Escort claims his masculine wiles made Ted quite haggard
A Denver-based male escort is claiming that he had a three-year "sexual business relationship" with Ted Haggard (pic), president of the National Association of Evangelicals, pastor of Colorado Spring's New Life Church, and possessor of the facial characteristic known as perma-grin. The escort, Mike Jones, says quite bluntly of Haggard:
"He had a relationship with me. We had gay sex."
For his part, Haggard is adamantly denying the charges, a reaction that thoroughly shocked everyone who thought an Evangelical leader would respond to such claims by just saying, "Oh yea, totally -- it was hot, too!"
Though it would be refreshing if that was the response, right? After all, if it's true, we're gonna eventually find out anyhow; so why not save constantly-smiling face?
But everyone's innocent until proven guilty, so we'll have to wait and see if it's Haggard or the escort who is lying. Our money's on the nightstand one of the two, but we won't say who.
*UPDATE: Jones claims he has voicemails and a letter from Haggard, and that he has witnessed the pastor doing meth!
**UPDATE2: New Life Church investigating the charges. Civic and religious leaders are expected to hold a press conference at 3 p.m. today"
