Not All Republicans Gay, Study Finds

WASHINGTON, DC- This week George Reker, founder of the Family Research Council, became the latest in a series of anti-gay Republicans embroiled in gay sex scandals when he was caught on vacation with a male prostitute he hired on This comes a little more than a month after anti-gay California state senator Roy Ashburn was arrested for drunk driving leaving a gay club.

The lengthy and ever-growing list of gay Republican scandals most famously has included Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) soliciting sex in an airport mensroom, National Association of Evangelicals leader Ted Haggard using crystal meth with a male prostitute, and Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) sexually harassing his teenage male congressional pages.

These scandals, along with ongoing speculation that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) may be a lesbian, could lead one to conclude that all Republicans are secretly gay. Many pundits believe this suspicion has rendered Democrats incapable of standing up to Republicans on any issue for fear of appearing homophobic.

A new study by the Factual American Research Trust however, suggests that as many as one in five anti-gay Republicans is not gay at all. While the group has not disclosed the specifics of their methodology, it insists that the results are conclusive.

The closed-door study was performed upon a random sampling of Republican politicians and members of groups like Focus on the Family and the Christian Coalition, with a support staff provided by and a large supply of lube.
