In the last session of the Florida legislature, conservative republican State Representative Robert Allen sponsored a failed bill that would have tightened the state's prohibition on public sex.

He also has been a supporter of amending the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage and has opposed a bill to curb bullying of gay students.
"I'm not in anyway associated with that they are saying, this is disgusting." state representative Bob Allen said shortly after he was arrested Wednesday.

Titusville, Florida police say they have arrested Republican Florida State Representative Robert "Bob" Allen, of Merrit Island, on second degree charges for solicitation for prostitution.

Allen, 48, was arrested Wednesday afternoon at Veteran's Memorial Park on East Broad St. in Titusville. The park was under surveillance by a detail of undercover police officers.

Officers say they noticed Allen acting suspicious as he went in and out of the men's restroom 3 times. Minutes later, he solicited an undercover male officer inside the restroom, offering to perform oral sex for $20. Officers realized he was a public figure after the arrest.

Married with one daughter, Allen has a strong conservative record.

Between 2003 and 2006 Allen voted with the Christian Coalition over 90% of the time.

Allen has been endorsed by the Florida Right to Life Committee and this year he voted to impose a 24-hour waiting period on third-trimester abortions.
