McCain Takes Donation from Owner of a Gay Sex Website

16 08 2008

As I was surfing through the interwebs this evening, I came across this juicy little story on Towleroad. Apparently, one of the founders of “ManHunt”, a website that caters to gays looking for a “hook up” is a McCain supporter.  Jonathan Crutchley gave the maximum individual contribution ($2300) to McCain’s campaign. Given that McCain is anti-anything-gay it’s no shock that he returned the donation once they learned who the donor was.  But surely Crutchley realized McCain’s views, unless, perhaps, he has been too busy spending the 2.5 million dollars his website makes per month to study up on politics. (who knew there was that much money to be made from such a site??)

When i read this over at HuffPo, i laughed tears.
i wonder if it was a joke, his donating money to a consertive-ish politician. Like to see what’d happen.

Poor McCain probably had no idea before someone let him know. He probably thought is was a group of dudes shooting bears and Bambies in the woods and what not. Like “men hunting”. Only it is men hunting, just not the game he thought.

i visited Manhunt. It seems pretty sexy. In a gay-man-hooking-up-for-some-convenient-hot-relations kind of way.

A lot of people have been canceling memberships and deleting profiles on Hatehunt.net. The company never told its subscribers that a portion of the proceeds would go to promote discrimination and violence against lgbt people.

C–I was a little taken aback myself.

Lib–thanks for dropping by! I read that this guy is off the board now…but is he still an owner?

I heard about this a bit earlier…didn’t the donor actually lose his job as a result of the donation?

What an odd world we live in, huh?

Rev–he did step down from the board. (I’d have never thought that there WAS a board to a site such as that). I wouldn’t enter politics for love nor money.
