Outing a Republican Senator

Michael Rogers at BlogActive, which bills itself as “Real Truth, Direct Action,” threatened last night to “out” a married Republican Senator as homosexual if he voted to confirm Judge Alito.

Tomorrow you will decide if your political position is worth more than doing what is right for others like you. For others like you, Mr. Senator, who engage in oral sex with other men. (Although, Mr. Senator, most of us don’t do in the bathrooms of Union Station!) Your fake marriage, by the way, will NOT protect you from the truth being told on this blog.

Lovely.

Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island was the only Republican to vote No.
