South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham — who is absolutely, positively not dating Ricky Martin — was hit with a new round of gay rumors this month when professional outer Mike Rogers began mumbling about releasing photos of the senator’s as-yet-unidentified male sleepover buddy. Does that explain why no potential Republican candidates are courting his favor? Generally candidate hopefuls shower cash on the veteran politics whose favor they court. And while Graham wasn’t up for re-election in 2010, only Sarah Palin threw cash his way (one thousand large), although she threw more (five K each) to new South Carolina Reps. Mick Mulvaney and Tim Scott. Suffice to say, otherwise Graham’s phone has most definitely not been ringing off the hook.
