Haggard and The Hooker (Part Two)

Or three.  Or Four.


BREAKING NEWS:


MSNBC just now reporting that Haggard told a Denver TV station he DID buy methamphetamine from a gay escort and DID meet him at a motel for a "massage".  I'll be watching for video.  All this from a guy who has promoted an anti-gay religious philosophy.  Heck, he even showed up in that "Jesus Camp" documentary explaining to youngsters why being gay was bad.  Will any of his millions of evangelical followers still be with him come Tuesday?


UPDATE: MSNBC just had the escort on - live - and he's standing by his story.  He says Haggard did meth each time they met for sex.  And he says those meetings were pretty much monthly.  Haggard paid him about $200 each time. Ouch.


UPDATE 2: Here's the Haggard video, via Think Progress


UPDATE 3: AmericaBlog notes a fairly substantial discrepancy -


Haggard voicemail says he wanted to buy "more" crystal meth. Yet Haggard claims today he only bought it once and threw it out.
