The Advocate asks Hillary 'Are you a lesbian?'
[UPDATE: The Advocate interview is up.]
Alrighty, then. Does that mean this is now a fair question to ask all of the candidates in both parties? Not that I care one way or the other, but if that's now the new standard, it may certainly give more than a few pols agita.
The Advocate, the nation's largest gay and lesbian news magazine — which has long shied away from reporting on gay and lesbians in the closet in Congress who vote against gay rights — has a question for Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY).
According to the NY Daily News, in an interview with the magazine's news and features editor Sean Kennedy to be published next week, the editor asks, “How do you respond to the occasional rumor that you're a lesbian?”
“People say a lot of things about me, so I really don't pay any attention to it,” Clinton remarked. “It's not true, but it is something that I have no control over. People will say what they want to say.”
BTW, anyone in the press up for asking Mitch McConnell or Lindsey Graham that question at a press conference, given all the rumors swirling out there about them? Now that's entertainment.
