Hinkle Misstep Goes Viral

Yep. Whatever happened between the state legislator and the hustler...the story has now hit the national news.

Phil Hinkle, father of the "In God We Trust" license plate and staunch anti-gay proponent has been caught with his metaphorical pants down in an upscale Indy hotel room with an 18-year-old man in search of a "sugga daddy". Oh, my!

Check out this version on the Huffington Post: here.

It seems that the "misstep" is being swept under the rug, reports Advance Indiana: "The word on the street is that IMPD is not investigating the incidence as a crime by request from higher ups; instead, party leaders are being given time to convince Hinkle to quietly resign his seat and just allow the incident to fade away."

I liked the fact you called the man a hustler which is probably what he is.

As far as the "In God We Trust" license plate, Hinkle was only a co-sponsor of that bill as was about every legislator in the State of Indiana. Regardless, I'm also pretty sure that being gay and being religious are not mutually exclusive.

Yes, this "Hinkle Misstep" and the horrifying stage collapse last night at the Indiana Fairgrounds, causing deaths and injuries, have put the spotlight on Indianapolis world-wide. Tragic!
