Controversies

Views on homosexuality

According to David Brock, in his 2002 book Blinded by the Right, Ingraham, while writing for The Dartmouth Review in the mid-1980s, once attended meetings of a gay student organization for the purpose of publicly outing them in the newspaper. Ingraham secretly taped a meeting of the Gay Students Association, then published the transcript, identifying students by name and calling them "sodomites".[citation needed] David Brock b. ...

Ingraham's comments followed a six-day visit to Iraq under the protection of U.S. forces,[1] during which she traveled on a Blackhawk helicopter, visited a hospital and several secured villages,[5] and spent nights in the Baghdad Green Zone. In order to tour an Iraqi orphanage, Ingraham left the safety of the Green Zone, donned body armor and traveled a route which abutted a large crater created "by a bomb that detonated the night before." During her visit Ingraham also interviewed the mayor of an Iraqi village, members of the Iraqi military, and an Iraqi businesswoman.

A transcript of Ingraham's statement as follows:[9]

INGRAHAM: Wait a second! So – (Laughter) you call 1 888 DEM VOTE – otherwise `Dim Bulb Vote' or `Dumb Vote' – and all you do is get transferred to music, then they cut you off. This is what I'm thinking. Tell me if you think I'm crazy. This is what I'm thinking. I think we all need to call 1 888 DEM VOTE all at the same time. And, by the way, when you call, when you call the number – and remember, it's `Dem Vote' not `Dumb Vote' – when you call the number, as we did, and we got transferred, transferred, then we just got hung up upon. You know, we're supposed to have these election teams within a matter of minutes, they're supposed to be coming to the polls. Can you imagine what those people look like? Halloween all over again. So if you have trouble with the poll, you're supposed to call, via 1 888 `Dumb Vote,' and this is what you get.
OPERATOR: Thank you for calling 1 888 DEM VOTE. To continue in English, press 1. Para continuar en español, oprima el dos.
INGRAHAM: Oh, and if you're Saddam Hussein, no problem. Vote absentee, in Maryland or Ohio.

At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on November 16, 2006, Senator Pat Leahy asked Wan Kim, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights division, whether his division would be investigating Ingraham for voter fraud.

Kim is the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice. ...


Leahy stated, "I hear about so many candidates and political parties trying to interfere or intimidate people so that they won’t vote. According to press accounts, right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham, urged listeners of her radio show to jam a phone line set up by Democrats to investigate alleged voter irregularities. She told her listeners, everybody call that voting line all at the same time and basically mark it inoperative. Is that something that your division investigates?"


Kim responded to Leahy's question by stating that Ingraham's actions sounded like a "voter fraud scheme," but that such an act would not fall under his jurisdiction, and would instead be under the Criminal Division's jurisdiction.[10]


No legal action was taken against Ingraham. Toll-free hotlines sponsored by political parties are private entities not affiliated with the Federal Election Commission.
