The gay male prostitute who serviced disgraced evangelist Ted Haggard has disclosed all manner of intimate details to a radio show host.

  • The tawdry bits aside, the interesting thing here is that the prostitute readily admits he timed his disclosure to help the cause of gay marriage on the Nov. 7 election ballots.

  • AMERICAblog:

    Interviewer: You felt that you had to do something before November 7th, if it was going to impact Amendment 43 and the elections.

    Michael Jones [Haggard’s escort]: And I don’t know if it’s going to change votes at all. I don’t know what the outcome will be, it coming out before the election but I Had to point out the hypocrisy, that here is a gentleman enjoying all the benefits of marriage, all the rights and doesn’t want two other people of the same sex who love each other to have those same rights and yet he can cheat on his wife.
