The Fargo Forum reports State Rep. Randy Boehning (R-Fargo) claims the disclosure of the photo is "payback" for his opposition to Senate Bill 2279, who would have expanded the rights of gays and lesbians in North Dakota.

The disclosure came when Dustin Smith, a 21 year-old from from Bismarck contacted the Forum saying he recognized Boehning from a gay dating smartphone app called Grindr.
