Pretty sick

“I just deleted it,” says an official at a Washington-based social-conservative organization. “It looked like junk e-mail.”
“It” is what has become known as The List, a document naming allegedly gay Republican congressional staffers that has been e-mailed to a number of conservative groups in the last few days. According to a report by David Corn, a writer for the left-wing magazine the Nation, anti-Republican “gay politicos” sent the list to several social-conservative organizations — among them Focus on the Family, the Family Research Council, and the Southern Baptist Convention — in hopes of setting off “a civil war within the GOP, to turn the anti-gay social cons against the GOP’s Velvet Mafia.”
