    Soon, a new name will pop up on Mike Rogers's hit list. Larry Craig wasn't "the first on my list," the gay blogger says. And the Idaho senator, who announced his resignation Saturday, "won't be the last." Rogers, sitting on a club chair in his Northwest Washington apartment, is basking in the attention. For three years now, he's been a feared one-man machine, "outing," he says, nearly three dozen senior political and congressional staffers, White House aides and, most damagingly, Congress members on his blog. On Capitol Hill, a typical phone call from Rogers -- "Are you gay?" he'd ask...

    GayPatriot Goes Silent March 28, 2005 GayPatriot, the anonymous gay Republican blogger, has officially signed off. In a statement, no explanation was given. With GayPatriot's permission, I am now able to recount the real story. On Friday, GayPatriot posted "WANTED: GAY TERRORISTS" in which he identified gay activists and bloggers John Aravosis (Americablog) and Michael Rogers (BlogActive) as terrorists. Wanted for crimes against the gay community. Wanted for repeatedly conducting outing witch hunts against gays who do not believe in radical liberal anti-American ideals. For repeated violations of privacy of gay Americans. For conducting systematic civil liberties attacks on gay...

  • The OutingDavid Dreier and his straight hypocrisy

    The latest target of a Capitol Hill outing campaign — designed to expose closeted homosexual Republicans who oppose civil rights for gay people — is San Gabriel Valley Congressman David Dreier. The powerful 12-term congressman — chairman of the House Rules Committee, chairman of the California Republican House delegation, co-chairman of Californians for Bush, chairman of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s transition team — is in the cross hairs of Mike Rogers and his Blogactive.com Web site, whose outing campaign has already forced one GOP congressman out of politics. Representative Ed Schrock, a reactionary from Virginia, ended his re-election campaign last month...

    RICHMOND, Va. (Aug. 31) - Republicans selected state Del. Thelma Drake Tuesday to replace U.S. Rep. Edward L. Schrock on the November ballot, a day after he dropped out of the race amid claims that he is gay. The Republican Committee for Schrock's district gathered Tuesday to hastily vote for a nominee who could take on Democrat lawyer David B. Ashe in the Nov. 2 election. Drake, a real estate agent, is a reliable member of the state House's conservative GOP majority. Schrock, 63, a married retired Navy captain who was popular among conservatives, cited unspecified ''allegations'' for his surprise...

    Blog threat as Schrock quits seat By Jonathan E. Kaplan The blogger who triggered yesterday’s resignation of Rep. Ed Schrock (R-Va.) by spreading rumors that he is gay promised “there’s more to come.” The gossip first surfaced two weeks ago on a Washington, D.C.-based Web log, or blog, Blogactive.com. The site links to an audio recording that it claims is Schrock calling into the MegaMates/Megaphone Line, a telephone service that men can use to meet other men. After the GOP push to ban gay marriages, Blogactive.com began “outing” political aides and has since targeted lawmakers who voted for legislation on...

    VIRGINIA BEACH — Republicans reeling from U.S. Rep. Edward L. Schrock's decision not to seek a third term picked a state delegate from Norfolk today to replace him on the Nov. 2 ballot. The Second Congressional District Republican Committee voted by secret ballot to nominate Del. Thelma Drake, a real estate agent, to take on Democrat lawyer David B. Ashe. Schrock, 63, a married retired Navy captain who did two tours of duty in Vietnam and was popular among conservatives, cited unspecified "allegations" for his surprise decision to retire Monday. A Web log has published claims since Aug. 19 that...

    WASHINGTON, Sept 10 (Reuters) - A group of House of Representatives Republicans said on Wednesday that Democrats criticizing the Bush administration's plan to stabilize Iraq were damaging that effort and endangering U.S. troops. But as administration officials were set to lobby for an $87 billion spending package largely for Iraq, some Republicans questioned whether the State Department should take a larger role in Iraq's reconstruction and whether Baghdad should have to pay back some of the money. Rep. Ed Schrock of Virginia told a news conference that "all the sniping we've been hearing on TV about the president and how...
