Tell Sen. Saxby Chambliss' Office to Apologize for "Faggots Must Die" Remark
This petition made change with 401 supporters!
After every single Republican voted to filibuster and prevent "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" legislation from moving forward in the U.S. Senate, a staff person from Sen. Saxby Chambliss' Georgia office took to the gay blogosphere, and left a comment on popular blog Joe.My.God. That comment, left under the name "Jimmy," went a little something like this:
"All Faggots Must Die."
Joe Jervis, who writes the Joe.My.God blog, touched base with his readership and together folks were able to sleuth out that the IP address of the commenter belonged to someone inside Sen. Chambliss' Georgia office. Three cheers for gay people in the IT field!
But a huge, jaw-dropping look of awe and disgust for Sen. Saxby Chambliss. This type of rhetoric is unacceptable in any form, let alone coming from someone employed by the federal government.
Email Sen. Saxby Chambliss' office right now, letting Sen. Chambliss know that he must address this incident, and that it's his job to create a culture within his office where no one feels like they can get away with expressing a "gays must die" sentiment.
