Married Republican paid $84k sexual harassment settlement, while claiming marriage too sacred for

gays



A Republican lawmaker who said marriage is “too sacred” for gay people sexually harassed an employee while married to his wife.
Blake Farenthold is the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 27th congressional district, and has been an unfaltering opponent of marriage rights for gay pepole. 
But the Republican lawmaker, who has two daughters with his wife Debbie, might not be such a great practitioner of those sacred ideals himself.
Politico reports that the House official used $84,000 of taxpayer money to secretly settle a sexual harassment claim brought by his former communications director.
