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!

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

    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.

    Clear the field, just like Obama did.

    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!

    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.

    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….

    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.

    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.

    Next up is Barney Frank
