Outing blogger Michael Rogers has
suggested he's about about to out South Carolina Senator Lindsey
Graham, a Republican, was furious over
the last-minute “jam” of legislation that repeals “Don't Ask,
Don't Tell,” the 17-year-old law that bans gay and bisexual troops
from serving openly.
“I am very disappointed such a major
policy change was jammed through the lame duck Congress without the
ability to offer one single amendment,” Graham said in a statement
after Congress approved repeal over the weekend.
The 55-year-old bachelor has been
denying gay rumors for years. Most recently he told the New York
Times: “Like maybe I'm having a clandestine affair with Ricky
Martin. I know it's really gonna upset a lot of gay men – I'm sure
hundreds of 'em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate bridge –
but I ain't available. I ain't gay. Sorry.”
A pair of tweets on Saturday from
Michael Rogers, who claims a perfect outing record, suggests Graham –
who continues to serve in the U.S. Air Force Reserves – might soon
be deflecting more questions about his sexuality.
“I wonder if Lindsey Graham knows I
have pictures of a man who spent the night at his house. pls RT,”
Rogers messaged his followers.
About half an hour later, he added:
“Just reached lawyer at home. Meeting set for Tues. on releasing
pix of man who spent night at Lindsey Graham's.”
