Mike Rogers, who is best known for
outing closeted politicians in the early 2000s, has said that he's
gathering information on a closeted anti-gay congressman.
Rogers told U.S.
News & World Report that he's aware of three
anti-gay House members who are gay themselves.
“Oh, it's going to happen,” he said
of one outing, “because it has been happening for a long time.”
In comments to Michelangelo Signorile
at Netroots Nation, Rogers said an actual outing is far from reality.
“All I told the gentleman from U.S.
News and World Report is that I have somebody who is planning on
sleeping with a U.S. congressman and videotaping it secretly and
giving the videotape to me because the congressman is anti-gay, and
the next thing I know the media is all over it,” he
“Basically, there is a process in
place that is moving forward … that will more likely than not
provide us with information on a closeted congressman who has a zero
percent voting record [on gay rights].”
