Andy Martin Turns Campaign Issue Into Anti-Gay Issue
December 28, 2009
Illinois (ChattahBox) – In the next in a long line of politically incorrect and offensive moves from recent Republican politicians, Andy Martin has made a desperate bid to gain votes by accusing his opponent of being homosexual.
The Senate nominee has put forth a radio ad that calls Mark Kirk out, claiming that he should be forced to address some rumors circulating on the Internet (doubtlessly started by Martin) that Kirk is gay.
If this show of thinly veiled desperation or homophobia is not enough, he has claimed that this call-out has nothing to do with him potentially being gay, but is an issue of public trust, saying “people are entitled to their privacy, they are not entitled to live public lives in the closet.”
Evidently, to be a politician you need to come out and openly state whether or not you prefer banging the same gender, or the opposite gender. Potential public servants, please prepare your statements now!
I don’t know what is up with the Republican Party lately. They seem surprised when a homophobic/racist/sexist statement is caught and causes outrage.
Martin is just the next in a long line of asshattery seen from the Right in the last few years. They may want to look into fixing their image.
