So The Porn Filter Explains Why Linda Ketner Didn’t Mention the Endorsement

Linda Ketner, running against Congressman Henry Brown down in South Carolina, apparently has a porn filter on her campaign fax machine.

At least that is what her staff told the South Carolina GOP when it called to verify a fax had been received. A staffer told Rob Godfrey of the SCGOP, “‘We have a porn filter on our fax machine so nothing like that would have gotten through.’ Then, she hung up.”

Now Ketner’s office denies there is a porn filter on the fax machine and says it was all a joke.

But maybe there really is one. Ketner, an open lesbian, received the endorsement of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund. But Ketner has never mentioned it and never thanked them.

In fact, on her campaign website and in her campaign literature she never mentions it, but she’s been happy to take LGBT money. So the porn filter must explain it. She just hadn’t received notice of the endorsement because the porn filter was blocking it.

So why now deny she has a filter? Maybe she realizes her voters are a bunch of licentious rabble rousers and admitting there was a porn filter would signal she’s a prude and they can’t vote for her.

Or maybe there really is no porn filter and her staff lied to Rob Godfrey and are also lying to the voters of SC-01 about her stance on gay marriage. After all, the good folks in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District are opposed to gay marriage. They may be okay with electing an open lesbian, but they don’t want her pushing her values off on them.

Knowing that she’s being endorsed and heavily funded by a group of people who want to force gay marriage on South Carolina might be why she’s keeping quiet about the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund endorsement. Oh, and because of her hypocrisy on dealing with the DCCC, her staff had to lie to Rob Godfrey too.
