Thumbs down: Civil servants gone wild
The closet became too claustrophobic for yet another lawmaker. Former Indiana State Rep. Brian Hasler, D-Evansville, who thought he had landed a $160 deal for sex with a male prostitute, actually had landed a date with Sgt. Jon Daggy of IMPD's vice unit. Instead of escorting Hasler upstairs to a hotel room at the Omni last week, Daggy escorted him to jail. Too bad fear of honesty about sex too often fuels desperate behavior and public shaming. Too bad that wild sex is so often driven underground where, instead of releasing tension within a safe and healthy setting, it becomes a vehicle for victimization.
