    Is Lindsey Graham gay? | Features | Charleston City Paper

    At 52, the life-long bachelor has been fodder for such rumors for years, but with the resignation of Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho — the anti-gay politician who pled guilty to disorderly conduct after allegedly soliciting sex in an airport men's room — the internet is abuzz over who's next, and they're dying to know what's going on in Graham's bedroom. Is it the latest grasp for the light switch in South Carolina's powerful political closet? Or the inevitable labeling of "closet-clinging self-hater" that befalls any content bachelor?

    Mainstream media often avoids asking older, single politicians what they do in their free time.

    Senator Graham’s Gay Scandal Goes National and Viral

    News of ALIPAC’s request for Senator Lindsey Graham to come out of the closet, so his constituents will be on even footing with corrupt special interests in Washington regarding his secret lifestyle, is being reported nationally and William Gheen will appear on the Thom Hartmann and Lou Dobbs radio shows today.

    William Gheen’s nine minute speech has gone viral on YouTube in the last 24 hours generating over 41,000 views, and has earned over 14 honors in YouTube’s News & Politics including 7th most discussed video, 11th most viewed, and 21st top rated video of the day.

    “It appears that outing a sitting U.S. Senator has become quite a historic undertaking,” said William Gheen, who called for Graham to be honest about his sexual orientation in front of thousands of Tea Party supporters.

    As well they should. They don't ask younger, married ones either, do they?

    Why?

    If Graham is a "conservative", then why is he staunchly supporting the Amnesty AND the draconian Cap and Trade bills? It's pretty obvious he's being blackmailed to do so.

    Posting rules say only a max of 4 sentences allowed if a non-educational/governmental web site. Hence the "read more" disclaimer.

    Here's why...

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england...4513-sen-lindsay-graham-r-sc-compromised.html

    South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham is perhaps the most irritating personification of the RINO label in the U.S. Senate. Despite the overwhelming evidence against manmade global warming and the irrefutable damage Cap and Trade legislation will do to our tottering economy, Graham has teamed with leftist Senator John Kerry to resurrect that legislation we all thought was going nowhere. Kerry himself recently noted that the recession has reduced greenhouse gas pollution by 6 percent. He wants to see another 14 percent reduction by 2020..............................................

    This is interesting, and finds absolutely that the right will eat their own... unless they are in lockstep with the extremists..

    Politics have become increasingly more sordid, and this just adds to the foray.. if you do not agree with our position on anything we will "out" you.. very scary.

    The guy swings from the other side of the plate. That's perfectly fine. He shouldn't hide it though. Not in 2010 anyway. As an aside, he irritates me (C&T + Amnesty). Maybe more so than John Bonehead, but not as much as Newt Gingrich does. There's a guy that needed to go away a long time ago.

    Why do you think he's hiding anything?

    And I like the "not in 2010" comment -- yeah, because clearly in this day and age it isn't as if homosexuality isn't completely accepted. I mean, they can serve openly in the military, get married and have it recognized in every state, have nobody questioning their right to adopt, have nobody insinuating that the church's child molestation issues are due to homosexuality rather than pedophilia...

    So there's no issues with his behavior? No evidence of any sort of wrong doing on his part? Larry Craig was chasing guys in public bathrooms, Barney Frank's lover ran a brothel out of his (Frank's) apartment. These are legitimate reasons to invade someone's privacy.

    Some mouth breather not liking the fact that Graham is only 90% with him is no reason to invade his privacy. Him being in the closet or not is his business and its just one more reason for me to despise the tea party if they think a disagreement over policy is a good reason to stick their noses into someone else's private life.

    Gheen:
    ..."Speak American!...:rofl:..."Remember the Alamo!"...:enranged:..."Shut up Bill Clinton! Last time I checked you weren't in office! SHUT UP!"..."I need to figger out why you're sellin out yer own country and I need to make sure you bein gay isn't it!"

    And then he drops it..."So anyways..."

    This is one of the Teabagger leaders? This sucks. TYhe government wastes trillions of dollars and does nothing to prevent a repeat of the 2008 collapse. We desperately need a movement to reign in government spending on stupid crap instead of what the People need. If anyone thinks ANYONE in Washington with any power is listening to ignint hillbillies like this, they must be crazy. All this energy going to waste....what a wasted opportunity.:mad:

    He shouldn't have to hide it is my point. It matters little to me, and to more people than you think. Gay marraige and adoption are separate issues. While there undoubtedly are bigots out there, I think we've evolved to the point where a politician doesn't have to hide their sexual preference.

    You might want to take another look and work on your reading comprehension.

    See where Wista wrote: "Gheen:"

    That's how one indicates who they're quoting.

    Its the two little dots arranged vertically that tip it off.

    Oh and if Graham is gay (and that certainly hasn't been proven to my satisfaction*) then he's gay for Samuel Alito. Look up his remarks to Alito during his confirmation hearings for proof and Alito sure can't be described as any sort of big government anything.


    *nor has it been proven that any sort of gayness on Graham's part is in any way relevant to anything.

    Does the term "RINO" have any meaning? What does the Republican Party supposedly stand for at this point? (what do the "true Republicans" -- whoever they are -- believe in?)

    I'm not sure how many people you think I think it matters to...

    But while gay marriage and adoption are separate issues, people have problems with both of them -- and I still haven't heard a decent objection to either. And the fact that so many people in this country do still have a problem with either one demonstrates why a person may still want to hide his/her sexual preference.

    I agree that a person shouldn't have to hide it, but it's more than a small minority that still has a problem with people being homosexual.

    Why? Why, if you are ok, fine with someone being a homosexual why would you object to his being married or adopting a child?

    Sounds suspiciously like Animal Farm to me. "All animals are equal - some animals are more equal than others."

    Even if what you say is true, and that more people than we think are fine with someone being gay - they aren't concerned with it, in fact, but they ARE concerned that gays will somehow get the right to marry one another or to adopt a child.....do you really think they are going to vote for the gay candidate who is most likely going to be voting in favor of those things?

    How 'bout try to use punctuation!
    How 'bout try to improve on your reading comprehension!
    How 'bout try to sound out the words out loud while you read them so you can have a better understanding of what you are responding to!

    Hey, if he doesn't want to be taken seriously, he doesn't want to be taken seriously. It's pretty apparent he doesn't and it's equally apparent that he isn't.

    What does either party stand for really? Niether has a clue unfortunately, nor an identity. All one does is point a finger at the other, and win based on a "we're not them" platform. Once elected, Coke simply does what Pepsi did, with the only difference being the names on the checks being different. It's part of the reason why party politics is so stupid. People should vote for candidates, and not for a party.

    BTW, that's part of what the Tea Party movement is about. Voting for people who follow a strict line of ideals, and principles. It's why they are targeting incumbents in both parties.


    You haven't heard a decent objection because of your personal position on each.

    I think candidates need to be as forthcoming about themselves as is humanly possible. Lying about who you are only perpetuates the issues with acceptance. Generally speaking, people should be true to who they are, and let the votes fall where they may. Both personally, and positionally. Don't get me wrong, I understand that in certain places, people benefit from lying, hiding, or misrepresenting themselves. If you want to win, you have to act X, be X, or say X. Personally, I hate that. I'd much rather have someone run for office as their true selves. In the end, I think it's your positions, and quality that matter most.

    If you want to start a thread on gay marraige, feel free too. If not, there are about 100 of them that you can rehash from the archives.

    To me, and I think to most, one's positions on the issues tend to determine who gets their vote. If someone isn't going to vote for me as a candidate because I'm gay, then so be it. I'd much rather lose being true to who I am, than win, lying about whatever I have to, in order to get the most votes. Maybe I'm in the minority on that, but that's who I am. Again though, I do understand why some people feel compelled to do, or say certain things that aren't true.

    I agree re. the parties. I do think the Dems believe in larger government, though I think they're either bs-ing or fooling themselves about its effectiveness. But the term "RINO" amuses me for just that reason.

    False.

    But if you think there are any decent objections to either, please, let's hear them.

    I'd prefer for candidates to be honest. I'd also prefer for people not to vote in bigoted ways. It's an imperfect world.

    But, again, we don't know that Graham is lying about anything.

    Also, let's pretend for a moment that he is gay. Has he ever made a point about being heterosexual, or has he just not made a point of saying that he is gay? (I know little about the guy.) Because if it's the latter, then he's simply not making his sexuality an issue -- something the bigots out there should like, since many of them claim to have no problem with people being gay, just that they always make such a show of it... allegedly.

    Do not understand why someone's sexuality is such a big deal, live and let live.. what goes on behind closed doors is only your business.. seems more and more that there is a desire to have big brother meddle in everything you do.
