After a Democratic effort to repeal the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy faltered in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, someone, possibly from Sen. Saxby Chambliss’ office in Cobb County, posted a blog message saying “All [gays] must die.”
Political Insider’s Jim Galloway reports the Republican senator’s office is now investigating the message on Joe.My.God., a blog dedicated to gay and lesbian issues. The office targeted is located off I-75, near the Cobb Galleria. Blog author Joseph Jervis of New York City used the Internet Protocol address attached to the comment to trace the slur to “the neighborhood” of Chambliss’ office in metro Atlanta.
The Democratic measure would have repealed the law banning gays from serving openly in the military.
