Graham To Be Outed?
A blogger who specializes in outing “closeted” gay political figures claims that evidence of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.)’s homosexual lifestyle is about to be released.
“I wonder if Lindsey Graham knows I have pictures of a man who spent the night at his house,” blogger Michael Rogers recently tweeted.
A later tweet from Rogers indicated that he was meeting with an attorney on December 21 to discuss the release of the alleged pictures. On his website, BlogActive, Rogers writes that the meeting with his attorney indeed took place and that a letter has been sent to Graham’s office.
“I’ve prepared a written letter for Lindsey Graham’s press secretary that I will be mailing (Wednesday),” Rogers writes. will be sharing the next step which is to contact Lindsey Graham’s office (as instructed by my counsel) to show them what I have and to see if they want to make an on the record comment.”
Two months ago, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt said during a nationally-televised interview that he knew the identity of a homosexual U.S. Senator who was on the verge of being outed – but declined to name names.
“We know we’ve got a gay senator,” Flynt said during an appearance on CNN’s Newsroom. “We (would) just like to see him come out of the closet. And I think we’ll be exposing that in the next few months if he doesn’t.”
Flynt added that “we were ready to expose the senator at one time, but then the guy who is really his lover was actually married and that produced a kind of conflict that we didn’t want to — that we didn’t want to go to.”
Rumors about Graham’s alleged homosexuality have been whispered about in Palmetto political circles for many years, although no concrete proof has ever been offered.
These rumors attracted renewed attention back in April when the leader of a group that opposes Graham’s liberal policies on illegal immigration demanded that the Senator “make his homosexual lifestyle public knowledge in the interest of political integrity and national security.” The group’s spokesman claimed that Graham was “being manipulated” as a result of his alleged homosexuality.
Before that, a Democratic Congressional candidate claimed that Graham was one of several powerful Palmetto State Republicans who was also a closeted homosexual (Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and Senate President Glenn McConnell were the others). She later withdrew her remark and claimed that she had no direct knowledge of Graham’s lifestyle.
Graham addressed these rumors directly for the first time back in July, telling New York Times reporter Robert Draper that he was not homosexual.
“I ain’t gay,” Graham told Draper.
As we’ve said on numerous previous occasions, we don’t care about Graham’s sexual orientation. Whether he’s gay, straight or asexual, that’s his choice – and he should be allowed to make it. Of course if he is being manipulated due to that choice … then that’s obviously a serious problem.
We oppose Graham for the simple reason that he is one of the most left-leaning “Republicans” in America – supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants as well as President Barack Obama’s push for higher energy taxes.
