State Senator Has Date With Gay Porn Performer/Escort

State Sen. Paul Koering, Republican-Fort Ripley, Minnesota may have made his re-election chances markedly dimmer following the disclosure of a dinner date earlier this month with a gay porn actor who divides his time between Brainerd, Minnesota and Jason Curious’s casting agency (DV8 Casting) inWest Hollywood.

“I don’t see anything wrong with going out with him,” Koering told gay news website The Sword about his Sunday night date with Brandon Wilde. “Do I think that being a porn star is the best thing? No. But that’s his choice. I think he’s a nice guy.”

The Brainerd Dispatch subsequently published this statement from Minnesota GOP state chair Tony Sutton: “Instead of focusing his efforts on job creation and the betterment of Senate District 12, Paul Koering has demonstrated incredibly poor judgment by spending time with an escort and pornographic film star. With his campaign message of lower taxes, sensible government and economic development, Paul Gazelka is the right leader for Senate District 12, and the Republican Party of Minnesota stands united behind his candidacy.”

Koering, who successfully beat back a GOP primary challenge during his 2006 reelection bid, decided not to seek his party’s endorsement this year, but instead to run in the primary against party endorsee Gazelka, of Baxter, who previously served a single term in the Minnesota House.

According to The Sword, Koering and Wilde dined at Iven’s on the Bay in Brainerd, ordering strip steak and beef medallions, and Koering picked up the check.

Wilde tweeted about the date beforehand: “lol so funny!! in 45 min’s im going to dinner with the senator.”

Wilde, who has appeared in such gay porn features as My Brother’s Hot Friend and Cruiser Boys, is described as a twink, Wilde who is known for distinctive tiger-paw tattoos on his chest has told various insiders in the gay porn industry that he told this story to help his career develop a better profile.

Wilde also told The Sword that he and Koering met at a gay pride picnic in Brainerd, and that they had made plans for another date.

Koering acknowledged to The Sword that he doesn’t approve of Wilde’s line of work — and that he told him so — but that he did ask for another dinner date.

The media continues to have a field day with the story, causing The Sword (the official blog for Naked Sword) to be flooded with internet visitors.
