Arango’s excuse for posting pics of himself on gay/bi hookup phone ap Grindr—including one of him bent over, cheeks spread, senatorial asshole winking at the camera—isn’t as catchy as “hiking the Appalachian Trail” or “lifting your luggage.” Those two were pure poetry. But Arango’s excuse is delightful in its own way: Arango wasn’t looking to hookup with dudes, he was just documenting his weight loss regimen. (“Why, Senator Arango! Your asshole is looking so slim these days! You simply must share your workout routine with me!”)
Puerto Rican Senator Roberto Arango is, of course, a Republican who opposes gay marriage, helped pass a ban on adoption rights for gay couples, and who intimated that his opponent was gay in a recent election.
