Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake Urge Brewer Veto of Arizona Anti-Gay Discrimination Bill

Mccain Flake

"I hope Governor Brewer will veto #SB1062," Arizona Senator John McCain tweeted this morning, joining his colleague Senator Jeff Flake who tweeted a nearly identical message over the weekend.

Brewer spoke about the bill with CNN on Friday:

“Well, it’s a very controversial piece of legislation. We know that. We know that it’s failed in a lot of states across the country. ... I’ve been reading about it on the Internet and I will make my decision some time before ... by next Friday ... if I do decide to sign it. But it’s very controversial, so I’ve got to get my hands around it.”

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) apologized today after offensive statements on his teenage son's social media accounts were uncovered by Buzzfeed.

FlakeSen. Jeff Flake’s high school-aged son Tanner used twitter to threaten the “faggot” who stole his bike that he “will find you, and … will beat the crap out of you,” joked about an acquaintance stealing one-liners because he’s Jewish, and went by the name “n1ggerkiller” in an online game.

Another message said "I'm down to own some faggots."

Said Flake to Buzzfeed:

“I’m very disappointed in my teenage son’s words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity. This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well."

Flake's son's YouTube comments contain the same slurs, and also "called Mexicans the 'scum of the Earth' and on several occasions bragged that his father is a member of Congress.

Update: a reader sends in a sampling of Tanner Flake's comments from YouTube.
