Joseph McCarthy, 1950: “”I have here in my hand a list of 205 people that were known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party…”
David Corn, 2006: “There’s a list going around. Those disseminating it call it “The List.” It’s a roster of top-level Republican congressional aides who are gay….I have a copy…”
Corn goes on to say proudly he’s not going to publish his lift. McCarthy didn’t publish his “list” either.
