    Chambliss' office says it was source of homosexual slur | ajc.com

    "Tuesday, a poster identifying himself as "Jimmy" wrote "All [gays] must die" on Joe.My.God., a blog dedicated to gay and lesbian issues -- just as Republican Chambliss and other senators were debating a Democratic proposal to repeal the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. The proposal failed."

    WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss' office has determined it was indeed the source of a highly publicized homosexual-bashing slur on an Internet site.

    But in a statement, Chambliss' office said it has not discovered exactly who was behind the slur, and has turned the matter over to the Senate sergeant at arms. The office employs 42 people.

    "The [sergeant at arms] has worked side by side with our personnel to determine whether the comment in question emanated from our office. That appears to be the case," an unsigned statement from Chambliss' press office read.

    "There has not been a determination as to who posted the comment," the statement read. "That part of the review is ongoing, and is now in the hands of the Senate sergeant at arms.”

    Spokeswomen for Chambliss did not return a reporter's phone calls or e-mails seeking more details.

    Tuesday, a poster identifying himself as "Jimmy" wrote "All [gays] must die" on Joe.My.God., a blog dedicated to gay and lesbian issues -- just as Republican Chambliss and other senators were debating a Democratic proposal to repeal the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. The proposal failed.

    Every side has whack jobs. It wasnt that long ago we had a union leader sending out emails to pray for a Governors death.

    Who'd a thunk it? Homophobic bullshit from a Southern GOP assholes' office on the day DADT was voted on.

    And.......the fucked up thing is, the vote DIDN'T rescind DADT.

    A Union leader is not a US Senator's office.

    Terrible analogy. Not at all relevant.

    Chambliss obviously did not write it. He has referred the matter for investigation. What would you have the man do, fire his entire staff?

    Agreed. It's not Chambliss's fault it happened. If he finds out who the culprit is and gets rid of him that's all he can do.

    God forbid anyone respond to inappropriate office behavior with anything less than more inappropriate office behavior.
