Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss fired an aide on Thursday over an anti-gay comment, reported.

The aide, whose name was not made public, is accused of commenting “All faggots must die” in a post about the Senate's failure to break a Republican filibuster on repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the 1993 law that bans gay troops from serving openly, on Joseph Jervis' popular gay blog Joe.My.God.

Senate Sergeant at Arms Terry Gainer investigated the incident at Jervis' request. Jervis discovered the comment originated near Chambliss' office in Atlanta by tracking the IP address of the comment's owner, a user named “Jimmy.”

Chambliss called the comment “unacceptable” and apologized to Jervis.

“I have called Mr. Jervis, the blog's author, and apologized to him personally, and I am sorry for the hurt this incident has caused,” Chambliss, a Republican opposed to gay rights, said. “Regardless of one's position on issues and policies, such comments are simply unacceptable, are not befitting those who work in the U.S. Senate, and I will not tolerate them from my staff.”
