The brainiac Saxby Chambliss staffer who posted "All faggots must die" on the LGBT blog Joe.My.God — and who was subsequently tracked down by said blog's Web-saavy readers — has been shit-canned.

Chambliss' office released the following statement:

"The office of the Senate Sergeant at Arms has concluded its investigation, and I responded to that report immediately with the removal of a member of my staff. I commend the Sergeant at Arms, Terrance Gainer, and his staff for their very thorough and professional work.

"I have called Mr. Jervis, the blog's author, and apologized to him personally, and I am sorry for the hurt this incident has caused. Regardless of ones position on issues and policies, such comments are simply unacceptable, are not befitting those who work in the U.S. Senate, and I will not tolerate them from my staff."

Notice Chambliss didn't reveal the identity of the sacked staffer, nor the position he or she held in his office.
