The Travails Of Reverend Ted Haggard

by Sanford Levinson

just-posted storyThe New York Times
"Mr. Haggard said a Denver hotel referred him to Mr. Jones for the purpose of getting a massage. He said he met with Mr. Jones and bought the drug. "I was tempted, I bought it, but I did not use it," he said today....

He said he threw the drug out shortly after buying it. "I never kept it very long because it was wrong," he said. [Note that the syntax suggests repeated purchases.]

Asked if he engaged in sex with Mr. Jones, he said, "No I did not."
