As it turns out, George Rekers, the anti-gay professor of behavior science, caught flouncing around Europe with a gay prostitute, made paid much more than $60,900 from the office of Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum. Rekers provided the “expert” testimony in McCollum’s courtroom defense of Florida’s prohibition against gay adoption. For that unconvincing expertise, he was paid a total of $120,693.
For its $120,693, the Attorney General’s office got testimony that Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Cindy Lederman found was “motivated by his strong ideological and theological convictions that are not consistent with the science. Based on his testimony and demeanor at trial, the court can not consider his testimony to be credible nor worthy of forming the basis of public policy.”
