The Dysfunctional Family That Is The ‘Family Values’ Based GOP Continues To Shock With Double Standards And Hypocrisy
Republican hypocrisy has been on full display yet again as a senator from Tennessee who has pushed for anti-LGBTQ legislation throughout his career has been hit with a sex scandal that involves his cousin.
Oh the tangled webs this man has woven.
According to Nashville Scene, it all began when it Hensley’s wife Gina obtained evidence of the affair and passed it along to Lori’s husband Don Barber. Although Joey and Lori claim their relationship began after the Hensley’s divorced in 2014, it appears based on phone calls and text messages Gina Hensley gave to Don Barber it actually began much earlier than that.

Joey Hensley made a name for himself as senator by doing everything he could to make life hell for the LGBTQ community in his state. As the New Zealand Herald reports, Hensley was responsible for a “Don’t Say Gay” bill intended to prevent teachers from even mentioning homosexuality in classrooms. Also, he was able to get a bill passed that allows school councillors at colleges to refuse working with LGBTQ students contemplating suicide if they opposed to it on religious or ‘moral’ grounds.
