Lesbians for Ben Quayle? Lesbian News Web Site Completely Blows it On Coverage of Latest Poll Numbers

Congressional candidate Ben Quayle
As you probably know, there was some shocking news out of the District Three Congressional race earlier this week -- according to a new poll, Republican candidate Ben Quayle trails his Democratic opponent, Jon Hulburd, by two points, 46 to 44 percent.

If the poll, funded by a liberal Web site, is to be believed, it's big news because District Three is an overwhelmingly Republican district -- which Quayle was expected to take.

Someone may want to explain this to Bridgette P. LaVictorie at the lesbian news Web site LezGetReal.com because she seems to have had some trouble reading the headline from her own "source."

LezGetReal dubs itself as "the gay girl's view on the world." If that's the case, "the gay girl's view on the world" must be part of the bizarro world, not because it's a lesbian Web site, but because LaVictorie has Quayle leading Hulburd by two points The headline for Web site's latest story on the race reads: "Ben Quayle Leads Challenger by Only Two Points."

Really?


At first we thought, "Hey, maybe they just worded the headline wrong -- could happen to anyone."

Then we read the article, and it turns out LaVictorie just completely blew it and wrote an entire article about how Quayle's leading the race.

Here's an excerpt:

The predictions of doom and gloom for the Democrats may be a case of too many people following the Tea Party narrative. A poll out recently from PPP shows that Ben Quayle, son of former Vice President Dan Quayle, is leading his opponent Jon Hulburd by only two points (46% to 44%) in the Arizona 3rd district.

LezGetReal cites The Daily Beast as its source, and even provides a link.

However, the first sentence in the Daily Beast Story is: "Democratic outfit PPP shows Ben Quayle trailing Democratic opponent Jon Hulburd 46 percent to 44 percent in Arizona's 3rd District."

This means either LaVictorie didn't read the article she cites as the basis for entire story, or she's an idiot. Either way, she didn't read the actual poll results.

We know LezGetReal isn't the New York Times, but come on...

Sally... Your assessment of Hulburd is quite accurate. But Quayle the Younger comes from a long history of elitists. So now what ??? I'm up for suggestions.

There's a difference between being born into money and marrying the woman you happen to love who happens to be wealthy. Jon is an amazingly capable father and husband which is what you will hear if you ask ANYONE who knows him. The level of immaturity displayed by those attempting to trash Jon Hulburd on this site is amazing, I can't believe that someone would think it appropriate to post under Jon's daughter's name in an attempt to defame him.

If he really had said the things for which he was sued, the things which you claim denotes him as a gay basher, there would have been merit to the lawsuit that was filed against him, right? And since there was no merit to the lawsuit (it was dismissed out of hand) there is no basis in fact for assuming he said those things. I know that there's only one candidate that's endorsed by HRC in this race and it's the one that supposedly "hates gays". So who hates homosexuals more: the person who has the endorsement of the leading gay rights organization, or the person who thinks we need a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman?

If you think Ben Quayle earns his living you are fooling yourself. According to his financial disclosure statement his business, Tynwald Capital, has less than $50,000 in assets and cashflow, but somehow pays Ben a $100,000 salary. Those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones calling Hulburd a "non-working, inheritance living LOSER"

And you hated Adolf ???

If I were part of a gay girl web-site ( I'm a dude and it's none of your damned business who I chill with ) I would pray that pimply faced son-of-a-poor-speller never gets voted into any office. Ben's daddy is still joined in with the "Bilderberg Group" and the George New World Order Bush family, some of the most demonic human creatures I've ever done research on. In these people's version of a perfect world there is no room for any goddamned faggots. Period !!!

without a doubt we know in our community that hulburd is completely against homosexuality- the defamation lawsuit brought about was enough for me to know that jon has no respect for our community

Yes, and that's typical of Hulburd to be a complete HYPOCRITE. In public he's pro "gay marriage" but in private he defames gay employees at his country club just because they are gay and poor. It's just like how he says he a moderate but he supports liberal Nancy Pelosi for Speaker or that he's for border security but supports unions and their boycotts of Arizona. Hulburd is a HYPOCRITE.

This is Ms LaVictoire,

Thank you so much for noticing my mistake. I am dyslexic, though mildly so, and I have corrected my errors already. The offending headline has been corrected, as has the information in the text with a note stating that it has been corrected. Given the number of mistakes I run into with professional journalists, my making one or two is forgivable.

I know that you are upset that we finally banned you from posting on LGR because you kept wanting to spam your website onto ours. While your little pity fest has been going on, I should add, our site has been getting some pretty good traffic overall.

Take care and, please, next time, don't spam our site.

Pretty sure New Times never tried to post anything on LGR but if you check your article you spelled your own name wrong in your byline -- if you spell it the way you do in this comment. May want to fix that.

Ms. LaVictorie,

rich-Hulburd spreads vicious lies about gay women he deems lesser than him, but you, despite being the editor of a gay magazine, choose to ignore him because Hulburd is a fellow LIBERAL. That is poor journalism. Just because Jon Hulburd is a left-wing LIBERAL who loves Obama and Pelosi and supports unions that boycott Arizona, doesn't mean you should protect him. Hulburd is a racist and an elitist regardless if he's a LIBERAL. See article:

Hulburd = Obamacare. Supports unions that boycott SB-1070.

Hulburd = LIBERAL!!!!

Was he the Democrat? If so I voted for him. In this state one has to be pretty much to the right of Benito Mussolini to get on the ballot as Republican. At least it saves me doing a lot of homework.
