Gay MN GOP Senator Paul Koering Wines and Dines Porn Star

Openly gay Minnesota state senator Paul Koering was out on a date with gay porn star Brandon Wilde last weekend.

The Sword (nsfw) reports:

"Wilde first tweeted about his night with Koering on Sunday evening, writing, 'lol so funny!! in 45 mins im going 2 dinner with the senator :).' The senator, Koering, picked Wilde up and took him to Iven's on the Bay restaurant in Brainerd, where they dined on strip steak and beef medallions. In an exclusive interview with The Sword this morning, Koering was unapologetic: 'I don't see anything wrong with going out with him. Do I think that being a porn star is the best thing? No. But that's his choice. I think he's a nice guy.'"

Koering, who came out in 2005, supports Minnesota's ban on same-sex marriage and voted against a gay marriage bill in 2009, told Wilde the opposite (link nsfw):

"He told me he wants to be President one day! But first, he needs to win his re-election. He said once he was re-elected he'd work on gay rights issues and NOH8 stuff, you know? He said he'd make it so gay marriage was legal in Minnesota."

Koering denies expressing that to Wilde: "I don't remember telling him any of that. I don't support gay marriage. My job is to support my constituents, and that's not something they want."

But something Koering does want is a second date, and well, maybe marriage after that.

  1. This STATE senator is exactly the type of self-loathing fuck we don't need in public office. Anyone that actively works against equality for ALL, needs to be voted out of office. Period. I don't care how many pornstars half his age he fucks.

  2. Was out on a date or hired him for a few hours?

  3. There are so many things wrong with this whole scenario, I don't know where to begin... It's like did I just read all of that correctly? It's borderline Onion material in its ridiculousness.

  4. I guess this kid can date anyone he wants. I for one would *never* date a guy who was against marriage equality, no matter what his job was. 100% complete and total dealbreaker for me.

  5. Not that porn stars can't and don't settle down, or never need the protections of responsibilities of marriage, but I'm guessing Mr. State Senator here isn't looking for a long term relationship. So he feels perfectly OK with rejecting gay marriage in general. If he doesn't need it now, why would anybody else?

  6. "Koering, who came out in 2005, supports Minnesota's ban on same-sex marriage and voted against a gay marriage bill in 2009."

    Die in a fire, you traitorous fuck.

  7. Is it just me or are all politicians ignorant, self-serving, lying, two-faced, bastards?

  8. I'm sick of hearing gay politicians saying, "My constituents want me to discriminate against gay people, so I have to go along with it." If you are forced to vote against other (taxpaying) gay citizens, then find another fucking job self-loathing asshole! Does Mr. Koering even comprehend that he is HARMING other gay people with his actions?! Obviously not, since he's screwing porn stars on the side, he's got everything he wants out of life. What a selfish prick. Fuck you, senator.

  9. Obviously the guy doesn't want to be reelected.

    I saw the twinks solo video. He could hardly string a few words together to make an interesting sentence. I'm sure the guy just wanted a "date" from him.

  10. Came out in 2005? There's a difference in coming out and being outed. He was recognized in an upscale Minneapolis gay bar.

  11. With so-called friends like Koering, who the fuck needs enemies? Perhaps he will seek campaign contributions from Maggot Gallagher and NOM? Asshole.

  12. It had to be a 'Pay Date'. Most of the guys in porn do it. No secret there. And it's not as if Koering was actually 'dating'. He's probably no more interested in real relationships than he is in marriage. Just another politician buying a piece of ass. Nothing new. We're just not accustomed to seeing it done so openly. One more sign of how little respect Koering has for his own people.

  13. Senator Koering, if your constituents wanted you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? How about if they wanted to beat you to death? Would you oblige them? After all, if they WANT to, by your logic you HAVE to.

  14. Does anyone know of any African American elected official who has ever spouted vile drivel like "I'm racist because my constituents want racism?" I respect Michelle Bachman more than this asshole: she at least has the courage of her lunatic convictions.

    A tweeting near-adolescent twit is just what Koering deserves.

  15. What a pig. his job is to support the constituents that believe that he is a second class citizen?

    He's just a pervy Uncle Tom. Fuck this guy. What a disgrace to himself. He helps perpetuate the myth of LGBT people not wanting equality.

    I say we make the porn stars comments into a big deal, try and beat this thing up as much as possible and show this clown the way to the door.

  16. He'll die a lonely Bitter Fat & Bald old queen who has to PAY for sex.....All I know is, I DO NOT Associate with ANY Self-loathing Gay Dems or Republicans nor would I ever!

  17. The best any "Self-Loathing" gay man can do is hire a hooker - at least he did it in public, still tho he is an ass-wipe for his positions!

  18. Myopic, self hating, hypocritical asswipe. But enough about his good points.

  19. Brandon honey you can do much better. I hope you got well compensated.

  20. A reminder that the sleazy side of gay life is perfectly in tune with Republican values -- which need a stigmatized outsider class to define themselves against -- while gay love is what the right can't possibly accept.

  21. Why is it that every guy who appears in a porn video is described as a "porn star"?! There are certainly a certain number of guys who do qualify as "stars" in the industry, but is EVERYONE a star? Just askin' ....

  22. As a certain very popular gay blogger has said, sometimes it feels like the people we have to fight hardest are other gays - the closeted ones who feel their choice to live repressed lives is threatened by our insistence on being ourselves.

  23. OK, here we have a porn star and an out gay pol who...let's face it, he can date who he wants.

    But how or, perhaps more importantly, why did all of this drama get in the news

    Posted by: Chitown Kev | Jun 16, 2010 12:35:40 PM


  24. Um, this wasn't a date. This disgusting old man hired him (another disgusting young man...as whores are gross) for a price to be his companion. Make no mistake, kiddos...this was a john hiring a whore. And it should be used against him in the upcoming election...make a lot of hay out of this.

  25. I don't care for either of their professions, but who cares if they're dating
