Gay GOProud Board Member to Challenge Lindsey Graham?

Bruce Carroll, who blogs at the conservative site GayPatriot, says he's exploring a primary challenge to Senator Lindsey Graham, the National Review reports

CarrollIf Carroll goes forward with this, he will have to complete a Statement of Intention of Candidacy (SIC) form with the state GOP and a Statement of Economic Interest (SEI) form with the State Ethics Commission. The filing period does not begin until March 16, 2014, and closes March 30.

He will have to submit a filing fee of 1 percent of the annual salary of the office multiplied by the number of years in the term of office (or $100, whichever is greater). This year the salary for a U.S. senator is $174,000, so if it remains the same for 2014, the filing fee will be $10,440.

  2. Well, if there's ONE homocon that is MORE crazy, more extreme, more right-wing and more anti-gay than Miss Graham it would be Bruce Carroll.

  5. Is this the same queen who stuffed his face with Chick-fil-A on its "Appreciation Day" and taped it to show his father?

  6. $174 thousand? Is that all? Well, I gues once you throw in the free global travel, free healthcare for life and free education for themselves, their families and the families of their staffs, I guess that's fair.

    (Read somewhere that they and their staffsand their families aren't requird to pay back student loans - from a Fox News outlet, no less!)

    I have an idea! How about congresspeople and senators receive o more thanthe average of what hourly wage earners in their states make.

    That would discourage politicians from squatting in those positions for life and encourage them to actually deliver on their eternal promises to deliver jobs at fair, livable wages to their constituents...

  8. I'm in SC- IIRC Tim Scott has to go on the ballott to win the remainder of Demint's term. So this will be three gay Rs in SC primaries for US Senate. And boy- if you don't think our education & infant mortality rates are embarassing, our gay ploiticians are even lower quality. As always our de facto stat emotto will be 'thank god for Mississippi.'

  9. Two Right Wing gay men competing for the Republican primary victory. What to do? What to do? Vote for the straight democrat in the general election. He has got to be better than either of them.

  10. An openly gay man of dubious political affiliations will challenge a closeted gay man of dubious political affiliations.

    Gee, I can hardly wait.

  11. Mr Carroll is also looking to join that elite group of Republican Federal pols who receive a PENSION. Why should Sen Graham be the only one whose interior decorator bills will be paid for by the American taxpayer.

  12. it's like a dance battle between Ed Grimley Jr. and Pee Wee Herman.

    Except Grimley and Herman were actually the personification of innocence, not slime.

  13. Huh. A couple of gray-faced old queens slapping each other with lilies?

    Seems I've seen this show before.
