Yet another Christianist pol on Grindr

Bill Sanderson
Republican Bill Sanderson has been in the Tennessee General Assembly since 2010. Sanderson promoted his conservative Christianity and was a dependable anti-LGBTQ vote in the chamber. Turns out the Bill has been a naughty boy, trolling for young men on Grindr. He has resigned.

According to his campaign website:
Bill Sanderson is proudly pro-life and pro-family. As our State Representative, he is leading the charge to defend the rights of the unborn and preserve the values that have defined our families for generations.
[…]
Bill Sanderson knows that our nation was founded on conservative, Christian values. That’s why he filed a bill that would require “In God We Trust” to be on all state issued license plates.
According to political reporter, Cari Wade Gervin:
Sanderson’s extracurricular activities have long been an open secret around the Capitol. I, for one, have known about a set of Grindr communications for three years. But only recently, in the wake of the scandals involving House Speaker Glen Casada and his former chief of staff Cade Cothren, along with the increasing pressure to oust alleged molester Rep. David Byrd (R-Waynesboro), did sources agree to let me write about the messages and encounters.
The Casada scandal involves graft and racism (Casada is an anti-LGBTQ extremist). As for Mr. Byrd, three women have accused him of molesting them when they were underage teens. Gee, I thought that Tennessee was the nation's morality capital.
