GOP rivals trade 'homosexual' attacks

Bill McCollum received the endorsement of antiabortion leader John Stemberger. And moments later challenger Rick Scott criticized McCollum for his ties to "pro-homosexual rights" Rudy Giuliani, the former NYC mayor.

Here we go again.

And it only continues. McCollum supporters are returning fire, pointing to a Latino social networking website in which Scott invests called Quepasa.com. (We've written about Scott's connection to the site, and it's connection to Playboy Mexico before.) But the site also includes pages geared toward gays. See here and here.

If all this sounds familiar, it's because it is. (See, Florida Senate race, 2004.)

But this time Stemberger isn't leveling homosexual-supporting attacks at McCollum, as he did in the U.S. Senate race after endorsing rival Mel Martinez, who won the primary and the election.

At the time, Stemberger accused McCollum of "catering to the radical homosexual lobby" in a controversial flier distributed by the Martinez campaign. Martinez later denounced the attack.

Will McCollum (or Scott, for that matter) do the same this time? We'll see...

Just what the RPOF needs is a bald headed, big bucks fraud bigot running for Governor. I hope our Party has the courage and common sense to reject this nonesense - good grief. Don't we have real issues to discuss like the economy and oil on the beaches of the Panhandle!


Scott shouldn't be focused on Giuliani, he should be focused on McCollum's consultant who is married to his long-term male partner...


I can see the Republican debate now...."I hate homosexuals more"... "NO! I have homosexuals more"...."NO I hate them more"......and so on
