Gay MN GOP Senator Paul Koering Wines and Dines Porn Star

Koering_wilde

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.

    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. Denis says

    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.

  3. DN says

    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.

  4. says

    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?

  5. Gridlock says

    “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.

  6. David in Houston says

    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.

  7. Mike says

    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.

  8. Mike in Asheville says

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

  9. Jay Croce says

    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.

  10. fhrblig says

    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.

  11. Bryan Harrison says

    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.

  12. James says

    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.

  13. Disgusted American says

    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!

  14. AlexInBoston says

    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!

  15. Distingue Traces says

    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.

  16. Sancho says

    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’ ….

  17. Andrew K says

    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.

  18. Chitown Kev says

    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

  19. TANK says

    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.

  20. TONI says

    I think the porn star is a much more respectable person than that walking piece of slime that would stay in power by voting against rights for gays and lesbians.

    Pure American Traitor.

    It is exactly the same as a black person voting against civil rights — or a Jew helping to hand out Stars of David in Nazi Germany — so they can get a bit of extra prestige.

  21. Walter says

    This was an escort … so the fine people of his district will re-elect a man who dates porn stars — as long as he agrees to maintain straight supremacy.

    He will burn in hell if there is one.

  22. Sean R says

    Some people are sooo judgmental here! Are some of you suggesting that if gay men are conservative, middleaged and aren’t greek gods and or BFF with Lady Gaga/ Madonna/ Elton they shouldn’t be dating porn stars? Not everyone can be ‘out’ or comfortable about it, but everyone who is part of the community should be respected.

    Seriously, you’re forgetting Eric Rofes comment that the community is a very big tent and there’s room for everyone … Beyond this, don’t really care as long as they had a good date and shagged!

  23. Don says

    Hey Koering. Next time you need to order a SALAD you fat fuck! I also have no doubt you tricked that poor boy into thinking you were a US Senator, and even then you probably had to pay top dollar for a couple hours of this poor kid having to watch you stuff your face with beef and then fuck your nasty ass.

  24. jamal49 says

    This is a classic GOProud/LRC moment. That ass-wipe would rather pay for it than let committed couples of the same sex get married because “it’s not what his constituents want”? Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggghhh! The hypocrisy of it all!

  25. Karl says

    Can’t we just take the kid’s story at face value? It would be polite. Calling him a whore is really unnecessary. And the bear paw tattoo is cute, though hopefully not permanent!

  26. Fahd says

    I guess this is an upscale website so the comments should adhere to that, but isn’t all this expression of disapproval kind of bourgeois.

    He’s openly gay. He’s neither married, nor does he have a domestic partner. Given the age difference, I’m suspecting its all about the sex.

    If his constituents don’t approve of him maybe — if you’re the suspicious type– hiring a “porn star” then they can vote him out of office.

    I am trying to break free from my puritanical upbringing.

  27. Zach says

    “Seriously, you’re forgetting Eric Rofes comment that the community is a very big tent and there’s room for everyone …”

    No there isn’t.

  28. walter says

    just a quick question what is with all these right repuks and their rent boys? they are so deep in the closet but really come out for the rent boys. the list just keeps getting longer. they all seem to hate that they are gay, but being with a cute guy seems to make it alright.

  29. bh says

    Koering is facing a primary challenge from a former State Representative in August. So considering the climate for incumbents, Koering is a good bet to lose the primary.

  30. TANK says

    that’s bullshit. He’s not for marriage equality because he’s a fuckin’ homophobe–a self loathing faggot. Plenty of people aren’t interested in dating or marriage material, and are for marriage equality. He’s scum, and from what I can tell, representative of gay republicans–those who actively work against our civil equality.

    And I sincerely hope that his opponnent makes a huge deal out of his whoring with a hewhore. If his constituents are opposed to gay marriage (and they likely are), then they will go batshit over this. This is enough to kill his political career, I think.

  31. MarkDC says

    Why do all these closeted Republicans always have The Porn Star Connection? Jeff “Gannon”, Matt Sanchez and now this asshat Koering.

    Gaytard douchebag.

    Oh, and major Gayface. He looks like one of those guys with lacquered furniture, show posters, and statues of David.

  32. Fred says

    Brandon, looks like you put a smile on Koering’s face – more like shit eating grin…

    I’ve got a cabin a few miles outside of Brainerd. I’ll buy you dinner, too. mtkaxtreme at aol

    But I’m not a republican or a senator, just a nice guy.

  33. says

    Who he “dates” is kind of irrelevant, but when you apparently have to pay people to be your dinner companion, it doesn’t bode well for mature thinking about marriage equality.

    Now, with a pet peeve. I get it when people make the Gayface comment about homophobes who claim they’re not gay, but I don’t get the purpose of shouting

    G A Y F A C E

    when someone is openly gay? Yep, he’s gay, he’s got a face, I think he knows that already. It’s what he doesn’t have that’s a problem, and that would be: a conscience.

  34. Greg says

    That’s what you get for dipping in the shallow gene pool with a piece of TPT with bear paw tats and whose only vocabulary words are probably LOL and OMG. Live by the sword, you know.
