Is a liberal Nevada gubernatorial candidate a former dominatrix who arranged gay liasons for George W. Bush?
I was pointed to the allegation that [Leola McConnell] was paid $15,000 to arrange sexual liaisons involving bisexual men for George W. Bush (then private citizen) and Victor Ashe (then a Tennessee State Senator) elsewhere on my friends list (it also has in some iterations included virtues-toter and confirmed gambling Addict William Bennett.) and I've got to admit that, while I originally scoffed at the idea, I found it fascinating.
Alas, it's probably not true,
Others have gone into it with more detail than I intend to, but my favorite compilation has to be at Canonfire, where they write:
Although the "fear of fudgepacking" factor gave W's popularity a huge boost among the Jesus voters (most of whom erroneously believe that he and Kerry had very different stances on the gay marriage issue), many rumors -- and a couple of pieces of evidence -- link our current prez to various claimed homosexual affairs. The best evidence can be found in the White House logs (supply your own pun here) which confirm that he-ho "journalist" Jeff Gannon stayed overnight in the White House on a number of occasions. Quite a few men work in that building, but -- so far as I know -- only one male regularly sleeps there.
Let's interject for a second. The oft-fallible "Wikipedia" notes on Gannon, "(White House) logs, listing entry and exit show at least 14 times when Gannon either failed to check in (and then checked out) or checked in and failed to check out. Some critics also noted that Gannon had over 20 visits on days with no scheduled press briefing. Others pointed out that briefings often occurred despite not being scheduled. Gannon/Guckert's White House visits totalled 196 times."
"The first set of times for each date is Guckert's login and logout. The second set is the briefing time. "No briefing" does not necessarily mean no briefing took place, only that none was scheduled by the White House press office."
"Missing details in the Secret Service logs lead some to speculate that Gannon stayed overnight in the White House on several occasions. Most suggested poor record-keeping was more likely to blame, as Guckert wasn't shown checking in one day and leaving another; he was often shown checking in repeatedly while never having checked out (or the converse)."
We must also keep in mind the fact that George W. Bush's roommate at Yale was Victor Ashe, who later became the mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee -- and who is now the American ambassador to Poland. During their Yale years, the two men were both male cheerleaders.
I never get tired of writing that last sentence.
Is Victor Ashe gay or bisexual, as so many have contended? Each reader must come to his or her own conclusions; for my part, I've heard the claim so often that I've mentally transferred it from the "possible" file to the "probable" category. It is said (but not documented) that Ashe was twice arrested for committing homosexual acts in public."
So, a lot of innuendo and unprovable allegations.
But funny? Oh yes.
