You’re Out!:: Noted Gay Journalist Removes Closet Door Of Anti-Gay GOP Representative
What’s a career homophobe and long suspected closet case to do when caught in the shower with another man? If you’re a certain Republican congressman from Illinois, pray to God that nobody notable finds out. As the old saying goes "God answers all prayers and sometimes the answer is ’no’." Such is the case with GOP rising star Aaron Schock.
In a lengthy post on his Facebook page in front of an audience of 5,592 followers, noted gay CBS journalist Itay Hod outed Illinois congressman Aaron Schock, calling out the two-term politician on the hypocrisy of an alleged recent sexual exploit in light of his long anti-gay voting record.
The post, which is written in the style of a gossip column blind item starts
"people always say, no one has the right to out anyone. that coming out is a private matter. i disagree. as you can imagine, not a very popular opinion. but bear with me.
here’s a hypothetical: what if you know a certain GOP congressman, let’s just say from Illinois, is gay... and you know this because one of your friends, a journalist for a reputable network, told you in no uncertain terms that he caught that GOP congressman and his male roommate in the shower... together. now they could have been good friends just trying to conserve water. but there’s more. what if this congressman has also been caught by tmz cameras trolling gay bars. now what if you know that this very same guy, the darling of the gop, has also voted against repeal of don’t ask don’t tell, opposed the repeal of doma, is against gay marriage; and for the federal marriage amendment, which would add language to the us constitution banning gay marriage and would likely strike down every gay rights law and ordinance in the country?
Are we still not allowed to out him?"
Hod then turned his ire on his colleagues in the media.
