RWNJ media reporting Gannon story: outing other gays in WH

Dang, I'd not seen this collection of gossip regarding gay folks in the WH ANYWHERE. Leave it to the RWNJs to 'investigate' the gay blogs and compile the list of gossip and innuendo and publish it as 'news.'

Sounds like there is quite a list of rumored gay folks that JJGG may have been cozy with.

Homosexual press hot
to 'out' Bush figures
Gannon-gate leads to charges
about top Republican officials

Posted: February 21, 2005
1:00 a.m. Eastern

By Joseph Farah
2005 WorldNetDaily.com


WASHINGTON Disclosures that an alleged homosexual escort working for a pro-Republican website was granted access to the White House press room has led to efforts in the nation's homosexual press to "out" top-ranking Bush administration officials and GOP leaders based on uncorroborated, undocumented and unnamed sources.


Jeff Gannon

In the last week, reports in New York's Gay City News and 365Gay.com and other homosexual-friendly publications and blogs have made specific allegations about individuals based exclusively on unnamed sources and rumors and playing off the sensational revelations about Jeff Gannon by daylight a credentialed "reporter" covering the White House for two politically partisan websites, while allegedly moonlighting as a $200-an-hour male escort and purveyor of explicit websites like HotMilitaryStud.com and MilitaryEscorts.com. Those sites have since been removed from the Internet.


Jim Guckert

It turns out Jeff Gannon was a pseudonym and alter ego for Jim Guckert, the name under which Gannon allegedly posed for pictures on those sites and advertised his services. He resigned his position with Talon News and GOPUSA.com following the disclosures by bloggers.

The central target of the reports in the homosexual press is White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, a figure who regularly called on Gannon at press conferences. Most of the reports recycle one last week by Raw Story, published by John Byrne, 24, who claims to have worked as a local reporter for the Boston Globe and as a Washington bureau reporter for the McClatchy newspapers, and seems to specialize in "outing" Republican politicians.

In a report based on an unnamed source, Raw Story reported McClellan visited a homosexual bar March 19, 1995. Another anonymous source was quoted as saying McClellan regularly frequented Austin, Texas, "gay clubs." McClellan is an Austin native. His mother, Carolyn Keeton Strayhorn, former mayor of Austin is controller of the state of Texas and considered a contender for the governorship.

Raw Story "connects" Gannon and McClellan by citing a comment from the discredited reporter who said his only contact with the White House press secretary was to send him a card acknowledging his 2003 wedding.

"Outing" of reputedly closeted homosexuals, particularly those associated with the Republican Party or conservative politics, has become a favorite pastime of homosexual activists in recent years. Similarly, the "outing" of famous historical figures, from Abe Lincoln to Alexander the Great whether or not the allegation of homosexuality is actually true is a key activist tactic.

The unsubstantiated report in Raw Story has been picked up by numerous homosexual publications online and off. McClellan has not commented on the reports now swirling around the Internet and in offline homosexual papers.

Homosexual activist Wayne Besen, author of "Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth," writing in Virginia's Falls Church News-Press, goes even further than Raw Story.

"The vulgar scandal (involving Gannon) has revived Washington whispers that the supposedly anti-gay Republican Party is really nothing less than a gay affirmative action program," he writes. "Glance at whose (sic) running the GOP and it looks like a Harvey Fierstein cocktail party. A few months ago, activist Mike Rogers of RawStoryQ.com revealed that GOP National Field Director Dan Gurley is gay and sought unsafe sex online. Rogers also revealed that Ken Mehlman, chair of the Republican National Committee, is gay."

Discussions about Mehlman's sexual orientation have been popular on Democratic Party websites, too, including the official Democratic National Committee website.

Besen concluded his column: "The Bush administration is the gayest in memory, although they are all quivering in the closet, or is that gyrating on the Internet?"

According to Raw Story's Byrne, Gurley acknowledged in a phone interview last September that he is "gay." In response to a later story by Byrne last November, that Gurley "solicited unprotected sex and multiple sex partners in an online profile at Gay.com," Gurley reportedly conceded that he had a profile in his America Online screenname that same screenname as appeared in the Gay.com profile.

Attempts by WorldNetDaily to reach McClellan, Mehlman and Gurley for comment have so far proven unsuccessful.

Gannon, or Guckert, last week left his position as Washington bureau chief for Talon News, "because of the attention being paid to me."

Guckert was linked with online domain addresses suggestive of homosexual pornography. Guckert, a former resident of Wilmington, Del., told The (Wilmington) News Journal newspaper that he had registered the domain names for a client while he was working to set up a Web-hosting business.

McClellan said Guckert did not have a regular White House press pass but was cleared on a day-by-day basis to attend briefings and used his real name.

"He, like anyone else, showed that he was representing a news organization that published regularly and so he was cleared two years ago to receive daily passes just like many others are," McClellan said. "In this day and age, when you have a changing media, it's not an easy issue to decide, to try to pick and choose who is a journalist. It gets into the issue of advocacy journalism. Where do you draw the line? There are a number of people who cross that line in the briefing room."

He said he had been unaware of Guckert's affiliation with any sexually suggestive domain addresses.

Meanwhile, last night, CBS News attempted to connect Karl Rove to Guckert. In an online report by Dotty Lynch, senior political editor for CBS News, about Rove, she speculated about a link.

"The architect of the Bush victories in 2000 and 2004 came through the ranks of college Republicans with the late Lee Atwater, and their admitted and alleged dirty tricks are the legends many young political operatives dream of pulling off," she wrote. "So when Jeff Gannon, White House 'reporter' for Talon 'News,' was unmasked last week, the leap to a possible Rove connection was unavoidable. Gannon says that he met Rove only once, at a White House Christmas party, and Gannon is kind of small potatoes for Rove at this point in his career."

She continued: "But Rove's dominance of White House and Republican politics, Gannon's aggressively partisan work and the ease with which he got day passes for the White House press room the past two years make it hard to believe that he wasn't at least implicitly sanctioned by the 'boy genius.' Rove, who rarely gave on-the-record interviews to the MSM (mainstream media), had time to talk to GOPUSA, which owns Talon."

Gannon is now considering suing the bloggers, "liberal interest groups" and others for the "political assassination" that drove him from his reporting job, he tells Newsweek in its current edition.


And reader poll about the issue: (notice the lack of the WH making gays a pillar of moral policy thus opening the (back)door to the issue...)

What do you think about allegations of homosexuality in Bush administration?

It's a dirty smear by political opponents

It's an attack by political opponents with some basis in truth

Why is it that homosexuality only matters in one political party?

Republicans have opened themselves to this with careless appointments
After the Gannon affair, I'll believe anything

It's just a lot of unsubstantiated gossip

There are homosexuals everywhere who cares?

I thought we weren't supposed to care what people do in their bedrooms

The Bush administration is rife with perversion ( )

Hey, Andrew is hiding nothing thus he's not being a hypocrite about his sexuality and the 'morality' of it.

Remember, this WH was just re-elected on a Karl Rove anti-gay 'mandate.'

Bull****. Between the Dems waffling on their positions on gay marriage, Kerry's infamous 'who is, . . . . . . . . a lesbian' intonation, and this rash of queerbaiting over the Gannon thing, it's pretty clear that the left has every bit as much anti-gay proclivities as anyone else. They just try to hide it by projecting it on to others.

This is funny. If these were democrats, everything would be just fine, because they would just be expressing their lifestyle and being true to who they are...

According to Duhnees, homosexuals are only tolerated if you're a scum-sucking, bottom-feeding liberal...

BS. The Dems have tried to make the distinction between gay marriage and civil unions, the CONS trying to blur the issue to make it scarier and rally their base.

Kerry merely repeated what the girls own parents had proudly discussed about her in PUBLIC before. The poor outed girl is shopping a book now...

This is a monster of the WH/Rove making and now it's coming home to roost. The RWNJs in the party are arguing amongst themselves about how to handle the Gannon issue because it represents such a massive hypocritical festering boil.

Nice try.

This is not about my feelings on gays. I believe they should have the same rights as you or I or anyone else. PERIOD.

This is about the likes of JJGG, McClellan, or Mehlman going out and selling DUHbya's anti-gay agenda while at the same time partaking of a gay life in a closet somewhere.

And, it's about a so called RWNJ 'news' outlet publishing gossip OUTING these people as an exclusive on their FRONT PAGE and blaming 'the homosexual press' for telling the story to begin with. Hello, they are repeating it to people who would NEVER see it on a gay blog...

ask yourself why.

Denise, the only time something is legitimate to you is when you can use it against others. You've done the same thing with religion for years.
