Graham To Be Outed?
FITS News ^ | December 22, 2010

Posted on 12/22/2010 2:34:02 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

A blogger who specializes in outing “closeted” gay political figures claims that evidence of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.)’s homosexual lifestyle is about to be released.

“I wonder if Lindsey Graham knows I have pictures of a man who spent the night at his house,” blogger Michael Rogers recently tweeted.

A later tweet from Rogers indicated that he was meeting with an attorney on December 21 to discuss the release of the alleged pictures. On his website, BlogActive, Rogers writes that the meeting with his attorney indeed took place and that a letter has been sent to Graham’s office.

“I’ve prepared a written letter for Lindsey Graham’s press secretary that I will be mailing (Wednesday),” Rogers writes. will be sharing the next step which is to contact Lindsey Graham’s office (as instructed by my counsel) to show them what I have and to see if they want to make an on the record comment.”

Two months ago, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt said during a nationally-televised interview that he knew the identity of a homosexual U.S. Senator who was on the verge of being outed – but declined to name names.

“We know we’ve got a gay senator,” Flynt said during an appearance on CNN’s Newsroom. “We (would) just like to see him come out of the closet. And I think we’ll be exposing that in the next few months if he doesn’t.”

Flynt added that “we were ready to expose the senator at one time, but then the guy who is really his lover was actually married and that produced a kind of conflict that we didn’t want to — that we didn’t want to go to.”

Rumors about Graham’s alleged homosexuality have been whispered about in Palmetto political circles for many years, although no concrete proof has ever been offered.

These rumors attracted renewed attention back in April when the leader of a group that opposes Graham’s liberal policies on illegal immigration demanded that the Senator “make his homosexual lifestyle public knowledge in the interest of political integrity and national security.” The group’s spokesman claimed that Graham was “being manipulated” as a result of his alleged homosexuality.

Before that, a Democratic Congressional candidate claimed that Graham was one of several powerful Palmetto State Republicans who was also a closeted homosexual (Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and Senate President Glenn McConnell were the others). She later withdrew her remark and claimed that she had no direct knowledge of Graham’s lifestyle.

Graham addressed these rumors directly for the first time back in July, telling New York Times reporter Robert Draper that he was not homosexual.

“I ain’t gay,” Graham told Draper.

As we’ve said on numerous previous occasions, we don’t care about Graham’s sexual orientation. Whether he’s gay, straight or asexual, that’s his choice – and he should be allowed to make it. Of course if he is being manipulated due to that choice … then that’s obviously a serious problem.

We oppose Graham for the simple reason that he is one of the most left-leaning “Republicans” in America – supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants as well as President Barack Obama’s push for higher energy taxes.

Isn't he an Army Reservist, as well? Guess DADT was done away with just in time for him, if this "allegation" is true!!

A while back I recall a gossip item about Graham and Laura Ingraham “canoodleing” at a trendy Washington bistro.

As far as I am concerned any Senator who voted to do away with DADT is either gay, fag hag or bi-sexual.

Homosexual sex is repugnant to straight men and no straight would vote to destroy our military with it.

Lindsey Graham is a JAG officer in the reserve, IIRC.

Let’s see what this guy has, if anything. He’d better be right, or he’s in for it and it could backfire big time, because Graham voted against the repeal.

A Fellow Freeper who lives in South Carolina stated that it was common knowledge down there that Linsie Grahmnesty was a Closet Gay! Living that undercover life sure makes one ripe for Blackmail! not accusing anyone, but just stating a fact!

Unfortunately no one thinks about the repugnant acts because you are not allowed to talk about them. Just like you cannot talk about what takes place during a partial birth abortion. Libs don't want the arguments clouded by facts. They deal in euphemisms and feelings.

The homosexuals give him a pass on votes against same-sex marriage a DADT because he caves on the really important votes like Kagan, Sotomayor and Holder.

Helping Lindsey keep his sexuality hidden has only helped the homosexual agenda.

I'm not defending LG but what right does the blogger (or Larry Flynt) have to out someone's sexual preference? Would he do that if the guy was a RAT? I am so sick and tired of all this political character assassination BS.

If the guy wants to out someone, why doesn't he "out" Obama? Like where was the SOB born?

Does he frequently drape his naked body in diaphanous gowns and then bound across sun drenched flower strewn fields? While bounding does he scatter rainbows and sparkly things from a wicker basket?

I tend to agree with you. I’m not a fan of Graham politically, and I think South Carolina can do a whole lot better. But this Rogers guy is scum in my book.

As for Flynt...well, I can’t really voice my opinion on him without violating both the FR rules and ruining my own Christmas spirit...

Well- if Rogers has the goods, Graham is in for some serious pain and he’d be better off coming out himself.

Regardless- Graham is an untrustworthy vote in the Senate.

Rogers? He’s a rotten little man.

Sexual blackmail in politics is nothing new and yet like the proverbial train wreck..we watch!

I seriously doubt that Senator Graham is homosexual. And I see that Larry Flynt is in on this vicious rumor-mongering. FReepers may recall his portrayal of Sarah Palin as a porn star. Flynt is a sicko and, of course, a Leftist.

It’s a real sad time in America, when disagreement with an elected official’s positions leads to deeply personal allegations. I note that these allegations vs. Graham have come from all sides.

that was cover for him. nothing serious. everyone
in sc knows he is gay. i think the libs might be shocked
when there is little or no response to outing.
his problem is he’s pro-amnesty and goes along
with dems too much. that is the outrage.

A.) I didn’t write this article.
B.) I don’t know Senator Graham personally, but every time I see him on television my “Gaydar” shrieks like a tornado siren in Slater, Iowa.
C.) Just because Larry Flint says something doesn’t make it untrue. I have no use for him, but he’s not the main one doing the “outing” as I understand it.
D.) The “allegations” are coming from a homosexual blog, not a conservative site.
E.) Why do you “doubt” that Sen. Graham is a homosexual? Do you know him as a close friend? Did you suspect Sen. Larry Craig or Gov. Crist?

Well stated! Rogers is a creep, “put-up or shut-up”!
Graham rumors have been around far too long and those rumors will continue, until evidence of homosexuality is proved, because Graham can’t disprove a negative.

Like you said, Graham’s votes are never reliable, so either way, Graham has to go. He’s not a conservative, and the US Senate seat in South Carolina, needs to be filled by a reliable conservative in 2014.

Whether or not you are a Larry Flynt fan, you are putting yourself in league with him by promoting his rumor-mongering.

Try reading the articles you post. It states that Graham was also alleged to be homosexual by a group that opposes illegal immigration.

I think the real topic here is YOUR fascination with the sex lives of public figures.

In the military, Generals and Admirals are known as Flag Grade officers. I wonder how many on them will soon be FAG Grade officers?

Well, let's see... There is a ton of circumstantial evidence and plenty of witnesses, as well as some sick poetry by himself, that Barack Obama is on the Down Low. And yet we hear nothing.

If being gay is so great, why did a lot of Barry's Down Low partners at Trinity end up suddenly dead in "robbery" hits as he was running for President???

Let's not let them out Linnie unless they out Limo Barack too.
