Rep. Mark Kirk, R-In The Navy, candidate for Obama’s former Senate seat (Roland Burris who???) has been outed. Not only did he over-inflate his military service and awards, as a Navy Reservist he voted against repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Say buh-bye to your base and that office in the Senate office building now, Rep. Kirk. That ship has sailed
Tippa da hat to Pam’s House Blend.
BlogActive: Real Truth, Direct Action
It was early 2004 when I was at a social gathering on Capitol Hill. I’m guessing there were 35-40 people present, including the guy who brought me as his guest. While the party was no means a “gay” party, I’d guess that of the men at least 75% were overtly gay. The others present were either straight men or their women friends.
It was at that party that I met Mark Kirk. I was introduced to him by the person I came with and at the time did not realize he was a member of the House. As my friend walked away, Kirk asked me if the man who introduced us was “single or attached.” When I said that he had a partner, Kirk replied disappointingly, “oh, well.” At the end of that interaction I walked away and didn’t think much of it at the time.
Then Kirk became a hypocrite. Kirk voted against repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, despite his being a closeted gay man in the military. As a Commander in the Navy Reserves Kirk has voted to keep a policy that if he were investigated under he would be tossed.
Recently we learned that it’s not just his being a closeted gay man that Kirk lies about; he has a habit of making up awards supposedly given to him by the Navy.
Nice try, Mark. The gig is up.
