It was DickArmy (R-TX) that made the 'fag' comment.
Trent Lott was the one who praised Strom Thurmond's overtly racist campaign of 1948. Robert Byrd (D-WV
)used a poor choice of words in an interview once as well. Conrad Burns (R-MT
) joked with a guy who also used the 'N' word as well.
All of these politicians managed to keep there jobs after such garbage.
