Anti-Gay Senator Admits What We Kinda Figured

California Senator Roy Ashburn admits to being gay after drunk driving arrest following night at gay bar

Considering he's been disgraced and all, Roy Ashburn, figured it was a good time to come out

California Senator Roy Ashburn has always been staunchly anti-gay. He's voted against establishing Harvey Milk Day, expanding anti-discrimination rights to cover sexual orientation, and allowing homosexuals to wed.

So it was somewhat surprising to hear him announce he's gay.

Ashburn came out after an arrest last week for driving drunk on the way back from a gay bar in Sacramento. Following the admission, he stated, "Those are the words that have been so difficult for me for so long."
