SPOKANE, Wash. -- Search warrant documents obtained by KXLY-TV provide more details about a gay sex extortion attempt involving state Representative Richard Curtis of La Center, in southwest Washington.
He was in Spokane last week for a Republican Party meeting and staying at the Davenport Tower hotel.
The documents say he met a man at an erotic video store and had sex at the hotel. The man reportedly demanded $1,000 and Curtis called police. No one has been arrested and the Spokane prosecutor will decide whether to file a charge.
In his only public comments about the incident, Curtis told The Columbian newspaper that he did not solicit anyone for sex and is not gay.
