The question of whether Florida Rep. Bob Allen, co-chairman of John McCain’s Florida campaign, tried to pay an undercover male cop $20 to give or receive a blowjob has been answered. According to the police officer’s report from the arrest (via Pandagon):

Allen engaged me in a conversation in which it was agreed that he would pay me $20.00 in order to perform a “blow job” on me. Allen stated that he wanted me to ride with him accross [sic] the river before he performed the act and gave me the money. Before entering Allen’s vehicle I identified myself as a police officer and detained him.

I’m glad we cleared that up. I should also mention that between 2003 and 2006, Allen voted with the Christian Coalition over 90 percent of the time.

Speaking of hypocritical Christian conservatives… Jack Burkman, a GOP political operative, conservative pundit, and former lobbyist for James Dobson’s Family Research Council, was just exposed as being on the DC Madam’s list.
