Bob Allen's Men's Room Misadventures

In July of 2007, Bob Allen's political career was ruined when he got so scared of a black guy in a public bathroom that he offered to give him $20 and oral sex.

At least that's his story. The police tell the story a little differently. According to them, Allen, then a Republican member of the Florida House of Representatives, offered an undercover police officer $20 if he could perform oral sex on him. From the arrest affidavit:
As I stood in the stall drying my hands, I observed Allen look over the door of my stall and make eye contact with me. Allen then stepped away and then came back to the door of my stall and looked in, making eye contact with me again. I said "hey buddy" and Allen said "hi" and then stepped away again. About 5 seconds later, Allen pushed open the door to my stall and stepped inside. I was standing against the far wall of the stall. Allen closed the door behind him and stood against it, I said "whats up" and Allen again said "hi." Allen then said "this is kind of a public place isn't it." I said "do you have somewhere else we can go". Allen said "How about across the bridge, it's quiet over there". Allen engaged me in a conversation in which it was agreed that he would pay me $20.00 in order to perform a "blow job" on me. Allen, who is married and has a daughter, was arrested. He resigned his position in the Florida House of Representatives and he was ordered by the court to complete a class in HIV Awareness.
