I am outraged but not surprised by J.L. King's latest misstatements.
In a recent interview with the Windy City Times and Identity in Chicago, Mr. King accused me of spreading false rumors about him. According to King, ' [ Keith ] even went so far as to say in a public statement that my wife was not my wife and that my children were paid actors and actresses.'
Wrong. The truth is I never said that, and I challenge Mr. King to produce a single newspaper article, document, recording, transcript or witness to prove that I did. He can't do it because it didn't happen. He made it up out of thin air.
Sadly, this is part of a predictable pattern of distortion and misrepresentation by Mr. King. For example, should we believe the J.L. King who bragged to the Windy City Times in June that he 'now has wonderful gay friends and goes to wonderful gay clubs'? Or should we believe the J.L. King who told the Chicago Sun-Times in May that he was not 'some sissy' and explained, 'I don't want to be a part of gay culture. I don't want to go to gay clubs and kick and scream'?
Before he attacks anyone else, Mr. King should get his own story straight.
