Secret Homo! Blind Item From The Illinois Family Institute

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute, which the Southern Poverty Law Center ranks as an anti-gay hate group, has issued this curious blind item about a local “moderate” GOP politician.

Now is the time for those running for public office in Illinois to come clean about the skeletons, or mistresses, or prostitutes, or congressional pages, or homosexual partners lurking in their closets. The past few years have been a veritable anti-treasure trove of political closet cleanings, and many Illinoisans are sick of them. Rumors have been swirling for years that a sometime-married elected Illinois representative who now seeks higher office is homosexual. Rumors continue to swirl that his sexual peccadillo and deceit have been aided and abetted by those who bask in his, I hope, dimming light, just as Mark Foley’s double life was aided and abetted by Denny Hastert. Those who aid and abet in the sexual immorality and deceit of public servants do neither the public nor political parties any favors.

The scumbags at the IFI are among the nation’s more outrageous Liars For Christ™, what with claiming that Carrie Prejean would have gone to jail under the Matthew Shepard Act, etc. I wonder why they’re pulling their punches here of all places?
