Easy ladies (or depending on the rumor mill you subscribe to, gentlemen) …

Sources close to Tim Scott tell FITS that South Carolina’s junior United States Senator is no longer dating Charleston, S.C. lingerie store owner Zee Patel. In other words he’s single … and ready to mingle.

“It’s been over,” one source said of the relationship, indicating the split was “mutual.”

Scott’s relationship with the Indian-American hottie – whom he referred to publicly as a “close family friend” – became public knowledge last Spring when Patel accompanied him to the exclusive Cloister resort on Georgia’s Sea Island for a three-day junket sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute. Scott – then a U.S. Representative – had to disclose the trip on congressional ethics forms.

Sources close to Patel confirmed the two were no longer romantically involved, although they disputed the “mutual” nature of the breakup.

“He just stopped calling her,” one said.

Ouch …

Scott has made headlines for his strict views on abstinence before marriage, although he admitted in March of 2012 that he was no longer following that standard himself. Still, “at the end of the day, the Bible is very clear: abstinence until marriage. Not to do so is a sin,” Scott told The National Journal.

Both of South Carolina’s U.S. Senators – the 47-year-old Scott and the 57-year-old Lindsey Graham – are bachelors who have never been married, and both have faced rumors regarding their sexual orientation.

Scott has never addressed those rumors, but Graham has.

“I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men — I’m sure hundreds of ’em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge — but I ain’t available,” he told The New York Times Magazine in 2010. “I ain’t gay. Sorry.”

Obviously we don’t care if politicians are gay, straight, bisexual, transgender or whatever floats their boat. All we care about is how they vote. Of course if they go after other politicians for their personal failings (as Graham did with Bill Clinton in the late 1990s) or if they sanctimoniously proclaim Christian values (as Scott has), then their sexuality becomes fair game as far as we’re concerned.

Can someone give me a clue about this “abstinence” hoo-ha? I may be interpreting his statement incorrectly. Does he mean that if he is dating a woman he may want to marry, then abstinence is a must, but if he doesn’t intend to marry a woman then the party is on.

Our lieutenant governor is not married, either. Nor is chocolate afficionado, Mr. Bauer. It’s fine with me if they are in the closet–in SC such a person won’t get very far if he is openly gay, sadly–but such a person will be held accountable if he votes for measures that hurt gay people. People gossip and people know who’s doing whom. Maybe one day men who are gay and in power will feel comfortable enough to be open about they are. I think it would be very therapeutic to “outen” oneself and let the chips fall where they will. Like I said, people know anyway.

Wonder if Detective TwoWay over in Forest Acres is gandering at Timmy TwoShoes picture.

Word down at the 6 to 12 is that the Chief took a black light to TwoWay’s cruiser and the only place they didn’t find DNA was on the catalytic converter. Rumor is that TwoWay tried to pop it once but didn’t realize how long it took for it to cool off, the converter that is..

Libertarians (as FITS claims to be) sure seem to be obbsessed w/ getting into other peoples’ privacy…

If you elect Tom Davis or Ron Paul, I’m guessing any personal info. the gov’t gathers on you (or FITS is allowed to collect by them)…will be given to Libertarian perverts, like FITS or Boz, to distribute.
Creepy….

BigT, I thank you and my agent thanks you. You do more than anyone else to keep my name in the public eye. Yeah, you say negative shit about me, but it’s usually waaaay off the mark, and most people who read your words think you are an idiot anyway. Now, just because I’m thanking you, don’t imagine you’ll ever get a penny from me. You are a non-entity, by virtue of the fact that you hide behind a screen name.

According to SC Secr. of State, the only company that Zee Patel is associated with is Zee, LLC. Bits of Lace, supposedly her company, has a lady named Ruth Brennan as the registered agent. Odd stuff.
