Mike Yenni Responds To The Whole Sexting-With-A-Teen-Boy Scandal Then Promptly Goes Into Hiding

by Graham Gremore September 30, 2016


It’s been a rough day for Mike Yenni, the “happily married with one daughter” Republican from Louisiana who was just outed for allegedly having an affair with a 17-year-old Catholic school boy.

According to local New Orleans news station WWL-TV, 40-year-old Yenni, the former mayor of Kenner, LA and current Jefferson Parish President, allegedly sexted with the teenager while he was on the campaign trail last year. He also allegedly gave the youth designer underwear, kissed him in a mall bathroom, and suggested they have a threesome with another 19-year-old male.

According to the station, Louisiana’s age of consent is 17, which means any sexual contact between Yenni and the teen would not have been illegal, but federal law bars the use of any telecommunications device to engage in “obscene” conversation with anyone under the age of 18. So there were whispers that the FBI was investigating the matter.

Indeed, Craig Betbeze, a spokesman for the FBI, told WWL-TV, “We have been made aware of the allegations and are looking into it.” It was also confirmed that the feds had taken the teen’s cell phone.

Yenni’s camp had remained tight-lipped about the whole thing until this afternoon, when his media consultant Greg Buisson finally released the following very brief, very vague statement:

Mike does not believe there’s any reason he should be contacted [by the FBI] because he maintains that he has not violated any laws personally or professional. And that’s his belief at this point.

According to, Buisson refused to elaborate on the allegations or what they could mean for Yenni politically, insisting that the politician, who was out of the office today and appears to have gone into hiding, will have no further comment on the matter.

The teen is also keeping quiet for now, telling Queerty in an email, “I’m not doing any further correspondence with media outlets for the time being.”

It should be noted that this is not the first time Yenni has been embroiled in a sexting scandal. WWL-TV reports that he was accused of sending racy messages to eight different adult men and one adult woman during a three week period between December 2009 and January 2010 using a city-issued BlackBerry.

Does anyone else feel like there’s another shoe just waiting to drop here?
