Bill McCollum Is Outraged That Rick Scott Lets Homosexuals Use the Internet
The Republican primary for the governor's chair is quickly heading toward full-out insanity. Yesterday, billionaire "conservative outsider" Rick Scott attacked his rival, Attorney General Bill McCollum, for supporting "pro-homosexual" Rudy Giuliani. Now McCollum's campaign has struck back by pointing out that gays use a social networking site Scott had invested in.
Feeling a need to strike back at Scott's campaign for circulating the facts that McCollum supported Giuliani's presidential bid and that Giuliani happens to not totally hate homosexuals, McCollum's campaign has begun sending emails to powerful political journalists that a website Scott has invested in is used by homosexuals! The horror!
Two McCollum aides emailed me with this hot piece of oppo yesterday, describing Quepasa as a "gay dating site."
This doesn't seem terribly newsy, but I did ask both of the McCollum advisers what their candidate's position on this issue is. In particular, is he saying that -- as well as not being able to marry and adopt -- gays shouldn't even be permitted to date?
No response so far.
