An update from across the pond:
In the race for the leader of England's Liberal Democratic Party, Simon Hughes admited he has had homosexual relationships in the past...just days after declaring he had no "skeletons" in his closet. Apparently there weren't any skeletons in the closet...it was just him in there! Sources say he plans to continue his bid to keep his leadership role, and he said that he feels this "does not disqualify me from doing a good job in public life and I propose to carry on doing that with the usual enthusiasm and determination." (something we preach daily in my job at the Victory Fund)!
Just a few days ago, another contender for the Presidency, Mark Oaten, resigned after threats that someone would reveal publicly that he used a "gay rent boy"(whatever that is... i'm thinking it's some queen who pays your rent for you...or something...)
I guess some British Parliament members can get what they want without having to "pay the rent"... good job Mr. Hughes!
