David Corn, who said he would never publish the names on “The List”, seems to be outing by dribbles now. He has already named a name, proving he is a hypocrite.
But in a stab to the heart of every gay and lesbian who gives a dime to the shameless money-grubbers, Corn drops this bombshell from a post earlier today:
I’ve received several requests for The List (see below), but I haven’t passed it on. And a few emails have come in with the same sort of query: is So-and-So who works for Senator So-and-So on the list? I haven’t answered such questions. But a reporter told me that The List is in other hands. He was told by an official at the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights lobby, that it had a copy. The HRC official refused to talk about it, though.
According to our critics here, the liberal party line is that it is Republicans outing gay Republican staffers on Capitol Hill. But as of now there have only been three entities claiming to actually have “The List.”
Liberal Gay Outing Activists Who Have Been Compiling The List For Years Liberal columnist David Corn Liberal gay rights organization Human Rights Campaign
I don’t see a Republican among them. The only Republicans talking about the list are terrified GOP staffers, again according to Corn…
A source sent me the following note:
Your blog [about The List] caused quite a stir, David — a lobbyist…had a couple of terrified calls from gay GOP Hill staffers wondering if they were on the list you mentioned…and whether there was going to be a right-wing lynch mob coming for them.
Well,I’ve been sent an updated version of The List. I’m not leading any lynch mob (obviously).
You most certainly are, David. You are stoking the fires of this witchhunt. How dare you claim innocence?
But the big story here folks is that the Gay McCarthyism is being stoked by none other than the largest GAY RIGHTS organization in America — the Human Rights Campaign.
Somebody has some explaining to do. I thought the HRC was supposed to PROTECT our rights?
**UPDATE** – The Hypocrite Rights Campaign sheds crocodile tears over gays being demonized while at the same time holding in their cold hands the infamous “List” being used to rout out gay staffers that don’t tout the liberal party line. Outrageous. I’m not sure how Joe Solmonese sleeps at night.
