“Over the weekend, CBS journalist Itay Hod decided he’d had enough of closeted politicians. In a long Facebook post, Hod ranted that the media has been muzzled from outing anyone for fear of repercussions from gay-rights organizations like GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign. He waxed on about an “Illinois congressman” with a virulently anti-gay voting history and claimed this congressman was caught in the shower with his male partner by a fellow journalist.
In case we weren’t sure who Hod was discussing, he linked to an article about Rep. Aaron Schock’s gayest Instagram photos. As of now, Schock’s Instagram account has been locked down and cannot be visited by the public. So viewers are saved the guilt caused by trolling through his buff workout pics.
The case of closeted Republican gays has long been a source of consternation among the LGBT community.
