Is Governor Mark Sanford Gay?

Why People Think Mark Sanford Is Gay

Sadly, when you create a veil of lies, sometimes people go overboard in overcompensating in the other direction to try to figure out the truth. "Conspiracy" theories have already started popping up on the Internet questioning, basically is Mark Sanford gay, and if so who is his lover. Is it some Argentina beach bum?

I suppose people might think this because of a notable history of family values preaching Christian politicians who turned out to be queer as a two dollar bill. (See Larry Craig, etc.) There was even a cunningly devised fake news story on Daily Kos claiming that the same gay guy who brought down Haggard was claiming that Sanford was in Colorado with him this weekend. Sorry Libs, it's not true.

What is already coming out is that he is not gay. He really was in Argentina, not Colorado. And what has just developed is that the Columbia, South Carolina newspaper The State has in their possession emails that passed between Sanford and his woman lover. When these are published tomorrow the gay rumors will finally be put to rest. At least he's not that hypocritical...

Plus, the fact that the Governor's wife, Jenny Sanford, is taking him back also points to his non-gayness. No woman is going to take back her husband after he's been with men. LOL. Maybe the new Equality Generation will break through that glass ceiling as they grow up, get married, and find out their husbands are homosexual.

The Governor's Wife... and Romney

Is this the scene that sparked the Governor's jealousy and pushed him all the way to Argentina for love?

Jenny Sanford Thrilled to be able to apply the "lessons of Solomon"

Religion is still the opiate of a large percentage of the masses, I guess. Or else Jenny Sanford is just trying to get the press heat off her family. In her statement released about her not gay husband Mark, she said she asked him to leave a couple weeks ago so they could work this out. He went to Argentina to be with his other woman, got caught, came back, and now she is ready to "apply the lessons of the wise Solomon" in making their holy marriage right again. How many chances does this guy get?

      Yeah right, he is the state governor and the state will release email that prooves he s not gay...

      What sounds gay to me is claiming that this is the smoking gun that will disproove the fact that he is gay .
