"All Faggots Must Die" Ctd

Yes, it's now confirmed that the online comment made in the wake of the collapse of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, came from Senator Saxby Chambliss's office. The particular person has yet to be found. Chambliss is on record as saying that openly gay soldiers would lead to "alcohol use, adultery, fraternization and body art," and that "the presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would very likely create an unacceptable risk to those high standards."

It will be interesting to see what the consequences are for the staffer who posted the comment.
