Philly politician outed -- as straight

In the city of brotherly love, Democratic State Rep Babette Josephs outed her primary opponent Gregg Kravitz as not being bisexual, but straight.

"I outed him as a straight person," Josephs said during a fund-raiser at the Black Sheep Pub & Restaurant, as some in the audience gasped or laughed, "and now he goes around telling people, quote, 'I swing both ways.' That's quite a respectful way to talk about sexuality. This guy's a gem."

Kravitz, 29, said that he is sexually attracted to both men and women and called Josephs' comments offensive.

"That kind of taunting is going to make it more difficult for closeted members of the LGBT community to be comfortable with themselves," Kravitz said. "It's damaging."

In case you didn't pick up on it, this is another red-on-red situation. Score!
