Is a Male Prostitution Scandal About To Blow Up In Lindsey Graham’s Face?

Published

This article first appeared on The Daily Boulder. Rumors about Sen. Lindsey Graham’s sexuality have been going around for a while. But last week, the hashtag #LadyGraham exploded on social media in response to a gay porn star threatening to out a “homophobic Republican senator” whom he calls “LG”  —the hashtag, along with the abbreviated form “Lady G,” purportedly refers to Graham’s nickname among male sex workers.

“There is a homophobic republican senator who is no better than Trump who keeps passing legislation that is damaging to the lgbt and minority communities. Every sex worker I know has been hired by this man. Wondering if enough of us spoke out if that could get him out of office?” Sean Harding wrote on Twitter last week. “EVERY major news network is in my inbox including high profile lawyers willing to take this case,” he added.

Harding also said he has “two male escorts willing to come forward,” to expose “LG.”

What followed has been a mixed bag of political commentary, wild speculation and downright trolling. And #LadyGraham was born.

For years, the gay rights movement encouraged Americans to come out of the closet. Outing politicians, especially those who hypocritically demonized LGBTQ people, was seen as a necessary part of the political project.

But in the age of social media, #LadyGraham could become a devastating scandal, not only for Sen. Graham, but for the entire Republican party.

Like a double-edged sword, the fury toward Graham over his embrace of President Trump and his policies, combined with a potential male prostitution scandal, could cost Graham his seat in the November election, and the Republican majority in the Senate at the same time.

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
