Anti-Gay SoCal State Senator Popped for DUI Leaving Gay Club

royashburn_1.jpgJust like closet smoker President Barack Obama is harsher to smokers and tobacco companies than any of his non-smoking counterparts (turning tobacco over to the FDA), closeted gays vote against gays. Happens all the time. So State Sen. Roy Ashburn‘s plight should surprise no one.

Sacramento’s local CBS reports:

Sources tell CBS13 a state senator from Southern California was arrested for allegedly driving drunk after leaving Faces, a gay nightclub in midtown Sacramento, early Wednesday morning.

The California Highway Patrol pulled over Senator Roy Ashburn at 2:00 a.m. Wednesday after an officer noticed a black Chevy Tahoe swerving at 13th and L Streets.

Ashburn, a father of four, is a Republican Senator representing parts of Kern, Tulare and San Bernardino Counties with a history of opposing gay rights

One way no one will notice your Republican drinking problem: do it in a gay bar.
