GOP Candidate Accused Of Possible....Gayness!

It is almost 2010 and America, the laughing stock of the western world on social issues, has just descended into the surreal.

As a variety of sources are now reporting, Andy Martin, seeking the GOP nomination for the Illinois Senate seat, has started running a political ad about the current frontrunner, Rep. Mark Kirk (pictured above), suggesting he might be....hold your breath folks...GAY!

According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
Martin’s source? Statements some conservative Republicans made on a radio show saying they have heard “rumors” that Kirk is gay.

“Illinois Republican leader Jack Roeser says there is a ‘solid rumor that Kirk is a homosexual,’ ” Martin says in the ad. “Roeser suggests that Kirk is part of a Republican Party homosexual club. Lake County Illinois Republican leader Ray True says Kirk has surrounded himself with homosexuals. Mark Kirk should tell Republican voters the truth.”

A homosexual club? That conjures up images of the Village People chanting Y-M-C-A.

Meanwhile. CBS News is reporting that the state GOP has put out a statement, officially condemning Martin for the attack:
"His statements today are consistent with his history of bizarre behavior and often times hate-filled speech, which has no place in the Illinois Republican Party," the statement said. "Mr. Martin will no longer be recognized as a legitimate Republican Candidate by the Illinois Republican Party."

Don't ask

An interesting aside...Kirk is a naval intelligence officer. If he comes out, the Obama administration will have to let him get booted out of the service.

Ah, the delicious irony.
