Senator Lindsey Graham to NY Times: "I ain't gay"

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Senator Lindsey Graham addressed rumors about being a homosexual in an interview with the New York Times.

According to the Times, Graham reportedly smirked and said: "I know it's really gonna upset a lot of gay men."  "I'm sure hundreds of 'em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge - but I ain't available.  I ain't gay.  Sorry."

Graham was targeted earlier this year at a tea party rally when a speaker said he supported a program out of fear Democrats would expose his homosexuality.

The NY Times article focuses on Graham's bi-partisan approach to the nation's controversial issues.
