MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Dan Innis' husband persuaded him to run for the U.S. House.

It didn't matter that Innis, a former business school dean, faced an aggressive Democratic incumbent, GOP colleagues who oppose his right to marry, and history — no Republican ever has been openly gay when first elected to Congress.

"He said, 'You've got to do this,'" recalls Innis, running in the 1st Congressional District, which covers most of eastern New Hampshire. "He said, 'You need to take this opportunity and see if you can make a difference.'"

Innis plays down his sexuality as a campaign issue, but acknowledges the historic undertones. He is among three openly gay Republicans nationwide expected to run in this year's midterm elections. None has an easy path to Washington.

Republicans who are gay should always be out of the closet. If they are not, unlike democrats, they can be blackmailed.

Tokyo Rove’s money machine will no doubt be spewing bills into their campaign coffers.

Doesn’t matter to me.

If he’s on my ballot, it’s going to be another blank line.

Dan Innis' husband...

So we can assume that Dan is on the receiving end of the fudgepacking?

Definitely true.
In fact, if they even THINK they had ‘H’ tendencies, better ‘fess up cause that 4th of 5th pat on the butt to a teammate will be take the wrong way.

Like the 3 dads standing around ‘bragging’ about their sons, putting a new ‘face’ on gay pride.
.
“My son is QB of the team and they made it to the Conference Championship”
“My son came out with a 4.0 and made the Honor Roll”.
“MY son has taken it up the chute from the Dean. I have never been prouder of him”.

I am sure we had tons of gay Congressman. But it was in a time when where people put their penis was not an issue about which we spoke openly.

Of course now, we have our kindergarteners check off their sexual preference box.

They have taken over nearly everything. May as well take over the republican party, too. I wish Christians would put this much effort into life.

Hmmm, why do I think that these might be some kinds of setups?

Dan Innis doesn’t HAVE a husband. The fake journalist who scribbled this crap needs logic lessons.
