SFGate: Politics Blog : Ashburn: "I am gay."
So it happened again. Another staunchly anti-gay, pro-"family values" (whatever the fuck that means this week) Republican was outed as gay. This time, it was Roy Ashburn. It started with him getting pulled over for a DUI after leaving a gay bar with an unidentified male passenger. After a few days of more and more reports flooding in that he frequented gay bars all over town, he finally came out and just admitted that he's gay. At least this one wasn't living in a sham marriage.
This happens WAY too often. Here's my deal now - if you present yourself as anti gay-rights, I'm just gonna assume you're gay now. Statistically speaking, it seems I'm more likely to be right. The more vehemently someone opposes gay marriage, or repealing DADT, the more they might as well just be dancing in the Castro Street Pride Parade in purple leather chaps.
Wouldn't you know it, someone beat me to it.
