GOP Staff Member: “All Faggots Must Die”
September 22, 2010
US (ChattahBox Political News) – A homophobic comment left on a blog has been traced back to a staff member in the office of GOP Senator Saxby Chambliss by other users.
The comment was left on a blog post published by Joe.My.God, which was speaking about the filibuster by Republicans on the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ repeal. Posted under the name Jimmy, the comment said “All faggots must die,” a rather disgusting statement even by most homophobic standards.
Seeing that the IP address was from the government, there was an immediate wave of people trying to trace it, prompted by the cited post above. It was traced to the office of Chambliss, though there is a chance it could have come from the office of Sen. Johnny Isakson, another Republican in the same building.
But Newser is now reporting that it is believed that it did come from a staffer with Chambliss. With voting coming in November, already the Senator has released a statement condemning the idiot responsible.
“This office has not and will not tolerate any activity of the sort alleged. Once we have ascertained whether these claims are true, we will take the appropriate steps,” he said.
Looks like someone should be shaking right now…they are about to lose their job. Considering they were so stupid as to write the comment without realizing the IP could be traced, I am going to guess that they have left other clues that will lead to them being pinpointed in the office.
