Anti-Gay Republican Congressman Outed
It's happened again, folks. Another politician who gleefully casts votes against the gays turns out to be one.
At least that's what Mike Rogers says in his investigation of Mark Kirk, the Republican Congressman from Illinois who's up for Obama's Senate seat.
Kirk voted against the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (not all Republicans did so, by the way), but if you believe Rogers and his sources, Kirk has some 'splaining to do about his own life (though, of course, he was married to a woman, blah blah blah).
This is, after all, the man who blatantly lied about winning a very important honor from the Navy.
Makes you wonder if when Kirk says "The fleet's in!" he means the enema.
