Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips has claimed that President Barack Obama might be secretly gay and addicted to drugs.

Phillips made the claim in an e-mail to supporters on Thursday, media watchdog RightWingWatch.org reported.

In the correspondence Phillips defended Mitt Romney from the Obama campaign's demand that he disclose his tax records.

“There are a lot of records that Americans should want to see from Barack Obama,” Phillips wrote.

“The important records that everyone should demand Obama release are his medical records. George Bush, John McCain, even John Kerry and Bill Clinton released voluminous medical records.”

“Obama by his own admission was a very heavy marijuana user in his youth. He has also admitted to using cocaine, though he denies using drugs such as heroin. He also says he was a significant drinker.”

“Why is this important?”

“Because these are all symptoms of addiction.”

“A man named Larry Sinclair claims that in 1999 he and Barack Obama had sex and then smoked crack cocaine. This is 1999, nine years before Obama would run for president.”
