The Drudge Report is sometimes the pulse of the right-wing, and now it's drafting headlines based on the Hillary Clinton lesbian rumor. Not much is beneath the standards of right-wing blogger Matt Drudge, even insinuating Hillary Clinton's aide is leaving her husband to shack up with the presidential nominee. Former New York congressman Anthony Weiner today found himself in the middle of another sexting scandal, even after the first one derailed his political career and embarassed his wife, powerful Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Among them were a photo Weiner took that showed his crotch and was taken while his young son slept nearby. Today, the day after the Post story ran, Abedin announced she's separating from her husband. Huma Chooses Hillary.

Sadly, "Hillary is a secret lesbian" rumors have been swirling for a while, and with days to go until the US elections, they've just been given a boost in the tabloids.
