Watch: Pro-Gay Roy Ashburn Says He Won’t Be a Hypocrite Again


Republican state senator Roy Ashburn, recently outed after receiving a DUI while driving home from a gay nightclub, talked to NBC about how he'll no longer live as a hypocrite when it comes to casting votes.

Says Ashburn: ''My practice in my entire political career when it came to gay issues was to prevent any kind of spotlight from being shined my way, because I was in hiding. So casting any kind of vote might, could in some way, lead to my secret being revealed.... That was terrifying to me. It was paralyzing. So I cast some votes that have denied gay people of their basic, equal treatment under the law, and I'm not proud of it. I'm not going to do that again.''
