Conservative Washington State Rep. Richard Curtis, who had voted against a domestic partnership bill and a bill that would have outlawed discrimination based on sexual orientation, was accused of soliciting sex from another man in 2007. After the news broke, Curtis resigned from his seat and was quoted as saying, “This has been damaging to my family, and I don't want to subject them to any additional pain that might result from carrying out this matter under the scrutiny that comes with holding public office.” He claimed he wasn't gay and accused the man, a paid escort, of extortion, but later told prosecutors he wanted the changes dropped.
