Which politicians do you think are closeted?

It seems like there is an endless supply of closeted gay politicians. There have to be loads of them on the brink of scandal at any given moment. Who do you think is currently closeted, and why? Place your bets here.

Do a Google search: "DataLounge" + "closeted gay politicians" + "Republicans." You'll find dozens of quite informative threads people have posted over the years. Feel free to bump one of them.

Barney Frank.

OP, just post a list of any Republican who's vehemently voted against gay rights and made it to be a dominant national issue. You'll have your answer right there.

Romney. Always thought he acted like a prissy queen during the debates, and when giving speeches.

Bush I had a longtime mistress, Jennifer Fitzgerald, whom Hillary brought up when Gennifer Flowers was splashed all over the news. She was kind butch, though, so who knows.

Adrian Smith, Republican, Nebraska 3rd District.

by Anonymousreply 2511/14/2012

As noted here recently, U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Alabama) was outed by his Democratic opponent on Facebook, but his gayness has long been an open secret on the Hill and in local political circles. (My partner used to know a Republican operative who went to school with him at the University of North Alabama and who claimed to have walked in on him getting double-teamed by two black guys in his dorm room.)

He was handily reelected.

Haley Barbour.

Former governor of Mississippi.

Pardoned men who worked in the Governor's mansion for the most part back when his term was almost over. They all committed unmerciful crimes, but somehow Haley felt compelled to pardon them. I think there is a reason behind that which could very well be based in something sexual in scope.

He was outed on the Datalounge way before that.

This guy is a real shit stain - he sponsored antigay legislation when he was in the Nebraska legislature.

Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, definitely Lindsey Graham, and Tiny Dancer Joe Leiberman. Nist if the actively homophobic ones, and the ones who are all religious and rigid. Bet Rick Santorum has gay leanings. I'm telling you the ones who give evidence of repressed behavior are usually the closeted ones.

Josh Mandel. I live in his neighborhood , I see him around, he used to go to my synagogue. I am telling you this is one screwed up, inthe closet gay man. I feel sorry for his rich Ratner wife. There are no signs of love and affection between these two.. Even on the campaign trail, totally unable to gaze up at him In the adoring republican wife of politician way.

I have it on good authority that Charlie Crist is.

by Anonymousreply 6405/25/2013

I know a woman who had a romantic/sexual relationship with John Kerry in between his first and second wives.

No idea about Patrick Kennedy but there must be some gay Kennedys.
