Keyes silent on gay daughter rumor

CHICAGO, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Republican Illinois U.S. Senate candidate Alan Keyes, a conservative who opposes gay lifestyles, is refusing comment on an Internet rumor his daughter is gay.

The outspoken conservative talk show host declined to answer questions on whether his 19-year-old daughter had posted details of her homosexual relationship with another young woman on her Web blog.

Politics1, a political Web site, posted a story and a picture of Maya Keyes with a woman identified as her lesbian girlfriend. Keyes is staunchly anti-gay and told a New York radio talk show all gays were living in sin and were "selfish hedonists," including by definition Mary Cheney, the openly lesbian daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney.

The report said Maya Keyes' Web blog had been online for three years. Keyes has two sons and a daughter.

Keyes and his daughter attended a town-hall meeting at a church on Chicago's South Side Monday night, but neither responded to reporters questions, the Illinois Leader, a conservative Web site said.
