In all the revelry over yesterday’s successful filibuster against overturning Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, somebody in Saxby Chambliss’ Atlanta office was on the gay politics blog Joe.My.God. and came up with a unique solution to the question of gays serving in the military: “All Faggots must die.” This person, calling himself “Jimmy,” posted this brilliant plan in the comments of a post on the failure of the cloture vote, and then the gays looked up his IP address, which told them it came from Saxby Chambliss’ office. Saxby Chambliss is now investigating who did this, because that man deserves a promotion.
U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss confirmed Tuesday that he investigating whether one of his staffers left a threatening slur on an Internet discussion of the right of gays and lesbians to serve openly in the U.S. military.
“We have seen the allegations and are moving quickly to understand the facts. This office has not and will not tolerate any activity of the sort alleged,” Chambliss spokeswoman Bronwyn Lance Chester said. “Once we have ascertained whether these claims are true, we will take the appropriate steps.”
That should be a fun investigation. “Raise your hand if you spend all your time on gay blogs writing slurs instead of doing your job.”
Chambliss’ office is located along I-75, near the Cobb Galleria. The office of U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson is in the same area, but on the opposite side of the interstate.
A spokeswoman for Isakson, who is up for re-election, said his staff quickly ascertained that the message did not originate with them.
