That was my reaction when I read the news on CNN.com (it wasn't even on the Malaysian newspaper websites yet).
Really, I think many Malaysians are getting sick of how dirty Malaysian politics is. Personally, I think it's a smear campaign. In addition, it is noteworthy that "sodomy, even if consensual, is punishable by imprisonment"; IMHO, a person's sexual orientation speaks nothing about his leadership abilities (not that I believed any of the original accusations anyway). After well, we've had nothing but a bunch of straight but corrupt, racist and inefficient leaders.
We'll see how this saga unfolds.
