The rumor mill is in overdrive. Bloggers are suggesting Lott may have had a relationship with a well know gay escort.
Look at the facts:
- Lott resigns without explanation.
- Gay escort denies a current relationship with Lott yet calls him by his first name in an email correspondence and sympathetically urges "no more scrutiny" for him:
"Trent is going through his fair share of scrutiny right now and I don’t want to add to it. All I can say at this point is no comment. It’s the professional thing for me to do. "
-- Benjamin Nicholas, gay escort
(Of course it's the 'professional thing' for a high priced male whore to do).
- Larry Flynt, who has promised bombshell GOP sex scandal exposes, has acknowledged Lott has been under his investigation:
"Senator Lott has been the target of an ongoing HUSTLER investigation for some time now, due to confidential information that we have received."Notice the rash of Republican resignations lately? Some say it's to avoid the new lobbying regulations. One has to wonder.
-- Larry Flynt
It seems to be a consistent pattern with the anti-gay conservative religious right-wingers. Like Larry Craig, voting against gay rights and then meeting gays in men's rooms for anonymous sex. These Republican homosexuals must remain in the closet. The hypocrisy is a hallmark of these individuals and a part of their pathological denial.
