Common wisdom says there are only two constant in life: taxes and death. If LGBTQ news reports are any indicator, however, another certainty could be added.
The more anti-gay a conservative is, the higher the chance they’re trying to cover up their own sexual “sin.” From stealing church money to buying expensive presents for men to being photographed stuffing dollars down a stripper’s g-string, these people had it coming.

GOP ex-congressman filmed stuffing dollars down a male stripper’s undies in Mexican gay bar
Schock, who made a splash in the nation’s capital with his clothing choices, Instagram photos, and interior decorating, resigned after being accused of illegally using campaign funds to finance his over-the-top lifestyle.
Schock was a reliably anti-gay vote for Republicans despite the parade of young men who visited his D.C. apartment and his outing by journalist Itay Hod in 2014. Hod claimed he had walked in on his male roommate and Schock showering together.
But the former Congressman is back on social media after moving to West Hollywood where’s he’s been spotted doing some of the most stereotypical gay things possible – hanging out in gay bars, posing shirtless with gay fitness junkies, and making out with a man at Coachella. Don’t forget to add shoving his hand down a Mexican stripper’s underwear to that list.
He still hasn’t come out.
