Fisrt, I'm gay. Second, I've been wondering aloud if Gannon/Guckert was gonna bring down a bunch of GOP closet cases with him. Is McLellan the first? 365Gay.com reports

Raw Story, which has outed other anti-gay Republicans, said its source "reserved comment on whether McClellan was actually gay, but said he was frequently seen at gay clubs." It says that another source confirmed McClellan was a regular at gay clubs. McClellan is an Austin native.
"He was often seen in gay clubs in Austin, Texas and was comfortable being there," the source told Raw Story. "He's been seen in places that normal people who are looking for heterosexual relationships are not seen alone." [...]
Raw story also says there is a link between McClellan and the man who posed as a journalist and had been accredited by the White House. It reports that it has found the man claiming to be Jeff Gannon had sent McClellan a wedding card when the Bush aide married.
Gannon, who wrote for two conservative web publications, was exposed last week as J.D. Guckert. The card to McClellan was apparently signed by Guckert.
McClellan also would regularly call on "Gannon" whenever the White House press corps would pummel him with hard questions. "Gannon" could always be counted on to ask a frivolous question.
Oh boy, this just gets deeper and deeper -- who's next? Maybe a nice, juicy, red-state, right-wing, fire and brimstone closet case Senator?
