Time to come out and get some fresh air


Come on out, you'll feel better


BlogActive is celebrating Coming Out Day, and we didn't want leave any of the homophobes behind.Especially the gay ones.

It's a special day for the lesbian and gay community: National Coming Out Day. Since we know some anti-gay political folk are unable to wrap their little minds around the concept of "coming out," blogACTIVE.com is happy to help. Here's the list of all thirty individuals blogACTIVE.com has reported on in the past 15 months. At the rate of two per month, the site has been shaking up politics in Washington and around the USA.

I've been asked a few times, "How many people have you reported on?" While I've never kept a count, I did go through the blog and made a list. In 15 months of reporting on hypocrites in the government, blogACTIVE has told the stories of 30 individuals:

United States Representatives
US Rep. Ed Schrock (VA)
US Rep. David Drier (CA)
US Rep. James McCrery (LA)
US Rep. Mark Foley (FL)

Senior Republican Staff
Jay Timmons - National Republican Senatorial Committee
Dan Gurley, National Field Director, Republican National Committee
Jay Banning, Chief Financial Officer & Director of Administration, RNC

Senior Senate Staffers
Robert Traynham, Rick Santorum (PA)
Jonathan Tolman, James Inhofe (OK)
Kirk Fordham, Mel Martinez (FL)
Dirk Smith, Trent Lott (MS)
John Reid, George Allen (VA)
Paul Unger
, George Allen (VA)
Linus Catignani, Bill Frist (TN)

Senior House Staffers
Jim Conzelman, Rep. Mike Oxley (OH)
Lee Cohen, Rep. Melissa Hart (OH)
Robert O'Conner, Rep. Peter King (NY)
Pete Meachum, Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (FL)

Bush Administration Staffers
Israel Hernandez, office of Karl Rove and Assistant Secretary of Commerce
Jeff Berkowitz, Bush Liaison to Jewish Community

Local Elected Officials
Vincent Gentile, NY City Council
The rest of the gang...
Ed Koch, former mayor of New York City
Jennifer Helms-Knox
, Judge in NC campaign staffer for Jesse Helms Campaigns
Armstrong Williams, Talk show host.
Matt Drudge, Headline writer
Steve Kreseski
, Governor Bob Erlich of MD
Chip DiPaula
, Governor Bob Erlich of MD
Lee LaHaye
, the chief financial officer of the Concerned Women for America
John Schlafly
, Eagle Forum legal staff (son of Phyllis Schlafly



So why did I run this list? Because the people on it aid homophobes or support them. You don't get a free pass to make other people's lives miserable because you don't like yourself or think you're an exception, as in they will hate other people, but not you. Bullshit.
