Florida Rep. Bob Allen Pleads 'Not Guilty' to Gay Sex Charge

Florida Rep. Bob Allen, who was arrested for solicitation in after offering an undercover police officer $20 for the opportunity to perform oral sex, entered a written plea of not guilty in court on Thursday. Neither Allen nor his lawyer were present at the hearing. Court records were released on Wednesday which detailed Allen's explanation following his arrest.

Bob_allenFlorida Today reports: "According to the report, Allen said he went to the bathroom to avoid a lightning storm that was about to start. The National Weather Service said there had been inclement weather in the area. The undercover officer went into a stall next to Allen's. Allen knocked on the officer's stall door to ask if he was all right, according to Lau's report. Allen told Lau he was afraid he was going to be robbed and suggested going across the A. Max Brewer Memorial Parkway. 'Mr. Allen stated that he wanted to lure (the officer) with him and ultimately get to the guard shack entrance to the Space Center where there was security,' Lau wrote. 'Mr. Allen claimed he was in fear of (the officer) which is the reason he wanted to have (him) get in the car with him so that Mr. Allen could drive to the security gate.' That route cuts through the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. The nearest KSC gate is about eight miles from the park along a paved two-lane road lined with native Florida brush and wetlands. The Titusville Police Department is about the same distance away. According to Lau's account, Allen did not ask for an attorney until after describing the robbery scenario. But Eisenmenger said the recorded interview indicates Lau knew about Allen's earlier request for a lawyer."

He is set to appear in court on Monday to see if he can have the charges dismissed.

  1. Let me get this straight. He's afraid he's going to be robbed, so his brilliant idea is to lure the would-be mugger into his car so they can drive down a lonely 2-lane road to a guard shack 8 miles away? That's the craziest bulls**t he's come up with yet. What would Jesus do, Mr. Family Values? Make up more lies?

  3. He forgot the part where, to avoid being robbed, he offered the officer $20 and a blowjob. He also forgot the part where Nancy Reagan and the space aliens came into the washroom looking for Santa Claus.

    Maybe he's looking to get off by reason of insanity?

  4. Make your story as convoluted as possible and you just might confuse people enough to render it plausible. It works for my four year old niece so perhaps his attorney recently graduated from the same law preschool?

  5. Wait, this completely contradicts his earlier excuse.

    Hello, reporters? Could you actually do your fucking jobs? Seriously, this shit is getting tiresome.

  6. He knocked on the stall of complete stranger to ask if he was all right, because there was a big, bad, nasty, rain shower forecast that day? What was it, the Devil's Rain, he was afraid the stranger in the next stall might be melting? This freak sure flies into a state of panic easily.

    "Oh my God, it's going to rain, how will I survive this horrifying calamity! I want to live Goddammit, LIVE!!! I'd even give another man a blowjob if I have to, anything to survive!"

  10. keep right on this story guys! i don't want to see this little rat squeeze out of this!

  11. Well, you've all said it.

    I don't know how many times he has changed his story now and this "official" story confused the hell out of me.

    I really want to see where this goes. And I just love that image of him used every time w/ this story cuz he looks so pathetic!

  12. So, before he was afraid of black people, and that didn't play well. Now he's afraid of the police, and he expresses his fear by knocking on their bathroom door and trying to lure them away? Of course, this being Florida, he'll probably be acquitted.

  13. Maybe he was just there to use the phone.

  14. So now that I read the full Florida Today article, they are trying to get this story thrown out because he wasn't read his Miranda rights according to his lawyers. This was the story he told the police right after being arrested.

  15. Maybe it's not JUST Gay Republicans who are creepy--it's just closet cases in general.

  16. If Mayor Naugle in Ft. Lauderdale were being honest with the people of his city he would point out the fact that Allen is the REAL face of the average man who has sex in public restrooms; "straight" identified, (heterosexually) married with children.

    It's not usually out, proud gay people who seek sexual release in public bathroom stalls.

    Yet another inconvenient truth for the fundies.
