Coughlin: Sorry About That Stuff About Goddard Being Gay. Let's Talk About Issues

Posted By on Wed, Oct 13, 2010 at 12:14 PM

Gov. Jan Brewer's right-hand man, Chuck Coughlin, says he's sorry about calling for the media to look into the possibility that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry Goddard is gay when fielding a question about whether Brewer is too ill to make it through a four-year term. Coughlin explains the gay-baiting episode was meta-criticism of political reporting in the blogosphere:

We have heard from some people who were offended by our blog post yesterday. For that, we apologize. Our purpose was to point out how ridiculous it has become that blogs and other irrelevant speculation are being used to create rumors that the media takes seriously.

Our posting of 20 year old rumors, on a blog — no less, was meant to be an example of the extreme nature of such speculation. Pointing out this ridiculousness should in no way insinuate or imply anything further. The rhetoric from the media, Terry Goddard, and his operatives is out of control and we hope that yesterday’s distraction will drive everyone back to the issues. We have removed the link from yesterday’s posting.
