McCainHunt.nets a donation

by Jeremy Hooper

The McCain campaign may not be the one receiving the majority of gay support. However, there does seem to be one prominent gay-themed outfit that's helping to fill the coffers: ManHunt.net

Yes, that's right -- the owner of the gay hookup site, Jonathan Crutchley, has donated $2300 to the cause of putting John McCain in office. Proof, background, and Crutchley's explanation can be found at Towleroad:

McCain Takes $2300 Contribution from Owner of Gay Sex Site Manhunt [Towle]

It remains to be seen if this donation will draw more ire from gays ticked that Crutchley is supporting the GOP candidate, social conservatives pissed that McCain would accept the donation, or Gay.com owners pissed that it's not their site who's about to receive the free press. We'll keep you posted.

Your thoughts

This is nuts. This guy makes a fortune off the sex drives of gay and bi men all over the country, then has the gall to donate to a man hellbent on keeping GLBT people second-class citizens. And anyone that has lived through the last 8 years and still has the gall to suggest that Republicans are "better at national defense" should be laughed out of the room.

On the comment made by Hutchley 8/9/2008... He apparently feels the only job of POTUS is Commander-in-Chief and that McCain would be a 'better' one. Dips***, it's the CIC's role to Manage the MILITARY, not hop on a white horse with a sword and lead!

I've always thought those Manhunt addicts had low self-esteem. Ravenous sex drives overcompensating for deep wounds. So yeah, this makes perfect sense.

He's clearly a vers. business man working on his btm line. If gay men are allowed to marry the person of their choice then where will he get customers?

Just because gay men/women marry doesn't mean they don't look for sex else where. Geesh!

Good point anon, with such clear moral leaders as Larry Craig, David Vitter, Ted Haggard, Newt Gingrich, John McCain, Rudy Guiliani, and of course lets not forget the straight Dems of late, Chuck Schumer, and John Edwards. But I wouldn't use such a broad brush to paint the entirety of the straight community as cheating cretins.

My bad, Chuck Schumer isn't part of that cadre
