Mike Rogers Outs Sen. John Barrasso

Outing kingpin Mike Rogers, who has an unblemished record in these things, yesterday posted the above tweet about GOP Sen. John Barrasso, who has a 15% rating from the Human Rights Campaign. Rogers has not yet expounded on his claim. Barrasso, a former Wyoming state senator, was appointed to the US Senate in 2007 after the death of GOP Sen. Craig Thomas. The following year he won the special election to fill the remainder of Thomas' term and he was reelected last year with 76% of the vote. With three children from his first wife, Barrasso remarried in 2008 before the special election. (Ahem.) He vehemently opposes same-sex marriage and voted against the repeal of DADT. Last fall the Vote Smart project wrote: "John Barrasso refused to tell citizens where he stands on any of the issues addressed in the 2012 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests from Vote Smart, national media, and prominent political leaders."
