George Rekers Has Company: The Top Ten Outed Right-Wing Homophobes
Unless you've spent the last 48 hours holed up in a French B&B humping the homosexuality right out of your rent-a-boy, you've probably heard about Miami New Times' exposé of gay-bashing evangelist George Alan Rekers' European tryst with a male prostitute.
Is there any homophobe out there that's not secretly had sex with men? Buju Banton, put your hand down. Catching counts.
Let's induct the top ten members into the Hall of Hypocritical Homophobic Homosexuals:
10. Richard Curtis, Republican member of the Washington state House of Representatives
How anti-gay is he? He voted against domestic partnerships for same-sex couples and voted against a bill prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination in a workplace.
How gay is he? He had sex with a gay male porn star -- oh, and Curtis wore lingerie under his clothing.
Totally gay quote: "I have not had sex with a guy."
Bob Allen: Racist, or just gay?
9. Bob Allen, Republican member of Florida House of Representatives
How anti-gay is he? Supported a ban on same-sex couples adopting children.
How gay is he? Offered twenty bucks to a male undercover cop in exchange for letting him perform fellatio on him.
Totally gay quote: "This was a pretty stocky black guy, and there was nothing but other black guys around in the park," Allen, on the cop who he thought was trying to rob him. See, he offered to blow the guy because he feared he "was about to be a statistic".
8. Glenn Murphy, Jr., Chairman, Young Republican National Federation
How anti-gay is he? Dude, he's a Young Republican.
How gay is he? Got another Young Republican drunk and performed fellatio on him while he was asleep.

7. Roy Ashburn, Republican California state senator
How anti-gay is he? He voted against a day honoring slain gay rights activist Harvey Milk, voted against expanding anti-discrimination laws, and voted against gay marriage.
How gay is he? After being caught drunk driving with a male lover in the car, he publicly came out of the closet.
Totally gay quote: "I felt my duty is to represent my constituents, not my own point of view, not my own internal conflict."
6. Edward L. Schrock, Virginia Congressman
How anti-gay is he? He supported asking military recruits about their sexual orientation in order to bar gay soldiers.
How gay is he? Caught on tape soliciting sex from a male prostitute.
