There’s been a catfight going on this past week between openly gay GOP Presidential Candidate (Yes, there is one) and activist Fred Karger and National Organization for Marriage founder Maggie Gallagher started by an open letter that Karger sent to NOM asking Gallagher to reveal the whereabouts of her husband of 20 years, Raman Srivastav.

Wrote Karger:

I was on Thomas Roberts’ show MSNBC with the founder of the National Organization for Marriage, Maggie Gallagher. We were on MSNBC so she could try and defend the treasure trove of ‘confidential’ NOM documents that had just been uncovered as a result of the 2009 investigation that I got launched against NOM in Maine.

“Maggie and I were in separate studios although we met afterwards for this photo and a chance to visit. I asked Maggie if she was still living in New York, and she told me that she moved to Washington, DC nearly three years ago. What about her husband Roman Srivastav? She allegedly married this East Indian man 19 years ago after living as an unwed mother for 11 years. No one has ever seen Maggie with Raman. Wonder if they really did get married? If so, maybe so he could get a green card?

“For the past 15 years Maggie has written books, columns and talked to anyone who would listen about the necessity of kids having a mother and a father (even though she didn’t follow her own advice for over a decade). According to WikiAnswers only 9.3% of American women don’t wear a wedding ring, a pretty small number. Certainly this national champion of marriage whose twitter name is @MaggieMarriage would wear a wedding ring if she was really married.

“I first became suspicious when you spoke in Rhode Island two years ago at NOM’s ‘Celebrate Marriage & Family Day.’ If ever there was a day to appear with your husband that was it. I even scoured Google images, not one photo of you and Raman. NOM’s Brian Brown is all over Google. There are lots of photos of Brian with his wife and family.

“I smell a rat, Maggie. Put up, or Shut up. Let’s see your marriage license, Maggie. Better yet, let’s see your husband!”

Well!  Maggie Gallagher, who will talk about anything now EXCEPT NOM’s Race Baiting scandal replied to Karger almost immediately:

“We are still married and living together. He’s a very private person. They just make up all kind of stuff about me,” she said. It doesn’t really matter. I could be divorced and I still could not be for gay marriage. I don’t really see that it’s relevant. It is a fact — I am in fact married. I’ve only been married once. I am not about to get a divorce.”

Well today there was a new blog launched called “Where’s Raman” whose  description reads: “Maggie Gallagher is America’s loudest voice for marriage – but she’s formerly an unwed mother who has never been in seen in public with her mystery husband, Raman Srivastav. We’re trying to answer one pressing question: Where’s Raman?”

My guess? 

Raman’s in the gym having Karma Sutra gay sex with Rick Santorum because a gym would be the LAST place Moo-gie Gallagher would ever look for anyone.
