SHOCK: If Anti-Gay Gov. Sanford Leaves Office, His Replacement Will Be an Anti-Gay Homo


Because this is how the universe works, the man who is set to take over for cheating anti-gay South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is, himself, a gay.

Lt. Governor Andre Bauer, who’s calling on his boss to resign after admitting to cheating on his wife, is a homo, claims Mike Rogers, the man behind Larry Craig and Mark Foley’s outings.


Is there reason to believe Rogers at his word? Yes. Just because he’s a one-man reporting machine doesn’t discount his accurate record of exposing anti-gay politicians who go gay behind closed doors. That, and Rogers has multiple sources confirming Bauer’s sexuality, including one fella who slept with him. Twice.

Why such a big deal? Because like Gov. Sanford, former state rep Bauer is also a raging religious conservative, and we’d be hard pressed to find any difference between Bauer’s beliefs and Sanford’s own voting record, which includes voting against civil unions and for limiting marriage to one man and one woman.

This is your future, Charlie Crist.

      I’d still like to have more from the horse’s mouth before labeling him a self-loathing closet case. Guilt by association is hard to make stick.

      Gayface overload.

      I like it when you can take one look at the supposed-homo and say, “Yeah, totally not surprised.”

      I actually read the news on Mike Rogers’ blog itself. Not sure I agree with outing this one though – there is no hard proof yet that this guy is a hypocritical anti-gay politician, save a couple of weak “traditional marriage” noises he made in the past (which, if you are from ruby red South Carolina, is a necessity for public office).

      Apart from that, this one looks 100% homo, and quite a nice daddy-type specimen too! My money is on him being a catcher. :-)

      The funniest part of all this is that Sanford, as nuts as he is, is the far better human being. Andre Bauer is a major asshole.

      Look at the way he’s hugging Craig. Sorry but straight southern men don’t hug other men and tenderly rest their heads on their shoulders.

      Mike Rogers wont even out Lindsey Graham (I know thats like outing Liberace). So why should I believe it when he says Bauer is a Mo??
      If Bauer is a homo then he is a butch type, cause he races cars around the streets of columbia like a teenager and he likes flying a plane and huntin.
      He’s pretty cute. Ive seen him in person. However I have been sent packing from SC and I dont get to see that crowd anymore…..thank god.

      If you read Rogers’ article, he doesn’t cite any anti-gay stuff the guy has done. He talks about his authorization of religious vanity plates and his supposed support for corporal punishment in schools.

      Now, I am all for outing homophobic anti-gay politicians, but I think it’s pretty clear that Mike jumped the shark years ago and is just outing Republicans in general because he doesn’t like their politics. And not even very well — when he “outed” the senior McCain campaign guy, everyone laughed because the guy was already out of the closet.

      I think he’s more likely to be bisexual than gay. There are millions of men who are like this. In fact, I’d say that 90% of all men are bisexual in their orientation.

      Having said that, what needs to be remembered is that a lot of these bisexual men don’t really like their same-sex side. They were taught by religion, their peers, and by society in general that male-male feelings and interactions are “unmanly”, “gross” and “against God’s will”.

      No wonder they all turn out anti-gay in their public policies. They’re reacting against their own selves.

      We have to be careful that we don’t label him “gay” in the entirety of his life. If we do, we’re missing the point. As I said before, it’s possible that he’s bisexual in terms of orientation. He may well find both men and women attractive.

      If this were to be the case, we need to state it. Don’t call him gay simply because it serves some cheap point-scoring purpose based on using “gay” as a perjorative term.

      In my encounters with several bisexual men, mostly married ones, not one of them liked the idea of kissing another male but the sexual component was okay. Three of the seven I met told me that they thought romance was strictly reserved for women, not with another male. How fucked up are they? I think its more about not accepting their gay side. Most aren’t out to their wives or families and in my view, are liars, cheats and are in sham marriages if they take their marriage vows seriously, marriage of course being the perfect cover to disguise the shame and self loathing. Some even vote against LGBT equality, but that’s nothing new, psychopathic behavior for sure.

      Whatever he chooses in the sack or whoever is none of my business unless he wants to discriminate against me or call me names. If he likes men sometimes or all the time, who can blame him, we’re alot of fun in bed. Variety is the spice of life you know.

      Robert in NYC,

      You’re probably dealing with bisexual men who are not into romantic-style affection – such as kissing – with men. It probably reminds them of their wives too much.

      Another point is that avoiding kissing prevents herpes-type cold sores which might otherwise get his wife thinking that he’s having a dalliance.

      Yes, I do agree that it is more difficult for a man to come out as bisexual to his wife than the other way around. Our society has produced a bisexual double standard wherein it is easier for a wife to come out as bisexual than for her husband. Women need to take some of the blame for this as well.

      Women are basic enablers of the bisexual double standard, and should be condemned for it.

      Just on my previous post, I should qualify it by saying that some women are enablers of the bisexual double standard, not all. Nevertheless, it is an interesting aspect of female sexuality which attempts to put women at an advantage to men.

      I have enough straight friends, who, if they had the least bit of attraction towards men would be out at the clubs trying to get laid every night rather than putting up with their girlfriends. Lets not be so hasty to excuse this closet cases self hatred by “Assuming” bisexuality. With these guys it usually goes “Bi Now, Gay Later”

      @Robert, NYC:

      I’ve never had any interest in bi-sexual or str8 men, but I do recall one bi-sexual lad that I met when I was in my 30s with whom I hung around for a couple of years. I was quite emotionally invested in him and would have liked for the relationship to become more than it was, but that was not to be.

      More often than not, it was he who would initiate the sexual encounters and he thought nothing of hopping into my bed with me and letting me have my way with him including bottoming for me. Kissing, however, was where he stopped-short…and I do recall the feelings of rejection I experience as a result of it.

      It made me feel like I was being used purely for sexual reasons. And,that was precisely what he was doing…with my permission, of course, in the silly hope that something more substantial might come of it.

      I once asked him about that, and he gave me the same answer. He felt that kissing and “all that romantic stuff”, was something to be reserved for a girlfriend.

      Despite the many miles that separate us, we have remained friends throughout the years and while he was married to a very nice woman, he recently informed me that they had separated and that a divorce seemed likely.

      I know not what the reasons for the separation were, but it is altogether possible that his bi-sexuality might have had a lot to do with it, since she was straight and probably got tired of having to share her husband with everyone else.

      That is not to say that my friend is wrong in any way, as I do not wish to judge him. I wish him nothing but happiness. It was simply a case of two people, one gay and one straight, who looked to him for a commitment that he simply was not capable of making.

      @ Brian Miller,

      He supported Mike Huckabee for president. Remember him? He’s the one who said, “It is now difficult to keep track of the vast array of publicly endorsed and institutionally supported aberrations—from homosexuality and pedophilia to sadomasochism and necrophilia.” He also referred to it as “aberrant” and “sinful”. He also wanted to put (gay) HIV/AIDs positive people in a concentration camp. Andre Bauer thought this guy was the best man for the job of President of the United States of America. Sounds pretty anti-gay and hypocritical to me.

      @jason: 90% of men are bisexual? NOT by any measure I’ve ever seen, read or heard of. I suggest you hit a straight bar and try picking up a few of 90% you suggest are “bi” – based on your numbers you’ll only get beat-up once for every 10 guys you hit on – pretty good odds – but also pretty inaccurate.

      As a young gay resident of South Carolina its a pretty well known fact that Andre Bauer and Thomas Ravenel are gay. They have been known to sport very good looking boys around Charleston. I have friends who have been approached.
