A Republican mayor from New Jersey has resigned after he followed in the footsteps of George Rekers and contracted with someone from rentboy.com — I’m sure it was just to carry his luggage, though.
The mayor of Medford, NJ resigned a month after he was accused of soliciting sex with a man from the gay escort site Rentboy.com.
In a letter to Medford town manager and clerk on Monday, Chris Myers said that “my work commitments will not allow me to devote the time that is needed in the months ahead. That is why, today, I am resigning from the Medford Township Council, effective immediately.” …
In October, an anonymous California man accused Myers of agreeing to pay him for sex through the escort site Rentboy.com. The man said that Myers also promised him a car and a recording studio, but then reneged on his promises. In response, the man set up a website detailing their encounter, and included compromising pictures of Myers in blue Calvin Klein underwear (you can see a screenshot here).
Those “work commitments”? He’s actually on administrative leave from his real job.
