The Interwebs are once again abuzz with the latest scandal concerning a conservative, homophobic, southern politician accused of being a down-low nancy-boy.
Blogger Michael Rogers of BlogActive.com wrote Monday that he has confirmed that South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer is secretly gay.
"I am now able to confirm a rumor that has circulated in South Carolina for years. South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Bauer is a closeted anti-gay politician who stands to replace Mark Sanford should Sanford resign or be impeached (a real possibility as Sanford is caught in his own sex scandal.)
So, what is the deal with Bauer? I have confirmed and spoken to four individuals who I have no doubt are telling me the truth. These men have been hit on by Bauer, with one of them telling me it happened at least five times since Bauer's election in 2003. To a varying degree I have met with and believe the sources."
Rogers writes that when he interviewed one source who claimed he knew for a fact that Bauer is gay. When asked how he knew, the source replied, "Because I've had sex with him on two separate occasions.
Rogers claims a 100% track record that includes outing Sen. Larry Craig ten months before he was busted in an airport men's room soliciting an undercover cop for sex. He also blogged about disgraced Florida Congressmen Mark Foley's affinity for very young men a year and a half before Foley's indecent e-mails and text messages to underage congressional pages were made public. Rogers says he only targets closeted gays who are actively working against full equality for LGBT Americans.
