Today’s sex scandal comes from North Carolina.

Will it involve a GOP politician?  Or a Christian activist?

How about …both??

Cabarrus County Commissioner Coy Privette was charged this morning with six counts of aiding and abetting prostitution. He was released from the Rowan County Jail on a written promise to appear, police said.

Privette, a former N.C. State Representative and retired Baptist minister, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Privette, it turns out, was once director of the Christian Action League of North Carolina for 15 years, and is a crusader for the removal of all things alcoholic from North Carolina.

But he loooooves the ladies (of the evening).

The allegations involve alleged meetings at Rowan County hotel rooms with the same prostitute, dating back several months. Privette on two occasions allegedly paid the prostitute with checks then reported those checks as stolen, officials said.
