Wes Goodman is the Republican state legislator for Ohio who ran on a religious right agenda of opposing LGBT rights and same sex marriage. His career ended last week after the discovery of Goodman having sex with a man in his office. Things that makes this legislator less of a good man is not his apparent homosexuality but his dishonesty and hypocrisy. He is not only married to a woman but has been a leading voice against homosexuals.
Goodman, 33, was elected on “family values” and “natural marriage”, a platform that came crashing down according to the Columbus Dispatch, when he was found in the intimate scene at work.
Goodman’s Twitter account describes him as “Christian. American. Conservative. Republican. Husband to @Beth1027.” Nevertheless, he appeared to have lived a double life including pursuing other men at work.
The Human Rights Campaign previously listed Jordan in their Hall of Shame in 2014 for his work to block marriage equality in the District of Columbia.
Despite such allegations, there is no sign of a decline in faith-based politics, as vividly shown with Roy Moore in Alabama.
