VIDEO: GOP IL Senate Candidate Mark Kirk Denies He's Gay


Here's video of some news I posted about yesterday — GOP Illinois Senate candidate Mark Kirk's response to radio attack ads from rival candidate Andy Martin floating a "solid rumor" that Kirk is gay.

Martin, who says he considers his ad an attack on the entire Republican party in Illinois and says he isn't letting up, talked to FOX News: "[Republican Party Chair] Pat Brady has created a situation, by trying to destroy me, he has made it mandatory that I destroy Kirk."

Brady has said that Martin, who trails Kirk heavily in the polls, isn't a valid candidate.

The primary election is February 2.

  1. "An attack on the entire Republican party" -- just to make sure any of you gay Republicans think the party wants you. He is plain: you can NOT be gay and Republican (unless you are a hypocrite (see above)). They do not want you. They hate you.

  2. And the Log Cabinettes stick their fingers in their ears and say "Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah I can't hear you!"

  4. Can't you find a clip that is not Fox News? Even though this is a local affiliate, I'd rather not be promoting any of that nefarious organization.

  5. Andy I agree, can you please avoid linking clips from Fox News. It seems to happen often here and I cringe every time I see that logo.

  6. Why is a rumor of being gay an "attack" on the whole Republican Party? Shame on you, Mark Kirk.

  7. I think the problem is all the lawsuits flying around from Martin, not just his comments.

  8. Look at that hair! Gay or not, he is a DEVO fan. He's wearing the plastic 'do!

  9. Before any more of you spout off as if this is legit, look up Andy Martin (US politician) on Wikipedia.org and find out what a lunatic he is. He's taken a break from commenting on the "slimy Jews" in order to hurl gay "solid rumors".

    You should really give more context here, Andy.

  10. He is gay and he breaks current military policy by having sex with men while in the military. Very hypocritical....

  11. Mark Kirk aspires to be the Lindsey Graham (R-SC) from Illinois! Another Congressman who's closeted, anti-gay, and in AIPAC's pocket.
