Are closeted R congressmen more blackmailable than ever now?
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 04:03 AM by Philosoraptor
I bet there are some shady backroom blackmail deals going on to keep certain republican gay men closeted, lest they lose their careers. I've heard several republican callers on cspan suggest that a gay man in government is imminently blackmailable, and they may have a point.

If they were blackmailable before, they are even more so now. "Sign my legislation Mr. gay republican congressman or you are ruined", etc.

I wish I were a fly on the wall over there in those marble halls.

3. If the GOP doesn't blackmail them for sexual orientation,
I expect they have other things to blackmail them with. I've personally watched too many of those late night vote counts on CSpan where the GOP armtwists every holdout GOPer in sight.

4. Apparently...
all deals in Washington are done in the closet; if some so-called experts are to be believed.
