William Gheen, head of the conservative, anti-"amnesty," anti-illegal immigration group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), spoke at a Greenville, S.C. Tea Party rally this weekend and called for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to "come out of that log cabin closet."
According to Gheen, being gay is "a secret that Lindsey Graham has."
Gheen told the crowd:
ALIPAC has posted the video titled "US Senator Graham is Gay" on YouTube, where various news outlets have covered it. At one point, the video contained the tags "queer" and "fag," which Gheen told HuffPost were the result of a hacked YouTube account. When Gheen was informed of the keywords, he replaced them with less incendiary language.
The group defended itself Monday, and in fact doubled down on calls for Lindsay Graham to admit his homosexuality.
