GOP State Senator John Carona to Colleague Dan Patrick: I Heard You're Gay, But I Never Said It

I heard t'ings, Joey
When Republican state senators attack!!!! (Things get extremely passive-aggressive.)

Texas state senators Dan Patrick, Tomball's Own, and Dallas's John Carona got in a nasty e-mail fight first discovered by the Quorum Report.

QR is behind a paywall, but some subscribers have posted highlights of the fight that began when Patrick e-mailed colleagues saying Carona "has told people outside the Senate that Jan and I are separated and may get divorced."

Carona replied he had not done so, but upped the ante in his own e-mail: "Though I have heard rumors regarding your marital status and sexual preferences for a while now, at no time have I told anyone that you are either separated, divorced or gay."

What the -- who said anything about being gay?

We guess you have to give him credit for managing to mention the horrible (to GOP senators) thing that he has never mentioned. Well played, Carona.

Patrick e-mailed colleagues to demand an apology from Carona, who he said is "at a very dark place in his life for some reason."

The two may wind up facing each other for interim lieutenant governor if David Dewhurst gets elected to the Senate. We look forward to hearing all the rumors they've heard but haven't repeated.

From reading the comments on this blog, I now understand why liberals and gays DEMAND equality. You will never deserve it based on your character.

I think Patrick doth protest too much, we all know what this usually leads to.

Republicans only want to keep the gays down, because it keeps their own closeted sex life seeming dirty - and by extension, "hot." Does anyone think Dan Patrick is going to have a press conference to 'announce his deep love and admiration for his secret, monogamous partner of 20 years?' Hell, no. Just like the rest of the "'Family Values' Republicans, he's going to get caught consumating a brief, anonymous, tryst in a Livestock Show & Rodeo Port-a-Can.

I'm not sayin' he's gay or nuthin'. I'm just pointing out a pattern of behavior that seems to be inevitably, universally, shared by public figures who expouse similiar ideas to Sen. Patrick's.

It hasn't been mentioned, but there is the possibility that Dan Patrick is Michael Berry's lover. Perhaps, Berry dropped into TC's that one evening for tête-à-tête with his paramour?

Dan Patrick gay!?!?!  Well, just look at the track record of ultra-conservatives "talk show" hosts in Houston and elsewhere and ultra-conservative Republicans playing footsy in airport restrooms.  Yeah, I've heard he's gay for years now.
