After Idaho's U.S. Sen. Larry Craig got caught in an airport bathroom sting, everyone was looking for the next stylish senatorial shoe to drop. We penned a piece that noted the rumors swirling around happy bachelor Lindsey Graham, but we ultimately talked more about the implications of a gay politician in the Palmetto State. In fact, we noted early in the piece that Graham denied that he was gay. A full four years later, "Is Lindsey Graham Gay" is consistently one of the most popular stories at charlestoncitypaper.com. On any given weekend that finds the senator on the Sunday talk show circuit, we'll see a sharp spike in traffic to the story, including several readers who found us by Googling some iteration of "Lindsey Graham gay."
