    Republicans dump gay choice for US house majority leader

    According to this report, from Raw Story, a gay Republican, who was set to become the US house majority leader has been dumped by his party for the position:

    Sources tell RAW STORY that Dreier -- who was a shoo-in for the position -- was nixed for various reasons, in part because his sexuality would raise ire within the party ranks. A second reason cited is that it would have meant that Doc Hastings (R-WA) would have become Rules Chairman in Dreier's place, meaning the Ethics Committee would change hands midstream. This was seen by leadership as a bad move, sources say.
