Anti-Gay Marriage GOP Candidate Explains His Past As A Drag Queen

Republican North Carolina State Senate candidate Steve Wiles used to go by a different name — "Miss Mona Sinclair."
Wiles' past life as a drag queen and promoter for the "Miss Gay America" pageant was detailed in a report published by the Winston-Salem Journal Saturday. Business Insider spoke to Wiles, who supports a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in North Carolina, and he explained why he doesn't consider himself "anti gay" and why he no longer dresses in drag.

"I think that everyone has their own choices to make and I'm fine with everyone making their own. For me, from a religious standpoint, just for my life, for me, it just was not something that I wanted to continue," Wiles said of his drag performances. "Of course it was an embarrassment, but you know, you move on. You live life, and you change, and you make yourself what you want yourself to be. And that's where I am now."
Wiles declined to answer when Business Insider asked whether he considers himself an "ex-gay."

"No, no, I really wont make any comments on that," he said.

Wiles also said he believes the Winston-Salem Journal report was an attack from his opponents whom he described as "looking to take the focus off of their failures," A few hours after the story was published, Wiles published a note on his Facebook page wherein he apologized for having had an "embarrassing" job. In spite of his regrets, with the election days away, Wiles told Business Insider he has no intention of stopping his campaign.

"I mean, there's only three more days," said Wiles with a laugh.

3 San Jose State Students Expelled Over Bullying of Black Roommate

San Jose State University administrators have expelled three of the four students accused of bullying their black roommate, Judge LaDoris Cordell said.

The Mercury News reports the students expelled by the university are Logan Beaschler, Colin Warren and a juvenile. The university found that they violated school rules and put the victim's safety in jeopardy.

The fourth student, Joseph Bomgardner, was suspended for one year. He also faces other sanctions and must take five counseling sessions.

All four white students are accused of putting a u-shaped bike lock around their roommate's neck and taunting him because of the color of his skin.

Bad Cop No Donut, 3 May 2014: Drunken Trigger Happy NYPD'ers On Parade

Blind-drunk cop shot stranger 6 times: police

A city cop started his day with a little target practice at the NYPD firing range — and ended it by getting blind drunk at a bar, pulling out his gun and blasting a random stranger who had pulled up next to him in a car, police sources said Wednesday.

NYPD Officer Brendan Cronin drove up to a stoplight just past the city border in Pelham, Westchester, a bit before midnight Tuesday and allegedly unloaded his boozy barrage at a passenger in another car.
He fired 13 shots, hitting the man six times, the sources said.

Cronin, 27, capped his night of misadventure by nearly getting himself killed — allegedly pointing his Glock 9mm at officers who stopped him after he fled the scene of the shooting.


Detective shoots partner, drives ‘drunk’ to hospital

A Brooklyn detective got blitzed on his way to a robbery investigation Thursday and drunkenly shot his partner in the hand while showing him his old-school six-shooter, police sources said.
With blood all over the front seat, Detective Jay Poggi, a 31-year veteran, drove Matt Sullivan to the hospital despite a blood-alcohol level that allegedly was above the legal limit, the sources said.

The shot cop, who has been on the job 15 years, needed surgery on his wrist, but was in stable condition. Poggi was arrested for DWI.

The detectives had set out from the 75th Precinct in East New York around 1 a.m., telling their bosses they were tracking a robbery suspect in the Rockaways.

But instead of hunting down leads, the detectives stopped off at the Cross Bay Diner in Howard Beach, Queens, where “they sell beer,” a source said.


Latest ‘drunk’ cop accused of shooting woman’s car after date

Yet another NYPD cop has been busted for drunkenly firing their weapon — the third in less than a week.
Sergeant Wanda Anthony of the 122nd Precinct was arrested in Watchung, NJ, early Wednesday when she fired a shot into another woman’s car at around 3:30 a.m., sources said.

The Staten Island cop, who has a tattoo of an AK-47, was wasted at the time and was coming home from a date with a man when his wife stormed out of the house and confronted her, sources said.

During the argument, she pulled out her service weapon and fired, hitting the car, the sources said. No one was injured.
Anthony was charged with driving with intoxicated. Sources said more charges may be pending in the incident.
