Anti-gay Puerto Rican senator accused of posting naked pics on gay social app

A Puerto Rico senator has become the latest politician placed into controversy after allegedly posting sexual photos of himself online.

Senator Robert Arango, who was the Vice Chairman of George W.Bush and Dick Cheney’s Puerto Rico re-election committee in 2004, has been supposedly identified by the Puerto Rican TV show Dando Candela for placing naked pictures of himself on the popular gay social network application Grindr.

When asked about the pictures, Arango reportedly did not deny or confirm that it was him. The Latin news site Gunabee reportsthat the senator told the Dando Candela show, “You know I’ve been losing weight. As I shed that weight, I’ve been taking pictures. I don’t remember taking this particular picture but I’m not gonna say I didn’t take it. I’d tell you if I remembered taking the picture but I don’t.”

Arango’s alleged photos and possible posting on a same sex site may come as a surprise since the senator has been a vocal enemy against gay marriage and rights in San Juan. The site “JoemyGod” reported that he voted to ban gay marriage in 2009 (the bill failed), opposes civil unions, and used a duck to make fun of a campaign opponent in 2004 (labeling someone a duck is a homophobic slur used in Puerto Rico).

Arango is formerly married and has one daughter.
