The Atlantic's Marc Ambinder, while fielding questions about his recent revelation that ex-RNC chair and Bush campaign manager Ken Mehlman is gay, has dropped another interesting nugget: Mehlman claims to be a virgin.


People were suspicious of Mehlman's sexuality for years. Who knew? The people who "knew" are the people who Ken had sex with. But Ken says he had sex with no one, and told no one, because he didn't want to tell anyone, because he was uncomfortable with that part of his life.

And the race is on, gents! (No, but really, stay away from this guy.)
