Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC): 'I Ain't Gay' and I'm Not Having 'a Clandestine Affair with Ricky Martin'

Graham  

In a new NYT profile by Robert Draper, Senator Lindsey Graham denies the gay rumors:

"For his sins, Glenn Beck termed the senator Obama Lite, while Rush Limbaugh labeled him Lindsey Grahamnesty. Less tame are the blogosphere monikers, like 'Miss Lindsey,' that play off of Graham’s never-married status. During a South Carolina Tea Party rally this spring, one speaker created an uproar by postulating that Graham supported a guest-worker program out of fear that the Democrats might otherwise expose his homosexuality. (Graham smirked when I brought this up. 'Like maybe I’m having a clandestine affair with Ricky Martin,' he said. '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. I ain’t gay. Sorry.')"

And it ain't his first time at this rodeo, either.

Watch: Senator Lindsey Graham Gay-Baited at Tea Party Rally

A teabagger at a Tea Party rally in Greenville, South Carolina late last week gay-baited Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), questioning what it is about Graham that separates his values from those of the Tea Party.

Teabagger Says the speaker: "Barney Frank has been more honest and brave than you. At least we know about Barney Frank, nobody’s going to hold it over his head. Look, I’m a tolerant person. I don’t care about your private life, Lindsey. But as our U.S. senator, I need to figure out why you’re trying to sell out your own countrymen, I need to make sure you being gay isn’t it."

Salon writes: "What's interesting here is the thought obviously running through the speaker's head: that something about the personal features of a politician like Barney Frank or Lindsey Graham explains their otherwise disagreeable behavior. The argument isn't that Frank and, supposedly, Graham, are horrible liberal traitors, and gay to boot. It’s that they are, or might be, horrible liberal traitors because they're gay. And once you notice this type of argument here, you realize that it's everywhere. This is the basic case against President Obama as well. It's not just that his policies are bad. It's that he is somehow not one of us, doesn't understand our country and its traditions, and so is in fact working for the other side."

Watch: GOP Senator Lindsey Graham Asked About Gay Rumors

Lindseygraham

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was asked about rumors he is gay by Mike Stark of The Crooked Dope.

Writes Stark: "At Justice Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings, Senator Lindsey Graham asked her about anonymous comments offered by a range of lawyers. These comments were negative, mostly having to do with the Justice’s temperament. Leaving aside the fact that Justice Scalia’s acidic demeanor never seemed to bother any of the white male Senators called upon to confirm him, I did think it was notable to ask a nominated Justice to comment on accusations made by anonymous accusers. I especially found it interesting because there is no shortage of rumors regarding Senator Graham’s sexual orientation. That puts Graham in almost the same position Justice Sotomayor except nobody that I know of has asked Senator Graham to respond to the rumors. What’s more, if Graham did have gay relations while a member of the military, he broke the law."

After his question is brushed off, Stark says to Graham, "I'm guessing that after a long career in the military, you're not going to dignify any of these rumors with any kind of comment."

Says Graham, "Right, right."

Asked about DADT, Graham replies, "I want to see what the military says."
