Listen to this article

A Lieutenant Sheriff from Douglas County, Colo., resigned yesterday after his superiors began an investigation into homophobic and racist comments he posted on a variety of local news sites.

On the subject of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’s repeal, Lt. Jeff Egnor wrote, “New miltary [sic] slogans: The few, the queer, the Marines! Butt Rangers lead the way! Be as gay as you can be! Aim for a high hard one, Air Force! Join the Navy, see naked men!”

He also proposed a new weapon for war, “the sissy slap,” and declared, “I hear the Army is forming a new division: The Rump Rangers!” Egnor concluded that lovely line with a smiley face, the charmer.
