Dating site for Trump supporters bans gays, but allowed married people

A dating website promising to match pro-Trump supporters has removed the main photograph from its homepage after local media identified one of the people portrayed in the image as a North Carolina conservative activist who has a child sex conviction. Then 25 years old, he made a sex tape of himself and a 15-year-old girl. The outlet reports Riddleberger's "past includes a felony conviction for taking indecent liberties with a child in in 1995".

"I've already paid my debt for something I did 25 years ago", Riddleberger reportedly told WRAL and would not comment further on the "past".

Barrett Riddleberger said Monday that the sexual orientation issue was a programming glitch and would be fixed.

Trump Dating is a new addition to the Friends Worldwide Dating Network, which describes itself as a "market leader in [the] niche dating industry". The Trump.Dating site bears an nearly exact resemblance to the company's non-political dating site, other than the Trump theme.

Riddleberger is not listed in the North Carolina sex offender registry, nor, as WRAL notes, does he have any subsequent criminal charges. He and his wife of 22 years are no longer featured on the page. Many people raised questions about the site not allowing LGBTQ people to join, but seemingly enabling some to commit infidelity. The Riddlebergers, who have always been active in local Republican politics, wouldn't say what their role was with the site.

A dating site for supporters of Donald Trump offers the opportunity to find love without the "awkwardness" of having to reveal your politics in the middle of a first date.

WRAL News attempted to locate him Monday to no success.

However, LGBT lonely hearts will have to look elsewhere to find their America First romance - the site only allows users to sign up as "straight man" or "straight woman".

Premium memberships cost $13.95 for a six-month plan, $17.95 for a three-month plan, or $24.95 for a one month plan.

"Being with someone who shares the same core standards is absolutely essential if you're truly searching for a real, life-changing relationship and we have a feeling that if you're on this site, that's exactly what you're looking for".
