He fessed up when this strategy failed, and -- in keeping with the high professional standards we ascribe to airport security -- the man's superiors made an Anthony Weiner joke and briefly suspended him.
Anti-Gay Congressman Has a Drink With a Bunch of Homosexuals
Ninety-year-old Ralph Hall, the oldest person to ever serve in the House of Representatives and an ardent opponent of gay rights, accidentally wandered into a Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund event like Mr. fucking Magoo.
