GOPers in Florida Gov. race are fighting over a possible gay dating site

In Florida, Republicans are engaging in a bitter intra-party cat fight for the GOP’s gubernatorial nomination. And, whenever the GOPers are fighting amongst themselves, they often manage to bring it back to the gays. But, this Florida fight between Bill McCollum and Rick Scott is bizarre even by GOP standards:

Now McCollum’s campaign is pointing out that Scott is an investor in a social networking site that, among other things, features the profiles of gay men. bills itself as “one of the world’s largest trilingual Latino Social Networks online” serving users in the U.S., Mexico and Latin America. It features content on entertainment, sports and music.

But as McCollum’s campaign ties Scott to the site, it points out that gays also use the site for dating.

Kristy Campbell, communications director for McCollum, acknowledged to CNN the campaign is pointing out Scott’s ties to But Campbell said it was in response to the e-mail from Scott’s campaign.

“The hypocrisy and bizarre desperate attacks against Attorney General McCollum by Rick Scott in this campaign know no bounds,” Campbell told CNN.
