Blogger Known for Outing Homophobic GOP Lawmakers Says Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) is Gay
Mike Rogers, a prominent blogger with a superior track record for outing anti-gay, hypocritical politicians, outed Wyoming Senator John Barrasso yesterday, tweeting:
Barrasso, a twice-married Presbyterian with three children, has voted against the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' and against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. He has also bragged about his votes against gay marriage.
Said Barrasso in 2004: “I believe in limited government, lower taxes, less spending, traditional family values, local control and a strong national defense. In the state Senate, in addition to receiving an ‘A’ rating from the NRA, I have voted for prayer in schools, against gay marriage and have sponsored legislation to protect the sanctity of life.”
Does Rogers have more up his sleeve? When asked for a statement by activist Will Kohler, Rogers replied, "My tweets stand on their own."
Rogers said in June that at least three anti-gay members of Congress are gay and that one would be outed soon.
Our Kyler Geoffroy noted Rogers' record back in June:
The blogger's most high-profile triumphs include the 2004 revelation that then Rep. Ed Schrock (R-VA) was leaving voicemails on a gay hook-up service, prompting the two-term congressman to retire. In October 2006 he wrote that three men informed him they had sex with then Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) in bathrooms at Union Station. Before making his allegations against Craig public, two of his three sources signed affidavits saying they would come forward if Rogers was taken to court.
