Anti-gay Republican Senator Roy Ashburn -- the man who was arrested last week on a DUI charge after visiting Sacramento gay bar Faces -- confirmed today that he is, in fact, a homosexual.
Sacramento Bee reports that the Senator, who has been on leave since his arrest, told KERN radio host Inga Barks in an interview this morning these simple words: "I'm gay." Ashburn went on to say, "Those are the words that have been so difficult for me for so long."
Explaining his vile voting record against gay, Ashburn explained that "his votes were a reflection of how the majority of voters in his conservative district would have wanted him to vote." Ashburn's checkered civil rights record includes voting against a Senate resolution declaring Prop 8 unconstitutional, thrice shooting down the creation of Harvey Milk Day, voting against recognizing out of state same-sex marriages, and opposing "an expansion of the state's insurance laws to include sexual orientation as a protected class."

My God. It never ends with these degenerates.
Not work-friendly, I imagine.
perverts, liars, adulterers, and tax cheats. Throw them all out in 2010.
Okay folks. Lets open the closet and y’all fall out.
Just when you thought CA GOP couldn't find its a55 with both hands...
He’s gay? no kidding.
I won’t click on the link. But I think that he should been clear on his orientation from the beginning and explained his reasoning for his votes.
I know where Faces is. When I lived in Sacto. I had an office a block away. I had to walk by it to get to the Mini-mart/liquor store. I still recall the stench from that place when you walked by. No, I never went in.
THAT WOULD BE ‘STATE’ SENATOR!!!!!!!!!
OK- so he’s gay? Do we as (mostly) republicans show prejudice because of that?
Are we the homophobes and racisits they accuse us of being? judging by the comments here, I am not sure
His sex life has never been an issue, as far as I can tell. and his voting record reflects what the conservatives in his community would have wanted, which is his job.
I have nothing against a conservative gay in our party. I am just against the liberal activists who want to recruit and push homosexual agenda on those who don’t want it for themselves or THEIR CHILDREN.
Disclaimer: I have a family member who is gay and I love her as much always, and I also am extremely happy that she has found a wonderful partner, who I also like very much and welcome into our family.
I just don’t understand how he could be happy considering the mess California is in.
Go figure, finally a Republican who represents his constituents and votes as they want him to vote, turns out to be a homosexual........
What the heck, I'd vote for him again..........
Whoa...that had me doing a double-take...
Get rid of the F ing fruitcakes. There is no room for these dirt bags in this party. God made man to be with woman and woman with man. The sick perverts, kick’em all out.
