McCain Slams CNN Over Gay General

By    |   Friday, 30 November 2007 12:07 PM EST

Presidential hopeful John McCain lambasted CNN for allowing a gay retired general allied with the Hillary Clinton campaign to question candidates during Wednesday’s Republican debate.

“I think that should have been made public if this individual was a member of another — any other campaign, then people would, obviously, have a better way of judging the quality of the question,” an angry McCain declared on Thursday.

During the debate televised by CNN, retired Gen. Keith Kerr — a national co-chair for a Clinton veterans group — asked the GOP candidates: “Why do you think that American men and women in uniform are not professional enough to serve with gays and lesbians?”

Candidates McCain, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Duncan Hunter were asked to respond, and the four said they basically support the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gays.

Kerr’s links to the Clinton campaign were not mentioned during the debate.

“I think that should have been revealed,” McCain said in remarks reported by the New York Post.

CNN vice president and executive producer David Bohrman apologized for the foul-up, saying: “CNN would not have used the general’s question had we known that he was connected to any presidential candidate.”
