Washington State Rep. Richard Curtis (R-La Center) got more than a rock in his bag this Halloween.
"I have not had sex with a guy," declared Curtis.
A Republican state legislator from southwest Washington had sex with a man he met at an erotic video store and then told police he had been targeted in an extortion attempt, according to police documents released Tuesday.
(Curtis) told police he was the victim in an extortion attempt by Cody Castagna at the posh Davenport Tower hotel on Oct. 26, search warrant documents said.
Castagna, 26, of nearby Medical Lake, told police that Curtis, 48, agreed to pay him $1,000 for sex, then reneged on the promise. Police reports also said witnesses told them Curtis dressed in women's lingerie at the erotic store, and records showed Curtis purchased two gay pornographic films from the hotel to watch with Castagna.
Gosh. Next, Curtis will tell us he was afraid of the black guys in the video store--the old Bob Allen defense.
