Dem Representative Investigated For Having Sex at Rest Stop With 17 Year-Old Boy (Updated)

Democrat Kerry Gauthier is facing Republican challenger Travis Silvers in November.

Minnesota state Democrat Representative Kerry Gauthier is being investigated by police for reportedly having sex with a 17 year-old at a rest stop.
Northland News Center reported:

Minnesota district 7B Representative Kerry Gauthier is at the center of a criminal investigation by Duluth police. This is a particularly sensitive situation right now as incumbent lawmaker Gauthier will face Republican challenger Travis Silvers in November.

Police will only confirm that Representative Gauthier involved in an incident the Thompson Hill rest stop last month.

State Patrol will confirm that one witness approached a trooper around 11 at night on July 22nd to report an incident.

The State Patrol turned the investigation over to the Duluth Police Department. Police spokespeople say they are conducting a criminal investigation but they refuse to say why Gauthier was arrested.

However well placed sources today told the Northland’s NewsCenter, the incident involved a 17 year old boy with whom Gauthier was reportedly engaged in a sexual act.

UPDATE: Dem Representative won’t face charges. The sex with the teen was consensual.

    Will Holder consider Gauthier one of “his people” and intervene for the common good?

  • Grandma Perkins

    Oh dear!

  • onbe


    To answer that question One must first determine if Gauthier votes party line.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    This happened on July 22nd and we are just hearing about it now?

    If this were a Republican. . . well. . . he would have been gone by now and rightly so.

    The real criminal act of sodomy here is between the media and the Democrat Party.

  • Militant conservative

    Clear the field, just like Obama did.

  • mg4us

    Cut the DemocRAT some slack. . he was just doing a BJ Clinton with the boy in protest to that nasty Chick-fil-A! What is good for Monica is good for others. . .right? Spread the Luv!

    In the meantime, here is a good piece on Obama

    And like what they say about Ryan too:
    Paul Ryan represents everything that Obama and the Democrats will never be: intellectually fertile, economically and historically literate, unimpeachably rigorous and honest. And these are only Paul Ryan’s character virtues. His ideas and convictions are even better. And he’s the most likeable politician in town.

    Obama – – Out of Ideas, Out of Energy, Out of Touch and soon to be Out of Here!

    wow, just, wow.

    Is this because gay marriage hasn’t been legalized in MN?

  • cal rifkin

    It’s a wide stance?? It’s consensual sex?? It’s a dim?? No problem, a badge of honor for that party of pervs.

  • Mark Foley emailed young men and he was accused of being a pedophile 24/7 by the Make Believe Media. Won’t hold my breath waiting for the MBM to report this.

  • mackykam

    Did this take place at the rest stop named “The JIM MCGREEVY Rest and BJ Stop” in honor of New Jersey’s former governor?

    Just asking….

  • Finncrisp

    Another Sandusky on the loose, this time in Congress. If he was an R, the story would never go away. This one gone!

    I looked up the age of consent. It breaks down into a few things. There was no special law in Minnesota for homosexual contact besides being the legal age of consent which is 16. The only thing that I am puzzled about is the wording in their law, something about authority or possible authority figures being held to a higher standard. Either way, it kinda sounds like this liberal was within the boundaries of Minnesota and federal law. It’s sick, but the way Minnesota is being overtaken with the Sharia Law types, they will probably try to get the age of consent much lower as the Minnesota government is slowly taken over. If people voted strictly on moral grounds, the Dimocrat party wouldn’t exist.

  • BeckyLew

    According to Shariah law he would be put to death for homosexual acts. Just sayin!

    Wow, this is huge. Duluth is a major liberal bastion.

    He isn’t a Republican. I don’t see why anyone would care.

  • MrBuddwing

    Name that party! Maybe everyone in this district already knows Rep. Gauthier is a Democrat, but to an outsider like myself, all I see is a reference to his opponent being a Republican.

  • Patty


  • Next up is Barney Frank

  • paul52

    Agree with #12. If Gauthier was a Republican, this would be all over the news. Is Gauthier currently married??? To a woman? Just curious.

  • dunce

    Lower animals like dogs and farm animals can legally have sex in public, i do not know why democrats can not be provided the same exclusion.

  • BarbaraS

    Heaven forfend that this guy gets the same media coverage as the republican did not for doing something but suspected of wanting to do something similar but pilloried just the same. I await with bated breath.

  • Minnie’s not a moocher…michelle is

    I’m sure democrapic Gauthier doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong…he’s a democrap!

  • Chelie

    I think this activity is absolutely wrong, and agree that had this been a Republican it would be all over the media with the rep having been kicked out by now, but why have we been referring to 17-year-olds at “boys”? In this case and in the Trayvon Martin case, they were not boys, IMO.

  • Where’s the MF money Jon?

    “This is a particularly sensitive situation right now as incumbent lawmaker Gauthier will face Republican challenger Travis Silvers in November.”

    An election is more important than child rape. (Younger than age of consent.)

    It is Minnesota, perhaps the vote fraud capital of the United States, and this scum is a democrat. Nothing will happen.

  • Doug

    It’s OK – just a gay guy raping a boy.

    Nothing out of the ordinary here – rules do not apply to gays.

  • Where’s the MF money Jon?

    Previous commenter is incorrect about age of consent being 16. If victim between 16 and 18 and the perp is 48 months older, it is fourth degree criminal sexual assault.

    This is child rape.

  • Chicago Voter

    He’s a Democrat, no charges, move on, nothing to see here.

  • Guess this type of ANIMAL behavior is now more acceptable under leftists progessive society…..

    What with these alternative lifestyles and the bathroom? Ugh.

    Get a motel room.

    Here is another one….from todays issue of DailyMail (UK)……

    Democrat lawmaker ‘choked, wrestled and beat wife and then drove away drunk’

    A Pennsylvania state lawmaker faces assault and other charges after police say he punched and choked his wife, then drove away drunk.

    Democratic state Rep Joseph Brennan, 48, was arrested on Wednesday following a 911 call about a man hitting a woman outside their home in Fountain Hill, Lehigh County.

    Norma Jane Brennan told officers her husband had choked, punched and wrestled her to the ground.

    According to the police affidavit, Mrs Brennan had visible injuries to her left hand, knuckles, both feet and her left knee.
    Joseph Brennan was pulled over a few blocks away, where police say a breath test found he had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit for drivers.

    Brennan was arraigned and released on $7,500 bail.

    He was charged with assault, harassment and drunken driving and was told to have no contact with his wife while he is out on bail.

    The 48-year-old was arrested last year for a DUI and said afterwards he was experiencing a ‘long and personal struggle with alcohol’.

    According to The Morning Call, Brennan was arrested in June 2011 in Bethlehem and charged with drunken driving, careless driving and public drunkenness.

    He was four times over the limit at that time and avoided a criminal record by being accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program.

    A message left with his office early on Thursday wasn’t immediately returned.

    All anyone needs do is study recent history…..
    to know the GOP stands for “Gay Old Party”.

    Plenty old poofs there.

    Throw the pervert out – one less vote for ‘stretch’ Pelousy’s attempt to get her clammy hands on gavel again.

    Ya all know how Dimocrats are, they think perversion is a wonderful thing.

  • Glenn Koons, LB, Ca.

    Remember when a couple of Pubs, one House Rep, one Senator had homosexual sex? Boy howdy, the voters sure did and defeated the Pubs handily. Hmmm. Wonder if this will happen to the Dems? Wait, they already have Frank, other characters who have been charged with stuff just like this but the hypocritical media and DNC went to the Wall for the Dems. Seems the Left only wants Pub sins punished. HMMM.

    The honorable congressman’s public sodomy police report:

    (The cop) “asked why his zipper was down, and he said he didn’t know”.

    How many male Repub Politicians in the last few years have publicly stated they stand for “family values,” openly opposed gay relationships and then been caught with a penis in their mouths or reaching under the airport stalls for one. To me it is just as disgusting to talk out of one side of your mouth and open the other side to play “catcher.” Not a Dem or Repub thing, just a moral issue. Let people love who they will, but keep it out of public restrooms and of legal age, or you are subject to arrest, and your public career is over.
