A Republican state rep was “openly soliciting sex” and sending “sexually explicit messages and pictures to men almost 40 years his junior,” according to a state political blog,  reports Raw Story.

The Dog and Pony Show, a local political site by Cari Wade Gervin, claimed to have caught the Tennessee state Rep. Bill Sanderson on the gay dating and hookup app Grindr, LGBTQ Nation found.

The site noted that Grindr accounts are very easily faked, but Gervin investigated the account and compared the phone number to Sanderson’s; they match.

Sanderson has voted against LGBTQ policies at the state level during his term in the statehouse. The state passed a bill preventing cities from adopting anti-LGBTQ discrimination ordinances. He also denounced the Supreme Court after they ruled that same-sex marriage bans were unconstitutional.
