Gay Mayor Lied About Relation With Teen

From a highly sympathetic Associated Press:

Gay Mayor’s Teen Sex Affair to Be Investigated

Oregon will investigate claims made by the mayor of Portland that he lied to cover up a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old boy.

Thursday, January 22, 2009

PORTLAND, Oregon– The state’s attorney general agreed Wednesday to investigate claims made by the mayor of Portland that he lied to cover up a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old boy.

Portland Mayor Sam Adams admitted this week that he lied to cover up his relationship with a teenage legislative intern because a potential mayoral candidate had spread rumors that Adams had sex with a minor.

Adams, who is 45, said the teen was 17 when they met in 2005, and that the relationship did not turn sexual until the boy turned 18. He said he lied because he was afraid voters wouldn’t believe that his young lover had turned 18 before they started having sex.

Adams, a Democrat, became mayor on New Year’s Day, making Portland the largest U.S. city with an openly gay mayor.

Oregon Attorney General John Kroger agreed to an investigation after Multnomah County District Attorney Michael Schrunk and Portland police Chief Rosie Sizer asked Kroger to look into the affair.

Also on Wednesday, three Portland newspapers and the city police union called for Adams to resign.

Adams had said he would resign if staying was not in the city’s best interest

Unless Adams bows to pressure and resigns or there is evidence of a crime, he will remain in office for the first half of 2009 because state law bars any mayoral recall until after six months.

Of course we believe that Mr. Adams waited to have sex until the boy turned 18.

Democrats are such sticklers for abiding by the letter of the law.

And of course he won’t resign.

But what was Mark Foley’s crime again?

    They mentioned his party affiliation. [Joe Biden]I am going to say that again.[/Joe Biden] They mentioned his party affiliation.

    After posting the story, the AP must have went over to their Obamassiah oil painting and done several Hail Barry’s.

    • Confucius says:

      The article didn’t have to identify Adam’s party affiliation. Whenever a politician gets caught committing a crime and refuses to resign because it’s “in the best interest of the people,” you know they’re a Democrat.

      A Republican would had folded long ago.

    Restraint……the Democratic way.

    “I’m a pervert, but I’m a pervert who scupulously sticks to the letter of the law. Except for perjury, or when it’s not conventient, and a few other reasons”

  3. freeleep says:

    Whats the deal with Dem’s and interns? Where is the liberal outrage about sexual harassment and power imbalances in a relationship. I thought that if someone had a relationship with a subordinate it could not be consensual. So isnt hizzoner a rapist as well a a lying scumbag?

  4. Trialdog says:

    The thought of this predator’s scheme to seduce the boy makes me ill. “Hi little boy, when do you turn eighteen?” Exactly how and in what context would a grown man seek to learn about, or ask, the age of the boy? “Are you eighteen yet? Because I’d really like to —— your young —–.” Well, having lived in Portland, I’m sure they all figure it quite normal. It’s ok, he didn’t physically exploit the boy until the kid turned eighteen. As he lined up the minor for his future conquest, I’m sure he felt nothing but love for the boy. A love obviously reciprocated by a well informed and mentally healthy man child. How beautiful. I am shocked that a dirty malicious Republican would try to destroy the memory of their love. What a disgusting example of dirty trick campaigning. How low can those mean spirited Republicans go in their quest to foment hatred?

    Quote: “Adams had said he would resign if staying was not in the city’s best interest…”


  6. polemos says:

    Ok this guy is the Mayor of Portland a wee 45 min drive from me. He is a jerk, was a jerk before he ran for mayor. Would NOT be mayor if he was honest about his little trist with an intern when asked.

    Portland politics is a joke in Oregon and it appears it will stay that way.

  7. Congratulations.

    You found the one story which named this guy’s political affiliation. I was playing ‘name that party’ over at my place.

  8. Liberals Demise says:

    Uncle Barneys’ Frank just got a twitch and shiver……..
    ….do I see these two doing a “Fannie Mae” or a “Freddie Mac” soon?

  9. cjokry says:

    Here’s a thought challenge: pretend it’s a 45 year old Republican mayor and an 18 year old girl, and try to imagine the tone and volume of the story staying that even and matter-of-fact.

    Nothing but the bare facts and some quotes are reported here, and quite un-emotively, even though many are calling for this man’s resignation. They act like it’s no biggie, these things happen. We shouldn’t be upset. They’d never report on the matter in this way if the story were as I describe it above.

    • caligirl9 says:

      A 45-year old pervert Republican mayor and an innocent 18-year old girl?


      A 45-year old fine upstanding gay Democrat mayor who waited for his 17-year old object of desire to become of legal age?

      A model citizen!

      Signed, NAMBLA

  10. Dangerous says:

    First, I have to say I was surprised to see the party affiliation mentioned.

    I don’t suppose there’s any way a private citizen can call for a criminal investigation of the possible (or probable, I’d say) occurrence of statutory rape?

    I mean, with the help of the media he’ll probably avoid being tried in the court of public opinion, so is there any way to get him into the court of law?

    • Liberals Demise says:

      You mean like for JAYWALKING?

    • DW says:

      I suspect you would have to have some sort of solid evidence of the crime -such as a videotape.
      As far simply being a private citizen who wants something investigated -best call Magnum PI.

  11. Gila Monster says:

    Homosexuality aside, hizzoner doesn’t have a problem with having relations with an 17 18 year old intern that works for him..?? Not a single twitch on the ethics meter there Sammy?

    Adams must have graduated summa cum laude from “The Bubba Clinton School of Gubbermint Service”. Hell, he was probably the valedictorian of his class!!

  12. caligirl9 says:


    T-shirt available in Portland that says “Portland, Oregon: Where You Only Have to Be 18 To Enjoy A Sam Adams.”

  13. DANEgerus says:

    Too bad he isn’t a Priest so everyone could share in the outrage.

    But as Sam is an out-of-the closet Gay man, even though his lies were to smear a Gay opponent for Mayor, he is a “victim”.

  14. Colonel1961 says:

    Didn’t they run off some Republican for having a ‘wide stance’? How much more duplicitous can they expect to be. Oh, that’s right – they can be as duplicitous as they want, as long as morons continue to elect them into office…

  15. GuppyNblue says:

    Mayor Adams is a self-indulgent pervert (probably child molester) who couldn’t control his decadent sexual appetites. But just the fact that he was screwing his 18 year old intern should be enough to force him out of office. Seriously, how do you trust a politician with so little self-control and who has already lied to the public?
    Hmm? I’m getting one of those déjà vu thingies. Does Mayor Adams smoke?
