Former Democrat Congressman Gerry Studds Dies

Unlike Mark Foley, Studds actually had sex with male pages.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former U.S. Rep. Gerry Studds, a Massachusetts Democrat who was censured in 1983 for having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old congressional intern, died on Saturday at Boston Medical Center, an official said.

Christian Kiriakos, the hospital’s central administrator, said Studds, 69, died Saturday morning but did not provide details on the cause of his death.

Studds was the first member of Congress to acknowledge he was gay. When he was censured by the U.S. House of Representatives in 1983 for his relationship with the male page, Studds stood defiantly on the floor with his back turned to his fellow lawmakers as the charges against him were read.

Studds was re-elected and went on to serve a total of 12 terms. He did not seek re-election in 1996.

How many male pages did Studds victimize before he retired in 1996? No one in the MSM seems to care to find out, yet they’re now seizing upon Congressman Jim Kolbe’s 1996 camping trip. Hat tip: Ian at Hot Air.
