Naughty naughty! Republican evangelical Tea Party politician Tim Scott had to come clean recently about his broken “vow of virginity” after it was discovered that he had taken a lingere store manager out for a sexy getaway weekend. Oh the scandal! A 46 year old single Christian man has to admit he’s not a virgin.
The story of an innocent Republican virgin.
When Rep. Tim Scott entered public life in 1995 he was a trailblazer, the first black Republican to be elected in South Carolina since Reconstruction. At the time, he was a 30 year old bachelor campaigning on his strong religious convocations.
He proudly told audiences he had never had sexual contact with a woman because it was against God’s word (and cause girls are yucky!).
After 13 years in county government, he was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives. In 2010, he rode the Tea Party movement into election to the US House — one of just two black Republicans and the first elected from South Carolina in 114 years.
Tim Scott, after years in politics, has lost the battle to hold onto his virginity.
After 16 years in public life and winning a seat in the US House, Scott, now 46 and still unmarried, admits he is no longer a virgin. The information came to light when he notified the House Ethics Committee he had to pay back a conservative think tank for part of the three-day getaway because he invited Zee Patel, a lingerie store manager, to stay with him, instead of his aunt.
Here’s what Scott has to say about his strong stance on sex before marriage:
‘Yeah… Not as well as I did then,’ Scott told the National Journal from his office on Capitol Hill.
‘The Bible’s right. You’re better off to wait. I just wish we all had more patience.’
Is this another case of Republicans saying “do as I say, not as I do?”. We wonder what kind of sex education he’s voting for….
