private vice. Their entire lives are abut ‘virtue signalling’ …condemning others for doing the very things they do.

    And when you examine such anti LGBTI people you find one (or a combination) of:

    (1) They are heterosexual and having affairs,
    (2) They are engaged in some sort of criminal activity.
    (3) They are a closeted gay person.
    (4) They are a child sex abuser.
    (5) They are protecting child sex abusers.
    (6) They commit domestic violence on their partner and/or children.

    The correlation is near 100%

    if it was consensual, what could the inappropriateness be? were they fucking on top of the desk where all could see? if it was a private kiss or squeeze of the genitals, I’m having a hard time seeing the problem here. Was the person who saw this a peeping tom?

    • Dom Saunders

      Right? We always judge the people being caught but we never judge the person who caught them in the first place. Even if whatever he was doing was in an inappropriate location, what the hell was the other guy doing where he was at the right place and time to catch them anyhow?

      • Ann Kah

        I’ve just addressed that in the post above. He had a wife. It’s her business.

        • Dom Saunders

  • The Professor

    Any video? 😉

  • ColdCountry

    If it was consensual, and he didn’t leave the office door wide open, than it’s none of anyone’s business.

    • Ann Kah

      It’s his wife’s business. How would you like YOUR spouse (you know, the one to whom you made solemn vows and private promises) to stand up in public and, in essence, tell the world that the person he married was not enough for him?
