Ken Mehlman comes out

Posted By on Thu, Aug 26, 2010 at 6:28 AM

Ken Mehlman, the former Republican national chairman and George Bush's former campaign manager, says he is gay and an advocate of same-sex marriage. New York Times here. Fox News headlines it that Mehlman "admits" he's gay, as if confirming a criminal act.


“I and others worked very hard to expand the party to communities that had previously not been as amenable to the Republican message,” Mr. Mehlman said. “Obviously, I look back and wish I was in the place I am today and been able to do that with the gay community.”

Yes.
