Emails obtained by the Indianapolis Star reveal that Indiana State Rep. Phillip Hinkle arranged a tryst with a young man after reading his ad in the “Casual Encounters” section of the online classifieds site.
The Star reports that Hinkle responded to an ad in the “m4m,” or men for men, section posted by 18-year-old Kameryn Gibson, who said he was 20 and looking for a “sugga daddy.” The lawmaker arranged to meet him at an Indianapolis hotel and pay him up to $140 “for a really good time.”
According to the Gibson siblings, Hinkle offered them $100, his iPad and his BlackBerry if they promised not to go to the police or the media. Hinkle’s family, they said, also offered to pay them $10,000 if they kept quiet.
