Anti-Gay Ex-Drag Queen Candidate Steve Wiles Got 27 Percent of Vote in Failed Primary Bid

Steve Wiles, the anti-gay GOP candidate for the state senate in North Carolina who is opposed to same-sex marriage and is a former drag queen who went by the name Mona Sinclair, received 27.49 percent of the vote in yesterday's primary election in his very conservative District 31, but failed to win.

WilesWrote Wiles on Facebook on Sunday:

I'm impressed by the way this story was used to present me to the conservative right as a gay advocate while at the same time presenting me as anti-gay to the gay community. THAT...is talent! I am a Christian...I try to live a life that reflects my beliefs...I rarely, if ever, hit that mark! Meanwhile, I've maintained life-long friendships with a few people from the "club" days. One person springs to mind, although I will not call names, who is a former Miss Gay America, NC USofA and has performed successfully all of his adult life - he is one of the most loving men I've EVER known...Loving and accepting of everyone around him. He would do ANYTHING for his friends....I respect that in a person. He knows (and always has known) of my conservative stand on issues like gay marriage; he accepts that although he doesn't agree with me.

To some, I'll be known as a hard worker or a loving son...to some, I'll be known as someone who has always stood up for what I thought was right at the time - even if it was wrong! To some, I'll be known as a person who will ALWAYS admit my short-comings and my faults. To some, I'll be thought of as anti-gay...and to a select few, I'll just be a "fag." Know that no matter which group YOU fall into - I have no hard feelings toward you and respect, not only your opinion, but your right to have that opinion.

  6. Make no mistake, Steve is an Aunt Mary, a gay antigay "side b gay christian". I.e., he lives a celibate life now and is ashamed and repressive towards his sexuality.

    He is a monster, a living demon and a rascal. May he fall into the shadows of history and be forgotten.

  8. The GOOD thing is he received 27.49 % of the vote.

    North Carolina where "good 'ol boys" STILL rule when they are not caught in drag.

  9. There's room for everything. Even Indian transexuals.

  10. I agree with Anontruth. He seems like one of those Christians that thinks "I am attracted to men, but if I don't act on it or acknowledge it, then I'm not gay".

  14. I'm surprised he got that high a percentage. Are there really that many closeted gay republicans in North Carolina?

  15. I'd like to know 2 things: 1) how many candidates in that Primary, 2) how many actual votes did he get in that 27.49% of the votes....Keep in mind this is a GOP Primary and only registered GOP voters can actually vote in it... just curious

  17. Actually you lost Bollox, but it will be too late when you realize it.

  18. Can someone explain to me why "admitting one's shortcomings and faults" is being touted as a virtue here? I don't understand how that is supposed to impress us.

  19. Just another homely dude who gave in to the radical right, he has a weak will.
