It was the tweet heard around South Carolina and leaked to state media that caused one congressional candidate to shut down her Twitter account.

Democratic candidate Deb Morrow, who is running against Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy for the 4th U.S. Congressional seat, closed her Morrow4Congress Twitter account after two tweets allegedly were sent calling Gowdy a homosexual.

According to two screen shots sent to Patch, one tweet ready “@TGowdySC is a Homo,” and a second Tweet that called Gowdy "the homo lover" of U.S. Sen. Lindsay Graham.
