FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ANDY MARTIN ASKS “DOES JOHN MCCAIN PRACTICE “DON’T’ ASK, DON’T TELL” WHEN HE GETS QUESTIONS ABOUT MARK KIRK’S HOMOSEXUALITY?
MARTIN SAYS THAT IF MCCAIN REALLY BELIEVES WHAT HE SAYS, HE SHOULD “CUT KIRK LOOSE;” MCCAIN SHOULD STOP BEING A HYPOCRITICAL, TWO-FACED POLITICIAN ON HOMOSEXUAL ISSUES
ANDY LINKS TO THE EXPLOSIVE MARK KIRK “HOMOSEXUAL RUMOR” TAPE
Rather, today I am focused on the hypocrisy of Senator John McCain. McCain seeks to exclude gays from the military and then comes to
Last December 28th I started something of a national firestorm when I disclosed to the public that there were “rumors” that Congressman Mark Kirk was gay:
Lake County Republican Ray True suggested that Kirk was surrounded by a Praetorian Guard-like posse of homosexuals. You can still listen to the tape of the extraordinary program that formed the basis for my campaign advertising [Radio Archive,
In June, respected homosexual activist Mike Rogers confirmed my allegations and stated unequivocally that Kirk was a homosexual:
Later, Kirk’s former wife made ambiguous remarks about her former husband’s sexuality. So Jack Roeser was right, and my campaign commercials were based on solid research. Kirk was a proven liar.
Personally, I don’t care what people do in the privacy of their own home. But I passionately believe that public officials should be prepared to make their private lives public when public votes could be influenced by private lives. It is two-faced for public officials to seek publicity from privacy when it serves their political interests, and then seek “privacy please” when a politician is trying to cover his or her tracks.
But Kirk’s lies about his sexuality were only a minor precursor to the disclosure of Kirk’s myriad lies about his military service. Now we know that in addition to being the “Closeted Congressman,” Mark Kirk is the biggest liar in U.S. Navy history. Kirk has lied about every aspect of his military career.
Kirk claimed to have won medals that don’t exist. Kirk lied when he said he had “fought” in wars where he never served. Kirk lied when he said he came under fire in
How can John McCain proclaim his love of the military service and then back someone such as Kirk who has disgraced the Navy uniform by relentless lying about his imaginary accomplishments?
McCain claims he is coming back to
Politicians wonder why we hate them. John McCain’s Mark Kirk hypocrisy is a classic example of why Congress is held in contempt by the American people.
