Anti-Gay Indiana GOP Lawmaker Phillip Hinkle Offered Male Teen Money for Sex, Emails Suggest

Indiana State Representative Phillip Hinkle, who voted to pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a man and a woman, has apparently been caught trying to bribe an 18-year-old male teen he met on Craigslist after what sounds like a sexual rendezvous/assault in a hotel room. Hinkle claims it's a "shakedown".

Hinkle The Indy Star reports:

The emails, sent from Hinkle's publicly listed personal address, ask the young man for "a couple hours of your time tonight" and offer him cash up front, with a tip of up to $50 or $60 "for a really good time."

The email exchange is in response to the Craigslist posting in which the young man -- who lists his age as 20 in the ad but says he is 18 years old -- says, "I need a sugga daddy."

The young man told The Star that they met, but that he tried to leave after the man told him he was a state lawmaker. He said the lawmaker at first told him he could not leave, grabbed him in the rear, exposed himself to the young man and then later gave him an iPad, BlackBerry cellphone and $100 cash to keep quiet.

The BlackBerry contained all the email and phone call evidence of Hinkle's relationship with the teen.

The young man, Kameryn Gibson, told the Indy Star that he posted an ad in the Craigslist m4m section. His sister Megan provided the paper with the emails:

Gibson said he and the man met but that they did not have sex. He and the sister, Megan Gibson, flatly denied any shakedown.

"I wasn't shaking him down, at all," Kameryn Gibson said.

Megan Gibson said she contacted The Star because she thought Hinkle's actions were "creepy" and, given his stature, that his actions should be made public.

The paper has printed the full email exchange (a MUST read).

The email offers "to make it worth (your) while" in cash, and offers a personal description: "I am an in shape married professional, 5'8", fit 170 lbs, and love getting and staying naked."

Here's the roll call on the marriage bill in case anyone is interested.

  3. You can't make this stuff up! I loved the fact that the sister, Megan, had Phil's blackberry and started getting emails and phone calls from family...LOL

  4. You HAVE to go read the story in the paper. It goes into a lot of the back and forth detail - very much worth the time to read.

    All he had to do do qualify this whole thing for a hollywood script was to close with "your money's on the dresser chocolate".

  6. Don't jump to conclusions. He obviously just needed a young strapping lad to carry his luggage.

  7. Very Hoosier. Is Kameryn's sister his pimp or what? Effed up on all sides: anti-gay politico cruising for man meat, young hustler working out of his sister's cell phone, pissed pimp sister blowing the whistle on politico to his wife and family. Sounds like homophobia gone wild! Wonder what the respective facebook pages are like this morning..

  9. They are going to crucify those kids. He'll get off with a slap on the wrist, this is Indiana, and they'll end up in jail for years. Hope they get a good lawyer.

  11. More hypocrisy from the GOP... the "gay old party"! Throw the book at him. Anthony Wiener was practically crucified just for sending pictures of himself!

  12. Gross!! 170lb and fit?! Yeah right. Plus he's like 70yo (probably said he was 50 lol)...I would have left too!!

    Posted by: ChrisMe | Aug 12, 2011 10:33:28 AM

  13. Now let's see if Andrew Breitbart does anything with this one. He pummeled Anthony Weiner for far less. GOProud will remain silent, Breitbart is on its board.

  14. Has Hinkle done anything else that makes him anti-gay besides vote in favor of marriage for heteros only?

    Posted by: Milo | Aug 12, 2011 10:53:54 AM

  15. Yes, crucify these hypocritical Republican lawmakers! -- but also don't forget to nail the hypocritical young guy who puts an ad on Craiglist for a sugar daddy, goes to meet him -- and then cries wolf. Two fouls, not just one!

  16. I agree with Kodiak...WTF is going on here. I don't know who to be more disgusted wtih. The lawmaker who is apparently a total jackass, the 18 y/o prostitute who is just perpetuating the negative gay stereotypes, or the insane sister who is his pimp and apparently enjoys ruining people's lives.

    My guess here is that Hinkle is minimizing the story, the sister is WAY over dramatizing the story and the prostitute is just out getting paid for his services again today.

  17. Another hypocrite exposed! I rejoice every single time these assholes are brought out into the light of day.

    Posted by: Jack M | Aug 12, 2011 11:01:38 AM

  18. This guy's a hypocrite but still I have to grieve for him:

    "Megan Gibson told Hinkle that she had informed his wife and family that he was gay.

    "Megan Gibson said Hinkle's response was: 'You just ruined me.'"

  19. I'm not shocked, not surprised, not even the least bit startled -- but very, very, very happy. Wonder how long he's been doing this and who will step forward now?

    Remember: EVERY single man who is anti-gay is really gay himself. EVERY SINGLE ONE.

  20. well if he gets kicked out from the state legislature he could always become a priest.

  21. We could introduce Representative Hinkle to Marcus Bachmann. PRICELESS

  22. It seems the wife can live with it and offered $10000 bribe to keep his job. Great family values. What probably happened was that the newspaper has paid more than $10000 for the story.

  23. I don't feel the least bit sorry for this man. You reap what you sow.
