Keyes Comments Over Gays Draw GOP Ire
By Bill Wheelhouse, IL Public Radio
Illinois U.S. Senate candidate Alan Keyes angered some fellow Republicans Wednesday over comments he made about gays.
He told a talk show that gays are "selfish hedonists" and that, because Dick Cheney's daughter is a lesbain, she also fits that title. Other Illinois Republicans immediately criticized the comment. So, too, did Keyes' opponent in November, Democrat Barack Obama.
Illinois Public Radio's Bill Wheelhouse prepared this report.
