Rogers Calls California Rep. Dreier a Gay Hypocrite, Promises More Names Soon

WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Mike Rogers, president of Proud of Who We Are and the nation's top gay activist blogger, last night reported that U.S. Rep. David Dreier (R-Calif.) is a gay hypocrite, during an evening drive-time radio interview on KABC in Los Angeles. He promised to name another closeted gay member of Congress and a U.S. senator shortly. The entire interview may be heard at http://www.ProudofWhoWeAre.org

Appearing on the Al Rantel Show, Rogers spoke of Dreier's secret life with a boyfriend, Brad Smith, who remains his highly paid congressional chief of staff. He said the pair took over two dozen trips worldwide and lived together for years, while Dreier cast a string of votes in Congress against gay rights, and supported the Republican Party's anti-gay crusade.

"There are an awful lot of gay men in the closet who are in positions in power who make unhealthy psychological decisions," Rogers said in the interview, referring to the recent Foley scandal.

Rogers asked why Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman has remained silent when his party is under attack over the number of closeted gay men in the highest echelons of the Republican Party.

"What are their real family values, these guys engaged in a cover-up of predatory behavior?" Rogers said on-air.

2. I'm starting to like this guy
didn't like the idea at first, but with Drier I'll make an exception.. doesn't this look like a Quid Pro Quo situation to anyone else?

His Lover is his political Operative.. Doesn't Hastert have the same scene, room mates?

3. GOP had seen this coming. Dreier has been absent from t.v. talk shows
for quite awhile. He had been one of the Republican's top spokespersons for the last few years.

4. Seems to be a contradiction to me...
Gays want to be open and accepted and, at the same time, many still accept the idea of not "outing" closeted gays? Why can't everyone come out of the closet? Otherwise, the argument for equality and acceptance appears in contradiction, seems to me. Just my opinion.

5. If it's the truth, what's the problem?
Why should the gay Pukes pretend to be something they're not?

Oh, because that's what ALL Pukes do every day - pretend to be something they're not.

As for Dreier, it couldn't happen to a more deserving person ...

6. Where is Mehlman on all of this? Why is he not speaking out??
Hmmmmm .... I guess he has no opinion and nothing to add.
