The thrust of the Daily Telegraph's complaint is that, after his civil partnership Bradshaw took on and claimed the full mortgage payments on their jointly owned home.
It is headlined "Ben Bradshaw: Mortgage bill paid on home part-owned by boyfriend"
Or husband, as those of us who think civil partnerships are to all intents and purposes 'gay marriage' might put it.
So is there a double standard, motivated by homophobia, behind the story and the presentation of it?
The Minister has said what he thinks to his 1797 close friends on Facebook.
Ben Bradshaw says if you doubt today's false smear of him by the Torygraph is homophobic, ask would they have written the same piece about the Camerons?
That seems to me a pretty good point.
If that is wrong, will the Telegraph be challenging other married MPs with similar arrangements?
Perhaps they could let us all know their response.
[UPDATE: The comment quoted above was Bradshaw's second Facebook/Twitter comment on the story: the first was "Ben Bradshaw says today's Telegraph smear is factually wrong and homophobic"]
