Republican leader pleads guilty to oral sex on drunk, sleeping younger man

”When I first got the case, I thought it was important that he plead guilty. That he admit it, that he could get a felony, that he serve time in prison. So, we’ll be getting all three of those — and register as a sex offender, which, I believe is for life.”

Stanley Levco, Special Prosecuting Attorney speaking on camera to reporters after 34-year-old Glenn Murphy, Jr., the former head of Indiana’s Clark County Republican Party, pleaded guilty to performing oral sex on a sleeping, drunk 22-year-old male whom he had shared a bunk bed with after a party. Murphy is said to have advised fellow Republicans on using wedge issues like same-sex marriage against Democrats; and also to have possibly committed similar involuntary acts on other men. (WLKY) (
