House Gays Will Not Cross The Pelosi

Tammy Baldwin, Jared Polis, Barney Frank, and even the House’s newest gay David Cicilline, from Rhode Island, are all throwing their support behind Nancy Pelosi remaining the Democratic leader in the House, albeit in the minority role. Polis tells the Washington Blade: “She has been a longstanding and ardent supporter of the LGBT community and I will do anything to help continue her leadership. The speaker has led the Democrats out of the wilderness before and I am confident she can do it again.” There you have it: When the gays find their Moses, they are not bailing on her.
