Police documents: SW Wash. GOP lawmaker had sex with man
By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Republican state legislator from southwest Washington had sex with a man he met at an erotic video store and then told police he had been targeted in an extortion attempt, according to police documents released Tuesday.

State Rep. Richard Curtis, R-La Center, who on Monday declared, "I have not had sex with a guy," told police he was the victim in an extortion attempt by Cody Castagna at the posh Davenport Tower hotel on Oct. 26, search warrant documents said.

Castagna, 26, of nearby Medical Lake, told police that Curtis, 48, agreed to pay him $1,000 for sex, then reneged on the promise. Police reports also said witnesses told them Curtis dressed in women's lingerie at the erotic store, and records showed Curtis purchased two gay pornographic films from the hotel to watch with Castagna.

Numerous efforts to reach Curtis or his lawyer, John Wolfe, by phone on Tuesday were not successful.

Curtis is married and has children, according to his legislative Web site. Elected to the state House of Representatives in 2004, he has voted against gay rights legislation.
Curtis was among state GOP lawmakers who were in Spokane last Wednesday through Friday for a retreat to discuss the upcoming legislative session.

He went to the Hollywood Erotic Boutique in Spokane early on Oct. 26 and met Castagna, who accompanied him to the hotel, the police documents said.

The two arrived at the hotel around 3:34 a.m. and had sex, after which Curtis fell asleep, according to the documents.

Curtis alleged that Castagna took his wallet and later offered to return it for $1,000. Curtis said he only had $200 and left an envelope with the money at the hotel desk, the documents said.

Castagna called Curtis and demanded an additional $800, and threatened to expose Curtis, according to police reports. But Curtis had already contacted Spokane police, who listened to the call and then met with Castagna.

There have been no arrests in the case and no charges filed.

Castagna, who appeared Tuesday at a Spokane news conference with his lawyer, David Partovi, said the lawmaker "has completely changed what actually happened and turned it around for his favor."

The young man told police and reporters that Curtis gave him his wallet to hold as collateral "for the money that he promised me." Partovi refused to let his client tell reporters what he did for the money, noting Castagna had already spoken voluntarily with police.

"Cody Castagna admitted threatening to publicly expose Richard Curtis' gay lifestyle to his wife unless Richard Curtis provided the disputed money," the police documents said.

Partovi refused to let Castagna respond to a question about whether he threatened to "out" Curtis.

The lawyer noted extortion "is a violent Class B felony" and declared that his client "didn't do anything wrong, at that level anyway."

Police spokeswoman Jennifer DeRuwe said the evidence collected by police was given to the Spokane County prosecutor's office, which will decide if criminal charges are warranted. The deputy prosecutor who will review the report was not in the office Tuesday afternoon and will receive the information Wednesday, said a prosecutor's receptionist.

In his only public comments, Curtis told The Columbian newspaper of Vancouver, Wash., that he did not solicit anyone for sex.

"I committed no crime," Curtis told the newspaper Monday. "I did not solicit sex. I was trying to help somebody out."

Curtis, a former firefighter, declared, "I am not gay."

In his initial statement to police, Curtis denied offering money for sex, and denied having sex at all. He told officers he believed he had been slipped "some type of drug" because he did not have a clear recollection of events.

The police report added that Curtis told officers he only wanted his wallet back "and wanted to keep the incident as low key as possible." He did not want to pursue charges against Castagna, the report said.

But as the investigation continued, police said Curtis admitted to having sex with Castagna in Curtis' hotel room.

According to the report, Curtis said he initially gave Castagna $100 as gas money, and said he did not consider that paying for sex.

Police interviewed several witnesses at the Hollywood Erotic Boutique, and according to the report, Curtis walked into a bathroom at the store early on the morning of Oct. 26 and a few minutes later left the bathroom wearing long red women's stockings and a black sequined lingerie top. A witness told police that shortly after that he saw a man with a cane performing a sexual act on Curtis in an upstairs room.

Police also interviewed Jalene Henneman, a Hollywood Exotic Boutique employee, who told them Curtis had been in the store three separate times in the past month, and called him "the cross dresser." Henneman said Curtis told her his wife knew he was gay, but that he only pursued sex with men when he was out of town, according to the report.

The police report said Curtis told the investigating detective by phone on the morning of Oct. 27 that he was in Cle Elum because he had wrecked his car on the drive home. Curtis also told the detective he "would have to tell his wife the truth and he would have to get a divorce attorney."

In 2005 and 2006, Curtis voted against a bill that granted civil rights protections to gays and lesbians.

In 2007, Curtis voted against a bill that created domestic partnerships for same-sex couples.

Both measures eventually passed the Democratic-controlled state Legislature and are now part of state law.

State Republican leaders have declined comment on the case.

It's always funny though.
I mean why take the risk of going out to a sex shop or boutique whatever.
Why not call a nice man over to your home or apartment while the wife is out.

You're just asking for trouble traipsing around in red lingerie and stockings. Renting gay pornos 2 at a time.

I wonder how many stories about McGreevy described him as "Democrat Governor McGreevy"?

Just sayin.

Yes, I get the hypocrisy thing with voting against gay rights, but it's obviously word play at its worst.

None, they just really hammered it home that he was a married guy for the most part if I remember correctly. I don't think they really waved party affiliation around like they do in the media with Republicans.

But I mean really, are there really Republicans in Washington state? It's a fucking oddball state anyway with lefties and creeps.

he has voted against gay rights legislation.

This was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the thread title.

Hell, who knows, the more frequent this detail becomes in these stories, the better chance gay rights legislation may have of passing. Eventually people will begin to assume that if a politician is voting against it, they must be a closet-case. Therefore, to keep up their secrets, they may start voting in favor.

Just a thought.

The Democrats are seen more pro-gay. I don't know about McGreevy's "standards" or his voting records but the Republicans have made a career of making homosexuals seem like a sub-species. It's kind of like when they caught Lindsay Lohan drunk how everyone focused on her AA chip.

True, but in all honesty, how often do you hear the party affiliation of a Governor used anyhow. Normally it's Governor So-and-so. However, with legislative people whether state or federal, the party affiliation is ALWAYS used. No matter what the story.


Another bit of food for thought, stories like this (when republicans are involved) usually have the person on record for voting against every gay rights law brought before them. I'm sure Dems and Repubs have an equal number of closet cases in their ranks, but the ones on the Democrat side of the room aren't making gay rights a 'family values' issue.

It's not just with gay stories. The media does that pretty much all the time no matter what the issue is. If it's an ethical violation, a criminal violation, even a story like this one, the media will almost ALWAYS mention if it's a Republican, but is often curiously silent as to the party affiliation if it's a Democrat.

We've played "guess the race" here? A lot of conservative blogs play "guess the party", with stories where some politician has done something inappropriate. If the person's party affiliation isn't mentioned in the text of the news article, there's a 99% probability that the person's a Democrat.

As someone who lives in Seattle and grew up on the east side of the state I gotta tell you that Washington is really like two state in one. We have the Cascade mountains that cut the western third of the state. Everything west of the Cascades is lefty wacko. Everything east of the Cascades is right wing religious conservative. You never know it from the news because, despite the fact that west side has only a third of the land mass, the west side has almost twice the population as the east side.

I grew up in the Tri-Cities in the southeast corner of Washington. I thought, growing up, that I was a lefty until I moved to Seattle. Found out real quick that not only was I a moderate, I actually leaned conservative.

It's a strange state. Urban on the coast, rural farmland in the east. The east has one of the biggest Mormon populations in the country while the west has one of the biggest anti-religion movements. The west is filled with rain, green and trees. The east is a desert complete with tumbleweeds. We have one of the biggest anti-war efforts on the coast here, but we have like five military bases in this state and developed the fuel for Fat Man and Little Boy at the Hanford Reservation, just outside of the Tri-Cities.

Like I said, strange state. But even more strange, we seem to have an even number of kid touchers on both sides of the mountains. Giving the youngin's a little tickle seems to be universal.

The way the story reads, it wouldn't matter if he were a Democrat
"A Democratic state legislator..."
"State Rep. Richard Curtis, D-La Center"

So where's the problem? Other than the obvious - his alleged solicitation of gay sex?

At least your linked article mentioned his affiliation in the 2nd paragraph. Not right beside his name, like is normally done, but almost close enough.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_J._Jefferson

I guess he'll have to be convicted and sentenced to life in prison before they'll actually kick him out of Congress. Meanwhile some closet fag on the other side of the aisle is being shown the door for a misdemeanor that will likely end up as a fine. Of course we'll have to go looking for the information when it does happen. Apparently a Democrat with 16 counts of money laundering, etc. aren't as interesting as a Republican trying to find a glory hole.

Nice. :icon_roll

We're fucking doomed.

It's pretty much engrained in republican DNA to instantly go "look what the other guy is doing" whenever one of them fucks up.

How infantile and asinine. You will never hear them go "ok, he or she fucked up, next..." It's always someone else's fault, or someone always is conveniently guilty of the same thing, as if that negates the fact that one of them is just as guilty.

"Look mommy, it's not my fault, the media made me suck a cock."

Losers.

I see the point you are making, and yes, only the most naive person would think that this was not done, at least indirectly, to rub it in the face (waka-waka) of the Republican party that so often stands against gay rights.

But whenever a political figure is in the media for whatever reason, good or bad, at some point you have to mention the party they belong to. And like you said in a later post it was not even mentioned until deep in the story anyway.

I think you said it best when you talked about the hypocrisy regarding his actions. To me, it is meaningless what party he belongs to or that he is gay*, the fact that he voted against gay rights and is gay himself is what makes this a story.


*He should not have cheated on his family, however. I understand we are human and thus prone to mistakes and bad judgement from time to time but it is really not cool to be this careless if you are a public figure.

Exactly.

It's the hypocrisy. The GOP is notorious for being anti gay almost across the board. So when one of these guys who it's been known especially that have taken a stance against gays, and they suck cock..


wait for it... wait for it.... It's news.
