Dreier: Gay & Ashamed
Hustler magazine will publish a blistering expose on closeted California Republican David Dreier in an issue that hits newsstands Friday. Blue Lemur reports that the article, “CONGRESSMAN DAVID DREIER: GAY & ASHAMED,” offers a handful of new details not previously reported, including a charge that high-level California Republicans have been aware of (and sanctioned) Dreier’s gay lifestyle for many years."
A couple of excerpts have appeared at BlogActive:
"Speculation began to spread, the sort that even a steady stream of party-arranged, photo-op female arm candy couldn’t deflect. Dreier never grew a beard, but word was he often had a pretty one on his arm."
A longtime Democratic adviser with numerous campaigns under his belt, [Randy] Economy said Dreier’s gay life is valid for discussion, since public policy that affects millions of people is at stake. “I know the pain that people go through in this process here,” Economy said. “But [Dreier] has got to deal with this stuff because now he is [advocating] positions against the community and against himself, and it’s not right. His lover is benefiting from it; therefore he’s benefiting from it, and that’s just not fair and possibly not legal.”
