Air Force Colonel Claims Heterosexual Discrimination

An Air Force Colonel with a long┬álist of criminal charges┬ásays the charges of adultery — normally “add-on” charges — should be dropped, because they discriminate against heterosexuals:

Col. Eugene Marcus Caughey is headed for an August court-martial on charges of rape, assault, taking a dirty selfie and [six] adultery counts…

The military’s adultery law requires “sexual intercourse” as an element of guilt, which
the Pentagon defines as an act between a man and a woman.

“A homosexual man or woman couldn’t commit adultery as defined,” [his lawyer] argued.

He seems to have a point — not that it makes him look any better.
