Guess Who’s Gonna Welcome Rep. David Cicilline To Congress?

When David Cicilline, the Democratic former Providence mayor replacing Robert Kennedy, officially takes office today as part of the 112th Congress, and becomes the fourth sitting openly gay federal lawmaker, the man to perform his swearing in will be the House’s new speaker, Republican Rep. John Boehner, the man who has such a problem with homosexuals that he refused to vote in favor of the Defense Department’s spending bill in 2009 because it included the Matthew Shepard Act, and refused to vote in favor of the spending bill in 2010 because it included DADT’s repeal. Cicilline should recite the oath of office, shake Boehner’s hand, and then douse it in Purell.

      He’s replacing Patrick Kennedy, not Robert. Robert died in 1968. Patrick is Edward Kennedy’s son.

      I’m pretty sure JD is the worst writer at Queerty. Virtually everything JD posts is wrong
