The Larry Craig Files, Part 500

Self-loathing is the most pathetic form of hate. California state Sen. Roy Ashburn (R-Bakersfield), a self-proclaimed family values Republican, was arrested on a DUI charge Wedesday at 2 a.m.—after leaving a gay nightclub with an unidentified man in a state vehicle.

Ashburn is a fierce gay rights opponent who has used taxpayer dollars to organize anti-gay marriage rallies as part of his "Traditional Family Values" campaign. Cali Highway Patrol officers observed the homophobic hypocrite weaving and driving erratically in downtown Sacramento, after leaving Faces, a gay nightclub, with his trick.

On the bright side, if Ashburn ever decides to come out of the closet, at least he can now legally marry in Washington, D.C., which on Thursday, joined Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont in legalizing same-sex weddings.
