Indiana Rep. Jud McMillin Resigns After An Ugly Porn Texting Scandal

Another day, another raunchy scandal involving a supposedly respectable and family-oriented politician, and yet another eye-rolling response. This time it’s Indiana Rep. Jud McMillin issuing cookie-cutter statements to his constituents and followers, blaming mysterious bad guys for the reason that everyone is laughing at him. The Indianapolis Star reports that McMillin’s cellphone recently sent a text to his contacts, and the message was nothing more than a very graphic porn video. McMillin eventually followed up with another text to his contacts explaining that his phone was stolen while he was in Canada, and whoever took it from him was the culprit behind the offensive material. Unfortunately for McMillin, the damage was done and he was forced to resign in disgrace… sorry, I mean “pass the torch” and spend more time with his family.

If McMillin was nothing more than a squeaky clean rising star, this probably wouldn’t be a big deal. After all, every politician should get one shot at redemption after his first stupid, perverted mistake. But McMillin made himself a target for his more extreme critics when he co-sponsored the state’s insanely controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was really nothing compared to the times that he advocated for hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants for companies he was personally involved with or the time that he resigned as an assistant county prosecutor in Ohio because he was dating “the complainant in a domestic-violence case he was prosecuting.” That’s putting it nicely, by the way, because holy sh*t this sounds like every Lifetime movie ever made.

But as he told his followers, McMillin is using this latest controversy as a chance to make his family stronger, and there’s nothing more important than that. Except maybe learning how to lock your cellphone and/or not keep porn videos on it.
