A record number of openly gay candidates are running for Congress.
The contenders all say that their sexual orientation is pretty much a nonissue on the campaign trail, Roll Calls Joshua Miller reports.
No one cares, said Kyrsten Sinema, who is openly bisexual and a top candidate in the Democratic primary in Arizonas 9th district. Its about my history of work in the district. They dont care three straws about the other stuff.
Other openly gay challenger candidates with a real shot of coming to Congress include: Sean Patrick Maloney, taking on freshman Rep. Nan Hayworth (R) in New Yorks 18th district; Mark Pocan (D), running in Wisconsins open 2nd district; Mark Takano (D), running for Californias new 41st district; and Richard Tisei (R), taking on Rep. John Tierney (D) in Massachusetts 6th district.
There are at least four other openly gay Congressional candidates this year, according to a count from the pro-LGBT-equality Human Rights Campaign, but all are long shots in states such as Idaho.

Openly bi-sexual means openly promiscuous, it means they will screw anything.
That’s what I was thinking. . .
A Parliament of Perverts to paraphrase P.J. O’Rourke.
Sound like the dumb b**** was KINDA "born that way". Geeesh. Sexual deviants. What a load.
Vastly over-represented on tv, in movies and music, and now in politics. WTH is happening to my country?
In the new America being a pervert might actually help get one elected. It's the new fad in a secular nation with no common national identity.
I still can’t believe it.
I remember when I first heard the name, Barack Hussein Obama. I said to myself, “Good luck buddy. There’s no way America is going to vote for anyone with THAT name, especially after 9/11.”
How wrong I was - and I still can’t believe he is in the White House.
If the biggest city in Texas can have an open lesbian mayor, all bets are off. I bet we will get a gay President before we get a conservative one. Still, there is a strength in holding on to righteousness in an ocean of sin.
Same here. I remember hearing about him 2004 and laughing at the fact that he was running for Senate. Then the idiots in Illinois elected the POS. Then the idiots all over the country elected him.
It’s nice to have a list of candidates to vote against!

Sorry Ms 1 percenter but a vast majority of Americans do care that those running for office are living a a life of perversion.
Amen. Believers don't need to be petulant when adversity comes because they aren't living for this world. I say "don't need to be" by faith, knowing full well my own whining nature. Thanks for the encouragement.
All I can say is wishful thinking in the south.
Just part of their agenda.
When the Rapture takes place all the perved out LIEberals will secretly miss all those Bible believers because the hedge of favor and protection will be totally gone. The leftists will have their nirvana when the SHTF full blast—they aint gonna like it but they will get their wish. Sayonara godless leftards.
And he’s gay too.
