SACRAMENTO (CBS13) ―



Sources tell CBS13 a state senator from Southern California was arrested for allegedly driving drunk after leaving Faces, a gay nightclub in midtown Sacramento, early Wednesday morning.





The California Highway Patrol pulled over Senator Roy Ashburn at 2:00 a.m. Wednesday after an officer noticed a black Chevy Tahoe swerving at 13th and L Streets.



Ashburn, a father of four, is a Republican Senator representing parts of Kern, Tulare and San Bernardino Counties with a history of opposing gay rights



When the officer stopped the state-issued vehicle, the driver identified himself as Senator Ashburn. He was arrested without incident and charged with two misdemeanors: driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol level higher than .08% or higher.



A male passenger, who was not identified as a lawmaker, was also in the car but was not detained.



Ashburn was booked into the Sacramento County Jail and released on $1,400 bond.



Ashburn issued a statement on the arrest Wednesday afternoon:



"I am deeply sorry for my actions and offer no excuse for my poor judgment. I accept complete responsibility for my conduct and am prepared to accept the consequences for what I did. I am also truly sorry for the impact this incident will have on those who support and trust me – my family, my constituents, my friends, and my colleagues in the Senate."



Ashburn served six years as a state Assemblyman before being elected to the State Senate. According to Project Vote Smart, Ashburn has voted against every gay rights measure in the State Senate since taking office.

Well yes, that goes without saying. If they're single and go to a pro, then that's just sad. If they're MARRIED and they go to a pro, why then they're just sparing their darling wife from their baser urges. I mean, it just wouldn't do to stick your d**k in the very same mouth that kisses your children goodnight.



Oh, and the hookers are for the business travelers. Or the politician's assistants.

No, no, Joy. It's an ESCORT.

Escorts are for the high-ranking Democrats.
Call girls are for the junior Democrats.
Prostitutes are for the Libertarians.
Dungeon mistresses are for the junior Republicans who want to be spanked and have cigarettes put out on their ass cheeks.
And gay prostitutes are for the high-level Republicans.

It's call girls Laura, gosh not prostitutes...haha.



Democrats like to say call girls..you know how they like to distinguish between the two and say they slept with a call girl instead of a prositute...please just a high class hooker no difference.

They just need to come out of the closet and stop being hypocrits. The Republican politicians who tend to be the loudest at pushing an anti-gay rights agenda usually turn out to be gay. HELLO, to those idiots living in DE-NIAL.Be yourself and stop fighting it because all they do is embarrass and shame their families due to the lies they have kept them all wrapped up in. How confusing to be told being gay is awful and wrong and then to find out.... guess what your daddy who has been teaching you that and shouting it from the roof tops is actually Gay.

HAHAHA

Though I have heard (I believe it was quoted on PDM some time ago) that a lot of republicans privately are for a lot of the things they oppose publicly. It's all just pandering to the public and what they think the public wants to hear. LOL!!!

Sounds about right -- a right-winger is caught partaking in the exact same actions that he condemns and that he would legislate others from doing. Why don't they just call it the "Hypocrite Party" and be done with it, already?

No Esther, he'll be fine, they'll just send him to gay camp to get de-gayed. All will be well, it's a sickness.

I'm starting to think there are a lot more gay Republicans than gay Democrats. It's becoming a theme.
