As I reported last night, blogger Michael Rogers wrote a story on BlogActive accusing South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, an unmarried, conservative, anti-gay, Republican of being a down-low closet case.
Rogers states that he has interviewed numerous sources that he believes are credible and boasts of his 100% record of outing closeted gay politicians with anti-gay agendas. Two of Rogers' most notable targets are Colorado Sen. Larry Craig and Florida Congressmen Mark Foley. Both of the Republican anti-gays later resigned in disgrace when their same-sex shenanigans were made public.
Gov. Mark Sanford may be forced to resign under pressure from both Republicans and Democrats, due to the exposure several weeks ago of his extramarital Latin American affair and the associated travel expenses, allegedly paid for by SC taxpayers. If that happens, Bauer will step in to serve out the remainder of his term.
Even if Gov. Sanford doesn't resign, he is unlikely to run for re-election, leaving the door open for Bauer to launch his own campaign to lead the state.
Apparently a lot of bloggers picked up on the story; at least 17 of us according to WIS News 10 in Columbia, SC:
The report failed to mention one other aspect of the story. BlogActive's record on outing GOP homophobic hypocrites. One number, no letters: 100%
