SPOKANE, Wash. – A Republican state legislator from southwest Washington had sex with a man he met at an erotic video store and then told police he had been targeted in an extortion attempt, according to police documents released Tuesday.
State Rep. Richard Curtis, R-La Center, who on Monday declared, “I have not had sex with a guy,” told police he was the victim in an extortion attempt by Cody Castagna at the posh Davenport Tower hotel on Oct. 26, search warrant documents said.
In his only public comments, Curtis told The Columbian newspaper of Vancouver, Wash., that he did not solicit anyone for sex and was not gay.
“I committed no crime,” Curtis told the newspaper Monday. “I did not solicit sex. I was trying to help somebody out.”
Curtis, a former firefighter, declared, “I am not gay.”
The sordid details of the police report:
Richard had walked into the bathroom and was there for several minutes.Â The male in the Home Depot jacket told ______ â€œHe always takes a long time because heâ€™s putting on lingerie.â€Â A few minutes later _____ saw Richard exit the bathroom wearing long red womenâ€™s stockings and a black sequined lingerie top.Â Richard went up to the second viewing room, which is upstairs in the boutique.Â _____ walked upstairs, walked past the second room and saw a 40-ish year old white male with a cane performing oral sex on Richard.
Richard asked _____ what was up.Â _____ told Richard he had lost $40 at playing cards earlier that evening.Â _____ said he used his last $10 to get into the boutique to view the porno movies.
Richard told _____ that he would give _____ some money and help him out.
Richard directed _____ to meet him at the Davenport Towers Hotel.
_____ asked Richard what he did and Richard told him, â€œI work to help people out.â€Â Richard also told _____, â€œIf I told you, Iâ€™d have to kill you.â€
Richard said his wife knew that he liked being with guys when they got married, but she was not into that, so he only did that when he was out of town.
Richard got out a tube of lubricant and _____ was now naked and began masturbating on the bed.Â Richard told _____ that he liked to be submissive and role play because he has a job where heâ€™s always in charge.Â Richard told _____ that _____ was in control.Â _____ stated he got a flavored condom which Richard had on the nightstand next to the bed.Â _____ put the condom on and performed anal sex on Richard.
Iâ€™ll stop here, but thereâ€™s much more if you want to read it.
It ends up as a he said/he said case of did Richards pay for sex with the guy or did the guy try to extort money from Richard?Â Weâ€™ll have to wait and see on that.
But based on the police report and the hotel videotapes that confirm Richard was with a guy in the hotel, I think we can assume Richard enjoys gay sex.
But he says heâ€™s not gay.Â Heâ€™s just a guy that likes to dress up in lingerie, go to porn theaters for blow jobs from men, pick up men and take them to his hotel room for anal sex.
Gay?Â Whoâ€™s gay?Â Certainly not this Republican member of the Washington State House of Representatives.
