Joy Behar Asks: Isn't Janet Napolitano Gay? (VIDEO)

Monday night on her HLN show, Joy Behar hosted "Mad Men" actor Bryan Batt and columnist Dan Savage for a discussion on gay rights and the march in Washington over the weekend.

Behar mentioned that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appeared on "The View" earlier in the day, and that Napolitano explained why President Obama has "dragged his feet" on gay rights.

Savage mentioned that Napolitano had acted on behalf of immigrant widows while Congress works on repealing a law that penalizes them, but that she hasn't stepped up to protect gay rights.

"Isn't she gay?" Behar shot back.

"I've never slept with her," Savage wrote back.

"You know what, guys? Neither have I," Behar said.

Napolitano is unmarried and has said previously that she is not gay.
