Bush-Cheney campaign ‘pressured newspapers’ to kill story suggesting Bush chair was gay

 

Two New York newspapers received calls from the Bush-Cheney campaign during the Republican National Convention urging them to kill a story suggesting that the campaign manager and public face of the campaign was gay, RAW STORY has learned.

 

Bush-Cheney campaign manager Ken Mehlman, who is now in the running to be chairman of the Republican Party, has repeatedly refused to answer questions about his sexuality in both public and private settings.

 

Steve Schmidt, deputy communications director for the Bush-Cheney campaign, also refused to deny that Mehlman was gay on the record in a telephone call with the activist weblog, blogACTIVE, which has been outing homophobic public officials, including California Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) and former Rep. Ed Schrock (R-Va.). Schmidt did not return to a call seeking comment today.

 

RAW STORY was party to an investigation of claims Mehlman was gay in the run-up to the election but no one was willing to go on the record.

 

Two of the sources told blogACTIVE that they had been pressured by the Republican Party to remain silent.

 

Mehlman, 37, who is single, spearheaded the Bush re-election campaign. The campaign used aggressively anti-gay tactics, including the mailing of a flyer in some states which suggested liberals would allow gay marriage and ban bibles. Many analysts believe Bush’s support for anti-gay marriage measures carried him to victory.

Ya know what would be even more fun? a website which outs homophobic public officials for hiring gay escorts.
