“I don’t think she’s so concerned about emails referring to her as secretly gay,” a source close to Hillary said. “That’s been out for years – her real fear is that the name of her lover would be made public!”
Apparently, Hillary made the major mistake of mixing private and public emails on her personal email account. “That’s clearly why she went to the extraordinary step of deleting everything,” the high-ranking source said. Abedin has long been rumored to be Hillary’s lesbian lover, and the deleted emails would reportedly confirm this.
The Hillary-Huma "whispers" existed well before 2013. Michael Musto of the Village Voice wrote about them in 2007, as did the London Times and Drudge. (You can read more about the history of the smear—which ties in with the conspiracy theory that Abedin is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood—in Gawker here.)
Glen Beck said:
“I’m telling you, Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular."
Beck wasn’t relying on his own tawdry imagination, but instead a decades-old rumor from political consultant Dick Morris, a former close friend of the Clintons.
A columnist for the conservative newspaper Washington Times published an op-ed claiming Bill and Hillary “have had a pact for decades. Their sexy, sexy pact is this: “He gets to fool around with women and she gets to fool around with women (plus the occasional man) … yes, she’s bisexual.”
A book called The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, And How Far She’ll Go To Become President by Edward Klein claims Hillary Clinton “wasn’t maternal,” “had no wifely instincts,” and “many of her closest friends were lesbians.”
Back in ’07, when Huma Abedin was mainly known as Clinton’s glamorous top aide, Village Voice gossip columnist (and openly gay) Michael Musto claimed “whisper campaigns” alleged that Clinton was trying to hide her lesbian lover “in plain sight” by hiring her on staff.
In March of 2013, Clinton released a PSA coming out in support of marriage equality. Not a minute later, American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios announced on her radio show that Clinton supported LGBT rights because she is gay.
In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail, Bill Clinton's long term mistress, Jennifer Flowers, claimed that the president repeatedly told her that his wife was “bisexual,” but he didn’t care, and Hillary Clinton “had eaten more pussy than he had.”
The president of the American Family Association, Bryan Fischer, told his “Focal Point” radio show, “The bottom line is that if Hillary Clinton becomes president in 2016, she will not only be our first female president, she could be our first lesbian president.”
