TALLAHASSEE -- State Rep. Mike Horner, a Republican from Kissimmee, abruptly resigned his seat in the Florida House on Monday following reports that he was a client at a Central Florida brothel.

Horner, 44, was a solid favorite to win a third term in District 42 in Osceola and Polk counties. His name surfaced during the investigation of alleged brothel owner, Mark David Risner, 54, who faces racketeering and prostitution charges and is accused of running a prostitution ring out of his Orange County home. Investigators found hundreds of names as they investigated Risner’s operation, and Horner shut down his campaign website shortly after his name was publicized.

Republican and Democratic political sources have told the Miami Herald that the prostitution ring included prostitutes catering to gay clients.

I didnt know it was a GAY brothel. LOL! Thanks for the skinfo!

Wondering if the prostitutes catering to gay clients were men, or may be women helping gays search for their real sexuality?
Just asking.

What? Real sexuality for gays? Lolololol

Yes, cane68, I'm sure the gay clientele are searching here, searching there, searching, searching everywhere for their misplaced "real sexuality."

Somehow I doubt, though, that they're looking in women's vaginas to see if it's in there.
