NOW, He Supports the LGBTQ Community

It's like he's had a change of heart, err, mind, err, sexual proclivities, err, something.  Another good Repug confesses:

Former Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) opened up about his sexuality on Instagram Thursday, confirming in a lengthy post that he is gay. 

Schock, who resigned from Congress in 2015 amid claims he misused taxpayer funds, said the news would come as no surprise to his family, friends and associates. Still, he said he felt compelled to make a public announcement to remove any doubt and to finally validate who I am as a person.  

During his time in office, Schock opposed marriage equality and the 2011 repeal of dont ask, dont tell, which prohibited gay and lesbian people from serving openly in the U.S. military. He also voted against the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which expanded the 1969 federal hate crime law to include victims targeted because of their sexuality and gender identity and was signed into law in 2009. 


Though Schock said via his Instagram post that hed support LGBTQ rights in every way I could if he were active in Congress today, he didnt formally rescind any of his previous stances on queer issues. 


I realize that some of my political positions run very much counter to the mainstream of the LGBTQ movement, and I respect them for those differences, Schock wrote Thursday. I hope people will allow for me the same.

Funny, "Snippy" had to do a double check. Thought the article was about his former scumbag Republicunt Congressman Ed Schrock.



Hit the road Jack, and don't come back no more no more...
