NYT: Foley scandal's impact on gay Republicans

RAW STORY
Published: Saturday October 7, 2006


A front page story slated for Sunday's New York Times will examine the Foley scandal's impact on gay Republicans, RAW STORY has learned.

"Every month or so, 10 top staff members from Capitol Hill meet over dinner to commiserate about their uneasy experience as gay Republicans," writes Mark Leibovich for the Times.

"For many of those men and other gay Republicans in political Washington, reconciling their private lives and public roles has required a discreet existence," the article continues. "But in the last week, the Mark Foley scandal has upset that careful balance."

On Saturday, the Palm Beach Post reported that the executive vice president of the gay Log Cabin Republicans thinks that the GOP is "not where it needs to be on issues related to gay rights."

Patrick Sammon said that he was "working to make the Republican Party more inclusive and tolerant of gay and lesbian issues."

"Gay and lesbian equality will be impossible to achieve without Republican voters," said Sammon. "Clearly, the Republican Party is not where it needs to be on issues related to gay rights."
