Wisconsin Rep. Gordon Hintz Pulls A "Patches" Kennedy, Then Gets Busted At The "Heavenly Touch"

R. S. McCain posted this video of Wisconsin State Rep. Gordon Hintz, on the floor of the Wisconsin House, making the following "impassioned" floor speech.



Kinda reminded me of this guy:



Well, Rep. Hintz got himself into some trouble, after he was arrested for being a patron of the "Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor."
State Rep. Gordon Hintz, ticketed this month as part of an investigation into prostitution at an Appleton massage parlor, said Monday he would take responsibility for his actions.

"My concern right now is that my personal situation is distracting from the much more important issue facing our state," Hintz wrote in an e-mailed statement. "We have tens of thousands of working people at the Capitol every day, and that must remain our focus."

Hintz, a Democrat from Oshkosh, did not return phone messages left at his home and Capitol office.

Appleton police ticketed Hintz on Feb. 10 for touching/offering to touch sexual parts, according to online court records. Hintz posted $2,667.50 bail. His intake court date was set for April 27.

Appleton police have been cracking down on a massage parlor suspected of prostitution, the Appleton Post-Crescent has reported.
Shouldn't become a distraction? It seems like with Rep. Hintz, "affairs of state" distracted from "the affairs of state."
