When the married Air Force protocol officer from MacDill AFB pulled up to a Wendys fast-food restaurant in Seminole County Florida, he was looking forward to a hot session under the sheets with a teenage boy. Instead, he got the shock of his life when he was busted by undercover cops who slapped the cuffs on and hauled him off to jail.
Stephen Governale, an Air Force Reserve officer who was named CENTCOM's civilian "employee of the year" in 2011, has some explaining to do to his wife and college student daughter when he gets back to Tampa. But as of press time, the 49 year-old light colonel is cooling his heels in the county jail. He is being held without bail.
On his Facebook page, Governale had boasted of once working for Gen. David Patraeus. Sources tell MilitaryCorruption.com the balding boy lover was currently functioning as protocol officer for an Air Force general at MacDill.
SOUGHT OUT TEEN-AGE BOYS FOR SEX PARTNERS
The parents of a teen-age boy in Tampa discovered x-rated e-mail allegedly between Governale and their son and contacted the authorities.
A "sting" was set up, and several police posed online as underage boys who sought "get-togethers" with a middle-aged man. We are told there is a 40-page charge sheet that includes such steamy sex talk that even we cannot quote from it here.
Investigators learned that Governale took one teenage boy to a hotel room in 2009 where they watched porno films, slept in the same bed, and engaged in sex acts. The youngster later told cops that the colonel assured him that what they were doing was not really "gay."
Court papers also detail another sex session this past spring in Brevard County. Once again, Governale is said to have taken his youthful companion to a hotel.
One report indicates Lt. Col. Governale may have had sex with at least four under-age male youths.
The pervert is facing charges he used the Internet "to entice a minor into engaging in sexual activity."
