[1] A Milwaukee weekly newspaper, the Shepherd Express has indicated that Kohl is gay, as have gay community leaders in that city, and repeated scuttlebut by insiders. His response to this label was reportedly, "I am not a gay man OR a lesbian." Thus the most we can say is possibly gay -- hence the "Matter of Dispute."
