“Senator Hong” Goes Down

Posted by Phoenix Woman on July 28, 2008

Just got the news the other day that Peter Hong, aka the brain for and chief babysitter of former Senator Rod Grams, was busted in a prostitution sting:

Peter Hong, a longtime Republican operative in Minnesota, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a charge of soliciting prostitution in St. Paul.


Hong has been in and out of the Republican side of Minnesota politics since the mid-1990s, when he surfaced as a genial bulldog campaign press secretary for former Sen. Rod Grams, R-Minn. He served as a spokesman for Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s campaign in 2002 and for the Bush-Cheney campaign in Minnesota in 2004.

Most recently, Hong was a point person for presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. Gina Countryman, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota Republican Party, said Hong is not currently working for any Minnesota candidate.

This reminds me that Rod “Family Values” Grams, Hong’s old boss, was having an affair with another staffer, Christine “Dirty Tricks” Gunhus, which started round about (if not before) the time of his divorce from his first wife, Lolly.

    Spot suspects that Hong was on a quality control mission prior to the RNC. You have to admire their attention to detail.

  2. He was filling in for Norm’s dad, who passed away before he could finish his vetting duties.
