Anti-Gay Republican Outed As A Drag Queen Named ‘Miss Mona Sinclair’ (IMAGE)

We always say that the biggest homophobes are usually the most likely to be closet homosexuals. Often, that turns out to be true, and comes out in a hilariously embarrassing way (hilarious for us, embarrassing for the outed homophobe). This time, though, the homophobe reached a whole other level.

Meet 34-year-old Steve Wiles, GOP candidate for the North Carolina Senate. He supports Amendment 1, North Carolina’s ban on same-sex marriage. However, there is another side to Mr. Wiles. According Randy Duggins, former owner of the gay bar Club Odyssey, Wiles was a frequent patron of the club in the 1990’s. Further, circa 2001-2002, Wiles began working for the club as the performance booker and show director for drag shows. Wiles emceed the drag shows as a female impersonator named Miss Mona Sinclair, The Raw Story reports. Duggins says, speaking of Wiles to the Winston-Salem Journal:

“He’s Mona Sinclair.”

Wiles, while blundering around to attempt to both deny and justify his past, originally said:

“That’s not me.”

Later, however, Wiles admitted to his former career as a Club Odyssey drag queen while speaking to Business Insider:

“I think that everyone has their own choices to make and I’m fine with everyone making their own. For me, from a religious standpoint, just for my life, for me, it just was not something that I wanted to continue. Of course it was an embarrassment, but you know, you move on. You live life, and you change, and you make yourself what you want yourself to be. And that’s where I am now.”

Here’s the image:

Well, at least he finally admitted it. The thing is, though, he had to know that his past would eventually catch up to him. There are bunches of photos and videos being taken at drag shows. It isn’t exactly the sort of thing one can do in secret. Further, if someone does something like that, then comes out for legislation that hurts the community he was once a part of, he has to expect the whistle to get blown. That is just the way it is, Mr. Wiles, and, in my opinion, you are getting just what you deserve. You are a hypocrite of the highest order, and your time for getting your comeuppance is now.

As for the million dollar question, that is, whether or not Steve Wile is gay? Of course Wiles neither confirms nor denies that, lest something about his sexual past comes out, most likely. He says, in response to the question:

“No, no, I really wont make any comments on that.”

That’s okay, Mr. Wiles – or would you prefer I call you Miss Sinclair? You don’t have to comment on it. Your silence on the matter speaks volumes.  Chances are, you are gay, and it is only a matter of time before the proof of that comes out.

When speaking on his opposition to same- sex marriage, Wiles expresses the same ignorant sentiments that many anti-gay GOPers do:

“I don’t really understand how you can separate the fact that marriage is a religious institution.” 

It isn’t a religious institution, you dunce. It is a contract between the state and two people who wish to bind themselves legally to one another. That has nothing to do with religion. If it were religious, the only place you could get married would be in a church. That is not the case. In fact, the church ceremony doesn’t mean jack in the eyes of the law.

Wiles is currently in the middle of a three way GOP primary in a very conservative NC district. Likely, the fact that he is a drag queen means that he doesn’t have a chance in  hell of winning.
