ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Senator Saxby Chambliss is looking into claims that a homosexual slur posted to a blog Tuesday may have come from a worker inside his office.
The slur was posted to an online article on Joe.My.God about the Senate's failure to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" law, which prevents gays from serving openly in the military. The blogs author got some help tracking the sender's IP address to Atlanta through a U-S Senate server.
Both Chambliss' office and Senator johnny Isakson's offices are located across the street from each other. Law enforcement warns you need to be careful what you post on blogs or social network sites. While there is freedom of speech, those freedoms are limited when it comes to threats and libelous statements.
"Anything they do that is determine to be a threat or determined to be libelous can come right back to them. It's extremely easy to through court orders and subpoenas and different legal documents to obtain all the information on who it was who sent it," said Captain Craig Dodd, Dougherty County Sheriff's Office.
The blogger used an offensive term to refer to homosexuals and claimed all must die. It was posted by a user going by the name Jimmy. Chambliss' office has said it won't tolerate any activity of the sort. Once they've determined if the claims are true, they'll take the appropriate steps.
