That’s what I said. I dont’ care WHO it is...you DO NOT put up with that kind of perverted nonsense. Makes one wonder if this story is true or not. Sensationalism maybe??

Brooks is disappointed it didn't lead to any real action.

Also he said: “Ehhh, like get me outta here????” I know what I would have done. This is bogus...put the story out there with no fact to back it up. Then he won’t name the guy? Bogus, bogus, bogus.

Similar to the “unnamed sources” ruse. As long as they’re unnamed, they don’t have to be real. Our side should take a stand on this: if they’re not going to name them, WE should not assume they’re telling the truth.

Pretty talented guy who only uses one hand to complete a full meal. I wonder if he had steak? I’d like to have seen that accomplishment. I think this story is BS. Since when is the NY Times worried about secrecy?

Why of course...I totally believe that a male US Senator would rest his hand on a male NY Times columnist's leg throughout an entire dinner. Sure, makes perfect sense...

Yup. He claims he did`nt like it, but supposedly allowed it to continue for the entire dinner.

Because he was hoping he'd move it farther up but didn't and now Brooks is having a hissy fit.

Why were two men sitting that close at dinner to begin with...that had to look odd?

Dinner with a Republican Senator or was he just having cool-aid and “coke” in the back of a limo of a certain “former” Democrat Senator from Chicago?

Anyone can say anything...doesn’t mean it has an ounce of truth to it.

Larry Sinclair named names and NO ONE in the MSM mentions it. This lying weasel fabricates an “unbelievable” story from thin air and the MSM are all over it...ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!

Aw who gives a $hit....he's gay, you're gay, everyone's gay in the world today. Can't turn on a tv program or watch a movie without 1 or 2 or 7 gays in the story line. What's the big hairy deal? Let's all glorify and honor all things gay OK?

Well the hell with that, I'm sick and tired of it. I am a raging heterosexual male who still likes a woman. I want some good old fashioned hetero stories out there for those few like me, who are still heterosexual. What are there about 20,000 of us left in America? Boy I'm tired of stories about gays. Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay.....all gay all the time. pfffft....gimme just plain old vanilla stuff ......PLEASE?

Why didn't Brooks knock him out?

Why didn't Brooks remove his hand?

Why didn't Brooks name him when it happened?

Why doesn't Brooks name him now?

Sissy or liar?

Or both?

Did Brooks say WHICH hand? If Brooks was seated on the politician's right, then it had to be the right hand. In such case, we need to list all the LEFT HANDED Senators to find the culprit. s/off

Exactly, and furthermore this is he said/he said. Was there a witness to this? Unless he has corroboration, it's just "talk". The right response to this (if even true) would have been, leaning over and whispering, "please remove your hand from my "inner thigh"".

This sounds suspicious, it was probably his dinner napkin, how tedious of this creepy man.
