BuzzFlash's GOP Hypocrite Of The Week

Hey, it's Friday, which means it's time to check out BuzzFlash's "GOP Hypocrite Of The Week." As always, it's a grueling process to narrow the selection to just one Republican hypocrite, and this week BuzzFlash went with a "small fry Republican sex pervert hypocrite" in the form of North Carolina Republican Coy C. Privette. Mr. Privette was, until recently, the head of the Christian Action League of North Carolina and -- you guessed it! -- has also been shagging prostitutes.

An excerpt:
In the spirit of Senator "Hooker" Vitter, Privette recently was arrested and "charged with six counts of misdemeanor aiding and abetting prostitution by renting a hotel room and paying for sexual acts, according to warrants."

Now we must admit that Southern chivalry is not dead. Privette paid for the "lodging expenses," we'll grant him that.

But we took note that "Privette had been the group's [Christian Action League of North Carolina] president for the past six years and served as its executive director for 15 years before that."

You can assume that he was running around championing the sanctity of marriage and all sorts of "family values," just like Senator "Hooker" Vitter. And did we mention Privette is a Baptist minister and once ran for the Republican nomination for governor of North Carolina?
You can read the rest at and see a historical list of BuzzFlash's other worthy selections.
