Barney Frank: No comment on rumor Lindsey Graham is gay
http://chicago.gopride.com/ ^

Posted on 02/17/2012 9:19:41 AM PST by jakerobins

Washington, D.C. — Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank on Thursday refused to comment on the rumor that South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is gay.

During an appearance on C-SPAN's American Journal, a caller named Frank from Largo, Florida told Frank that he was concerned that closeted lawmakers could be blackmailed during critical budget talks.

Hmmm Sounds like Bwarney knows something about Lindsey.....but isn't going to out him until it will benefit the Democrats.(2014 Senate Elections or if Lindsey gets nominated for a Admin. position and comes before the Senate for questioning)

The only thing that would shock me about Lindsey is if he turns out to be a pitcher, rather than a catcher.

Honest mistake. They probably previously overheard Barney saying that he and his fiance “did a gram last night”.

Rimming, and felching in filthy public restrooms is becoming very popular in DC. We need more deviants off the street and out of politics. Barney, the boy molestor is setting the trend—let the rest of the perverts follow it.

Actually, Frank’s statement was very nuanced:

“I don’t know if Lindsey Graham is gay. Lindsey said he’s not, but his penis certainly tasted like poo.”

“Increasingly, if you’re a Democrat … you pay no penalty for being honest about your sexuality,” Frank said.


“but if you are pwethident,” he continued, “it thtill potheth a problem.”

Hey Chicago GOP....

I realize that the Fraud’s base city is a tough beat, but you can do better than this.

LG, whatever his sexual appetites are, is US Senator from South Carolina, not a senator in the South Carolina legislature, as you have written.

Sexual deviants of either homosexual OR heterosexual preferences have absolutely no business being in elected office. I don’t care if it’s a Barney Frank whiffing on somebody’s woofer, Gary Condit (remember him?) and his little kinks, that freak David Wu in his tiger suit, or (how could we forget) Anthony and his Weiner?

And just for equal time for the GOP, there is Mark Foley from Florida with his penchant for texting young males, David Vitter and prostitutes, and of course there are lots more.

The bottom line is that if immoral men and women are elected to public offices, we can expect immoral and corrupt behavior at some point, sooner or later.

"I have no comment to make about any individual, and no knowledge about any individual," Frank responded. "There are some members of Congress who have not made that public."

Veiled threat defined. That explains much of recent Repub behaviour.

Best way to tell if he is gay, is to get behind him and yell “HEY! C*CKS*CKER!” If he turns around, he is.

Probably wouldn’t hurt Lindsey. He gets outed. Switches parties. Everyone loves him.

Only good part would be that Graham would do less damage as an honest, homosexual liberal than as a pretend republican. Can’t give as much cover to progressives with bipartisanship that way.

I have a relative in conservative eastern Kentucky who is an attorney. Outwardly conservative due to the political nature of where he resides but still very much so a closeted homosexual.

His live-in guy friends were always flamingly gay but his mother just says that no woman was good enough for him and that’s why he never married.

Ha!

I'm not going to comment on whether I think Graham is gay, one way or another. Or on his ideological leanings.

But Barney Frank is an incredible dirtball with a nasty/mean streak a mile long ... and it's well within his capacity and track-record to issue a non-denial like this just to stir up dissension against Graham.

Frank is simply not a reliable source on this, and unless/until it's confirmed from reputable sources I'm going to dismiss it as Frank being an a**hole.

I have no use for Lindsey Graham. He is an arrogant, insulting & simpering crackpot on immigration issues. I could absolutely destroy the man in a debate. (Note my public letter to him in 2006: Letter To Lindsey Graham.) Moreover, I suspect that Strom Thurmond is spinning in his grave over Lindsey's misuse of his Senate seat, if it is possible to spin in a casket.

But if there is any possibility that these rumors are false, I would distance myself from the subject. There are enough issues with his less than tepid defense of Conservative values, which we can focus on, without impugning his masculinity. I hesitated even to post this, lest by posting, I helped continue the attention on gossip, rather than specific actions in the Senate of the United States. When we focus on actual issues, we help educate the public. When we focus on gossip, we turn off much of the public.
