After first disparaging her looks, Hillary Clinton's Republican opponent for the U.S. Senate has now questioned her sexuality. In an interview with a local Westchester County, N.Y., newspaper, John Spencer suggested the New York senator and Democratic star is a lesbian, The New York Times reports. A columnist for the paper, The Journal News, said that Spencer made the insinuation last week in a telephone interview in response to a question about whether he would attempt to portray Clinton as a liberal in two recent debates. "He said words to the effect of, 'Well, you know me, words slip out, but I won't call her a lesbian or anything,'" Phil Reisman, the columnist, told the Times. "He was definitely joking--he laughed after he said it." Spencer's camp did not deny the remark but offered a lukewarm apology. "As John Spencer said this afternoon, if he offended anyone, he apologizes," Rob Ryan, Spencer's spokesman, said. Spencer was already in hot water for comments he made before the first debate last week, in which he suggested that Clinton had benefited from "millions in surgery to make her pretty" and wondered "why Bill married her," according to the New York Daily News. Spencer has denied making both comments. (The Advocate)
