Gay Republican set to become House Majority Leader
Gay Republican set to become House Majority Leader
http://rawstory.com/news/2005/Gay_Republican_eyed_to_be...
AP is reporting that Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) is expected to at least temporarily succeed House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) as majority leader, following DeLay's indictment.

RAW STORY revealed Dreier was gay and lived with his chief of staff last year. LA Weekly then outed him, and he promptly disappeared from the television news show circuit. Our story, which originally ran Sept. 20, 2004, follows in full.

#

A Republican congressman from California who has repeatedly voted against gay rights measures is said to be gay himself, and at least three MediaNews Group newspapers are said to have instructed its reporters not to ask questions about the congressman's sexuality or how it relates to public policy.



Brad Smith, Dreiers chief of staff with whom he is said to have lived, is paid an unusually high salary relative to the chief of staffs of other powerful congressmen, including Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.

After RAW STORY ran an article suggesting that Congressman David Dreier, R-CA, might be gay, Hustler Magazine revealed that they planned a major expose exploring the conflict between the congressmans sexuality and his positions on gay rights.

Michael Rogers, the gay activist who outed Dreier Thursday on his site, blogACTIVE, said he was especially interested in talking with Brad Smith about his living arrangements with the Congressman here in DC."

8. his boyfriend made some sweet cash!
Smiths high salary has also raised eyebrows. During the last reporting period, Smith made $156,600, just $400 shy of the highest paid White House staff member, Assistant to the President Karl Rove, who made $157,000. It is also $400 less than President George W. Bush's chief of staff, Andrew Card, who receives an annual salary of $157,000.

By comparison, the chief of staff to Bill Young, who chairs the even more prominent House Appropriations Committee, makes $151,956, more than $4,600 less than Smith. The chief of staff to Republican James Sensenbrenner, Jr., who chairs the House Committee on the Judiciary, made $126,000. The chief of staff to the chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, made $100,696.

Congressman regularly voted against gay rights

The 52-year-old single congressman voted for the Marriage Protection Act in July, a measure that would have stripped federal courts of jurisdiction over challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act, which bans the federal government from recognizing gay partnerships. Dreier did not vote on the latest amendment to constitutionally ban gay marriage, and said he was against it.

Dreier, a Christian Scientist, also voted for the original Defense of Marriage Act in 1996 and a measure that banned gays from adopting in Washington, D.C. He has a 92 percent favorability rating from the Christian Coalition, and was elected with Ronald Reagan in 1980.

Hustler sent Dreier a letter Sept. 7 asking to interview him about the intersection of human sexuality, national politics and the conservative agenda. They have not received a response.

When asked if he was heterosexual on a Sirus Radio interview Aug. 31, Rep. Dreier refused to answer.

Im not going to talk about that issue, Dreier said. Thats really not what Im here about.

Viewed as shining star of House Republicans

Congressman Dreier is viewed as the Silicon Valley's man in Washington and an affable star of the House Republican leadership. In a July profile published by the San Jose Mercury News, the paper said he had become a leading public face for the party.

"More eloquent than understated House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., and more ingratiating than tough-talking Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, Dreier has emerged as the House GOP leadership's public face on television," a reporter wrote.

Charlie Black, an adviser to the Bush re-election campaign, told the paper the Bush attitude is, ''Get him on every show you can.''

39. This is rightfully a scandal, because putting a sexual partner on payroll
is a conflict-of-interest. In most cases, especially if they live together, then they share the wealth, and here it says they did.

I could tell you exactly why he "lurches Left" but it might make many posters upset.

*****************************

"The rumors are spreading that he is gay, are they credible?"

Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.....

************************

He does dress pretty.

**********************

I don't trust David Drier worth a damn. He's too clever by half. He's a do nothing on illegal immigration. What a pussy compared to Tom Delay. What a downgrade. I guess he can do the Majority Leader job full time since he has no family life due to his uhhhhhh tendencies.

"He was on Bill Maher's show recently wearing a pin-striped suit that would have looked better on Michael Jackson (or Richard Simmons). He also spent most of his appearance arguing that there was no excess government spending, that the deficit spending was justified based on current economic performance, and the real solution to cutting spending was eliminating "waste, fraud and abuse".

If the Bush regime is impeached, would he become our temporary president?- interesting. Can't be worse than what we have now. I really think that if itr happens the guys will clean house to some extent and cooperate to lead US out of the crisis.
I think it would be good for both parties, really.
Oops sory I forgot about Lincoln, and perhaps there have been others.
