    I am loving your coverage in Washington, but I don’t think that Jared Polis is the first openly gay man to serve in congress. Barney Frank and I believe that there is or was one other guy as well. I am happy that Jared is there and doing a great job, but I still don’t think he is the first. I do home he is among the first of many!

    That was an embarrassing display of sycophancy. It was like watching a Russian TV interview with Putin. Corey, I know it was not an adversarial interview, but could you have at least asked one question that was mildly challenging?

    Nonetheless, there is a significant difference in being an openly gay incumbent outed after a scandal and one who initially ran as an openly gay condidate for office.

    I enjoyed that NYT interview with barney frank. He’s a clevery guy.

    Thanks so much, Corey, for brining up bi-national partner immigration. This issue is often forgotten even by the gay community, but those of us affected by it are desperately waiting for immigration reform so that we can unite with our partners, and so that we can have permanence and freedom to make choices in how we live our lives, as partners, together here in the U.S.

    Thanks so much!!

    Jim Kolbe (R-Az) represented the 6th and 8th Districts. He was outed after he voted in favor of the DOMA by gay rights activists. Steve Gunderson (R-Wi)was outed earlier in the same year on the floor of the House by a fellow Republican. Neither memeber is popular in the current party, and Kolbe has endorsed the Democrat that replaced him in both 2006 and 2008
