Worse than drinking? Hiring a male hooker.

Paul Rolly’s column in the Sunday’s Salt Lake Tribune admirably conjured up the witch hunt some are said to be conducting up at the Capitol into lobbyists’ drinking habits following the downfall of metal band lover and former State Senate majority leader Sheldon Killpack.---

One comment by Rolly caught my eye. Legislative leaders viewed the only sin worse than drinking as hiring a prostitute, Rolly noted.

I had a conversation several days after Killpack’s bust with a Republican source who remarked on how deep the dismay was among the Republican LDS leadership. He said, “The only thing Sheldon could have done worse than a DUI was getting caught in bed with a male prostitute.” He stressed the gender. Which makes you wonder if Killpack had been found twixt the sheets with a lady of the night would he still be our senate’s leader?

LDS Church member Killpack’s acknowledgement of his penchant for social tippling left one friend of mine also wondering if along with bars’ mandatory carding of folks who look under 35, perhaps those who are clean shaven in suits should also be asked for their LDS Church temple recommend. Tit for tat as it were.
