Bauer tells News 2 gay rumors are “silly”
Nice non-denial

http://www2.counton2.com/cbd/news/local/article/bauer_t... /

The fight between South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer and Gov. Mark Sanford took on a different tone after accusations that Sanford supporters are spreading rumors that Bauer is gay.

In an interview with News 2 on Friday, Bauer said “it’s a silly question.“

Republican State Senator Jake Knotts charged in a sent a letter to state legislators Wednesday that Sanford’s supporters are spreading the rumors.

Bauer denied to The State newspaper in June that he’s gay.

“I don’t think it’s a proper question,“ Bauer told News 2 on Friday. “I think it’s a little bit ridiculous and it’s sad that politics has gotten to that.“

Last week, Bauer called for Sanford’s resignation in the midst of a scandal over the Governor’s affair with an Argentine woman and an ethics investigation into his state-funded travel.

“I want to talk about real issues,“ Bauer said.

2. Man this is fun to watch
Meanwhile our schools suck - our people are out of work - either one of these two idiots would be more than willing to trash any program that might help to correct these wrongs. Its a pissing match between cluster fucks.

5. A changing demographic could be changing the attitude toward gays. Sanford
could be digging his own grave by using such a whisper campaign. It's ugly, and it's wrong headed to assume that most of the people really give a shit if a person is gay or not.

6. Who cares if Bauer is gay?
These days, he can get married in several states. He should take advantage of that and embrace his orientation. For pete's sake!

Holler loud about it and make sure God and everybody knows. We don't have jobs, but we have entertainment.

BTW, for those who don't know, Linda Ketner(an out lesbian) almost defeated a white, male incumbent in Congressional District 1. Her sexuality never came up.

She was the one who gave an interview to FireDogLake and outed Lindsey Graham, Andre Bauer, and Glenn McConnell (President Pro Tem of the Senate.) If they just shut up, people will be scandalized and talk about them while enjoying every minute.

They'll lose the snake handling, foot washing and speaking in tongues vote, but those people don't have much of a sense of humor.

Is our children learning???? You betcha! But it's not what people wanted on the curriculum.
