Craigslist scandal

On the night of August 6, 2011, Hinkle reportedly responded to and made arrangements with an 18 year old man, Kameryn Gibson, whose Craigslist posting of "I need a sugga daddy," peaked his interest. Hinkle responded via his personal email address, offering him $80 plus tip in exchange for "a couple hours of your [Gibson's] time tonight," and a tip of up to $50 or $60 "for a really good time."[2]

That night, Hinkle reportedly met Gibson at his home and drove him to the formerly agreed upon JW Marriott hotel. Hinkle instructed Gibson to go to the room alone, stating that they should not be seen together. Once inside, Gibson told The Star that Hinkle changed his clothes and revealed his identity as a state lawmaker. When Gibson attempted to leave, Hinkle grabbed his arm and said, "You need to do this, because I came and got you, and I'm not taking you back until we do what we need to do." According to Gibson, Hinkle then dropped the towel he was wearing and sat down on the bed naked. Gibson excused himself to the bathroom and proceeded to call to his sister Megan, who came to his aid at the hotel. After a strongly worded bout between Hinkle and Gibson's sister, Hinkle agreed to give them his iPad, a BlackBerry and $100 in cash to keep them from calling the police.[2]

After Kameryn and his sister left the hotel, a phone call from Hinkle's wife was received on the BlackBerry. According to Gibson's sister, Mrs. Hinkle offered the siblings $10,000 to keep mum about her husbands sexual identity. In a later conversation between the Representative and Megan Gibson, Hinkle responded, "You just ruined me."[2]

Hinkle's actions are currently under investigation. Megan Gibson, whose email address was used for all of Kameryn's correspondence with the Representative, revealed the communications, stating her conviction that the "creepy" actions be made public because of Hinkle's standing in state affairs.[2]
