HUNGRY Mike Jones Mike Jones's ties to prostitution and crystal meth might have aliented mainstream gay organizations when he outed closeted evangelical Ted Haggard (despite the suggestion of Karl Rove himself that the Haggard scandal likely impacted the recent midterm elections in favor of the Dems), but that hasn't prevented Jones from becoming a cause celebre of the gay blogging community.
As Jones pointed out to Radar last week, gay activists from the Human Rights Campaign and The Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund haven't exactly been forthcoming in offering support—emotional or otherwise—to Jones, who is currently unemployed and mired in legal expenses. Enter the crusading bloggers! First came syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage, who implored readers to send Jones the "$10 you would have spent buying him drinks, if you ran into him in a bar" (Via PayPal's Send Money feature; Jones is searchable with ID—wait for it—email@example.com).
Then a flurry of e-mails landed in Radar's inbox, from locales ranging from Canada to Sweden, asking how to best get Jones back on his feet. A sampling follows after the jump.
