“Family values” Republican arrested for beating his wife.

Jason Priest is a State Senator in Montana who loves families.  Loves, loves, loves them.  In fact, he loves them so much that he has fought like a mad man to keep gay people from forming them with their choice, rather than Priest’s choice, of spouse.  It’s all about family values for Priest, because that’s what makes for great, stable families – the kind where children can grow up in a nurturing environment full of love.

You can guess where this is going.

State Sen. Jason Priest of Red Lodge was in jail Sunday after being arrested on suspicion of partner or family assault and resisting arrest.

The Yellowstone County Detention Facility’s website listed the 45-year-old Republican lawmaker as having been booked into jail on Saturday. His bond was set at $335. A dispatcher at the jail said he was still in custody Sunday afternoon.

Phew, that was close.  Imagine if he’d been caught giving pleasure to another man!
