:::: UPDATE ::::
6:30 p.m. -- Kyle Wood has admitted he made the following story up. Click here for an update.

Last week, a strange alleged hate crime went down in Madison: A full-time volunteer for a GOP congressional candidate says he was attacked at home by a man who was apparently upset an openly gay man would work on behalf of a Republican.

The victim, 29-year-old Kyle Wood -- staffer for 2nd Congressional District candidate Chad Lee -- says his attacker told him, "You should have kept your faggot mouth shut."

Wood says he was getting ready for work early last Wednesday when a man knocked on the door. When he opened it, the assailant suddenly wrapped a ligature around his neck, slammed his head into a nearby mirror, and then dropped the "should have kept your mouth shut" line.

More from the Daily Caller:
"He then kidney-punched me, while at the same time saying I was 'warned,' and continued to beat me," he added.

Wood said his attacker's reference to a warning likely pointed to graffiti he found painted on his car [the week before]. The vandalism included the phrases "house trained republican faggot," "traitor," and "ur like a jew 4 hitler."

Those slurs, he explained, were references to him being a gay Republican working to help Lee, a straight GOP candidate, defeat the openly gay Democrat Mark Pocan.
Here's the police report:

The Blaze

The Daily Caller, a conservative news site co-founded by former Fox News commenter Tucker Carlson, quotes the leader of a gay conservative group as saying the assault reflects the "hate and vitriol directed towards a gay conservative from gay liberals," despite the fact there's no strong evidence a gay liberal was actually in any way responsible for the attack, which is still being investigated by police.

Lee's injuries were characterized by police as "minor." Assault aside, he told the Daily Caller he "will not be bullied into voting for a gay man simply because I am gay."

Guess the wingnuts would rather skip the pesky voir dire and run with a story that suits their agenda over failing to lock step.

You really should vet your stories. This guy recanted his story. It's a lie. Google it and drop the lies. Republicans don't stand up for anybody but rich white closet cases. Get it straight.

What the fuck?  What is wrong with you people?  You are attacking your own kind?   I can't believe he came to his house and beat him.  HE BEAT HIM at HIS HOUSE!  LET THIS SINK IN!  He beat the man AT HIS HOUSE, after RINGING THE DOOR BELL!  Does anyone understand HOW WRONG this is?  Well, hopefully the police have arrested this monster, yes monster, and put him in jail so he can't hurt anyone else.  I mean really, how far will he go to make a point?  This seems almost like an act of TERRORISM!!!!    Watch out Madison WI, perhaps you should raise your  terror alert to RED, since people think they can go along and beat people at their houses, because they are so entitled.  And we wonder why, why our kids are being bullied like they are.  They are watching grown ups, and here is a prime example!!  This makes me sick!

This guy is obviously faking.  Remember the McCain supporter who said a group of black guys carved a B on her face because they were Obama supporters?   This is the same thing.  This guy is a liar and a fraud.  Crazy people do it all the time.  If you are gay and work for a Republican you are a crazy person.   Crazy people fake crimes against themselves for sympathy.    This guy is so obviously lying.

About par for the course with liberals/rabid Dems. Same holds for ethnic minorities who step off the Dem plantation.  Party of tolerance my ass.

 @MicheleBachmann Thank you for once again showing the compassionate, and tolerant left in all it's glory.

Anyone who doesn't agree with you or your master Soros must be maligned and marginalized.

 @CinBlueland Fuck off racist piece of shit.  You don't get to pretend to have the high ground one day when you make racist, homophobic comments every other day you bigot piece of shit.

 @CinBlueland Crazy people making up crimes happens all the time dipshit.  Both sides do it because there are all sorts of crazy people.   The media shouldn't report on stories like that because no one can confirm his story.   This didn't happen on video or in public.   Note the police said he had "minor" injuries.  I cited a fact of an extremely similar incident from 2008.  I remember the media blowing that story up too.  Especially right wing idiot liars like Tucker Carlson.   Republicans love to pretend to be the victims.   We will see if this story is legit.  How many times have Dems violently attacked Republicans in their homes?   Not really a common news story.  So we will see if this is the first time it ever happened.  I would think if someone was crazy enough to go to someone's house to assault them, they would be prepared to do more than minor injuries.    Only an idiot (you and Tucker Carlson and Rupar) wouldn't be highly suspect of this crazy person's story.   I note the police didn't release a sketch or a warning to other gay Republicans.   Why won't the police release this guy's sketch?  How come there was no witnesses?  I know in my neighborhood lots of people would be out at 8am.   I think that is considered prime going to work and school time.  Only an idiot like you would be so easily duped.

 @CinBlueland They are all true about you.  You should be more proud of your true beliefs instead of pretending you care about civility you fraud.
