Out in Politics: Gay Republican Elected to City Ward.

In an intriguing sign of the times, an openly gay Republican has been elected to represent a ward in Springfield, Illinois.

Cory Jobe, an openly gay Republican, was elected alderman of the Ward 6 in Springfield on April 5, according to the State Journal-Register.

It seems that Republicans don’t want to see gays represented at CPAC – but they’re quite happy to have them elected. Taken together with gay presidential candidate Fred Karger‘s unexpected and remarkable straw poll win in New Hampshire last week, I’m beginning to sense that the GOP infighting over LGBT in 2012 could be quite some fun to watch.
