Alabama Congressman Robert Aderholt's Democratic challenger has suggested that Aderholt is secretly gay.

Daniel Boman, an Alabama state representative, made the suggestion in a Facebook post titled “Who would you vote for?”

“A republican who is a homosexual who has a voting record of voting AGAINST ALL homosexual legislation. Further, this particular homosexual congressman has ALL homosexuals working on his congressional staff,” was the first option.

Or, “A democrat who is a straight male, but has no voting record for or against homosexual legislation.”

Aderholt, who has two children with his wife Caroline, voted against repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” and passage of the gay-inclusive Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

Boman insisted that the post is merely hypothetical, then added: “The only way to remove the hypothetical is to call and ask [Aderholt].”

The Aderholt campaign responded by saying that Boman was being foolish: “When someone is making a fool of himself, we hate to interrupt.”

Boman has yet to report any campaign contributions with the Federal Elections Commission, while Aderholt has raised $1.2 million as of the end of last month.
