Blackmail or Bullshit?
— Ace

Otho, or as I call him, "Otto," notes this apparent blackmail attempt directed at a "Republican Senator" to influence his Alito vote.

Mr. Senator:

Tomorrow you will be faced with a vote that may have the longest aftereffects of any other you have cast in your Senate career.

Tomorrow you will decide if your political position is worth more than doing what is right for others like you. For others like you, Mr. Senator, who engage in oral sex with other men. (Although, Mr. Senator, most of us don't do in the bathrooms of Union Station!) Your fake marriage, by the way, will NOT protect you from the truth being told on this blog.

How does this blog decide who to report on? It's simple. We report on hypocrites. In this case, hypocrites who vote against the gay and lesbian community while engaging in gay sex themselves*.

When you cast that vote, Mr. Senator, represent your own...it's the least you could do.

*While votes on many matters are considered, votes "FOR" either the Alito nomination and the Federal Marriage Amendment are enough to qualify legislators for reporting on this site.

The blackmailer adds:

UPDATE: Some of you have asked if he will be outed tomorrow. No. The blog will report on this closeted Republican Senator between tomorrow and a time when it may most impact the reelection effort of the Senator. Just because the Democratic establishment has given up the fight for our Nation, doesn't mean this site will...

Well, isn't that convenient. A blackmail threat coming 1 or 3 years down the road.

My take? There's a gay rumor mill that says that almost everyone is gay. Somewhere there's a guy in a chatroom claiming he had sex with just about everyone. That's most of my reason for the skepticism about the Tom Cruise gay rumors -- on an old chatboard, some old gay guy was always saying he "knew" this or that celebrity was gay. It seemed based entirely on rumors from young and immature gay men seeking attention on the Internet.

But that doesn't mean it's not true, and of course there have been suggestions that a current Republican Senator was gay before.

I hope it's not true. Not because I care if there's a gay Republican Senator, but because -- if it's true -- then we have an accomplished man who's been reduced by fear of outing to random sexual encounters in bathrooms.

FWIW, I once shacked up with Senator Fred Thompson for a summer when I was working as a cabana boy/gay hustler.

Frickin' fruit. Although he did have fingers like a concert cellist.

3 If this agenda keeps rolling, how long before the blackmail letters turn the other way?

Mr. Senator
Your regular visits to hot underground dungeons won't keep fooling people any more. If you don't vote our way, we'll pull up your party dress and expose you for what you really are: a closet heterosexual who secretly prefers womangina to the real thing. Under all that makeup we know there lurks a straight man, and we're going to make sure everyone knows that you don't truly support the GLBQQT agenda.

Vote our way, "Miss" Senator, it's the least you can do.

6 Trying to influence the vote of a US Senator through blackmail. Isn't this just sort of illegal?

8 Gee Ace, I figured you would have fallen for someone with a nick name like "the hammer".

10 Concert cellists have callouses on their fingertips. Ick

So do guitarists, but usually just on the fingertips of one hand.

11 GEORGE MICHAEL: DID U MEAN LINCOLN CHAFEE'S BEDROOM?

HOW MANY OTHER (R) SENATORS HAVE REASON TO FREQUENT UNION STATION FOR A TRAIN HOME?

ONLY SANTORUM, AND SPECTOR.

On some of the websites linked by Otto, there were comments akin to the above.

13 It does raise the point that there are indeed non-moral, utilitarian reasons to not elect adulterous or practicing 'closeted' homosexual politicians for office, as they may be potential blackmail targets and national security risks.

16 They refer to themselves on that website as "Direct Action Tools".

At least they're candid about it.

17 Where is the long arm of the law. This is simple blackmail that is using the airways which makes it a federal crime. Since the FBI (according to the leftie nuts) are monitoring everyone, why has this bunch of slime balls not been arrested and put in some secret prison on the isle of nuts. The entire left wing is ready for the rubber room motel.

18 Scary similar to the movie Advise and Consent.

19 Mike Rogers has a history of outing Republicans (he's never outed Democrats who have voted for FMA and the like - it's purely partisan with him).

We've wrestled with him a few times on our blog, and it's salient to note the guy is more than a little batshit. However, if you ever delved into his personal life - and I mean the legal stuff, not the sex stuff - you'd find a man more to be pitied than anything.

20 Liberals dont want a proconstitutuion judge they want judges like the ones in the infamous KELO RULING

21 Having actually once used the men's bathroom at Union Station, I seriously doubt the veracity of this story.

It is a filthy, filthy, place that's usually very busy. I think a Senator could easily find a much cleaner and more discreet location to get a bj...especially one that would destroy his career if anyone found out about it.

22 I'm proconstitutional, I have a constitutional every morning. Their great!

23 I am devastated that my love for Senator ____ (R-Redsate) could lead to his undoing.

It is wrong that something so beautiful could end up so bad!

And BTW---What's wrong with the bathrooms at Union Station? They are nice! Marble floors and brass fixtures.

If one can't express love there, what hope is there for the USA?

24 Just because someone sucks a d___ every once in a while, does that make him gay?

Posted by: Red Jode at January 31, 2006 03:56 PM (qlIsS)

25 N...no...

Posted by: Mike at January 31, 2006 03:58 PM (JV5Qt)

26 Your comments I like, Red Jode.

I'm against outing anyone against his/her will for any purpose whatsoever.

27 Hi! Your publish rocks and can be a great study!
