Is Senator Lindsey Graham About to be "Outed"?

Mike Rogers, who may be the kindest human being in the entire blogosphere, has nonetheless struck terror in the hearts of closeted, gay-and-homophobic conservatives for years. As Gawker noted, "Rogers' previous outings of Ex-Rep. Mark Foley, Ex-Sen. Larry Craig and Ex-RNC chair Ken Mehlman, among others, once earned him the completely arbitrary title of 'most feared man on the Hill.' He keeps a list, and there are still many names on it."

Last Saturday, as South Carolina's Republican senator Lindsey Graham railed against the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell, "Mike offered the following hint on Twitter:

I wonder if Lindsey Graham knows I have pictures of a man who spent the night at his house. 

He later tweeted:

Just reached lawyer at home. Meeting set for Tues. on releasing pix of man who spent night at Lindsey Graham's.


Rogers is playing it cagey on his blog now, with a post offering a $250 reward for "anyone who can find a place where I said I was outing Lindsey Graham." But Rogers is a cagey guy, so we'll see.
